In 1968 and 1969, the California and federal emissions requirements were the same and all cars were built to the same 50-state standard. The AIR system was installed on all L6 cars with manual transmissions, all small blocks with manual transmissions, and all Camaros with big blocks. (Chevelles and full-size cars with the 396/325hp engine and TH400 transmission were the only 68-69 Chevrolet big block cars that did not have smog pumps.) Only the automatic L6 and automatic small block Camaros did not have smog pumps, instead they had the simpler Controlled Combustion System. Generally speaking, an automatic car required less aggressive emission control than a manual transmission car because the engine load (and carburetor fuel metering consistency) was more stable and predictable.

Both were the 325hp models.

And that is exactly as I suspected!

If I were to guess....I think the smart decision would be to wait for the 6th generation. But not for any nostaligic reasons. Simply because I'm not convinced there's a place for a Z/28 (worthy of the name) in the 5th gen lineup....my .02.

No explanations are allowed, and no you can't take it back!! Once it has been spoken it is done.
