The Camaro has long been associated with speed, power, and respect on the road, however, there was a time when it simply could not compete with the Ford Mustang and Plymouth Barracuda. At the time that the Camaro was first produced, General Motors had a limit which prevented using an engine larger than a 400 cubic inch V8, much unlike its competition, which had no such restriction. Things changed under Don Yenko, who understood that there was a market for more powerful cars, and so began the story of the Yenko Camero, a modified version of the famous car line, produced under Yenko Chevrolet.

Yenko DeuceThe Yenko Deuce is a car of legendary proportions. On the rare occasion that any one of these 1970 vehicles is found today, it is cause for celebration among those who are passionate about classic American muscle cars. Part of what makes this car so special is the Yenko badge, but it is also the limited number of units made back in 1970 that makes it so rare today.
