That is a great list but it is not complete as the also made a version of the Camero called a Berlinetta. Also don't see the Z-28 listed, nor the 1954 Concept Corvettes, specifically the Corvette Nomad wagon. http://www.corvettes.nl/gm_prototypes/nomad/ and Corvette Corvair http://www.corvettes.nl/gm_prototypes/corvair/index.html :)

In North America, Chevrolet also produced a version of the Chevrolet Camaro called the Berlinetta, from 1977 to 1986. The model offered European styling touches to emphasize the interior rather than the performance of the car, which had long been the main selling point of the Camaro.

Good information, go to the list I provided from WIKIPEDIA and add it please - very cool.

Mickey, it might pay you to drop a line to your local vintage or veteran auto club. They generally have a few guys that seem to know all the insides and outs of all the early makes and models including the "one-offs".
