Oil prices were rising and the muscle car era was coming to a close.
1972 marked the last year a big block was offered in a Camaro and sales of those were poor at only 930 units. 1972 also was the last year of the SS (Super Sport) package, replaced in 1973 with the LT, which was eventually replaced with the Berlinetta model in 1979. The Z28 package continued, although evolving more into a handling package than a power upgrade. The RS (Rally Sport) continued through almost the entire second generation, being discontinued only in the final year; 1981.
