The 1979 Camaro was very much like the popular 1978 model. The Z28
received a front chin spoiler and more agressive looking graphics.
Apparently the public loved it. The 1979 Camaro outsold any previous
year. The LT left the lineup and the Berlinetta took its place.

California emission Z28s were not available with manual 
transmissions.  All Camaros received a redesigned dash.  The blower
type rear window defroster was replaced with a grid on the window.
