Its hydraulic - what CruiserDan referred to is the clutch shares the brake system's reservoir for hydraulic fluid.
That's why the clutch pedal effort is light on these cars - hydraulic systems can exert much more pressure @ the clutch fingers with lower pedal effort vs. a cable or rod/fork actuated system. The slave cyl. is inside the bellhousing, behind the throwout bearing.
The 93+ Camaro/Firebird used this system with the T-56 transmission that preceded the Tremec TR6060 which is a further update from the T-56 design.
