Happy Birthday Chevrolet Camaro!
07- 07- 2016
The Chevrolet Camaro was revealed fifty years ago today. Chevrolet’s 50th anniversary celebration includes tours of the Lansing Grand River plant where the Camaro is built (Aug. 18th), “Camaros and Coffee” in Detroit (Aug. 19th), and a Camaro heritage display at the Woodward Dream Cruise (Aug. 20th). If you are a Chevrolet Camaro fan and have always dreamed (no pun intended) of hitting up the Dream Cruise, THIS is the year to do it. The new 2017 Camaro ZL1 and 1LE models will be there.
Chevrolet has created an event website (click here) with more details and updates, so you can stay on top of what is happening with these three activities. Chief Engineer Al Oppenheiser will be at the Lansing Grand River plant, near downtown Lansing, Michigan for a discussion with various Camaro team members. A Camaro-only parking area will hold up to 500 cars, and there will also be an anniversary merchandise tent and on-site food vendors. Head over to www.CamaroFifty.com to reserve a spot. Camaros and Coffee takes place in the Joe Louis Arena Riverfront parking lot, with space for 500 cars on a first come, first serve basis. From there, a Camaro Rally to Woodward Avenue will be led by 50th Anniversary Edition Camaros.
Just like the 45th anniversary, Chevrolet has announced a special edition Camaro that includes distinct interior treatments with orange stitching and suede inserts, unique wheels, orange brake calipers, unique stripe package, unique grille, body-colored front splitter, and Nightfall Gray Metallic paint. The 50th Anniversary Edition will be available on the coupe and convertible 2LT with the RS Appearance Package and 2SS models.
