Chevy Camaro: Reviving a Classic
The 1968-1969 Chevy Camaro is a classic, and for many, the ultimate expression of the ‘American Muscle Car.’ Taking its design cues from that legendary collectible, the new 2009 Camaro is one heck of a dream machine. Masculine and menacing, sleek and sporty, this beauty is a definite head-turner. While I was at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, I had the opportunity to get up close and personal with the car and its designers, Brian Smith and Jeff Perkins, who gave me an look at the styling and performance of the convertible.
Reporter’s Notes: We must be making quite an impression on the large automakers with our content here on The Next Gear. So much so that GM invited us for an all expense paid trip to Detroit to cover the North American International Auto Show. While there, they wined and dined us and gave us unprecedented access to designers, high level corporate bigwigs and company spokespeople, yet with no requirement that we publish anything about them, only that we disclose this enticement. It was an opportunity we are happy to share with you, our audience. I encourage you to leave your feedback!
