50 YEARS CHEVY CAMARO | SIX GENERATIONS COMPETITION WITH THAT MUSTANG

As a constant reader of LTG blog you might know that I am a great CAMARO fan. My own I drive a 5th gen Cam in „bright orange“ – and I love this car so much from the first day on I got it 4 years ago! The history of the CAMARO started 1966, 2 years later than this mustang was introduced, but with the same concept: “long hood, short deck”. Since this there is a fight between this 2 cars for the domination of this so called “PONY CARS”. In 2017 the CAMARO celebrates its 50th birthday. Check the six generations below ... pics | GENERAL MOTORS | Auto Motor Sport
