Chevy Camaros are classic muscle cars that have been burning up American highways and backroads since 1967.

Designed and developed to compete with Ford’s Mustang, the Camaro was first buzzed about under the codename “Panther.”

Unveiled at a General Motors press conference at Detroit’s Statler-Hilton Hotel, Chevy officially introduced its new car as the Camaro.

When automotive journalists asked what exactly a Camaro was, GM executives replied, “a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs.”

And so it began. The competition between Chevrolet and Ford for muscle car domination.
