The Chevrolet Camaro was introduced after seeings Ford’s very successful pony car; the Mustang. The Camaro was first created as a 1967 Model Year car for the Chevrolet Motor Division under General Motors. There is much debate over what Camaro means, some common thoughts are a loose translation of the french word for “comrade” or “friend”. Chevrolet Project Managers were asked what the Camaro stood for and they stated that the camaro is “a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs”.
