Camaro ranks 8th in all time sales for GM

When you consider how long GM has been in business, with all its brands here and overseas, I think its pretty impressive that Camaro ranks 8th on the list:

In that case you would have to include the Bel-Air, Biscayne, 110, 210 and Caprice and all the old full sized chevys in with the Impala..Right?

Seriously?! I don't recall ever watching that video, but I'm not suprised to hear that.

In its 100 years in business, General Motors Corp. has sold nearly a half-billion vehicles across the globe. The top sellers as GM approaches its 100th birthday Tuesday:
Vehicle Sales
1. Chevrolet Impala 14 million plus..... mass market car: designed to sell in volume
2. Opel/Vauxhall Corsa 12 million plus ..... mass market car: designed to sell in volume
3. Opel/Vauxhall Astra/Kadett 12 million plus ..... mass market car: designed to sell in volume
4. Oldsmobile Cutlass 11.9 million ..... while not mass market car, the Cutlass was Oldsmobile's "every man's" car... its a shame they chose to keep Saturn instead of Oldsmobile.
5. Opel/Vauxhall Vectra 6.5 million ..... mass market car: designed to sell in volume
6. Chevrolet Cavalier 6.2 million ..... mass market car: designed to sell in volume
7. Buick LeSabre 6.0 million ..... mass market NAMEPLATE: has been on more Buick models than any other Buick name.
8. Chevrolet Camaro 4.8 million .... the only sports/musclecar on this list: marketed to a small segment, embraced by a broader market than GM ever expected.
9. OpelAscona/Vauxhall Vectra 4.4 million ..... how many versions of this nameplate are we going to put on this list?
10. Pontiac Grand Am 4.0 million ..... mass market car: designed to sell in volume
Source: General Motors Corp.

so of the top 10 sellers for GM, there's only one car on there that isn't a mass market car that was specifically designed to meet multiple duties and not come with a 4dr variant: and that is Camaro.

I wonder how many Camaros would have been sold if GM hadn't killed off the nameplate for 6.5 years?

I was actually going to say that, but you beat me to it... Chevy's Silverado/Cheyenne/Scottsdale/C-K series trucks would make this list look silly... if you even just counted up the Suburbans (and used the GMC Suburban and Yukon XL), it would get even funnier.

I really believe that they only counted the cars for this list... which is silly, because GM sells more than just cars... lol

The next stop is the east side....motel....."""

I can sit here and recite the Impala, but CAN'T remember the name and I'm going to be kicking myself when someone lends me a hand....

anyone?

The name of the song mentioned above is Regulators by Warren G and Nate Dog. Is that what you were looking for?
