Meeting in Normandy on the D-Day Beach Landings - France

18 camaros had a "rendez-vous" on the D-Day Beach Landings this last Sunday, november 18.
A road trip which brought us from Bayeux to Omaha Beach and his monument, to Pointe du Hoc.
A sunny day gave us pleasure to drive along the Normandy coast aboard the camaros.

For the French owners of these camaros it was a way to spend a good time together, to remember our history and to honor all people who died during the Normandy landings. :flag2:
A great part of our history was happened there on these beach landings, France started to be free.

France and America are linked whatever happens.
The history shows us.
About one hundred and fifty years after Marquis de La Fayette & France helped George Washington & the young nation of America to keep its liberty face to the british empire (18th century), the America came to France on the Normandy Beach Landings to give back the liberty to the french & european people (20th century).

In France it exists a community of people who like muscle cars, like the Camaro. The muscle cars are like a symbol of freedom.
France gave the statue of liberty to America.
The America gave back the camaro !

Enjoy and welcome to France...

I visited that very spot some 13 years ago and i can still remember the feeling of sadness and my hairs standing on end! So many lives were lost there and you could really feel it in your bones. Awesome pictures of a place everyone should visit some day in their life. My Great Grandfather fought their as a Marine and it is absolutely hollowed ground!
Thanks for posting these great photos!

These pictures were made by all the owners who were present this day.
I'm sure they will read your comment on camaro5.

We have an excellent photographer who took pistures this day but we haven't saw yet his pictures.
We will post here asap.

On the following picture you can see our photographer in action

The name of this car CAMARO doesn't come from a french word ?

CAMARADE (french word for "friend") --gave--> CAMARO

If it's true, "friend" and "to share" is the same thing.

So in the name Camaro there's the spirit of to share

Absolutely amazing photos.

Visiting Europe and the many WWII monuments is very high on my bucket list. Not to mention the thousand-plus-year-old architecture in some places to top it all off.

It's interesting how, in that video, the brake lights (because they're LED) on the cars look like they're blinking. I know it's just a framerate thing.

I actually like that style of brake light, too
