Camaro Wins-Top Collectible Award -- Detroit Free Press 12/5

Another Award

Becky


Detroit Free Press
Posted: Dec. 5, 2010


Camaro called a Top Collectible

STAFF AND NEWS SERVICE REPORTS

Score another kudo for the
Chevrolet Camaro, which was named

Collectible Car of the Year
by the
Friends of the National Automotive
History Collection

at the Detroit Public Library this week.

The Camaro beat 12 other vehicles
that were introduced in 2010
.

"This selection is unique among all the 'Vehicle
of the Year' awards, because it is selected by car
buffs who know what future collectors will
value," said Charles Hyde, NAHC board of
trustees chairman. "We asked our members to
predict which of this year's new vehicles will turn
heads in the Woodward Cruise of 2035."

Camaro designer Tom Peters will receive the
award at the NAHC's holiday reception Thursday
at the Skillman branch of the Detroit Public
Library, 121 Gratiot Ave. in downtown Detroit.
The Skillman branch is home to the NAHC, the
world's largest public archive of automotive
materials.

Previous winners of the award include the 2009
Ford Flex, '08 Dodge Challenger, '07 Dodge Viper
SRT10, '06 Pontiac Solstice and '05 Ford
Mustang. Vehicles built in North America are
eligible for the award.

I dont know, they gave this award to Ford Flex, Challenger not srt-8, and Ford MUstang-not even Shelby just Mustang? I dont know, but I guess an award is an award.

Well, the Flex is very unique in its styling -- the '08 Challenger was ONLY SRT8s, and they limited the production that year to 6000 units. And the GT500 Mustang did not exist in 05 when the 'retro' Mustang was released.

Ok, good points...Not sure how ours would be collectible against that 6000 unit production number of the challenger. We have a lot of them out there.

This is why I encourage all owners, to get out there, drive the wheels off of your Camaro. Beat the heck out of it while you are at it also......


The more that get destroyed ,by irresponsible behavior, the more valuable the rest of ours will be! LOL

hey now! I wish I could afford to garage my car most of the year, but I'm not yet that well off. If I end up really loving the Camaro, I'll probably buy a used Z-28 and keep it as a garage queen. I love my SS, but I am not going to be able to keep it pristine. I will just have to love driving it everyday instead!

If I understand this award correctly. It's like saying in 1955 or 1967 that this body style of that generation will be a legion in 25 years. So the 2010 Camaro and the rest of the Generation 5 Camaros will more than likely be collectibles then. This award wasn't meant to point out certain low number models like the Yenkos.

The best thing that can happen for us is a Gen 6 Camaro in 2014. A four year run will give us about 400,000 cars versus the 750,000 or so from 67-69. Doesn't really matter much, I hopefully will be giving mine to a grandchild sometime down the road that will show it off in 2035. These should be kept in the family at all costs.

I secretly hope they get rid of the V8, but only after I have a ton of money and have bought all the V8 cars that I like If they make the 6th gen with a V8 it will likely be just as collectible as the 5th Gen, as long as they don't make the 6th gen uglier 6.2L V8s won't be around in your average car for much longer. We only have so much oil and when oil becomes so expensive that your average joe can't afford to buy 18gal of gas every 2 weeks, V8s will go the way of the dodo except in luxury and commercial vehicles.
