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

Another Award

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.
