Thumbs up Texas Auto Writers Association hands 2010 Camaro the "2009 Car of Texas Award"

Featured on our blog homepage :

TEXAS AUTO WRITERS ASSOCIATION names 2010 Camaro the Official 2009 CAR OF TEXAS!

The Spring Challenge Writers Choice is an annual car competition sponsored by the Texas Auto Writers Association. TAWA members gather to judge cars and crossovers entered into competition by auto manufacturers. This year, some 40 Texas auto journalists and 17 manufacturers participated.

The 2010 Camaro competed against over 40 vehicles, most notably the 2010 Mustang and Dodge Challenger, to be named the 2009 Car of Texas. It also received the Best New Design award.

We Texans know a great car when we see one and I can't wait to go from Dallas to the border and back to Oklahoma on our long ass highways

Once again, I love being from Texas. Most Redass state in the Union.

The Camaro SHOULD be the COTY, but anything is possible in this day and age. I swear if another Prius is the COTY i am gonna flip

Thumbs up

Was there any doubt that the 2010 Camaro would kick all the other cars to the curb?


Texans do know their vehicles.

Pulled this from an email that I got from a local Houston dealer today. Looks like Houston is going to do the same thing that Dallas did last weekend.



Your HOUSTON AREA CHEVY DEALERS will conduct a unique caravan event, featuring the highly anticipated 2010 Chevy Camaro. More than 50 brand-new Camaros will parade across Houston, as a prelude to one of the most exciting vehicle launches in recent history.


In the early afternoon of May 7, the Camaro Caravan — under police escort — will depart Sam Houston Race Park. The Camaro Caravan will journey through selected destinations around Houston, targeting iconic destinations.

The Camaro Caravan will end its several hour tour at Minute Maid Park for the Houston Astros vs. Chicago Cubs game. The Camaro Caravan will be greeted by Camaro Club members from around the area and will park on the Avenida de Las Americas, where the Camaros will remain on display for the duration of the game.

As the Camaro Caravan route and additional details are confirmed, your HOUSTON AREA CHEVY DEALERS will provide you with updates, so you, too, can catch a glimpse as Camaro overtakes Houston.
