Take your car, go to France through the channel tunnel and have nice days, welcome.

NB: a very very very long and complex history between France and UK !
good and bad history, peace and war :(
A very close history between UK and Normandy in the middle ages (Example: Guillaume le Conquérant, Duke of Normandy and King of England too)

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...
Did you forget that Canada had a big part in this too?? Not just America

Like said Murena, we didn't forget all the nations who landed on Normandy Beaches during this period, especially Canadian soldiers.

So many to say about this event, so many to thank, it's not easy to write a short text to well congratulate face to this great event !

We didn't forget too the landing on Dieppe of canadian Soldiers 19 august 1942
A terrible sacrifice !!!
Probably we will make a meeting in Dieppe the next years.

Why a meeting in camaro ? Well, it's our small contribution to remember the past.

The Quebec expression "je me souviens" is a message to not forget the past, his roots !
