It was a corporate favor. The president of Universal Studios is best friends with the CEO of Chevy.

Camaro sales are already falling.

The question is not preventing a fall, its stopping the fall and reversing it.

The decline has started.

Yeah, um... they couldn't even get the hp numbers correct in that vid, none of those figures are worthy, or should I say... nothing in that video is reputable enough for documenting. (I want that 2 min of my life back)

Commercials....

As for Dodge... kudos! You folks put together some of the best commercials out there. Love the attitude, the product, and the Red, White, n' Blue runnin' through your veins!

Ford, your commercials... eh, they pretty much blow! How many damn times do you gotta tell us "31 mpg". Alright already... geez! That said... your product is ok by me. I'll probably never own one... but America is alright with Ford representin' it.

As for a Camaro commercial... I'd love to see it! They don't need to, and in fact... not putting out a commercial might even create more 'buzz'. But just as a fan... I think the Camaro deserves its very own commercial. And it better be a worthy commercial... if/when!

Yeah, knowing the facts is different than knowing what the facts mean, and how to interpret them.

The Camaro trend is only slightly down for the past year... and given that last year ('09) was the first for the Camaro since '02, it is expected to take a drop. The fact that is has only slightly dropped, June to June, is amazing! And not to mention 2010 hasn't been a stellar year... but still putting out relatively good sales figures.

Overall, the fact that all 3 brands are doing well, or on the rise... tells me one thing. American quality and reliability is back on top!! Our politics may be for crap, but our product will beat the pants off anyone who tries to compete!

Buy American! (you won't regret it!)

Consistency is key. The car is still a hot seller, no matter what the competition is doing.

Keep in mind...still NO incentives of ANY KIND...no convertible, and no Z28.

This is mighty impressive. Over a year old, and still this strong...so much for the naysayers predicting an early death once enthusiasts bought their cars.

Tran,

Thanks for posting this information. I always check out the stats. Can you tell me if the 129K number is the final production number for model year 2010? Also, can you get the breakdown by model, trim package and color? For my 1969 Z, Chevy didn't keep statistics such as how many Z/28 Rally Sports in Garnet Red with black vinyl roofs were produced. I'd bet Chevy has those statistics now. Sure be nice to have for the documentation package I am creating.

I'm confused on the total production number. When I add up the cars produced from Mar 2009 to Jun 2010, I get 139103 cars. That's a difference of 9698 cars from the 129,405 car total you show.

As long as Camaro's are being made, they will always sell in big numbers, Camaro is king.

Just many people that were going to buy a new Mustang anyway held off buying one until the 2011 came out, as soon as the initial rush is over the sales will level off again... it will probably happen for the Camaro when the Vert and Z28 come out...

It's amazing how these June numbers has everyone worried about the Camaro and how we need commercials. They've started the 2011 model year on June 7th and gave no one information on ordering. Then they closed the plant for two weeks and know we still can not even build a 2011 on the website.

I do believe it's the 60s/70s again and they have something up their sleeve for the Mustang (to compete) in the coming months.
