The Chevrolet Camaro is a classic American automobile.

The Camaro was first shown at a press preview in Detroit, Michigan, on September 12, 1966, and later in Los Angeles, California, on September 19, 1966. The public introduction of the new model was on September 26, 1966. It officially went on sale in dealerships on September 29, 1966, for the 1967 model year.

The classic car was designed as a competing model to the Ford Mustang and shared its platform and major components with the Pontiac Firebird, which was also introduced in 1967.

Four distinct generations of the Camaro were developed before production ended in 2002. The fifth and sixth generation Camaros received a complete redesign and new platform.
