Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

Chevrolet Celebrates the Camaro’s 50th Birthday With Plant Tours, a Car Show, and Dream Cruise Events

The Chevrolet Camaro made its public debut on June 28, 1966, so it’s fitting that Chevrolet chose June 28, 2016, to announce a series of Michigan events commemorating the 50th birthday of the Bowtie brand’s pony car. From August 18-20, Chevrolet will host a Lansing Grand River plant tour, a “Camaros and Coffee” car show in Detroit, and a dedicated Camaro heritage display during this year’s Woodward Dream Cruise.

The original Chevrolet Camaro hit dealerships in late September of 1966, a little more than two years after Ford’s Mustang took the car-buying public by storm. By then, Ford had already sold over 1.2 million Mustangs (counting 1965 early production, 1965 late production and 1966 production), but the Camaro countered by selling almost 221,000 copies in its debut year.

The Camaro gets its golden anniversary celebrations.
