The 2016 Camaro Will Be At Least 200 Pounds Lighter Than The Old One

The outgoing Chevrolet Camaro is good at a lot of things, like burnouts and sending people to jail for speeding and keeping up with Porsches on the race track.

Trans Am Is The Best Sounding Race Series

SRT isn't completely gone from motorsports. They're still alive and kicking with partner Miller Racing, who runs a sweet lime green Challenger in the Trans-Am series.

The Very First Camaro Was Apparently Birthed From The Earth's Core

Battle of the Misfits: The Camaro Z/28 versus the world

In his postmodern novel The French Lieutenant's Woman, John Fowles tells us that the heroine, Sarah Woodruff, was "the perfect victim of a caste society.

The Camaro SS 1LE Will Make You Weep For The Way You Looked At Life

I was resolute in my obstinance. The Chevy Camaro was old, archaic, primitive, and atrocious. I would hate it with all my being. It would not change me. I would change it. I would resist.

That Time I Met Dario Franchitti And Didn't Even Realize

We hosted a short press event yesterday morning at the Classic Car Club Manhattan. The good folks at GM brought along the 2014 Indy 500 Pace Car; a brand new Camaro Z28, y'know, the one that brakes so hard the tires lose traction on the wheels. Oh ya, and they brought Dario Franchitti too. » 3/26/14 9:08am 3/26/14 9:08am

Meet The Mini-Camaro GM Designed To Compete With The VW Beetle

I really love looking at stillborn car prototypes. And while it feels weird to type "love looking at stillborn" anything, there's just something about the alternate-world possibilities of them that make seeing these concepts fascinating. And I can't think of anything more fascinating than a Mini-Camaro made to compete… » 11/06/13 4:30pm 11/06/13 4:30pm

Nothing Says America Like A French Skier

American iconography is simple. A few fields of grain, a flag, maybe a bald eagle. How about a Camaro? Sure. And a pickup truck? Why not. And French alpine skier Jean-Claude Killy? I'm not so sure about that last one. » 10/19/13 8:58am 10/19/13 8:58am

Why Chevy Built, Destroyed And Finally Rebuilt The Camaro Z/28

Interviews from the Subculture: Juan Capo

When I was a kid, I remember driving through Atlanta with my family on our way to Florida. It was dark and the lights on the side of the highway illuminated a car pulling up on our left. The lights played over the bright green paint and I lifted my head from the window sill to look up at a Chevy Caprice. It wasn't… » 10/01/13 11:01am 10/01/13 11:01am

What's The Ugliest Steering Wheel?

The steering wheel is probably what drivers look at most, besides the road itself. It sits right there in front of you, and is the most important part of the car if you consider that without it, you can't really do anything. It's too bad, then, some of them are flops. What do you think is the ugliest steering wheel? » 7/20/13 1:28pm 7/20/13 1:28pm
