Is Camaro Getting a Makeover?

Back in 1964, Ford absolutely changed the automotive landscape with the introduction of the Mustang. The first Mustang was formally a 1965, but it was actually put on display at the World's Fair in New York in April of 1964.The incredible popularity of the Ford Mustang certainly got the immediate attention of Ford's competitors; in a blink of an eye there were a number of pony cars entering the marketplace. One of them was the Chevrolet Camaro, a car that made its debut for the 1967 model year; it was available in two body styles: a convertible and a sporty coupe.

Part of the marketing strategy for the Mustang was to create a car that would be appealing to women, because many families were becoming two-car households at that time. At the same time, they ultimately wanted to offer muscle for the power-hungry, and Camaro followed suit. To satisfy these dual objectives, there were a number of different Camaro engine options. The most tame engine option for the original Camaro was a 230 cubic inch six-cylinder, and the most powerful engine was the 427 cubic inch V8.

The Camaro made a big impression, and became one of the most sought after cars on the road for many years. It went out of production for a while after the 2002 model year, but returned in full force in 2009, and has been one of the most recognizable cars on the road since then.

I can personally say that the new Camaro got my attention over the last few years, and I took the plunge and bought one last year. It has crazy lines and contours, and, to me, it looks like a shark (especially since mine is silver). The car has a modern edge, but it also has a throwback feel.

Earlier today I was scouring the automotive news, and I came across a tease photo of the 2016 Camaro that is reportedly going to be unveiled in the Big Apple in April. I must say, though I have always loved the Camaro, the somewhat radical changes to the 2016 body style are not to my liking.

If the car actually looks like these pictures, I won't be upgrading in 2016. At the same time, if my suspicions are correct, my car will look cooler and cooler compared to current Camaro models as the next few years pass.
