On The Cover Review: 2012 45th Anniversary Chevrolet Camaro
In 1967, Chevrolet introduced the Camaro in answer to Ford’s popular Mustang. And even though there weren’t any Camaros built between 2003 and 2009, 45 years from the car’s debut is still a big deal. That’s why Chevrolet is commemorating the occasion with a special-edition 45th Anniversary package. GM does a nice job with all these badge-and-sticker upgrades, and the Camaro is no exception. A unique asymmetrical hood stripe, cool 45th Anniversary fender badges, and a black interior with the 45th Anniversary logo embroidered into the headrests, on the instrument panel, and on the sill plates, all set this version apart from a normal Camaro. The 45th Anniversary package adds a couple grand to the bottom line on either the 2LT V6 or the 2SS V8. Whichever way you go, you’ll have something unique that may just become a collector’s item some day. And even if it doesn’t, you’ll be showing the world that you have a certain respect for the heritage of Chevrolet’s most menacing muscle car.
