NEWS: Chevy Camaro is a good sport, wishes Ford Mustang Happy 50th
Filed under: Coupe
It was 1966 when Chevrolet
launched its challenger to the wildly successful Ford Mustang
, the Camaro
. While the competition between the two brands was already healthy, the arrival of the Camaro set off one of the most intense, model-to-model rivalries in the industry.
That competitive spirit hasn't stopped Chevy and the Camaro from wishing Ford's iconic muscle car a Happy 50th Birthday as the Ford's April 17 anniversary rolls around. These two cars have been linked over the years, and while the rivalry took a break for a few years in the 2000s, today's competition between the Camaro and Mustang is as fierce as it's ever been.
You might recall that this friendliness when it comes to major milestones isn't too rare. Ford
put on quite a display
for General Motors' hundredth anniversary back in 2008. As the Camaro's fiftieth birthday approaches in 2016, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Mustang sending its best wishes to its Bowtie rival.
Take a look below
for Chevy's comments about the rivalry and a comparison with some other great rivalries from outside of the auto industry.Continue reading Chevy Camaro is a good sport, wishes Ford Mustang Happy 50th
