Do Women Love Muscle Cars?

Published Jan 8th 2007, 6:01pm by Jody DeVere in Featured Articles

Camaro The Chevrolet Camaro concept was the celebrated star of the 2007 GM Style event last night with it world premier during this star studded fashion show. A 60's throw back with an updated look and entirely new convertable design brought back memories of high school street car racing with perhaps the ultimate machine with a touch of class.

Chevrolet already has announced production plans for the Camaro, which will go on sale in 2009. A production convertible model will be added later that year.

I spoke with interior designer Micah Jones to get his thoughts on US consumers love affair and  passion  for muscle cars. He said, " The GM Camero concept design was built for confident, passionate buyers with an appreciation of the power of muscle cars and transends gender lines".
