“This is an unprecedented opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at building the Camaro from the ground up,” said Todd Christensen, Camaro marketing manager. “Whether you’re a Camaro owner or simply a fan, it’s an event you won’t want to miss.”

At 7:30am on August 19th will be Camaros and Coffee. It will be held at the Joe Louis Arena Riverfront parking lot, at 19 Steve Yzerman Dr., in downtown Detroit. Space is limited to just 500 cars so if you want to go you had better get there early as it is first come, first serve. At 9:45am the 50th Anniversary edition Camaros will lead the Camaro Rally participants toward Woodward Avenue, where they can drive the famous cruise route into the afternoon.

On the 20th a special Camaro heritage display will be available at Chevrolet’s site for the Woodward Dream Cruise. If you will be near Detroit, Michigan then this will be the place to be for automotive enthusiasts.
