Muscle-car heaven: America’s 50-year love affair with the Camaro

From its days as Chevy's answer to the Mustang to its social media-heavy presence today, the Camaro has thrilled drivers for a half-century, reprorts Gogo Lidz.

The Camaro was born out of a volcano. We know this because 50 years ago, in the muscle car’s very first TV commercial, it rose from a caldera amid fountains of fire and a molten lake of lava. Fans of the sporty Chevrolet still debate how many martinis Don Draper downed while writing copy for that ad.

Sweet 64 Corvette From Stephen Carnes Founder Of The Cruzin Mooro Bay Car Show

I am Stephen Carnes, the founder of Cruzin Morro Bay Carshow.
morrobaycarshow.org
We just had our 21st show, May 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th. 540 cars registered. It's been featured in Car Craft Magazine.

My car is the 64 Corvette Stingray Roadster.
A Brief History, from their website page.
Cruisin' Morro Bay had it's beginnings in 1993 over a couple of cups of coffee, as Ocean View Garage owner Ron McIntosh, and Professional Engineer Steve Carnes, both antique car buffs, began discussing the idea of a car show in Morro Bay. They thought Morro Bay would be an ideal location, given the size and layout of the downtown area, as well as the attractions of the weather, beaches, golf course and natural surroundings.

Over a number of cups of coffee during the following three years, McIntosh and Carnes promoted the idea to their friends and business associates. Local businessman and Chamber of Commerce member Dave Tope and then Rotary President, Don Doubledee, both approved the idea and contacted their respective organizations. The City, the Police Department and Chamber of Commerce also offered their support for the car show. The Cruisin' Morro Bay Car Show Volunteer Committee is composed of citizens and representatives from the Morro Bay Rotary Cub, Police Department, Morro Bay High School and the Chamber of Commerce. Profits from the show activities are divided among these four recipients. The Police Department share is use to support Police Explorer youth activities.

The first Cruisin' Morro Bay Car Show in 1997 had 125 entries from various parts of California. The 2004 show had over 500 entrants from all over California and other surrounding states, as well as numerous vendors and trophy sponsors. The Morro Bay community is very supportive of the car show, not only through generous donations from local businesses, but from residents who participate and enjoy the show as well.
