DELPHOS — Chevy’s Camaro debuted in 1967 as direct competition to Ford’s Mustang. Some claim it was a rip-off of the Ford Mustang. Whatever it was, it worked and worked well for Chevy. The Chevy Camaro is one of the most popular cars today. For more than 30 years, the Camaro has been a performance icon with a muscle car image. Part of the fourth generation Camaro, 1999 saw Chevy remaining true to its pony car roots. The Camaro was restyled in 1998, and the sports car look and performance-oriented engine and affordable price compared to exotic sports cars, made the Camaro a coveted icon. Camaro entered 1999 as the epitome of performance heritage.
Curtis Mooney, of Delphos, brought his 1999 Chevy Camaro to The Lima News’ Real Wheels Cruise-In. He has owned it for two years. Mooney says his favorite memories are being parked in the back row at the drive-in movie!
