  1. Tuck&Roll Says:

    Brexit was not about car sales, but about sovereignty lost. This too will pass and car sales and all other sales will return. Thanks to Niegel Fargage.

  2. G.A.Branigan Says:

    @ Tuck&Roll: Exactly.And,the sky ain’t falling either,lol.

  3. RumNCoke Says:

    Does the commemorative Camaro come with a mullet wig and a Lynard Skynard cassette? ;)

  4. Lisk Says:

    3- Plus a couple of gold chains and a cigarette lighter in the power port!

  5. XA351GT Says:

    technically the Camaro isn’t 50. They have produced 50 models years of cars. 1967-2002 and 2011 to present. 42 years by my count. That would be like saying the Challenger is 47 years old .

  6. XA351GT Says:

    Should read HAVEN’T produced 50 model years worth of cars. To me it has to be a unbroken line of production.

  7. G.A.Branigan Says:

    @ #6: Yup,UNBROKEN is the way it should be counted.Fail on gm’s,and ald for not catching it.

  8. CaliforniaBobZ Says:

    @ #3 I believe that cassette players were not available on the first generation Camaro. 8-Track players were.

  9. Kit Gerhart Says:

    2017 will be the 50th anniversary of the Camaro, but not the 50th model year. Promoting anniversaries of things is not uncommon. The 100th anniversary the Indy 500 in 2011 received “special mention” from the speedway, as did the 100th RACE this year.

  10. MJB Says:

    ” Even the louvers on the air vents are adjusted with touch-sensitive sliders.”? Am I in a car or at the helm of the Starship Enterprise?

    Too many electronics in that new Panamera.

    Knobs and buttons, please. Knobs and buttons. ;)

  11. Lawrence Driscoll Says:

    The government pressure to consolidate has definitely been ongoing in China, but state- owned companies have proven to be half-hearted when it comes to acquisitions and mergers, as witnessed by a dismal history of attempts to combine smaller makers with SOE giants.

    SAIC and Nanjing Auto certainly can’t be cited as a good example of a merger as the MG nameplate, that Nanjing brought with it, has struggled from the onset.

    Guangzhou Auto’s acquisition of Changfeng, and Gonow have been less than successful, with word that Changfeng wants back its independence, while Gonow’s dealers are now complaining of losing lots of money.

    FAW’s acquisition of Xiali never flowered, and Xiali is now in danger of extinction.

    Chang’an Auto’s acquisition of Chang’he and Hafei (originator of Coda’s Saibao body) was destined for failure from the beginning. It was wrought with labor, and other problems.

    BAIC finally rescued Chang’he and that merger, so far, has been a welcome exception to the pattern. Hafei on the other hand was not so lucky, and died a slow death.

  12. Kit Gerhart Says:

    They should make a VW, or maybe Skoda version of the Panamera, and sell it at an affordable price. That would be a great car, a roomy hatchback, with more performance than a Prius, about the only roomy hatchback now available in the U.S. market.

  13. Kit Gerhart Says:

    There was a 50th anniversary Thunderbird, but there weren’t 50 model years of T-birds. In fact, the 2005 “50th birthday” ‘Bird was the last year, unless they revive it again.
