Today, we are inaugurating a new feature here on the 1A Auto blog. Periodically, we will be spotlighting some really great resources out there in the automotive world, such as car clubs, owners groups, enthusiast communities, shows / events, and more that we think our devoted 1A Auto readers and fans might find interesting and useful. If you have a great automotive website or resource you would like us to share with the rest of the 1A Auto community, like and message us with suggestions on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/1AAuto.
Our first spotlight is on the Eastern Michigan Camaro Club. The Camaro was introduced to the world in 1966 and the rest is history as it has become one of the most famous cars ever made. This non-profit club was formed in 1991 to bring together Camaro owners and those who just plain love Camaros from the local area to gather at club meetings, exchange some laughs and experiences about their Camaros, do some cruising, and just have some fun. The club is also dedicated to sharing their love and passion from one of America’s greatest Muscle cars with others in order to further awareness and loyalty of the car. If you own a Camaro and happen to live nearby, check out their website for details about membership and more at http://www.emcamaro.org/Home.html.
The club also holds the longest running all-Camaro event in the United States each year – the CAMARO SUPERFEST. The show draws a few hundred Camaros each year and is also one of the biggest Camaro events in the U.S. and Canada. Last year, the show had over 400 participants! This year’s show will be held on July 4th, 5th, and 6th at the Riverside Park in Ypsilanti, Michigan and some of the proceeds go to charity; they are looking to raise $5,000 this year! One of the cool things about the show is that on Friday, they will be heading out to the Michigan International Speedway and allow participants to drive their Camaros on the rack for a few laps, with a picture at the start-finish line. How cool is that? Registration for the event will be open soon, so visit their dedicated website for the show at http://www.camarosuperfest.com/Home.html.
