The North American International Auto Show has re-vived rivarly between two iconic muscle cars: the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro.
Just last month, General Motors announced the Camaro will be making the move back to the U.S., set to be built in Lansing.
"Right now, it's being built in Canada, but when the baton gets passed to us, we're ready and we want to make sure we continue their fine tradition and continue to build the American icon that it is," said Antonio Francavilla, GM's Lansing plant manager.
While there hasn't been much official word about what's to come, there's some talk about it at the auto show. The newest Camaro just came out about two years ago, so auto experts say a re-freshed design likely won't come for another few years.
"Well, guess what, next year the new Mustang comes out and Chevrolet is really anxious to see what Mustang does do. They kind of keep it retro or do they really take the design into the 21st century and that's going to trigger what Chevrolet does when it does the Camaro," said John McElroy, Host-Autoline Daily. "Each design team, each engineering team at Chevy nd Ford, they never want to be trumped so you can be sure that as soon as Ford unveils its design of the Mustang, you can be assured Chevrolet is going to be all over that."
