Camaro called a top collectible

STAFF AND NEWS SERVICE REPORTS

Score another kudo for the Chevrolet Camaro, which was named Collectible Car of the Year by the Friends of the National Automotive History Collection at the Detroit Public Library this week.

The Camaro beat 12 other vehicles that were introduced in 2010.

"This selection is unique among all the 'Vehicle of the Year' awards, because it is selected by car buffs who know what future collectors will value," said Charles Hyde, NAHC board of trustees chairman. "We asked our members to predict which of this year's new vehicles will turn heads in the Woodward Cruise of 2035."

Camaro designer Tom Peters will receive the award at the NAHC's holiday reception Thursday at the Skillman branch of the Detroit Public Library, 121 Gratiot Ave. in downtown Detroit. The Skillman branch is home to the NAHC, the world's largest public archive of automotive materials.

Previous winners of the award include the 2009 Ford Flex, '08 Dodge Challenger, '07 Dodge Viper SRT10, '06 Pontiac Solstice and '05 Ford Mustang. Vehicles built in North America are eligible for the award.

NAHC Picks Chevrolet Camaro as 2010's "Collectible Car of the Future"

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 09, 2010

From all the new cars and trucks launched in America this year, the vehicle to turn most heads in 2035 will most likely be the Chevrolet Camaro. Or at least that is the prediction of the Friends of the National Automotive History Collection (NAHC), which decided that GM's muscle car is the 2010's "Collectible Car of the Future".

Charles K. Hyde, chairman of the NAHC Board of Trustees, said: "This selection is unique among all the 'Vehicle of the Year' awards, because it is selected by 'car buffs' who know what future collectors will value. We asked our members to predict which of this year's new vehicles will turn heads in the Woodward Cruise of 2035."

The members of the organization selected the Camaro from a total of 13 all-new vehicles launched in 2010.

Tom Peters, Camaro chief designer commented: "Our mission with the 21st century Chevy Camaro was to draw on the passion and heritage, expressing it in a new and modern car with design, technology and quality to carry the legacy forward. It's simple; the new Camaro puts smiles on the faces of car enthusiasts of all ages."

Last year's vote went to the Ford Flex making it the first crossover to win since the creation of the awards in 1995. Over the years, NAHC has picked a variety of vehicles including the Chrysler Sebring Convertible as 1996's "Collectible Car of the Future". No, seriously; from all the vehicles launched that year, NAHC's members found that Chrysler's rent-a-cabriolet would rate the highest among future collectors in 2020. What can you say... Below is the full list of NHAC's previous winners.

NAHC Previous winners are:

2008 - Dodge Challenger

2007 - Dodge Viper SRT10

2006 - Pontiac Solstice

2005 - Ford Mustang

2004 - Chrysler 300

2003 - Dodge Viper

2002 - Ford Thunderbird

1996 - Chrysler Sebring Convertible

1995 - Buick Riviera and Oldsmobile Aurora

*None selected from 1997 to 2001
