Chevy's 100th anniversary celebrations continue, with the 1969 Camaro being named "the best Chevy of all time".
As part of their 100th anniversary celebrations, Chevrolet asked their fans to weigh in and vote for which vehicle from the company's impressive history they would consider to be the best. After tallying the nearly 125,000 votes, it was the 1969 Camaro which come out on top, narrowly edging out the 1970 Chevelle SS. We think the Camaro is well deserving of the title, but of course, we'd be saying the exact same thing about the Chevelle if it had won.
Picking just one car from the brand which brought us the Bel Air, the split window Stingray and the 1971 Vega (wait... not that one) is pretty close to impossible, but Tom Peters, Chevrolet's Design Director, thinks the voters made the right call. He owned a '69 for nearly 20 years and pointed out in a statement from Chevy that even though it has been decades since 1969, this was the Camaro which served as the inspiration for the design of the fifth-generation model.
