The Mustang GTâ€™s 4.6L SOHC V8 is no competition for Chevroletâ€™s 5.7L LS1 V8. The LS1 V8 first appeared in the fifth generation Chevrolet Corvette, Americaâ€™s best sports car, in 1997. The only modifications from Corvette specifications for the Camaro Z28 were made for packaging reasons. The Camaro Z28 is rated at 310 horsepower @ 5200 rpm and 340 lb.-ft. torque @ 4000 rpm. Thatâ€™s a 50 horsepower advantage and 38 lb.-ft. torque advantage over the Mustang GT.
In 1918 the same year that Chevrolet became part of General motors they released the first truck. The truck was based on the Model 490 car frame. Six years later Chevrolet opened another plant in Copenhagen, Denmark; it was the first plant outside the U.S. and helps put Chevy on top of Ford selling over one million car and tucks. Back in the United States during the spring of 1929 the Chevrolet Six was released called “a six for the price of a four.” It was called that because the other companies offered a four-cylinder engine for the same price. In 1934 Chevy started to innovate even more introducing independent suspension on the 1935 model master series.
Using the Chrysler E platform and sharing major components with the Plymouth Barracuda. The second generation from 1978 to 1983 was a badge engineered Mitsubishi Gallant Lambda.

“Shall endow chariots with incredible speed, without the aid of any animal,” David Goewey was talking about SUV’s in a sense, but this relates to the Ford Mustang too. In the early 60’s muscle cars were huge with younger people (Goewey 147). Chevy and Dodge already had their muscle cars and theirs were big with this generation even the Pontiac Firebird was accepted to the muscle cars standards. But Ford was the only one without any type of muscle cars, this was when John Najjar pitched his idea of a car different than any other made, it was wild, free, fast, wicked. Ford’s Mustang first model was in 1964; it was revolutionary to the car world.
But that’s not all; the RS meaning for the Chevy Camaro is (Rally Sport) giving this car a whole new look. RS gives the body of a Camaro a whole new look adding side skirts, tire flaps, Oracle head lights, and the neon blue lighting kit on the inside. That’s not all, SS comes with the meaning (Super Sport) this means bigger motor, Brembo brakes, and a suspension that can handle the 426hp that the car puts out. The production of this car started in Oshawa Canada. The reason why Chevy had the Camaro built in Oshawa Canada was to help supply jobs for the people of Oshawa.

Chevy took advantage of the 2012 end of the world thing during the Super Bowl and showed how two things will survive the end of days, Twinkies and Chevy trucks. There was another ad from the 1980’s where Ford tried to show its strength by having a Chevy truck in the bucket, while pulling a Dodge and GMC behind it while going uphill, almost instantly Chevy came back with a similar ad where it had three trucks in the bucket, going uphill, and then having another Chevy pull the hill away with the trucks still on it. In the start of the Chevy ad it states that Ford did the similar thing but they could do it better. Both trucks have been known as America’s powerhouse trucks being able to hold up to tons of stress and to tow more each year. Chevy has done amazing
This car finally emerged from a secret room that he had built in his factory, it was to be called the Model T. For eight hundred and twenty five dollars a customer could purchase a Model T. The Model T was a light 1,200 lbs, had a relatively powerful 20 horsepower engine, and was fairly easy to drive with a two speed foot controlled transmission (Kimes, Beverly). This was a simple sturdy and versatile car that Ford hoped would get the public excited. This car went on sale for the customers on October 1, 1908 (Kimes, Beverly). In the first year this car was for sale it set a new record for most cars sold in a year, over ten thousand (Kimes, Beverly). The Model T became a real hit with customers and by the 1924 the ten millionth Model T left the
