Before any official announcement. reports began circulating

preparing a competitor to the Ford Mustang. code-named Panther. On
June 21. 1966. around 200 automotive journalists received a
telegram from General Motors stating. ". Please save noon of June
28 for important SEPAW meeting. Hope you can be on hand to help
scratch a cat. Details will follow. (signed) John L. Cutter -
Chevrolet Public Relations - SEPAW Secretary. " The following day. br/>the same journalists received another General Motors telegram
stating. "Society for the Eradication of Panthers from the
Automotive World will hold first and last meeting on June
28. (signed) John L. Cutter - Chevrolet Public Relations SEPAW
Secretary. " These telegrams puzzled the automotive
journalists.

On June 28. 1966. General Motors held a live press conference in
Detroit's Statler-Hilton Hotel. It would be the first time in
history that 14 cities were hooked up in real time for a press
conference via telephone lines. Chevrolet General Manager Pete
Estes started the news conference stating that all attendees of the
conference were charter members of the Society for the Elimination
of Panthers from the Automotive World and that this would be the
first and last meeting of SEPAW. Estes then announced a new car
line. project designation XP-836 with a name that Chevrolet chose
in keeping with other car names beginning with the letter C. The
new Camaro name was then unveiled. Automotive press asked Chevrolet
product managers. "What is a Camaro?" to which the reply came; "a
small. vicious animal that eats Mustangs. "

numbers example is resplendent in newly painted Chevrolet Matador
Red. Its owner who. it must be said. has high standards. describes
it as a fantastic example. This RS/SS has the famed Chevrolet big
block 396c. i. . 328bhp V8 engine which is attached to a Turbo
Hydramatic automatic gearbox and offers a Positraction rear axle.

system. power steering and brakes and a period style radio hiding a
modern CD player. Offered with the original bill of sale detailing
options selected when new. this example had just one owner in the
US followed by just the one owner here in the U. K. and is also
