Camaro ZL-1 brings a smile to GM employees' faces

While dropping off my 2013 Camaro ZL-1 test vehicle early this morning, I had a brief experience that brightened my day so much that I just had to share it.

As I rolled slowly through the parking lot next to the Oshawa plant, where the Chevy Camaro is built, I noticed several GM employees pointing and smiling at the bright red beast.

It is hard not to smile while looking at the ZL-1, with its fenders filled with enormous wheels and tires and the bulging hood, but these are plant workers. Guys who work on a production line, surrounded by Camaros in various stages of assembly all day long. The parking lot is full of Camaros that have been purchased by plant workers. You would think that this crowd might be a bit jaded by their constant exposure to Canada’s muscle car, but instead, seeing one in motion still brings a smile to their faces.

It is a small thing, but it feels great to know that the guys who build these cars are motivated by passion for the machine they create!

You can see a teaser of my upcoming video review of the ZL-1 in today’s Insider Report.
