According to General Motors, 6 of the top 10 Dealerships in 5th Gen Camaro Sales are located in the Lone Star State, so it’s only fitting to throw a Texas-Sized Camaro bash to celebrate America’s favorite modern muscle car. This past weekend the streets of Austin, Texas were filled with F-bodies as over 50 Fifth Generation Camaros rolled into town for the first ever Texas-Wide Camaro5 Meet. Camaro owners from all over the great state of Texas converged onto the capital city to take part in the largest documented gathering of individually owned 5th Gen Camaros to date. Camaro clubs from Dallas/Fort Worth, San Antonio, Houston, and of course Austin, were all well represented, as well as many small towns all along the way.
The event was kicked off with a Meet-and-Greet at The Oasis on Lake Travis, where organizers say that approximately 51 Camaros were parked together, gleaming under the hot Texas sun. Needless to say, the 5th Gens attracted more than a little attention. After lunch, the participants made a short scenic cruise through the Texas Hill-Country back in to downtown Austin for a photo shoot.
So, the 1st Annual Texas-Wide Camaro5 Meet is in the books for 2011, and by all accounts it was a great success. If you’re a Texan and missed out on the meet, don’t worry because the Camaro5 crew plans to make this a yearly event. With the ranks of Camaro owners and the popularity of the 5th Gen growing every day, positive enthusiast events like this should only continue to grow as well.
Camaro5 member Jose Lugo, from Temple, Texas, left us with these thoughts; “The Texas-Wide Camaro event was more than just a meet. It gave us the chance to match faces with names, and gave us the opportunity to interact with other fellow Camaro owners who love and enjoy their cars as much as I do.”
