This Morning : The Chevrolet Camaro Turns 50

(WLNS) — General Motors is having a birthday party like no other this week.

The Chevrolet Camaro turned 50 years old, and the automaker is holding a three day celebration spread out between Lansing and Detroit.

Thursday morning Camaro enthusiasts got the chance to peek inside of the Lansing Grand River Assembly plant, and see exactly how the Michigan-Made muscle car is built from the ground up.

Plant tours are free and open to the public.

No pre-registration is required but you will be asked to fill out some paperwork once you arrive at the plant. Activities are happening in the parking lot on the corner of Malcom X St, and Martin Luther King Blvd in Lansing.

Thursday’s celebration ends at 2pm, and then the party moves to Detroit tomorrow morning. Organizers hope to fill the Joe Louis Arena parking lot with 500 Chevy Camaros.

If you’d like to be one them, you can find event information here.
