The Chevy Camaro has been crowned the “hottest car” of the 2010 SEMA Show – an award that – according to GM – “recognizes the most accessory-friendly new models, based on the number of vehicles exhibited at the show.”
Basically, the award goes to the car that is presented most often, or – as Chris Kersting, SEMA president and CEO put it, “A booth space is a ballot, and the models these exhibitors have selected represent their vote.” But does this award have any real merit besides making an attractive headline?
Surprisingly, it does. Being the most popular tuner vehicle at SEMA means that the aftermarket community is downright crazy about the fifth-generation Camaro, having released thousands of products that improve performance, convenience, appearance, and comfort of the bow tie-branded pony car. At the end of the day, aftermarket manufacturers had their choice of any vehicle on the market, but ended up picking the Camaro. Good choice, ladies and gentlemen, good choice.
