Hoards of Chevrolet Camaros gathered at Riverside Park in Ypsilanti, Mich. over the holiday weekend for Camaro SuperFest. The 23rd gathering of Chevrolet pony cars drew over 400 classic and modern Camaros to the park, reports the Detroit News.
The event, hosted by the Eastern Michigan Camaro Club, is as much a gathering of enthusiasts as it is a charitable campaign. Club member and 2012 Camaro SS owner Roxanne England told the Detroit News that the 2013 event raised $6,000 toward fighting lupus. This year’s charitable donations are going to the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation of Michigan.
The schedule for this year’s Camaro SuperFest included such activities as parade laps around Michigan International Speedway, and a visit to the Lingenfelter Motorsports Collection. A wide variety of Camaros were present, from England’s aforementioned 2012 model to Scot Poore’s 1984 Camaro Z28.
Poore, who told the Detroit News he built the car with his late-father, aptly summed up what life as a Camaro enthusiast is like: “People offer me money for [my Camaro] but it’s not for sale. I will probably be buried in this car.”
Unfortunately, Chevrolet did not use the event as a platform to launch a new Camaro variant, as it did in 2011. Showgoers of that event were some of the first individuals to lay eyes on a Camaro ZL1 with an automatic transmission.
