Default Happy Birthday Mustang, from your friend Camaro

Happy Birthday Mustang, from your friend Camaro-camaromustangbirthday1.jpg

We all know Camaro and Mustang rivalry as perfectly summarized by GM VP as the two cars that have been striving to beat each other on the track, on the drag strip and on the streets.

Amidst one of the most intense, model-to-model rivalries in the industry, Chevy has released this heartfelt congratulations to the Mustang on its 50th Anniversary, with a statement, "we look forward to another 50 years of rivalry."

Prelude: The Ford Mustang was introduced 50 years ago on an April 17th, creating an entirely new class of transportation, the pony car. Chevrolet introduced the Camaro three years later, creating one of the most enduring rivalries in the automotive industry.

Talk about healthy rivalry & being a great sport! That is sheer class shown by the Camaro team (bet they gained a lot of PR points too).

P.S. 50 years down the line, it'll be more like 8 batteries than 8 cylinders under the hood

This is just lovely in my opinion. Not many companies can make ads which sum up the heritage of their product and a competitor's product and showcase it in a good way. Talk about being a great sport like gto posted earlier.

Ford put the Mustang atop Empire State building in 1964 during its launch.
50 years later,the 2015 Mustang too goes atop the Empire State building
