CamaroFest 2015:
We had a blast driving up with H-Town Camaro Club. Was nice meeting Al Oppenheiser, getting him to sign our cars, and see him being more than just a GM guy. We had a mishap with local mustang group trying to crash our party, but that was quickly taken care of.  Bowling Green was a great choice and hope it comes back there one day.

Bluff City Shootout:
Those that attended had a blast. Midnight Madness at MIR was crazy busy, but we were still able to get runs in and enjoy ourselves. They won again this year, but they better watch out. We have a few cars that are going under the wrench between then and next year’s event.

Walking Dead Party:
We’re having a Walking Dead watching party at Cooley and Bar’s house on Oct. 11th. It’s on a Sunday evening, it isn’t a costume party, but you are welcome to dress up if you like. The cats will be hiding in another room. If you are interested, please contact Cooley for more info.

Tail of the Dragon Run:
Tail of the Dragon Run. There is a group organizing a run on Oct. 17th. The info is on the FB page. If you are interested, contact Eric for details.

Lambert’s Trip:
Eric is organizing this. The date is November 14th. Please contact Eric or Cooley to verify if you can make it with how many cars and people.

Bluff City Camaro/ Mustangs Cruise:
We are working on something soon. Will update in a separate post when something is concrete.

Club Christmas Party:
We’re looking at maybe having a Christmas party at Bobby’s house this year. Will update in a separate post when something is concrete.

Christmas City Cruise:
We discussed having a cruise through Christmas City to see the lights and decorations. We haven’t set a date yet. Get with Eric, Adam, or Cooley with dates you can make it.

If you are on the fence about coming to an event, jump off that fence and come along! We are always needing more friends and family!! As you know, we aren’t a strict club, we’re a bunch of Chevy people who just like doing things together and being friends.

“2016 Camaro is all about the Aero”

DETROIT – After 350 hours of wind tunnel testing – often 24 hours a day – the new Camaro will slip more easily through the wind, and drivers of the Camaro SS will experience a marked improvement in reduced aerodynamic lift.

These changes illustrate the lengths the aerodynamics team went to for improved performance, stability, cooling and lower wind noise intrusion

“The importance of aerodynamics increases exponentially as we increase vehicle performance,” said Kirk Bennion, Exterior Design manager. “As engine output increases, we need more engine cooling. As acceleration and top speeds climb, we need to reduce lift for better high-speed stability. However, we cannot make any changes at the expense of increasing drag, which can hurt fuel economy.

“To balance these different aerodynamic targets, we tested literally hundreds of changes on the new Camaro, millimeters at a time.”

For example, the initial design called for the lower grille bars to be set at a 20-degree angle to the horizon. However, after meticulous testing, the team improved engine-cooling airflow by 1 percent by shifting the angle to 13 degrees – a change that achieved the airflow target while maintaining the original grille design.

And rather than a traditional front air dam to reduce aerodynamic lift, the team developed a flush belly pan that stretches from the front grille to the center of the vehicle. Paired with small “spats” forward of the front tires, the smooth underbody helps reduce total lift by 30 percent – while also reducing aerodynamic drag.

Chevrolet will introduce the all-new, 2016 Camaro on Saturday, May 16, during a special public event at Detroit’s Belle Isle Park.

Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is now one of the world’s largest car brands, doing business in more than 115 countries and selling around 4.8 million cars and trucks a year.

Milan, TN Trip on May 16th

Update from Cooley concerning Milan, TN cruise:

We’re still waiting for all the information about the Milan cruise, but this is what we know so far:

The cruise will be to Milan and the Mustang bunch want to have 50+ cars.
They say there will be Challengers going along with us…but only because Mark asked for them.
Once we get there they plan to have some kind of car show.

This cruise is to help the Veteran’s home out.

As info becomes available, we’ll let y’all know.

Next Week

Next Friday (May 15th) we are planning to go see the Mad Max movie and next Saturday (May 16th) we are planning a trip to Milan, TN for veterans. We will be cruising with Bluff City Mustangs. Please see Cooley, Adam F., or Eric for more information.

“Sculpted Exterior Reflects 2016 Camaro’s New Athleticism”

DETROIT – For the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, the design team set out to create a leaner, more athletic design that complemented the new driving experience.

“The Camaro went to the gym and came out with a lithe, more athletic physique for the sixth generation,” said Ed Welburn, vice president, GM Global Design. “It’s a more expressive evolution of the Camaro’s iconic character – and one that complements its leaner size and sharper reflexes.”

The exterior design vocabulary is defined by complex shapes, which appear to be form-fitted around the mechanical components. Every shape and surface detail is a skilled, artistic collaboration of hand and digital sculpting.

Camaro’s new design details draw the eye into the design. For example, the new aluminum hood features powerful, smoothly curved sculpted forms accented with sharp creases. As a result, the hood appears to be shrink-wrapped around the engine.

Similarly, the new Camaro retains the broad, dramatic rear fenders that became a defining feature of the award-winning Gen 5 Camaro. The design is updated with greater detailing, including a subtle crease running parallel to the fender edge. The effect makes the new Camaro look even lower and wider despite having a slightly smaller footprint than its predecessor.

Chevrolet will introduce the all-new, 2016 Camaro on Saturday, May 16, during a special public event at Detroit’s Belle Isle Park.
