DEARBORN — The public is invited to celebrate 50 years of evolution and innovation that defines iconic Chevrolet Camaro’s legacy during Motor Muster at Greenfield Village June 18 to 19.

Motor Muster is a car enthusiast’s dream weekend with the streets and lawns of Greenfield Village filled with more than 850 muscle cars, pony cars, classics, military vehicles, fire trucks, motorcycles and more dating from the 1930s to 1970s.

In celebration of this American classic, a special display of Camaros from the General Motors Heritage Collection will be on the Village Green across from Town Hall. Additionally, enthusiasts and amateurs alike can learn more during special pass-in-review presentations each day at 1 p.m. on Main Street with Matt Anderson, curator of transportation at The Henry Ford, and Andrew Beckman, archivist and automobile historian at the Studebaker Museum in South Bend, Ind.

Throughout the weekend, guests can see many of the vehicles take to the streets during the pass-in-review parades, vote who should take home the Popular Choice Award, and learn why this is considered one of the most innovative eras in automotive history from Michigan’s top automotive experts including, Marty Bufalini, Bill Porter, Robert Riegle, Bob Strucel, Jim Wagner and Roger Wojtkowicz.
