The PHR team was cruising the L.A. Auto Show on Monday and happened to be there just in time to catch the West Coast unveiling of the new Camaro concept car from GM. Aggressive modern design is mixed with a few styling cues from the past, so there is no doubt of this ride's heritage. This modern bruiser is packed with the performance that has made the Camaro nameplate synonymous with "musclecar." Don't run down to the GM dealership with your checkbook just yet, this is just a concept and the real deal is still a couple years out. With the new Mustang selling like hotcakes and the recent unveiling of the new two-door Dodge Challenger, the Camaro makes it just like old times again, except faster.
