    What does the word CAMARO mean ? Was it a made up word by the GM executives or does it have some kind of Spanish or Latin meaning ? I can't seem to find it in any on-line dictionaries or anything. Please don't answer with VROOM VROOM:rolleyes: THANKS - ChiTownCamaro being serious.:eek:

    More to the point why can't people pronouce it correctly? The times I hear it called a Camero and spelt like that as well.

    In Portuguese it is shrimp.
    (Learned this from a "History of Camaro" book and just confirmed it with Babblefish.) :))

    Vehicle names have gotten weird... I saw a Hyundai "Azera" this morning.
    I guess it's supposed to be a luxury car, but.... WTF kind of name is that? :crazy:

    "aZERa".... Sounds like a Korean sneeze. :screwup:


    I guess they've been around for a couple of years now, I never noticed the name before.

    As far as the Camaro goes....
    The origin or definition of the name doesn't matter much any more as it was given a solid definition in 1967. :cool:
