Oshawa, Ontario – Over 2,000 Camaro enthusiasts from across Canada and the United States were in Oshawa, Ontario over the weekend for the Chevrolet Homecoming Weekend.

Held in conjunction with the 23rd annual Camaro Nationals hosted by the Ontario Camaro Club, the event drew more than 800 cars from as far away as Florida and Texas to the parking lot of the GM plant that builds the Camaro.

General Motors hosted plant tours for the show participants on Friday morning and then opened it to the public in the afternoon. More than 6,000 people toured the plant during the day.

“Camaro owners are some of our most passionate and loyal customers and we’re thrilled to show our appreciation to them with this event,” said Kevin Williams, president and managing director of GM of Canada. “As well, we owe a debt of gratitude to Canadians for their support, especially over the past few years, and today’s plant open house is a small way we can say ‘thank you’ for the chance we’ve been given to show what this company can really do.”

Over 587 Camaros participated in a “car mosaic” in the parking lot, which the company has submitted for a Guinness World Record.

The event also marked the Canadian debuts of the 2012 supercharged Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and 45th Anniversary Special Edition models.
