Detroit, Michigan – The Chevrolet Camaro will be the 2010 vehicle most desired by future car collectors, as predicted by the Friends of the National Automotive History Collection (NAHC) in Detroit. Members of the organization, which supports the automotive collection at the Detroit Public Library, vote each year on the “Collectible Vehicle of the Future” from the year’s new American-built cars and trucks.

The Camaro was selected from 13 all-new vehicles launched in 2010. The award will be presented to Chevrolet executives at the Friends of the NAHC’s annual holiday reception.

“This selection is unique among all the ‘vehicle of the year’ awards, because it is selected by car buffs who know what future collectors will value,” said Charles Hyde, chairman of the NAHC Board of Trustees. “We asked our members to predict which of this year’s new vehicles will turn heads in the Woodward Cruise of 2035.”

The previous winners are:

2009 – Ford Flex
2008 – Dodge Challenger
2007 – Dodge Viper SRT10
2006 – Pontiac Solstice
2005 – Ford Mustang
2004 – Chrysler 300
2003 – Dodge Viper
2002 – Ford Thunderbird
1996 – Chrysler Sebring Convertible
1995 – Buick Riviera and Oldsmobile Aurora
(None selected from 1997 to 2001)
