Chevrolet Camaro is an American Muscle car(some call it a Pony Car) that goes head to head with other legendary Muscle car the Ford Mustang!

We know that this Chevrolet Camaro 50th Anniversary is coming this year ever since Maisto showed it off in its 2017 catalog. And we been seeing some pics surfacing from since January this year and then the release happened recently. The model is not that new if you ask me! Because its the same old body, mostly the same old parts but there are few things that makes this 50th Anniversary Camaro special. Starting with the paint job, which is very cool with those orange decal details. The wheels are also new that is really new and few other notable features like the Fifty monogram all over it.
