Billed as the new American muscle car, the Chevy Camaro Convertible is already winning over the public as a panel of 100 Detroit News readers dubbed the concept vehicle "Best of Show."
The Camaro headlined the 2007 Detroit News Readers' Choice Award winners which Detroit News Editor and Publisher David J. Butler announced today at the Detroit Economic Club's North American International Auto Show 2007 Luncheon.
Selected from more than 2,000 volunteers, the 100 readers toured the show Wednesday and choose winners in categories such as "Sexiest Vehicle," "Most Earth-friendly" and "Best Family Hauler."
"Manufacturers really respect these awards because they are the only awards given at the North American International Auto Show that comes from the car buyer," not from journalists and industry insiders, said Nolan Finley, News editorial page editor, who hosted the reader-judges.

Best of Show, Chevy Camaro Convertible
