Announcing the "American Pride" Camaro....

….The “American Pride Camaro” represents America ….and our struggle for freedom throughout our country's history. America represents freedom and hope for people worldwide.

Starting at the Right Rear Quarter panel, we see George Washington and his army crossing the Delaware; a likeness of the U.S. Constitution. ("..We The People.....") -- and each conflict is depicted in amazing ways - ending at the left rear quarter panel where we see a soldier and his Hummer in Afghanistan. On the trunk: Arlington National Cemetery where a Soldier is 'crossing over' -- and being met by those who have crossed before him. This Camaro is not only a treasured work of art, it's a history lesson............

Our Freedom is the envy of the world….

but it did not come easy --

it did not come cheaply--

......and we did not attain it without so many making many, many sacrifices…..

Throughout history, other countries have called on America, through its armed services - to come to their rescue.

Many countries have remained free or have received freedom from America’s "peace through military strength" policy….

....and that’s what this Camaro honors.

We thank world renowned Artist Mickey Harris for his incredible artistry and imagination --

and our friends at Mountain Muscle Cars for their time and talents in bringing this Camaro to reality.

Here is a TENTATIVE list of Autoshows where "American Pride" will appear.........there will be many more appearances in the summer months -- not to mention next show season. We plan to keep this work of art for the forseeable future -- so that it can journey around our great country -- and that "We The People" can admire Mickey's artistry.
