More About This episode

It's a uniquely American sports car that's been resurrected by a company that, like the Motor City itself, never gave up. Crushed by a global financial meltdown of epic proportions, GM fought through bankruptcy and can now build the machine it has always wanted to. Take a ride in the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro, a high-performance roadster that's fast, lightweight, and affordable. Then meet some of the members of the Chevy family who are as resilient as the supercar they build.
