Chevy’s Cameo adds to GM’s sales

General Motors Corp. says U.S. sales of the Chevrolet Camaro will catch up with sales of the Ford Mustang by the end of the month.

Camaro sales will be right with Mustang, company spokesman Terry Rhadigan said. In May, GM sold 5,463 Camaros, partly in response to the Camaro's appearance in the feature movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, USA Today reported Monday.

I just saw the 2010 Camaro when I saw the 'Transformers' movie and it is a hot car, Mariscia Thompson of Newberry, S.C., told the newspaper.

In May, Ford sold 8,812 Mustangs.

The hot-selling Camaro is a welcome surprise for GM as it pushes through federal bankruptcy court.

Our current production schedule can't meet the demand, (however) that supply-demand tension is good, Rhadigan said.
