    If I recall correctly, it was Robin Williams back in the '80s who as part of his stand up routine said, "Camaro -- that's an Indian word for 'Fill this fucker up again!'"

    correct it was in the press conference to kill the panther. it was on chevrolet.com if i remember right in the legend of the camaro section. the conference was because people though that the car to compete with the mustang was gonna be called a panther and instead they name it the camaro which as you said was comrade in french
