With negotiations between the United States and Iran becoming surprisingly fruitful lately, Chevrolet has to be salivating at the automotive trend rising in Iran. The Iranians love them some Camaros. According to a story by Reuters, 1,500 cars have been imported in Iran's free trade zone, Aras. Half of those cars have been American, and the most popular is the Camaro.
"I have four Chevrolet Camaros at the moment," says an Iranian car dealer, "they're seriously popular." Another seller has even taken out advertisements in Aras that read, "The return of a legend after 34 years."
American cars were popular before the Iranian revolution in 1979 and now, with peace looking more likely than it has in decades, a resurgence is already underway.
