GM TO DROP CAMARO, FIREBIRD

Cruising the boulevard may never be the same. Two of America's favorite sports cars are nearing the end of the blacktop.

General Motors Corp. announced Tuesday the 2002 model year will be the last for the Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird.

The Ste. Therese, Quebec, assembly plant where they are produced will close next September.

GM blamed the demise of the Camaro and Firebird on a 53 percent decline in the sports car market since 1990.
