Found this in the paper today. 10,000 camaros ordered
 
I was reading the paper today in the car section to see if there was any new new's about the camaro. And sure enough there was...It was a article tell people that there has been over 10,000 order's placed for the camaro, and one of the guy's with GM(don't know his name off the top of my head) said that the majority of the camaro's that have been pre-ordered are V6's. I just thought I would post that information.

You mean V8's

AT the end of October at the 6,000 sold mark, 84% were V8's. Thats one hell of a come back if that news is correct.

No not necessarily.
I had a similar article except they spelled it Camero.:(

Nope, the attachment is there. It's kind of small because i cut it from the paper and scanned it. But it's in the last paragraph.

Doesn't say most of the orders were for V6 models...just a considerable amount.

And Mark LaNeve loves that word...considerable...that's the second article in two days that he's used it.

"considerable" != "majority" (!= is programming parlance for not equals)

ddennis 01-04-2009 06:29 PM

Considerable equals Majority???????????

Th3Nigh7Stalk3r 01-04-2009 06:29 PM

Ok, sorry a CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT were V6's. That mean's either REALLY close to the # of V8's or more than V8's

MrGazinya 01-04-2009 06:30 PM

Maybe they want people to think that, like the government types;)

For the Camaro to be a success, we better HOPE a lot of V6's sell! The Stang is successful from girls and rental companies driving V6's, not the hardcores driving the V8.

UCF w00t 01-04-2009 06:31 PM

Not really. If one would expect pretty much all of the cars to be v8s since the only people ordering now are enthusiasts, even 10% could be considered "considerable"

Who gives a crap if most ordered are V6 or V8? What does it matter?

con⋅sid⋅er⋅a⋅ble   /kənˈsɪdərəbəl/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [kuhn-sid-er-uh-buhl] Show IPA Pronunciation

–adjective 1. rather large or great in size, distance, extent, etc.: It cost a considerable amount. We took a considerable length of time to decide.
2. worthy of respect, attention, etc.; important; distinguished: a considerable person.
–noun 3. Informal. much; not a little: He has done considerable for the community.
–adverb 4. Nonstandard: Older Use. considerably; noticeably; much: I'm feeling considerable better now.

I guess it all depends on his definition of considerable. If half of the last 4,000 orders were v6, that would still mean that 30% of the total 10,000 were V6. That to me would be a CONSIDERABLE amount of V8s.

Do you mean for us on this thread, the general public, GM or you?
