I think the old Camaro could on most "normal" Nationals courses. The head-to-head last year was on the practice course which wasn't the most favorable for the 5th gen compared to the M3. Also it...

If I bought a 1LE I would autocross it, a lot. But, that's every car I buy.

LT1 4th gens had a long curved path from the airbox. It was horribly compromised, though, unlike the 6th gen car. The coolest place to pull air from is probably the fender or underneath which is why...

The SEMA car that had the split polished forged wheels had 285s front and 305s rear. And I agree they are not available on the build site for the SS. 1LE easter egg?

Saw the Hyper Blue LT at COTA last weekend. The color is much prettier in person than it is in pictures. The ceramic interior looked fantastic as well.

I'm over 40 and I don't remember when teenagers bought new Camaros. At least not typical teenagers. I bought a used one when I graduated from college (still have it).

Recaros were available on the 5th gen, at least the 1LE and I think the ZL1. Are you lamenting that they weren't available on the standard car?

I really would like a machine finish 5-spoke. I hope if/when the 1LE comes out it has an option for other than matte black. So done with that look.
