Since getting out of the station wagon and into something worth driving 10 years ago, I have been very lucky. No tickets, and there have been times that I would have earned more than a ticket. I...

The stock Camaro filter set-up is pretty good, so aftermarket won't gain much. The car won't be any faster, but the sound will make you think it is.

So is GM taking a loss on the ZR1, or is the C7 so much better than the C6 that it doesn't need a lot of improvements to handle the power? Or did GM just stick it to all of the C6 ZR1 guys?

At this rate, 350hp will be an econobox, 500hp will be mom's kid hauler, 750hp will be the base ponycar engine, and 1200hp will be the minimum for the entry ticket to the sports car lounge.

I don't believe it will be worth more than 30k+30 years interest. Add in storage insurance, maintenance, possible damage from mice or insects, etc. and the return is worse. Cars just aren't a good...

The Hellcat raises the bar, I think Ford will step up, but I don't know if GM will. GM may go with a more balanced package. Think 650hp ZL-1 with better track manners.
