I have to disagree, I think it is time to change (change is good). The days of the Fbody are gone, lets move on.

It will always be an FBod to me.

There was one post from the second IDL, I believe from Mindz, that said while technically not an F body, the fourth character in the VIN of every car was going to be an F, I believe he assigned a 90% probability to it being done like that...I like the tribute....

I'm just saying that it not being the LS3 for the auto doesn't make it any less impressive.

It's good to have the Camaro back, even if I can't do the hot cam swap. I'm just proud to be a future Camaro owner.

Yeah, somehow "ZetaIIFather" doesn't fit for Scott.

Cheers to many more generations of Camaro to come!

Consider this: The 3.6 V6 in the '10 will probably destroy, both off the line and in the quarter, any 305 or 350 Z28 from the late 70's through the early 90's.

There was a time, not too long ago, when 0-60 in 7 seconds was considered "wicked fast" - and I think most of the Z28's in the 80s were around that.

The 3.6 is supposed to do it in 6.1
Amen!
