"The Camaro program (I like the sound of that...), is approved and will continue to be produced in Oshawa on the recently announced flex manufacturing line."

'Continue to be produced': I wonder what that means? Really...I haven't the foggiest.

'Flex Manufacturing Line' maybe I should do some research first but, what is this?

I am not sure of the exact details, but the "flex line" is a new configuration that will allow the Camaro to be produced along side another model. It enables the factory to switch between assemblies without having to retool the whole factory.

Do you think that a new GTO could be part of that platform? It would sort of take the place of the missing Firebird!? Just thinking out loud. I wonder?

I think with all of the hoopla surrounding the RWD program right now, they it is most likely on hold like the others... but who knows.

Well, we know the new Camaro ain't on hold and that is the main thing.

They did say that they haven't changed any of their plans...just waiting mostly...

I suppose the way that they said the Camaro program hs been approved and will continue... it does take a little weight off of me. They sound more confident than "It was too late to stop Camaro..."

Overall Good News and Good Find as far as I'm concerned...

Sorry, what's going on with the RWD program? I've been away for a bit.

It has been put on hold because of the forthcoming emissions regulations. All of the RWD cars minus the Camaro and the G8 are now up in the air.
