I hear you guys, it frustrates me too. It sounds like those guys are trying to create their our reality. I honestly don't mind when people dump on the camaro (or anything I like really even myself) all I ask is it be factual. Please don't make ridiculous statements like "yeah and since when did the camaro design ever incorporate round tires, I mean c'mon". The car coming out 4 years ago thing I understand. Who didn't want the car to come out 4 years ago, but it didn't, and it is here now. And, it is a great car by todays standard. But like Beau Tie said, it was $2.19 for him yesterday!! Why are we still talking about $4 gas?

These type of people will always exist. I mean, some people hate the fact that some people are enthusiasts, and not everybody likes the same type of car. I think this car appeals to a broad market and the Camaro was killed by a lack of a full update in '98 due to a focus on trucks and suv's. At the time it could be argued to be a good business decision and GM certainly has some of the best trucks out there now. Look at the japanese and how much they spent to try and catch up to this (up until very recently) extremely profitable segment.

But I think I already wasted too much energy responding to someone's opinion that probably would'nt have been happy unless GM came out with a solar powered hybrid camaro that plants trees on the side of the road while it drives.

Once again we have an 'armchair quarterback' that hasn't a clue as to what he's talking about.

He evidently thinks that those in a place of power are fools and that he has the answers -- if ONLY we'd listen to his wisdom. (....'wisdom' meaning misguided yearnings.....)

There are so many things wrong with what he proclaims that I don't have the time to respond other than to say " go learn something before you speak..."

So what I got from that was that the Camaro is gonna have way more power than a stang, has retro looks, and we all know with IRS its gonna handle much better than than one. Wow, I made the right choice by ordering. I love these threads! keep 'em coming.

My current Stang has been a great performer for over ten years. I am glad to pass the mantle over to a Chevy Camaro that will be superior in every way to my car (almost double the horsepower of the 1998 GT) and have IRS to boot... I plan on keeping it for as long as I am alive. If the engine dies out of warranty, I'll replace it with something better at the time.. By then I'll be 40 so perhaps a new generation Camaro will be in order...

These opinions aren't even worth the time to answer or even think about. You know what? I'd rather buy a Prius than read or listen to more of that rubish.

I might be mistaken, but didnt Motortrend DROP the Mustang from their extended test?

If I am right, the mustang was too slow and old, the designers started looking forward rather then backwards... *shrug* People hate waht they can't stand.

20mpg from the "big" V8...really? I think somebody's just pissed they have to deal with a teeny little 4.6L...

I've got a feeling those were selected-by-the-editors (go figure) pushbacks against the thrilling article MotorTrend wrote up earlier. Obviously they have to balance the amazing with the stupidity of a few readers.

Filled up at $1.95 this morning. I'm not too worried about the $4.00 rate right now.
