Found this in the paper today. 10,000 camaros ordered

I was reading the paper today in the car section to see if there was any new new's about the camaro. And sure enough there was...It was a article tell people that there has been over 10,000 order's placed for the camaro, and one of the guy's with GM(don't know his name off the top of my head) said that the majority of the camaro's that have been pre-ordered are V6's. I just thought I would post that information.

Nope, the attachment is there. It's kind of small because i cut it from the paper and scanned it. But it's in the last paragraph.

Doesn't say most of the orders were for V6 models...just a considerable amount.

And Mark LaNeve loves that word...considerable...that's the second article in two days that he's used it.

"considerable" != "majority" (!= is programming parlance for not equals)

Ok, sorry a CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT were V6's. That mean's either REALLY close to the # of V8's or more than V8's

For the Camaro to be a success, we better HOPE a lot of V6's sell! The Stang is successful from girls and rental companies driving V6's, not the hardcores driving the V8.

Not really. If one would expect pretty much all of the cars to be v8s since the only people ordering now are enthusiasts, even 10% could be considered "considerable"

con⋅sid⋅er⋅a⋅ble   /kənˈsɪdərəbəl/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [kuhn-sid-er-uh-buhl] Show IPA Pronunciation

–adjective 1. rather large or great in size, distance, extent, etc.: It cost a considerable amount. We took a considerable length of time to decide.
2. worthy of respect, attention, etc.; important; distinguished: a considerable person.
–noun 3. Informal. much; not a little: He has done considerable for the community.
–adverb 4. Nonstandard: Older Use. considerably; noticeably; much: I'm feeling considerable better now.

I guess it all depends on his definition of considerable. If half of the last 4,000 orders were v6, that would still mean that 30% of the total 10,000 were V6. That to me would be a CONSIDERABLE amount of V8s.

it is "considerable" even if it is only 20-30% of the total..considering they haven't advertised it yet

What makes a person a hardcore if you drive a V-8 over a V-6?
I chose a V-6 because that's what I wanted.

Exactly, he's saying what "sounds good" and stresses to readers the fuel efficiency of the car.....PR BS! Although I have read here that the V6 orders are starting to catch up....a good thing.

IN NEWSDAY (NY) on 01-04-09 paper in the automotive section there was a small article in summary it stated the Camaro convertable has been delayed for 6mo as well as for the challenger. I guess this is old news but it was in todays paper.

Hardcore, you would want to go for as much of everything as you can. Having the *sorry* lower model engine, isn't quite hardcore...

Wiki:
Adjective

hardcore (comparative more hardcore, superlative most hardcore)


1. Having an extreme dedication to a certain activity; diehard.

He's a hardcore gamer.

2. (slang) Particularly intense; thrillingly dangerous or erratic; desirably violent in appearance; pleasing or "cool" due to intensity or danger.

That show was ****in hardcore, dude.

3. Resistant to change.

Everybody (fanatics) knows the early orders are majority are v-8s but GM has to let people know it has a fuel efficient V-6. If GM said the majority is V-8, a lot of potential customers would rule it out saying they don't want a V-8 musclecar. Let's face it, I am certain there will be a fair amount of salespeople that don't know the Camaro will have a V-6. Sad but true.

It makes sense to promote the V6 when GM is in trouble. Congress can't be seeing GM promote the V8 with money that is intended to make it competitive with 4-banger imports.

Besides, that V6 is pretty amazing.
