Yup -- I did -- but I need to *once again* calm some people down - and if that means that I have to make multiple posts -- in different parts of this site -- so be it --

(....I'm afraid some people are going to die of a stroke or worse......)

I have personally put in thousands of hours of my own time to keep the community together -- and to try and keep the faith within the community. I don't expect anyone to thank me -- or to 'cowtow' to me -- I chose to do it because, like you, I LOVE THE CAMARO -- and it was -- and is -- the right thing to do.......but when I hear someone say "GM doesn't care about us" I get a *bit upset*......
Thanks fbodfather.....we do appreciate you so much. We can't wait to get our hands on a Camaro...i'm so excited I can barely sleep at night!

thats a personal rendering. that border is way to low to be DE jr version, plus it has some extra graphics toward the rear of the car.

400hp & Brembos for $30k is unheard of. 1 month ago I wasn't even looking for a Chevy until I stumbled upon the price and specs. Now I'm sold.







Maybe 4-Cylinder Turbo.
THANK YOU !!!


This is a PERFECT THREAD to illustrate one of the points I've been trying to make..............here's someone who wasn't even CONSIDERING a Camaro -- and lookie what happened!!!!

Not DEJ car!

My good friend MR DRAGON-EYE sent me a note a longggggggg time ago and said that he would love to photo-shop a new Camaro in whatever paint scheme I'd like........

I have ALWAYS loved the 1993 Camaro Z28 Indy Pace Car -- so I asked him if he could put that paint treatment (and stripes and wheel color) on a 5th gen..........and THAT'S what my Avatar is!


DRAGON-EYE Rocks!!!!:happyan im:

So hopefully I'm not reading between the lines too much but does what you're saying mean that we can expect that more than 50% of the first allotment produced will be v8s to closer match the ratio that has been ordered by consumers?

Yes -- in fact it COULD be argued that V8 could be more plentiful simply because a lot of V6s will go to the "one per dealer" program........all of those cars are V6s.......

LOL. Don't bother reading it. I'll give you the cliff's notes here...

Lots of people: OMFG... THE SKY IS FALLING!!!!!!!!!! I'm NOT GETTING MY CAMARO!!! I'M CANCELING MY ORDER TOMORROW!!!!

A few people (namely scotty): Calm down. Have faith. You'll get your cars. GM won't screw this up *that bad*.

Repeat a few hundred times and there ya go.
