This V6 Camaro is going to be a huge success for Chevy in the general market. Having a powerful 300hp coupe for $10k less than what other companies would charge for the same power is huge.

The V6 is hands down the best in it's class when it comes to power/cost. Obviously undercutting the ever popular Mustang GT and V6. Same story for the SS, similarly HP & feautred cars go for $40k easily. See: G8 GXP, Challenger & Charger SRT 8.

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.

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......)


(.....but I DID take the "C.Greg" part out.....)

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.

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:
