In that case, don't move to Quebec. They get excluded from these contests. I have no idea why

The mathematical question is pretty standard when it comes to Canadian contests.

That mathmatical question must be some type of joke...unless it was for some game show...like 3-2=?? I would hate to be the poor soul that froze up just because of being nervous and screws up the answer....hehehehe.

Great news on this day...great news. Scott says no to a 40K Camaro. We were right.

No...you don't need to buy the DVD to enter...in fact, there's nothing in the DVD set. Just go to the Chevy site.

Wow -- people freaked over the $40K figure -- that's a rule for Sweepstakes in that in some states, you have to state a value.

The new Camaro will be very affordable.

Also think about this:

Bumblebee isn't a 6 cylinder -- so we know the winner will be getting a WELL equipped car -- and the color -- they will have to be specially painted.

Anyone price out a 'custom' paint job lately with 'trick' paint? (Bumblebee doesn't have a 'regular' paint job!)

so......calm down -- spread the word. The new Camaro WILL be very very affordable.

Today was a busy day for forums!
There was so much new info to gobble up (thanks btw) that they read it superfast, saw 40k...base camaro. and freaked out!

To be honest...and no offense to anybody here...I found it rather funny!

40k is attached to the "Bumble Bee" name. The normal Camaro when it comes out I think a base model V6 will be 21-22k. No stress here.

Anytime Scott quiets an unsettleing rumor I feel happy .
Actually, pretty much everytime he posts, I feel happy

He's got such a sense of humor, I would never have expected out of a 'big-shot' in a company. It's good to know that we've got "one of our guys [enthusiast]" with a say in things.

Well...that settles that! *wipes brow*

I must say that I was worried due to the way the article was written. It made it sound to be priced comparible to a base Camaro. In fact, I like how Scott puts it,
Quote:
"The new Camaro WILL be very very affordable."
I like that WILL and double very...hehe...that works for me!!!

Just means that "the big v8" that will "plant and old mans ass in the seat" will only be very affordable.

I think he was destined for this role...Settlemire. And he tends to end arguments and debates over rumors when he settles the matter...

Then he also commented a while back that his initals are S.S.

Coinicidence? Um...yeah - but still pretty cool!

When you think about it, $40K for a limited edition top of the line custom Camaro is really, really encouraging. I mean that undercuts the GT500 doesn't it? Yay.

What do you think a Camaro would cost that can transform from a car to an autobot?

Well, if it costs 3 million to build the concept Camaro, and a TFormer is supposed to have over 10 thousand moving parts...I imagine it would be WELL over, like way, way, way over 3 million.

I was in Wal Mart today and saw they have a huge remote control Camaro Concept. Red and Silver. It's like 2 feet long or more and looked really good. I think it said it was from Jada and it did have the really large rims.

I might buy one for my nephew for Christmas and tell him he got my new Camaro before I did. heh $70 it was.

There's no way GM will be able to sell 100K of these a year at that price.

PRAY, PRAY, PRAY that this supposed price is for a base model "Bumblebee Special Edition Camaro" is just that....for a "limited production" edition. Man, does that scare me for GM....and for my chances of picking up a Camaro.
Why not, Dodge did with the SRT8's they were 43k

The Camaro ain't gonna start at $40,000. I haven't seen but one SRT8 out on the road.

Factor in the paint job (which we already know is expensive), plus all the extras we know will be in there. Add in the collectibility factor and sure, it would be at least 40k. The 40k number is only relevant in terms of taxes. So, anyone who wins this has to pay prize taxes on $40,000. I wouldn't look too much into this when it comes to the pricing of our own Camaros.

They are all over here, I see atleast 2 per day on my 60 mile round trip commute.
They are very popular in the Washington DC Metro Area. Mostly the 300C SRT8
and Charger SRT8 but I have seen Magnums as well.

I don't expect the Camaro to start at 40k but I would expect the Top Dog Camaro to be equal to the
38K there selling the Challanger SRT8 for. I think the Top 2010 GT Mustang will also be in the 35-38K Since the 2008 Fully loaded GT is now over 30K (Not including the Vert) but in 2010 there will be a new engine and a redesign so my numbers are not that far off. so yes it is very likely that the top models of all three cars will be close to 40K by 2010 easy.

The Base Price of the Mustang GT has gone up almost 3000 since I bought mine in 2005.
and the options have gone up in price over 25% since 2005.

I was not aware that the Mustang GT has gone up that much since 2005. If it was the Top Dog you meant than yeah I agree... closer to $40,000.
