grrrrrrrr, going through DVR again. . . Think I saw a convertable commercial though I guess I missed it?? twice?? ehh . . . .

GIMMEH Z28 NAOW!

HAHA ok just found the bumble bee comercial.

only one so far though . . .

lol someone probably already posted this, but I just found all the chevy comercials for the superbowl @ chevy.com. ehh, guess I should have gone through 10 pages of posts haha. The vert at the end of the superbowl is probably why I thought there was a vert comercial.

I WANT MY Z28!

Is GM as cryptic as the FBODFATHER in thier most recent press release above in their descriptions of the unveiling of most anticipated CAMARO at the Chicago Auto Show?

Subliminal messages ?

Of course, It's a stretch, but since both the commercials so far, one with TF is Z28 (allegedly) and now a Z28 in the Silverado commerical
I'm willing to bet you are right. It makes sense, these guys just like to play with us and make us think! I LIKE IT!

i have my idea as to what it may be,simply a guess like most here,...
i am a chevy/cad. dealer employee and have been at the same dealership now for about 28 years,back in 2003 g.m. had a small poster of a car that was called a "ss concept"
it is a four door car with the rear door handles kinda un-noticeble,a decent looking car that is along the line of the dodge charger,i took a picture of the poster this morning with my phone and will try to post tonight when i get home,......i have the poster still hung on the wall in the back of my dept.,

GM would never make the colossal mistake of building a four door and calling it a Camaro. It would be called something else.

i was'nt saying that it would be a camaro,...based on the camaro,but of course called something else that what be a competitor to the charger,....i would like to see them come out with something like the chevelle from 1970' or maybe even the nomad,now my wife would love to have an old nomad,..and we are all probably just pissing in the wind here at all the speculation as to what it may be,but we will all know in a couple of days,

My guess is that it will the Chevy Caprice Police car. That or a sport wagon, that sounds cool. Or maybe the G8 St as it would have been called. After all it was supposed to come over, now it can with a Chevy badge on it. I just hope its not a re-done G8. I love my G8, and would like to keep it a rare bird. I just know, if they re badge it as a Chevy. People will say "nice Chevy man"

In my opinion, they should release the Chevelle and here is why:

If they were to use the Camaro's platform to revive the Chevelle they could continue to produce the Chevelle long after the 6th Gen Camaro debuts. This would ensure that the R&D cash used on the 5th Gen could definitely turn a solid profit even though the current Camaro specific chassis is only 5 years old. Alot of the 5th gens cues and styling could carry over to the Chevelle including the 4.5 link IRS suspension and LS3/L99 and trannys. They wouldn't have to just scrap the whole design, they could offer it in a revised CTS-V like design. It would be big, alot of luxury, maybe add some more roof on it to fix the visiblity, take the wheelbase and length up about 6 inches and make it look like a Chevelle.

The could squeeze the lemon for every drop so a hasty redesigned Camaro won't show any loss because it will basically still be a 5th gen Camaro underneath. Instead of just getting the 5 year run from the Camaro, GM could actually stretch the chassis's life out a couple of years and make profit. Abandoning the platform needs to happen on the Camaro but that dosen't mean it has to be completely thrown out all together...

I vote Chevelle SS.

Sounds pretty reasonable to me except for one question. Are full frame cars a figment of my past never to be revived? I think I know the answer!

Big bodied cars? might be hard to pull off in a couple years, but having a Chevelle SS that is 196 inches long isn't much bigger than the Camaro is now.

I think it's a pretty solid idea, probably one of the main reasons GM choose the Zeta platform was because the worldwide sales involving Holden most likely paid for the R&D and initial production cost so slapping it on a Camaro was met with minimum cost set back. So why not push the chassis out to 2016 letting GM redesign the Camaro to compete with the Mustang and still cashing in on the platform until it becomes impractical (and illegal).

How much do you think it would cost GM to re-skin the 5th gen and badge it Chevelle?

I wish I could be at Chicago on Wednesday, not only is it my birthday, but soon to be the birthday of another great GM performer. Guess I'll just have to cover my screen in birthday wrapping paper & unwrap it to symbolize Fbodfather's gift to me. LOL.

Perhaps reviving the Trans Am as a special Buick model even......? I think the most exciting news would be a vehicle not carrying the Camaro nameplate and looks.

You don't understand how the development of a new car works right?

Extensive R&D would have to be done on any car, no matter what. It's not as simple as change something here and there and all of a sudden you have a brand new car. Creating a new car would be just as expensive as anything, for what?
A car that no one knows if it will sell. A car that has no real heritage behind it.
R&D on a any car, whether it uses the Zeta chassis or not, will cost money.

IF there is a new car based on the Zeta, it's better to do something that has a substantial marketing backing, something that the general public will want.

Not happening.

Even if someone at GM got the idea to bring the Chevelle back, it would still take quite a few years for the car to go into production.
