Much better than Daytona- At least you can see the nice Camaro body lines. The white/orange (1969 retro) combo would have been the way to go in my opinion.

I too would of liked to of seen a more retro style to the Pace car than that. This one looks like it was thrown together at the last minute. I think the pace car Jinx did looked the best.

I'd have to agree that Jinx's design is REALLY NICE!

I'll just get this out of the way first (I love Mustangs), however, the new Camarro is a nice piece that warrents a second look by anyone who is seriously concidering a pony car. I think GM did a great job on this vehicle.. I just hope the buying public pays attention this time. I didnt get to look at production numbers yet for 2008 Mustangs, but I did see how many Shelby GT500's were made (8134), and (1968) GT500KR's were built, I couldnt get totals for Mustang GT's and regular mustangs but they usually do about 130,000 a year and probably about 80,000 to 90,000 during these difficult times. The Dodge produced (6400) 426 bhp 425 lb/ft torque Challenger SRT-8's and will shoot for 30,000 to 40,000 v-6, 5.7 v-8's and SRT-8 for 2009, but I doubt they will make it...

I hope these cars all do well, when they do well it breeds competition and all breeds get improved and grow... I want to see Camarros, Mustangs and Challengers compete/out do each other.. OK... enough politics not the bad news bow-tie-boy
Your not going to want to hear this but... FORD just released official pictures and stats for the revised Shelby GT500... 540bhp 510lb/ft torque 3:55 rear gears and 6speed and just as fast as the outgoing GT500KR but with better handling (for the life of me I have no idea why theres no IRS suspension)... Check (chess!!!)
Thanks for the to the Camaro

nice guess on those mustang numbers....found this from mustangblog.com
"Sales of Mustangs for December of 2008 were 4,027 compared to 8,315 from December of 2007 showing a 51.6% decrease in sales from the previous year. 2008 Mustang sales are 91,251 compared to 134,626 for 2007, which is a 32.2% drop."

Sure does show the effects of the economy :(

Definately a +1 of wanting to see all the american pony cars duke it out again


p.s....we went through all the new GT500 info months ago so it's old news to us (we've got our eyes on the Ford and Dodge folks too) They are also most likely going to be $15-20K more than an SS too

Well I must admit that I was wrong. When white was stated as delayed availability on the Camaro, I stated that the Indy pace car would be white with orange stripes and GM wanted to hold white back at start of Camaro production to make the pace car stand out even more. Obviously my prediction was not based on any insider knowledge. And obviously my prediction was entirely wrong. But I'm not the only one who thinks they should have made the Indy pace car white with orange stripes.

That Jinx design is awesome..... I LOVE those grills.

As for the pace car, it's nice looking. Certainly more subtle than the Daytona car but if I had to choose between the two, Daytona all the way.

Those that say it should have been white with orange stripes are right on! Somebody made a PhotoShop of such a car, and it is soooooo beautiful. I printed out the image and stuck it on the wall above my desk where I can gaze lovingly upon it all day long.
I agree, white with orange would have looked so much nicer as the photoshop someone did of it.. I would have been easier to paint...Oh wait, perhaps they can't paint white...oh well..Still, a custom white and orange paint job would have looked a lot nicer..But to each his/her own..Only 2 people like it and the rest don't...I wish GM would have asked us to vote on the color scheme, would have been a nice gesture..

No but I know a man named Mike in Oklahoma who will most likely have one in his garage. He is a serious collector of these Camaro pace cars. I believe GM will more than likely make sure he gets one.

I think it looks great... I would definitely have to add this one and the Daytona 500 car to my diecast collection if anyone ever produced them.

I have to disagree. I was never a fan of the Daytona paint scheme. I realize that all pace cars are flashy by design, but I think the Daytona car took it a little too far. I don't even think the colors go together that well.

Having said that I also agree with an earlier post which stated they would have liked to see this car use some blue and or orange to tie it back to the 67 and 69 pace cars.

It is great news,but since we're throwing in opinions....

What if GM showed "our community" 5 different color combos etc,we vote on the best look for the pacecar,and they go with what the majority liked...I was betting on the white with orange stripes bigtime...IMHO,but still better than a Rustang leading the pack.

For all of you that want it to be painted like a 67 or 69, remember while it takes styling cues heavily from a 69, GM doesn't want to and shouldn't market this car as a carbon copy of a 69. The general public needs to view this car as a 21st century car, not a gas guzzling 60's muscle car.
