i figured that... but anyway my thoguhts on saleen modding camaros, is that its just wrong... its like having a jaguar keychain and driving a pinto... jsut doesnt fit. Seriously though look at saleen's website and the pricing on their packages. Now if baldwin motion or someone of the sort got into it and did straight performance for a reasonable price then that would be cool. I mean come on who needs a 17k paint option

There will not be a Baldwin Motion Camaro. I would think GM might want to team back up w/ the reliable SLP. They are probably nervous about getting back together w/ GM seeing as though the rug was kinda pulled out from under them. I also, wouldn't limit the aftermarket to SLP alone (we still don't know if SLP will team back up w/ GM...fingers crossed).

The reason people post false information is becasue EVERYTHING at this point is pure speculation.... I don't think that I had put anywhere in the initial thread that this was the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.... You really need to calm down.
hey casull, everyone has a right to an oppinion and a statement

Well, considering that your post was in direct reference to ME since I POSTED THIS TREAD, then I think i am entitled to address your comment. Not to mention that each of your posts that I have commented on have been simply becasue of your diluted perception of what should be contained on this website. I don't know if you or the moderator edited your post from earlier, but posting things like "this web sight is going to shit" will not only lead to your being banned, but also lead to members not taking you seriously. Take some friendly advice and calm down

That is kind of what I was thinking.... at least in the top model. I have however always contended that it wouldn't make sense to have 2 400+ HP models... make the base v-8 in the 300-400 range and the top model 400+. I can't imagine it having anything less than 400HP. Downgrading the HP from the current GTOs wouldn't be smart IMO.

Fiction. They aren't working together. Could they? Anything is possible. Will it happen? Not likely at all.

You can let your friends know that the only thing Saleen and GM have done together is build two Bumblebees for a movie. That's it.

I know what you mean. I'm going by the very reliable info I have obtained which contradicts what that article said. Still, it's GM's call on who they work with.

I hope not

personally I hope that they dont work together, I own 2 Mustangs, and am trying to get rid of them, and all of my wifes family loves ford, I dont think that I could handle hearing them all the time " Well at least Saleen worked on the Mustangs first, now they are just looking for sloppy seconds."

I like the idea of GM and Saleen working together because they will have proven performance parts that you can buy later when the pocktbook allows for major upgrades.

Theres no reason to argue over anything.NOBODY knows for sure until its publically released.I will offer my opinion .
The car will most likely be available in mid 08 as an 09 model year.I believe this is true specially due to the styling matching the 69. I can see the commercials now " 40 years ago blah blah blah introdicing the new camaro on its 40th anniversary blah blah blah"

I also dont believe if saleen had the information,they would be at liberty to talk about ANYTHING.Im calling the BS flag on that too...............some internet crap to keep us guessing.Im guessing a 6cy model,ls2@400 or so HP and then something to compete with shelby 500........

In order to look foward, you must look backwards in the U.S. car business these days.History always repeats itself.........


ford mustang styling also gt 500, ford 500
chrysler 300s,challenger,daytona,charger,ect
chevrolet silverado c1500 ect

Ditto. But having it be an 09 model would make it a 42nd anniversay edition. If it were an 07, it would be the 40th annv. I agree that would be pretty cool, though.

I think that thing w/ Saleen was him doing some wishful thinking or some computer user trying to have some fun. As of two months ago, there was only one company whom GM was planning on working w/ and it wasn't Saleen.

The "friend(s)" we know have a fleet of black suburbans which will appear immediately after any unauthorized disclosure. :slice:

I'll just put it this way....it's only rumor and could easily be false. But, if it's told and it's true, then there goes GM suprise! Sure, I'd be happy knowing about it, but I don't want to spoil GM's suprise!!!

Not sure why Mr. Saleen would say something like this...but let me assure you that he does not sit in any meetings concerning the Camaro as a production car.

(at least at this point in time....)

Suffice it to say that Camaro must remain 'best in class' in all measures of performance.
