I was talking to a Chrysler engineer at their proving grounds, and they, the engineers, were trying to convince Chrysler to take the 68 Charger body, and start producing it with the modern upgrades. As can be expected, Chrysler refused, saying a retro car like that would not sell. No wonder they are in trouble. I would buy one in a heartbeat.

Absolutely! To me that is what makes the Camaro so popular. It is very close to it's roots. Of course, the Challenger is too. I've said for years that if someone built a new car with modern amenities and a 69 Camaro body that it would be a hit.

Re: the amount of "retro" in the modern (c5) Camaro.

I think the ratio of retro to modern in the C5(50%) is much better than in the Mustang(70%). there are some aspects of the old camaro that MUST be in the C5, to be sure. The "wasp waist, for starters and other elements. There are simply more modern elements Id like to see in the next gen. A steeper raked hood, for example. Just MHO.

All I know is this.. When I got my car, almost every little kid said, "You got the transformer car!?" or "You got bumblebee!?" I have never heard a mustang being referee as a car from a specific movie.

Honestly, 28., if I ever get ahold of an SS front fascia* I plan on finding a way to make it do that "KIT" red light thing. EVERY time I see the mail slot SS FF I think of KIT. Best. Childhood. EVER!
Cheers.

I used to love the Night Rider Mustang. Especially when it talked. I used to watch it all the time.
