You're absolutely right about that but passion doesn't stop to this kind of thing
as my actual car has a 16 gallon gas tank guess how much I paied in dollars this summer for full tank?................$100 and it's diesel !

So I think if i own a Camaro next year i will probably put a bioethanol kit in it.
And you know what? Here in france we have to pay a sup tax for this kind of engine that spits lot's of CO² => $3300

Is life not beautiful in France?

The crowd was really amazed ! people were really charmed by the beauty of the car, they stayed a very long time stuck like trees. In fact many people new the car from the film "Transformers" not from the 2006 detroit presentation. Others who didn't know the Cam at all were amazed.
The vette ZR1 was just behind I took pix from it too but the feeling wasn't the same people were just curious about the ZR1 (sooooo expensive) - The Camaro is a killer.

Ok lot's of discussions about the SS emblems which vanished my theory is : during WW2 the SS platoons were the worst thing that existed in our history, they were hitler's slaughtering troups that made many massacres in villages around Europe - Their emblems were two bolt S and the "totenkopf" => a skull ! I guess that's why SS would remember our people some very bad nightmares.

There's another theory of mine and I hope this is the good one : Chevy Europe really wants to sell the car but it'll be only the V8 engine so no need to putt SS emblems.

Interesting..never even crossed my mind that the SS emblems might've been mistaken for gestapo(sp?) symbols. Maybe Chevy will use '1S/2S' logos instead..

L'Europe va probablement seulement recevoir la version V6 pour rester en accord avec les règlementations d'émissions de l'Union européenne...

En passant, j'ai de la famille à Nantes! Mais disons que les performances du FC ne sont pas de quoi s'en vanter. :P
