In addition to the list above, here are a few other things.

Smaller than 20" wheels that can still handle the Brembo's, (Black in color).

The most stout suspension PeddersUSA can talk Chevy into giving us, so we don't have to waste time upgrading it!

A Direct Injection V8...maybe a 350?!

T-Tops!!! ( Jump on me if you will, but I'm REALLY going to miss not having 'em on these 5th Gens!!! )

As far as the V6's go....

Posi for the V6 auto, and the ability to turn off the Stability/Traction control!!!

And get rid of the governor/electronic speed limiter, and add a 250mph spedo. ( I know I'll never push it that hard, but I'm old school...I don't want a computer telling me I can't do something! )

Computers are kind of like lawyers, they're best when they're not interfering.

Even without the limiter, the Camaro (even the SS) won't come anywhere close to 250 mph. It won't even come close to 200 mph. A 250 mph speedo would end up just like the GT-R, where 60 is just a few degrees off 0 and buried down at the bottom. That would be stupidly unusable.

I am thinking there will definately be a Camaro serving as Nascar pace car next season, but I have never been a fan of pace car replicas.

I would like to see GMPP LT headers and functional air intake slot. True posi rear would be nice also.

Chrome intake louvers on the hood like Gen 1 would probably look good too.

Push button start or move the ignition to the dash, where it used to be.

Well, as far as the governor/electronic speed limiter goes, I don't want it on there! I may be full of sh*t, but if you don't believe an SS could even come close to 200mph, I think you're WAY off!!! If both the gearing for the transmissions and rear end, engine rpm red line, and height of the drive wheels/tires are as advertised, my mathematical formulas would say otherwise. Throw in the .35 drag coefficient for the SS as reported in another thread, then pull over and watch. If the right driver on the proper track had a go of it, I think some jaws would drop, all the way to the floor! That one boy from Fresno, Gary Scelzi got an SRT8 Challenger up to...I think it was a little over 170 mph, (and there may have been some more in there he could have gotten). Give him a new Camaro and let him have a go and see what numbers he comes up with?!!!

Now, as far as the speedometer goes, I'd like the aesthetics of a 250 mph version, even if it is, "stupidly unusable" as you put it. I can't even tell you the last time I looked at my speedometer while driving. When my eyes come down out of the glass, it's to take a peek at my gages, then right back up again. I'm so used to my car, I KNOW how fast I'm driving! I believe most people who have a fun car and actually enjoy the act of driving can do the same thing. Those who can't need to clear their minds, turn off their cell phones and stereo's, listen to their exhaust and enjoy the road!!!!!!!!

NOW THAT WE HAVE THAT ESTABLISHED, here's the most important part of this post. That gorgeous blonde in the photo in this thread is Amber Lancaster. Here is a link to 214 more photos of her and some other models at that car show. Take ten mins. away from Camaro5 and enjoy!!!

There is a HUGE difference between 170 and 200. Once you get up in that range the power/aero/etc required to increase the speed changes exponentially. The Camaro may go 1 or 2 mph faster than the Challenger but thats about it. The 4th gen Camaro and Firebird had a better coefficient of drag and couldn't get over 178.

The ZR1 with 630 horsepower barely breaches the 200 MPH mark. I love the Camaro, but it won't even come CLOSE. Your mathematical formula doesn't mean anything because it doesn't factor in aerodynamic drag. In fact, I thought the 4th gens actually topped out in 5th gear, because there wasn't enough power to overcome the aerodynamic drag in 6th.

Well, the 5th gens don't have enough power to do that, the Z06 doesn't either, so I imagine that a stock 4th gen has a snowballs chance . . .

I ran a bunch of numbers a while ago, and the 5th gen SS's should top out at 175-185 mph. Auto is gear limited, manual is aero limited. I think. Exact numbers are not possible because I could only estimate the cross section and there haven't been any dyno runs.
