Performance = G8 production in North America?
Hybrid = ???
Upscale = Cadillac or Buick?
Replacement = Next-gen Impala?
Old School = Please say Holden Statesman brought over as Buick Park Avenue...

And can I ask when you heard this info?

Hylton. To be honest, after the frist few weeks of us building them and the hype dies off,
it will just be like building an impala or any other mundane car day in and day out. Dont get me wrong, we are VERY grateful for the product, but in the end, it's just that to us, a product.

But right now, i am like a little schoolgirl seeing them at work.
Which model did you drive and how did you like it? Second, out of all the colours you have seen, which one is the best in your opinion, and have they built the Elusive Cyber Grey Camaro yet? You are one lucky guy, just dont RAPE mine, just be gentle, I will go rough after i break her in!

Not far. But they will have to catch me in my Silverado! Those suburbans are no match for me in the snow!

a6pk2go- "That mays me feel great. Just put some extra goodies in my car and don't charge me for them. LOL " I wish, i would have the halo headlights in my silverado by now!



FenwickHockey65-Performance = G8 production in North America?- doubt it, but you never know
Hybrid = ???- has been announced about a month ago outside of the plant, no model specific, but i would bet my money on a malibu hybrid
Upscale = Cadillac or Buick? -cant say
Replacement = Next-gen Impala? - slated to cease production come 2012 i belive, it was extended as per our last contract, but it could change as well. But the new model, think replacement for a aging vehicle
Old School = Please say Holden Statesman brought over as Buick Park Avenue... - Close, it is rumoured to be a holden design, just not a park avenue. Look up on the interweb on what nameplates Gm has recently trademarked/recopyrighted.

And can I ask when you heard this info? Union reps and management after the truck plant closing debacle in aug/sept. Gm is shutting us up with more product for the sneaky and unprofessional move of closing the truck plant after barganing in bad faith.

Again, what i say here could already be changed/canceled and is in no way the gospel truth of whats coming down the pipeline. For all we know at this time period, we could all be assembling Lada's a few months after the next year lol

But there is a solid definite 2 we are getting on that list. Hybrid and 1 other.

It was a preproduction model. we were told it was a zeta underpinning, i dont think the engine was one of the actual camaro engines. it dident sound like it should have which led us all to belive it was just a 5.3 v8 just to have it mobile. All the pre-porduction camaros we have had at the plant has other engines in them, different v6's different v8's. Not for possible applications, just to have them mobile.

what can i say, COMFY COMFY COMFY car. spacious interior, yet with a cockpit like tightness. the ride was SUPURB. Finally a camaro that doesent feel like a tank when your driving it. visual perception out of the windows and mirros was excellent with a low blind spot. We dont have the room to open it up inside the plant track so i cant comment on cornering or acceleration. Wouldent matter anyways as it wasent a camaro engine.



Out of all the colors i have seen. For me to pick the best, it's hard. they all look great. I am bi-partial to the orange as it looks amazing. Black looks phenomenal as well, but personally i would not buy another black vehicle from GM unless they went back to solvent paint, i found out on my silverado AFTER i got it home that it scratched WAYY to easy "water based paint"
also white and black have a different pigment structure.

But if you want black and have the time to care for it, by all means it looks mean as hell.

The blue looks good too

I think that about answers all your questions.





























Oh yeah have they built the Cyber gray yet?

i dunno

I looked, couldn't find anything. But it sounds like a Grand idea . . .
Oh how I missed the days of speculation around here.

80Z,

Is black the only water based product being used? Don't they still have a urethane clear on them?

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks Hylton Yeah, I just dropped by on the weekend to see what was happening here. Seems like a nice bunch of guys overall I still haven't seen the new Camaro in the flesh, so I am dying to see if it looks better in person like everyone says!
