Thumbs up Fbodfather - Scott Settlemire Talks About Camaro Progress On Corvette Forum

There was a false rumor on Corvette Forum, because someone gave a sincere Corvette enthusiast bad info about the Camaro SS not being available until August.

I found Scott's reply encouraging in general.

In fact we've built some SSs as well as V6s as part of our early saleable pilots (for captured test fleet -- marketing -- autoshow -- advertisting cars as well as for powertrain and various departments thru-out GM)

Not sure where Montvale got his information -- but trust me, the Camaro is on target - and we're very pleased with how the car is progressing.

Are there some issues? There will ALWAYS be issues with a brand new vehicle startup. (there are with model year changeovers!)

That said -- issues are being resolved very quickly by the great team that works on this car........the Camaro team is PASSIONATE about great cars and trucks........

Boy, Scott must be on just about every GM-related car forum that exists. Thats cool.

That ~other~ forum used to be a pretty good mix of information and enthusiasm. Key words are "used to be."

Now, it's -----different------

But, that's irrelevant to this thread.

I like GM vehicles. I want a new SS Camaro.

Is it February, yet?

Goodnight.

No....Scott just has lots of "eyes" - and they report RIGHT to the suburbans for action!

Silly boys - discuss the Camaro's on the Camaro forums, and vettes on the vettes..... It's SO MUCH EASIER!
