I hope not. There are a shitload of Stangs out there. What really bothers me is when I see a 70 year old lady driving a Mustang like mine. Well, they usually don't have GTs, but still...

Simply put, with all the anticipation, and excitement associated with the new Camaro, it'll be quite a while until we see dealer lots with Camaro's sitting on them in any great numbers.

As for "new" information, I'm thinking not until next years NYIAS. I'm hoping the "big event" for Camaro enthusiasts will be the reveal of the production version.

I hope we see a lot of Camaro's by the second or third year - based on a HUGE respose to the first years model.

Info-wise, I think a few tidbits will be thrown our way, the end of this year, and then Next year's NAIAS, the production Camaro will Steal the entire Show! ...(so I agree with you moose -meant to say that earlier )

I agree that I HATE seeing 300 of the same car driving around my town *cough* Mustang *cough*... That is one of the reasons I am so sick of the Mustang. I hope that GM can sell enough of the Camaros to ensure that it stays in production, but not too many so that I won't pass 50 cars just like mine if I decide to go to the mall or something.

Of course I plan on slightly modding mine, so it won't look exactly like anyone elses, but still...

I noticed when I put my billet grille on my car that it made a huge difference But then there are people who still think they saw me go down the road when I've been at home all day. I'm thinking "LOOK for the grille! It's my trademark!!"

Exclamation Fleets...

Interestingly enough, I just finished reading an article regarding fleet sales.

Last year, fleet sales accounted for about 30% of new Mustang sales :eek: .

I am really looking forward to seeing many more Camaros on the streets again, so long as they keep the fleet sales in check! Having 30% of new Camaros end up in rental fleets isn't going to help ANYone out, including us or the General.....

I think the fact that the Camaro ISN'T the dime-a-dozen muscle car on the streets is why I like it so much.

Granted, the fact that there are a million Rustangs on the road also means they have the best aftermarket...companies see so much money available there there's going to be more to choose from.

Fair trade-off IMO.

Not going to lie.... my absolute dream car is a 1970 Ford Mustang 302 Boss, Orange paint with black Boss stripes. Course with the Camaro not being a problem the mustang will have to match so I guess the Camaro will have to be Gold with black racing stripe like in all the convertable pics.

I hope GM makes the volume of sales they need to justify the new Camaro's exsistence, but, I don't want to see one every time I go out either. I swear that everyone in south FL owns a damn junkstang.

I thought that GM's intention with the GTO was to only bring it back for a few years . But hey I could be wrong .

Oh - I was just commenting on the poor sales volume for the Goats. And I believe you're right about the limited number of years for production.

It wasn't supposed to be a huge seller, though. I least that's what I heard. People didn't like it's styling - but still bought it for it's relatively (at the time) cheap power.
The only other place you could get an LS2 at the time was in the Vette at $40k +.....

After a few model years of the 5th generation Camaro you will see as many of them on the road as the Mustang. You won't at first simply because enough of them wouldn't have been built yet.

If GM intends to move over 100K camaros a year like the Mustang (which we already know is true) you won't be able to help seeing them on the road as much.

Though Camaro owners, by nature are more modest, and try not to FLASH OFF THEIR CAMAROS (hint, hint ). So the chances of seeing camaros is slim...oh, who am I kidding? The Camaro will own the roads 5 years or so after it's release! muhahahah!

As long as there is a considerable difference between a neutered Camaro and a power-packaged one.

We all know that it will be at LEAST a 3:1 ratio of 6-cylinders to 8-cylinders on the road...so as long as my beauty can outshine a 6-banger, I'm happy.

Customization, that’s how you differ yourself from the crowd…

Bah. I see more "customization" in the 4th gens RS and no-trim Camaros than the Z28 and SS models on the road.

And 99 times out of 100 it is utter crap and an embarrassment to even look at.

Wheels, trim, hood, badging and color schemes....they should set apart the real cars from the toy models from the factory.

I'll leave customization (tasteful and subtle) to separate me from the other Z28/SS models on the road, but I want Chevy to handle the differences between the models.

Just my pipe dream.

Beh, what do mean “Beh” what are we sheep? I don’t remember saying “install your crap magnet on your new Camaro and drive down the tacky isle at your local auto parts store”… I’m on the same page; clean, cool, customization that separates you from the rest…

the bottom line is those gay assed lil V6 cars keep the muscle car in existance. because of the volume of sales and fuel economy standards set forth by uncle sammy.

I don't care how many they make. or how often i see one.. none will be just like mine

I think that you will see a TON of V6 Models, that will be the staple, if Chevy does not make a lot of them then how will it survive, Ford made 250,000 a year with 3/4 of them V6's (not factual, just a guess so no attacks). I am guessing that GM will make and sell just as many camaros as they did in previous years, ther in the business to make cars not collectors items. Like Shelby, Saleen and Roush, they are limited production cars.

I and going out on a limb here but I would like to see the following, V6 Base (240hp), V8 standard (400hp "Z28 & 425HP SS) and a super camaro limited production (500-600hp) (like GT500). But by 2011 there will be just as many camaros on the road and there are mustangs today. and I can't wait to add one to my stable

I believe that 3/4 of Mustangs are V6's...just count during the week - Fog Lamps = V8, no fog lamps = V6...

hmm Z28 = 400, and SS = 425 I wonder where that number difference was derived from...
^^^^ But I agree.

Actually, I believe there is a new option package called the 'Pony Package' where you can get the fog lamps in the grille (only way the Mustang has any personality imo, thus a 'must have' option) of the V6.

You are right about the pony package giving fog lamps for the V6, but you can still tell the difference.

The fog lamps on the GT are larger and more plain looking. The fog lamps on the pony package are smaller and there are more chrome accents in the grille.

I thought there might be a difference, but wasn't positive.
