Countdown to Camaro

By my estimate, assuming a 10/1/08 release, we have 429 days left until it's here. Anyone think it would be cool to add a countdown to the web page header or footer? I know it would only be an estimate, but I find myself thinking about how long we still need to wait, then doing the math in my head.

Seems like a long time, but when you think about how long we have already been waiting, it will be here before we know it.

Maybe it's lame idea, what do you all think?

Thanks!

Don't think it's a lame idea. We'd need a good date, though. Think about all the people that come on the site and see a counter. Even though there's a disclaimer that plainly says ESTIMATE ONLY, people will probably still get pissy when it's not out by the date....or GM releases another date further away and someone just doesn't get it.

Don't get me wrong. It's not a bad idea at all. I'm just concerned about folks who don't understand a GUESS.

Maybe we could put one up, then alter it if GM releases a Sure-fire release date, I'm sure nobody will notice.

-OR-

We could just Wait untill GM gives a Sure-fire release date, then set up a timer.

But all in all, I agree, that's not a lame idea at all! Excellent, actually!

Of course we could always set up a timer that read:

DAYS TILL CAMARO RELEASE:
"We don't know, do you?"

On my Myspace, I had a counter that let everyone know wehn my EAOS was (The day I got out of the Navy).

I could easily set it up on Myspace and forward a mod here the code for it...they have websites that do the code for you.

I need the estimated date you want me to start off with, it's easy to change.

how can you "count down" to a date that is not set yet? that's like a countdown to your wedding day when you have no significant other... just save and wait. have some faith to follow blindly hehehe

Well we already have our significantly other, the Camaro, and we have heard that a q4 2008 release date is realistic. I would be willing to be that it will be out by then.

It was just a thought.

Here's what you're looking for-

I have a 5th Gen Countdown on my MySpace, but I used 1-1-08 since 1st Quarter '08 is the current official release info.

Don't you mean 1-1-09? Because yours would mean it'll be released in less than 4 months...:eek:

This car is crying for Blower or a nice Twin Turbo set-up. Just not sure what I am going to install but will keep the car stock for a few weeks. Because of customer support which is second to none I would go with Paxton for the S/C if I go that direction again. If not I guess I will have to this again

It is not the install but the tuning that makes the difference. Having perfect welds and top shelf parts don't hurt either.

This car is flawless and is my friend Johns FordGT.

Correct me if I'm wrong. But, that countdown was put up well before your thread was started. Sorry...they did beat you to the punch.

AND...there's no countdown here because there is no ACTUAL date to count down to. Unless you just want to pull something out of thin air. After all, the employees keep saying different months with everyone they talk to. Ultimately, it's still the first quarter of 09. Now....when is that going to be? I mean...the actual day....

It isn't a bad idea. Don't get me wrong. But...IMO, there's no point to it if you don't have the date.

The countdown link was added to their site on 8/2. My original post was 7/27. Looks like the countdown is to 10/1/08 (4th qtr) when we have been told to be believe production will start.

We'll just have to wait and see I guess. I agree, we don't have a date set in stone but I still think it's cool.

If those dates are correct on when it was added, I was wrong (sorry). I thought it had been up for a while longer than the thread. Still...it's not a bad idea. I just think it'd kind of odd counting to a random day.

Give us a date where something final has been announced...the day production begins, the day the 1st Camaro rolls off the line, etc, etc. and I'd be happy to have a counter. Otherwise, it's like, "5!, 4!, 3!, 2!, 1! Yeah!!! *crickets chirping*....*looks around*...hmmm...what was supposed to happen when the counter hit zero? hehehe....sorry...I just find it kinda funny counting to nothing. Don't get me wrong. The idea is great! But ya need that date!

Great idea but Tag has a point. Theres so many guests too that just browse, we don't want to piss them off when the time is incorrect and then they go buy a Mustang or rice burner/cooker/rocket. LOL.

Anyways that would make the days go down slower =[[[
