I just thought about this. Man we really cut this down to the wire didn't we. Fbodfather said we were safe 5 months ago when all of this scary stuff started happening. Good call! I don't want to play poker with that man.

Ok a few things.

1. It's not 15 years ago, comparisons to cars 15 years ago simply are not valid.

2. Watch your mouth about obama, without him GM would prob have gone under already. Bush and other GOP snobs driving their imports were only too happy to watch GM fail.

3. Things change every single year with cars, I wouldn't be surprised if there's no 2012 SS camaro, if not the 2011 getting scrapped too. But we don't know. No one knows. Anyone pretending to know, is full of it.

Let's not open the discussion to politics; especially when you obviously have no idea what you are talking about. The Bush administration rushed to approve the primary bailout in order to save GM long before Hussein took his oath.

So much for rolling the dice by waiting until next year to get employee discount....I'm taking mine at MSRP from the first run for sure now.

well looks like my camaro's gonna see a looong tour of duty. I for me a car is a little more than a way to get from point A to B. If that were the case Id be driving an Aveo. Ill never buy a car that doesn't perform, to me thats a waste of money.My "Big" V8 gets close to 30 mpg, no way in hell Ill ever settle for some gay "eco friendly" car that ends up getting me the same gas milage.

Yes, because the war criminal didn't feel any pressure

I'm done with GM then after the Camaro SS then. And if the SS is discontinued before I can get it in 2011/2012, well the GM lost my business for good. There are still manufacturers out there that know the way to my heart. Sounds like I'll be headed to Mazda, Hyundai, Nissan, or BMW's CPO lot next.
