Is it me or was this site more fun a year ago?

For some reason i think this site was more fun to visit a year ago. Dont get me wrong i still love this site. I just enjoyed not knowing anything about the 2010 Camaro so we could use our imagination to predict what the final car would be like. The headlights, taillights, grill, engines, transmissions were all things we would speculate about. But now that we know almost everything about the Camaro, theres not many interesting things to talk about. Anyone else feel the same?

I agree but not for the same reasons. People can't hold a decent conversation without trying to jump down your throat. If you don't agree with them, they have a problem with it.

Getting back to your issue, things will pick up as soon as we start getting our cars and seeing them on the road.

It will definately be tuff for me because most of you will have your cars 9 months or so before me. That's gonna be really hard to read.
But I certainly will be reading at how much you guys love the car and what you think about it.

Look on the bright side - you will be seeing so many cars with different color/stripe combinations that you will be able to be sure of what you like before ordering. We all bought sight unseen last fall.

I only joined about 3 months ago, lurked for a few months before that. People are getting antsy about getting their cars now that they are ordered. Things will calm down and be happy again when they are out on the road.

It will be hard for me to see all of you with your cars when I have to wait at least a year longer to get mine. But I will enjoy reading about them and seeing all those great pics so I can maybe actually decide on a color.

shoulda been here 2 years ago... things come and go. the site picks up strength then slows down a little. we are in a lull period right now. we've got just over a month before the car starts getting made... then things will pick up

That's going to be a lot of fun! It will be quickly followed by the new mod section! Oh, I can't wait.

I can't wait either. There will also be a mod section for cosmetics because once the after market starts reving up, there will be plenty of neat stuff to look at.

I see little of people jumping on anyone unwarranted. What I have seen is that as time goes by, people find more and more to complain about and that we have had an influx of trolls.

I heard that there putting a v16 engine in there, and fuel economy is 315 miles to gallon, i heard it was comming out in 2011 named the ZL1...........\i miss speculating....
Atleast we now know that our camaro is almost in our driveways, just a few short monthes away, we know everything we want, we have our dream cars ordered, and we'll be burning rubber as soon as we get them (after break-in of course)

With my late find of Camaro5, the excitement, at least at first, was thinking of new questions about the car and the finding the answers here. I think I literally spent weeks just catching up. Now it seems many are not so willing to search out the answers and so we have thread after thread of the same old questions over and over. Boring and....

I WOULD SAY WE HAD MORE ANTICIPATION AND EXCITEMENT BUT ONCE THOSE CAMAROS START GETTING INTO THE HANDS OF THE PUBLIC I EXPECT TO SEE SEVERAL PICS, STORIES, MODIFICATIONS AND SO ON THAT SHOULD LAST WELL INTO 2009. ONCE THAT SETTLES WE CAN START TALKING IMPROVEMENTS AND OTHER CHANGES FOR FUTURE CAMAROS.

I agree. I only read about 1 of every 25 posts, because most are the same old stuff... someone not caring to research to find an answer about pricing, motors, options etc... or someone bitching to GM about something they don't like.

I agree with Classic,

Once Motortrend gets their grubby hands on the camaro, we'll be back to fun..

Its the home stretch guys. Less then 3 months and some of us will have the best sports car on the road.

Back then we pretty much let our imaginations run off because we had no hard data and facts. Now it is getting more serious. Some people are mad, others happy, and the rest are talking about mods. Once we all start getting all of our cars, the site will become fun again.

I have been coming to this site everyday since early spring 08.I believe it was alittle more fun back even a few months back.I was a silent member for months, because of people attacking others.I limit my imput , because there are just so many that know everything.I still love this site and believe it is the best site dedicated to the 5th generation Camaro.
