Thumbs up Review on msnbc.com -Camaro best of the new Pony Cars

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29978094/

Considering this background, Chevroletís Camaro is poised for success because itís both a stunning recollection of the í69 Camaro and because itís a fantastic car for driving enthusiasts. GM cut no corners in producing the Camaro, making it the most successful of the neo-classic pony cars so far.

Now, if we only had drive-ins with car hops

Wow, nice article. I even love the quip he made about the financial guy that balked at the Camaro even having a point in today's market.

Yeah, the point? To go fast and to save gas. Looks like the greenies are having buyers remorse for their 2hp Priuses.

Thanx for the review. Drive to Texas in your Camaro...Sonic Drive-ins still have car hops.

We have two Sonic's where I live, not sure I'd be taking the new ride there though. The lanes are a little narrow and the 'hops' have to almost rub up against the car to give you your food.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that write-up on a national news outlet.
Almost expected them to bash it, glad they didn't.

Our Sonic's have WIDE lanes, I think it's cause of the snow birds.

I really would love to have a Camaro, but w/ the current economic and managerial issues that are going on now with GM, it's suspended my wanting to order the car. The Camaro is and seems to be superior in all aspects of price-performance ratio, style, comfort, power, compared to the Mustang and Challenger, so I haven't been looking into those TOO hard. I have faith in the Camaro, but I wish I had more faith in the corporate business division of GM.

That also figured into my decision.

If GM comes out intact, I'll have a warranty AND a smokin' car.

If GM bites the bullet and fails, I'll have a collectors item
that would have hopefully given me many years of driving enjoyment.

Either way, I'm very happy to get my order in.

In other words, you aren't going to buy a car that you like from a company that you like because the economy is bad. People like you who are too scared to buy a quality product are going to kill GM if you don't buy. Buying the car makes GM more secure. How does not buying help anyone?

Geez people, the worst that happens is GM goes into bankruptcy and comes out the other end. Obama is guaranteeing the warranties. I've gotta wait 2 years to pay my Civic off before I take the plunge, but if I could sign up for a Camaro now, I would. GM can't afford for buyers to "wait and see" , they need buyers to prevent what "wait and see" creates.

Yes, I heard the warranty would be guaranteed by the govt. also. And for parts availability, if there's a demand, the aftermarket should be able to supply it. I have gone back to the Chevy dealer very few times as NAPA, Carquest, etc. has the replacement parts you need most often.

So obviously Im a chevy girl! I love the new Camaro, so I may be biased but how do I explain to my Dodge friends who just got a Challenger as to why they didn't use the SRT8 Model in the comparison for camaro vs mustang vs challenger? they say its crap cause ss is the top of the line in camaros and RT is for challenger

it is thinking like this that wil put GM under. If GM makes a car you like then buy it, it can't hurt anyone and it could keep them in business... Obama has promised that the US government will back GM's warrentys, so unless the US government goes under you are in a no risk situation...

Their website with plain ol news stories doesn't seem to have the same slant that the TV version does.

Well, the primary reason is price. A comparable SRT8 is $10k more than the Camaro SS, while the R/T is right on par. Its not exactly fair to compare cars that are in completly different price brackets. However,The SS should still beat the challenger in pretty much all performance areas. It has a faster 1/4, weighs less, better stopping power, and better grip.

Yeh well that Is what I told them anyways, but they werent buying it. Since SS is the top of the line for the Camaro why wouldn't they use the top of that. I just think they were sore losers in it and couldnt stand it lost.
