Very nice I think with the New Camaro and the Volt things will get better for GM if we could just keep the news media from scaring the American public to death about the crummy economy maybe some of these companies will make it.

GM needs cars that inspire passion and can be a beacon of light to direct people to their other offerings... the Camaro is THAT CAR.

Does anybody find it WRONG that the cop pulled the guy over just to look at his car?

Whether he liked my car or not, if a cop pulls me over for no reason, I will report him. He abused his authority in this instance. I love cops and am so greatful that they do what they do on a daily basis, but overstepping your boundaries is not cool. So this cop put on his emergency flashers, pulled someone over (causing stress on the driver), creating a dangerous situation with a cop standing in the road...and why? Because the guy thought his car was cool?

Honestly, if this guy didn't pull over...because he knew he didn't do anything wrong, he would've been ran up on charges. Nothing grinds my gears more than people abusing authority.

Two of my friends are cops and I'm in good with a lot of the cops in my hometown but it's ridiculous to hear something like this.

Dude, car shows and dealerships come around for a reason. Just follow the guy until he pulls into a parking lot to talk to him about it.

Just read this on CNN. Nice read! GM needs this good exposure out there right now! I grin now everytime I see one of the new Total Confidence commercials! Can't wait til they are actually on the road!

If the cop pulled me over for no reason but to look at the car, depending on my mood I may have gotten his badge and called and reported him. Its all on tape for them to review..I don't do well when being pulled over, I freak out and get the shakes..

That ABM LT/RS was gorgous!!!! The v6 is really getting some mixed/ bad reviews just on the exhausts note alone. Doesnt surpirse me but its still a great sound, just not Camaroy but what can you expect with a v6. It is one of the best sounding v6s though!
Yeah the bit abou the angry SS was nice to read!
