I don't expect the Camaro to start at 40k but I would expect the Top Dog Camaro to be equal to the
38K there selling the Challanger SRT8 for. I think the Top 2010 GT Mustang will also be in the 35-38K Since the 2008 Fully loaded GT is now over 30K (Not including the Vert) but in 2010 there will be a new engine and a redesign so my numbers are not that far off. so yes it is very likely that the top models of all three cars will be close to 40K by 2010 easy.

The Base Price of the Mustang GT has gone up almost 3000 since I bought mine in 2005.
and the options have gone up in price over 25% since 2005.

While I see your argument.. you also have to realize that inflation is up 25% since 2005. So for all intents and purposes, the mustang is still the same price. Its the dollar that has gone down in value.

One thing that will change is the corner of the paper that states "Trophy Case". "Best selling car in its class" I believe those days are coming to an end!

When I was 25, I was in a bad Motorcycle accident and I crushed my left knee, had torn Ligaments, Severed Nerves and a fractured hip. As I would love to have a manual Tranny, I can't push the clutch in without severe pain. so for some of us it's not an option.

But Don't worry, she still runs 12.8 seconds in the 1/4 in street trim with a couple of bolt-ons, stock tranny, stock motor. and my fat butt driving.

Ahh yes economics 101
but since 2005 Inflation has only risen 4.63%, yes the dollar has declined but that does not affect domestic goods.

We better hope so, I want to see the Camaro live another 30 years, I would hate to see it go the way of the GTO. For now I will have a Mustang and a Camaro in my garage, I love both these cars, I never liked the whole Branding thing in my opinion a stupid, I buy what I like not because it's a chevy or ford, who cares. but that me.

Also think about this:

Bumblebee isn't a 6 cylinder -- so we know the winner will be getting a WELL equipped car -- and the color -- they will have to be specially painted.

Anyone price out a 'custom' paint job lately with 'trick' paint? (Bumblebee doesn't have a 'regular' paint job!)

so......calm down -- spread the word. The new Camaro WILL be very very affordable.
I seem to remember hearing somewhere -- on this board in fact - that the bumblebee paint job was rumored to cost around 10k. if the cost of paint is 10k -- and 40k is the estimated value of bumblebee, that puts the Z28 Camaro (if there will be a Z28) at around 30k with V8 Engine. (probably auto tranny too).

sound better?

It doesn't take much for a paint job to easily run into the several-thousands. I worked at a bodyshop for several years and many people are suprised by how much it costs to paint a complete car correctly.

Perhaps not. The Mustang I believe has always outsold the Camaro, or if not always then most years. But no one ever said the popular choice was the best. Quality, not quantity. No offense 2KO5GT. Your Mustang is still very cool.

No offense taken,
I agree that in the past the quality of ford products and american products for that matter has been less than satisfactory. This quality preception kept me away from Ford Products. I have always owned GM Cars and Trucks and with some years the quality was been poor and other years excellent.

I owned a corvette and it was the worst quality car I ever owned so I don't perscribe to the notion that Chevy is better than Ford or VisaVersa. GM has had there share of Quality control issues even in the last few years with the Corvette,
I have a friend that purchased a 2007 Z06 and the thing is falling appart, he is so pissed for spending all that cash on such a poor quality car. Please GM do not do that to the Camaro, Please

I have never been a fan of 4th Gen Camaros or Mustangs, I had issues with their quality and looks But when I saw the S197 Mustang, Inspected it, and read about it I had to give it a try, Remember I purchased a First Year run car from Ford, you would think that I was crazy but the quality of the 5th Gen Mustang is very good, not one recall, and only minor production issues.

I have almost 50,000 miles on my car with over 200 passes on the 1320 and several laps at VIR keeping up with BMW's in the twisties, with Mods less than $1500.00 I am running 12.83 @ 106.66 in the 1/4 and putting down over 310rwhp 320rwtq. So I am plesantly suprized with the Gen 5 Stang, I hope to be equally suprized with the Gen 5 Camaro
