I love Camaros.....but amazing they are not...LOL. I would say the ZR1 is an Amazing car. A MClaren is an amazing car.

A 2 seater that cracks mid to high 13s in the 1/4 and is mass produced is not an amazing car...




Amazing

I'm looking into getting the new 370z, although it lacks the power of the Camos, the new camos look waaaaay better than the previous gens. I guess I will have to wait and test drive it before making any concrete decisions.

As for the 370z. I know there were spy photos of it at nurburgring.....why no times posted yet???? maybe not that favorable?

Easy there fella, from the most current vids I've seen of the new Camaro SS they haven't fared much better, to date I've seen the 13.8 & a 13.6 at the dragstrip- I've seen an auto 370z pull all low 13's including a 13.1. We know the Camaro is going to be a potent beast, but give each car it's due.

Hey lol.



you know (talking college football for a second) Im thinking Stafford is gonna be a bust. I mean common... what did he do at Georgia? Squat. Personally I looked forward to the games where we played Stafford... knew he was gonna choke down the line



Moreno will do well in Denver though.



Gators going undefeated this year, remember this name... Andre Debose.









Back to arguing on the internet with people we'll never meet about a two consumer products

When you measure 'amazing' by the 1/4 mile, you justify the Mullet coments.











BTW We are still waiting for your factual evidence that places the 370z in the back of its competative segment like you so boldly claimed.

I think they are not going to throw Stafford into the fire next year..atleast he has his "for sure" money. Denver has always done well with UGA running backs. I think the Gators will be a top finisher this year but I dont think they will go undefeated. They are moving Tebow up under center this year instead of being in the gun, so i dont know how that will turn out. I hope Percy Harvin does well in the league. Dont worry about me remembering Andre Debose..I learn everything about my enemy..lol.

Now back to the Camaro and the 370Z..lol (funny I have been of this site for over two months moved to another part of the country and the same argument is still going strong. I have one whats the better car the 370Z or the Hyundai Genesis Coupe..lol

Drag racing is for mullets? I guess youve never been to a city before....or anywhere theres a street racing scene. Im pretty sure there are no mullets around. Way to stereotype though.

Oh guess what...all those high dollar cars that people street race with....they dont run any drifting sessions or road coarses. They drag.

As for the 370z again nissan already took it to the nurburgring and never posted a time. Meaning either A. It wasnt much better than the 350. Or B. It broke something.

Seeing as they boasted the shit out of the GTR...Im guessing A.

Drag racing isn't for mullets, but measuring a car's value by how well it will do drag IS.

The highest dollar cars are for drag? Really.



Tell that to Ferrari, Mclaren, Porsche, Bughatti, Masserati, who pump hundreds of millions of dollars a year into racing that doesnt involve drag. THAT is where the money is.

Point? All of your posts are touting the 370z on a Camaro site? That is commonly referred to as trolling.

Conversely, it would be great for you to post YOUR LS1 T/A. You had a really nice car there.

Trolling is going onto a site for the direct purpose of bashing the car for which the site was created.



Don't confuse a good Defense with Offense.

If it ain't a chevy it's crap!!!!!!!
Couldn't agree more...

Used to love going up to The Swamp. Both the stadium and the bar. Too many brain cells lost there. Now go up there for Gatornationals to see the mullets, party with my drag race buddies that are in town after they race and kill more brain cells... Oh well, time to crash for the evening.
