Thumbs up The Joy of Six: 2010 Chevy Camaro V6 RS (Autoblog review of V6 Camaro)

Love the lead-in:

Quote:
The V6 Chevrolet Camaro. This is supposed to be a joke, right? The bent-six Camaro was Detroit's version of the triple-white Volkswagen Rabbit Cabriolet – only girly-girls needed apply. In the case of the Camaro, said chicks generally had big hair, cranked Slaughter on the ACDelco cassette player and actually used the ashtrays in the manner for which they were designed. If you were a guy driving a V6 (or, God forbid, an Iron Duke four) Chevy Camaro during the time Def Leppard boasted its original lineup, well, that was terribly unfortunate. The dudes with Z28s and IROCs doubtless s******eded as you rolled by with that exquisite rental-car exhaust note. This "Six Stigma" applied right through to the F-Body's demise in 2002. So let's be honest with one another: the six-cylinder car was for hairdressers. Which brings us to today, and the arrival of the new, 2010 Chevrolet Camaro V6. After driving the SS during the week of the New York Auto Show, we were prepared to be bitterly disappointed with the pre-production six-cylinder Camaro RS that The General sent us a few days later. So much for that. Preconceptions? Obliterated

The best part of the article (I think) are the pictures! Now I am totally in love with Aqua Blue Metallic! And I never even gave it a second look before really....
Man that RS looks nice in that color

Awesome. Love this line: "You can make a pretty strong case that the V6 is really the better car."

My dealer just e-mailed to say he got their demo car in. So I may have a chance to test drive a black 1LT with 19" polished wheels for myself tonight. Wish me luck!
