Bloomberg: Rocking Camaro, Haunches Flared, Rumbles Back Into

Since when has Bloomberg reviewed cars? LOL. I'll take it anyways.

Quote:
Is the backward-looking Camaro the best use of GM’s development dollars? Probably not. Will it give more ammunition to the critics in Congress? As sure as the ‘67 Camaro came with a bumble-bee-stripes option and white-wall tires.

Yet in a time with so much analysis and so little fun, the Camaro is something to be excited about, even if only a little bit. You can feel it in your gut.

Wow, I would have guessed it'd be dismissed by Bloomburg as an unsound investment by GM at this point in time, but it was a pretty fair and rather positive review. He did misstate the 426hp 6.2L mpg as 25. I think the guy really liked the car, even more than his editor maybe allowed him to print. Nice!

I hate how the media in general think they know what we like as Americans. This car will sell very well considering the climate of economics right now. I bet there are those out there hoping this car fails.

I have mixed emotions about what that writer said. Being a writer like that everything is based on instant gratification. Seems like they never have any idea as to the amount of time it takes to engineer and produce any given vehicle.

Having said that, for what you get with this car, you have a pretty damn nice automobile.

Just think if the fuel economy ratings were like they would have been in 1969? That would have brought the ECO-Crowd to your doorstep with torches.!

I would disagree with the author about the target audience being folks looking to relive their youth. I'd call that A target audience, sure, but it seems to me that the car's also aimed squarely at young professionals looking for some fun.
