Camaro SS = tops in $/HP

Hey guys, I don't post much but I found this interesting article on a Canadian website. All prices are in Canadian Dollars. The Camaro SS is 1st when it comes to $/HP and the Camaro LS is second. Interesting!

power/weight for the $$ would have been a better way to look at it. I'm sure the Cobalt and the SRT4 would be tops.

Its actually lower than that because the used the 2ss model. If it was a 1ss it would be $72.86 per HP. And the LS would be $73.32 per HP

It currently is. What about when it was at par. Cost of living is also an issue.
