Cool! Happy to be part of the big family.

I traveled Europe for 6 months and when I talked to people about cars, Camaro's and Corvette's always came up. Didn't hear about a Mustang once. These cars really are world renowned.

Over the years I owned a '67 Firebird 400, with a M-22 Rock Crusher, what a great M4 that was! Then I owned a '69 Firebird conv. Sprint for 10 years. Then a lull, and I saw the concept of the 5th gen Camaro and I knew one day I would own one, now I do and enjoy driving again. Thanks for going back to the future.

Awesome memo. I remember the "keep faith" messages on other forums.

Now I wait as my '12 gets scheduled to build next week. It will be my 4th Camaro. Thank you and everyone who is involved with these cars.

I hope that the recent success of the car carries it far into the future and that we won't hear the words "hiatus" or "discontinued" ever again!

I never used to be a car guy. I was always very utilitarian and never bothered worrying about styling, acceleration, handling and performance-in-general. The first time I saw the Camaro concept, I thought to myself "I really have to get one of those."

In January 2010, I fulfilled that wish and bought my 1LT RS which I have loved every day since. The design spoke to me in a way that I had never experienced before, and the performance for the money I (gladly) spent was more than I could have expected.

I may not be one of the early faithful; but, a big thank you from a new enthusiast to GM and the community of long-time faithful Camaro fans. Without you, I would have never discovered my inner car-guy.

Now thats the kind of press release I just love to read. It is VERY refreshing to see GM back on top of their game again, and as for the performance cars. This 53 y/o thinks this is a GREAT time for performance car enthusiasts, who'd of thunk it just 4 short years ago, thanks for all you guys do!!!!

Thanks..... this is my 3rd Camaro (94 Z28 and a 2001 SS) and I'll never forget the day that I got to see the concept car back in 2006 at the All GM Nationals in Carlisle, PA. I'm sure you'll remember this............

I'd like to send a big thanks right back at ya! GM has made such an incredible car that appeals to everybody, and because of this the community is so varied and involved. And having someone "on the inside" who is connected to the community in this way is unprecedented and really adds to the culture.

So thank you comrades!

Did the 2001 memo tell the Pontiac fans to have faith that the TA/firebird would return? Not a dig Fbodfather but a lot of us would still love to see that return...I don't know how to suggest it be done but would still love to see a production TA version of our Camaro. Maybe do what Dodge did when they discontinued Plymouth and switched a few nameplates over to Dodge or Chrylser?? Cadilac or Buick Firebird?? Have to think about how that sounds...probably Buick over the Caddy...or maybe just the limited edition "GM Firebird" Maybe a TA-1 with T-tops??

I think a little bit of me died when I had heard the F-bodies were going away. I was mad. Hurt even. I understood why it happened, but that didn't mean I had to like it! I was elated to see the Concept and to have one in my driveway is truly a dream come true.

Thank YOU Scott (and Camaro Team)

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Great post. I tend to think of it a little differently tho. When I read there would no longer b a Camaro in 2001, I placed my order for my SS. I wanted to be sure I didnt miss the boat. For the last ten years I have been the proud owner of black SS, although it's really only a car to admire with 240 miles. I now just need to make up my mind on when to buy a zl1, and yes I will drive this car.

I remember the 2001 announcement. It crushed my dreams and broke my heart. I never thought I'd own a brand new Camaro SS. And I certainly did not want to drive anything else.Thank you to Team Camaro and GM for bringing the camaro back and making it the best it's ever been! My dream became reborn in 2006 because of you! (And achieved in 2011.)
