WHAT IF AWD CAMARO SS

What if they made a awd camaro ss?

I think dodge and ford would sh......t there pants and cry to their momma's
i looked at a ss today an orange mett. with blk race stripes/rs pac.
it was incredible. i hope they do make a z28 but the ss would easily be able
to be turned into an 500+hph car.

post some thoughts on this idea.:

The thought of an AWD Camaro is pure yuppy mentality...go drive a BMW, a pure musclecar isn't for you!

Talk all you want about tradition, the question of how it would market is an interesting one. What would it mean if the Camaro started to sell to all those (as Gary B refers to them) BMW-driving yuppies?

Does BMW even have any FWD cars? I thought they had all RWD and optionl AWD.

GMC Syclone. One of the best performance vehicles GM produced in a LONG time. I loved blowing the doors off vettes, Vipers even a ferrari or two.
