Sweet! I wish he would have accidentally let something slip about the engines though!

Yes he did! A little slip of something like "400 hp" would have been the cherry on top of the sundae! Yay!!

That sounds good enough to me. My next car is officially a Camaro SS. I especially like how he made the pause after saying "Camaro SS," realizing he screwed up.

Awesome!
The only person who could possibly feel as passionate for this car is Scott, and even then, I'd venture that they're about the same. Point? He said he's very sensitive towards the base model car - it WON'T be an afterthought.

So we know SS exists...and it's been unbelievably hinted that Z28 exists... We're right back where we started!

Though, in MY mind, the GT-500 fighter is going to be the Z28, and the 'base' V8 will be the SS. Otherwise, Ed wouldn't have mentioned 'SS'...

I'm still happy!!!!!! (Oh, and we've now got further proof that the leaked interior shots weren't actually of the interior.)

I disagree. I think the GT500 fighter will be something new, based off of the SS model. I think GM is going back to the first gen theme with the badges. The Z28 was not the end all be all Camaro, and neither was the SS. They were both high performance, with the Z28 made for the track, and the SS more for the drag strip. I think GM will come up with something new. Hmmmm....I wonder if GM will do a COPO for me??????

Did anyone here know that the Camaro would be at this show?

If so, I'm feeling pretty stupid.

from what I've seen and heard, the 67-69 Camaro SS had a 350, while the Z-28 had a 302. The SS had more power, but the Z-28 was faster in the quarter mile... either way, I still want the Top model, whether it has a Z-28 or SS Badge doesn't matter to me.

+1

You can totally tell he didn't necessarily want to let that one go.... I was like I'll bet in his head he was saying... "Damnit, that will be on Camaro5 before we finish taping the interview."

LMAO

Well...there ya have it! The SS WILL return. And, it wouldn't be a Camaro w/out having a Z28. So...we KNOW it will happen!

Just nice to hear it! Great find, great find!!!

You've mistaken me with TAG UR IT, perhaps...I couldn't give a rat's rear-end where they put the gas-cap!

...and I rewatched the video - he DID pause! He was like "The SS...and all that....." Thinking, oh crap.
It's okay, ED!! We love ya for it!!!

Ed may have slipped the SS, but it isn't that much of a suprise to me. With the amount of SS badged cars GM has right now, I would of been suprised if GM didn't make a SS Camaro. I just hope the SS is at a price I can afford.
