I think it looks awesome.

Wow, you guys are really a bunch of haters. So the guy said some bad stuff about GM while he worked for Ford, how dare he. Get over it. I guarantee if he makes a Hi-po version of the Camaro you'll all be in line , clammering to get one.

That did up my opinion of it, thanks.

Is this a concept car? Or a reveal?
'cause if it's a concept that would explain a lot to me....... It looks like a ride at a County Fair.....


...one more thing: you'd think that after working on BB, Saleen would learn what a GOOD yellow looks like.

I won't be in line for one and neither will my wife... and its not because we hate Saleen, its because I can build Mustangs better than they can with parts from the Ford Performance and Jeg's catalogs... so why would I think that Saleen, Inc. could build a Camaro worth a darn? Saleens are overpriced and slow... they always have been and they always will be... the S281 is only slightly faster than a 2002 Camaro SS and the S281 Extreme is priced like a Corvette, but performs like a Mustang... I'd buy a Roush modified Camaro before I bought a Saleen product.

cliffs notes: Steve Saleen is a moron and Saleen cars are overpriced and slow.

Rule number one: if you want to do business with someone, DON'T insult them. Plain and simple.

And He's not the only one making HiPo packages. So no, I won't be standing in line... If he wants my money, I want his apology.

If I insulted you would you want any different? I'm just not ready to give him a pass on what he said, AFTER he had already built the transformer cars.

Why do you think we would? I would be offended if Steve even tried to do something with the new Camaro. His cars are slow for the money. Not to mention I can put my own mods on the Camaro and not pay a stupid amount of money for just a few horses.

Great thing about this is...he's not even with that company any more! So he just handed his namesake Company a bunch of pissed off Camaro guys...not smart.

I personally like the way the lines flow better. Just seems to put the Lambo to shame in my opinion.
