Exclamation Now hear this:

Many quotes -- and more misquotes in the past week.

Do not take everything you hear as gospel......some quotes were taken out of context -- others had numbers and such wrong.

Premium.....the V8 Camaro will not be $37,000 -- if it were, it would bomb.
It will be affordable and it will be in Mustang territory. "Premium" could mean a few hundred dollars......

We think you're going to be pleasantly surprised at horsepower and torque numbers -- fuel economy - and standard equipment -- (Or -- Good ole fashioned 'bang for the buck' ...) This car is going to have some details that 'surprise and delight' -- ......

You've heard me say this before and I'll say it again......there is a lot riding on this new Camaro -- and some of the best in the industry are working on it.......

Have I lied to you yet??????

Now-- go forth with your enthusiasm -- (but when you hear some high pricetag put on the car -- don't believe it -- the LAST thing we'll do is price it.........)

(by the way -- the "!2 disciples of which there are 15" will be coming to Detroit in May -- and they may have some impressions for you once they return home.) (.......that is, if we can get them to stop grinning wildly....)

I don't need to quote it, but here it is anyways.

The Fbodfather hath spoken.


Thanks for putting several rumors to rest and enlightening us with tidbits. Unfortunately you love cliffhangers and teasing us still.

Hope all is going well in Motor City.

Isn't it nice to just start a new thread, and completely disspell a bunch of rumors, and...'stuff'?

Thank you, Scott.

Ahh, what a way to end a day. Its reading stuff like that which allows those of us who are obsessed (look at my post count . . .) with the Camaro to sleep better at night and have happy thoughts about the Camaro. Thank you for once again reassuring us and helping us to 'Keep the Faith'

12 disciples of 15??? what da??? Did I miss something
Back when a production model was first being made(sorry cant remember dates but I'm thinking middle of last year), a summit was done by GM that had 12 (with 3 alternates) people from camaro clubs and organizations flown to Michigan to discuss and give feed back about the new camaro. These where normal people like you and me, mixed with those who had history or had been important to the camaro (I think one guy had even restored an old pace car). I would assume at this point that they are going back to see the fruits of their labor and suggestions and for GM to ask them if "they got it right".

PS. Fbodfather, I keep pointing to my signature.. but you can lead a horse to water, you can't make him drink(think).

Yet again the Father lends his comforting hand in a time of crisis.

Scott, did you ever think about becoming a psychologist? You're great at helping people deal with their problems.

I still think it's gonna be more than a "few hundred dollars". If GM is gonna sell a 400hp, independent rear suspensioned Camaro for the same amount as a Mustang, then Ford should just stop making GTs altogether and GM should pump out as many Camaros as they can make.

That just might be the general idea.

Because there are quite a few people who seem to feel this car will be a mass failure if it doesn't match or beat Mustang's price....well, Lutz just put it out there that that ain't gonna happen.

That would be why we're so excited!!
