I'd be happy with just honest reviews instead of guys who write their reviews to "go against the grain".

camaro is not a sports car, it's a muscle car. People buy the camaro because

1) it looks cool
2) goes farily fast in a straight line, 0-60, 1/4 etc.
3) reasonable cost

they don't buy it for the gauges, as your review seems to suggest. I don't give a rip that it comes from GM (apparently you do), if toyota made this car I would buy it.

if you want a car that will drive around cones quickly then there are much better alternatives. If fuel mileage is your concern again much better options out there than a camaro. If gauges are your primary concern in buying a car then perhaps the camaro is just not your cup of tea.

This car is fun, miata's are not fun to me any way.

Understeer is the biggest flaw that I have seen in the 2 weeks I have the car.
Why they went stagger and this crazy understeer baffles me. I almost bought a guard rail the other night.

426 HP, Miata ?, Coolest Car ?, Muscle Car Icon ? WOW Factor ? Cased Closed CAMARO hands down

If you want trunk room buy a truck.
You want head room but a vert.

This car is completely awesome and no car reviewer is going to change my mind. The Camaro fills a niche market, people who want a cool car with lots of hp, wow factor. I know they have to sell magazines but honestly it took only one look of this car to KNOW I was getting one.

As anyone on this forum knows, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE MY CAMARO!!!!!!!!...

Is it perfect?....no
Do I care?....no
I don't expect ANY car or truck or house or boat or PERSON to ever be 100% PERFECT....

That being said, did I mention that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE MY CAMARO!!!...

I Sir (see I'm being nice) am amused that you got your feelings hurt by our review of your biased review. So much so that you had to come here and try to defend your self.

You are probably right. He probably never had as much traffic to his web page since the day we all initially read it.
