Pathetic: Car and Driver's "24 Cars to wait for"

i got my second issue of car and driver today, they have the new 2010 mustang on it at the front page, and so in bright orange letter it says "24 cars worth waiting for" i pretty much knew what to expect but was shocked when i didnt see it, they have the g8 gxp, they even have challenger covertible's and the new mustang there...so where's the camaro? i would have bet my life on the line it'd be there. i dont know who to e-mail there let them see the huge error they've just made by not including the camaro... is it bad it kinda depressed me alittle? =/

Which is why I have never subscribed to them and never will.

Definetely write the editor and tell him what a crock of shit that was....DO IT! And post up his response when he sends it back. Ask what he is going to do in the next issue to rectify the situation and keep a subscriber. Seriously.....that's some BS!

Let Car and Driver know.

In my opinion this should at least be a sticky.

I admit C&D won't care. But, they should know that we are in complete disagreement.

So for no other reason than to full up the email box; I say we let them know. They get to put that crap in print. We get to disagree through email. Seems fair.

Here's the editor(s) email to Car and Driver Magazine. (not the website editor)

editors@caranddriver.com

I recommend we all use the same subject line:

Camaro5 Members Disgust with June 08 issue of C&D - "24 Cars Worth Waiting For"

I say let them have it. In the true Camaro5 manner. A respectful well thought out argument based on real data and true passion that basically says WTF!!!

I'm writing mine right now. They can expect a whole bunch of

If you do send an email to these people, and you use the site name...please hold up it's good reputation as a respectful forum.

Don't go off on a rant, and call names, etc...That would look bad on the site, and it really is uncalled for.

Sorry,

I should have checked with the Mods before I made the suggestion. But, I'm confident that the members here will stay on point and not just flame away.

I understand you don't want the site to look bad.
