It's only fitting that Josh have a copy, since he's actually part of the article, surrounded by a great group of guys.

I have my copy for the archives.

Wow....that's so awesome and in living color to boot! PM sent.

But I couldn't have been there if it had not been for the absolutely incredible job performed by the GM Assembly team at Oshawa and the manufacturers of all the sub-components like like folks at Martinrea.

Oh and don't forget our fellow Camaro5 members who organized this event for us!

This car performed FLAWLESSLY throughout not only this 2100+ mile trip but also the 1600+ mile one earlier this summer! I'll have to park it for the winter before long but look forward to that first spring day when the streets are clear of salt/snow!

I can't wait to read about the trips our more "southern" members will be taking over the winter....

How the heck did I miss this post?!

I googled today to see if I could read the article online from the Toronto Star and the camaro5 post came up! I love it!

Way to go Josh, Mike Judge, Hartley Bros. and anyone else I missed! So very cool.

Great job. Any press is good press. Excellent press is gold. I continue to take my hat off to the Oshawa team and the work they do/did.

This was a very positive article which is unusual for the Toronto Star. Generally, almost all of their writers are anti-GM (including the author of that article.) Another article from that days paper basically says the interior is crap and his son couldn't stand it in the back of the car.

I didn't like the idiot reporter who put the caption "CAMARO SOLD OUT IN ONTARIO UNTIL SPRING". This being based on the fact that he went to a dearler, tried to get a Camaro, and they didn't have any. Where does he get off putting a caption like that. I hate the media.

On another note, Greame Fletcher of Motoring TV, test drove the V6, praised it, did mention about the lack of rear seats & small trunk opening. However, in the same breath said, "How gives a damn", which just goes to show that those two minor issues don't make the car. It's all about style & performance which he raved about.
