I just don't see the business case for a $65Gs+ LS9 Camaro, from GM. I CAN tell you there was a stillborn LS9 Camaro that was supposed to be unveiled at PRI...in 2009! Mr. Money backed out at the 11.5 hour...mule on the ground, engine ordered, and "afterhours" support in place from certain GM folks...

A "story" for another time...

Go out with a Bang!
Many of us have been through several oil crises and the corresponding end to the muscle car. I am confident that will be true and we'll be celebrating the American Muscle Car for a long time. It might be twin turbos or electric, but there is something about a burnout...


I have to spend some time in the suspension section. It has gone to ---- in a hand basket.

Too many stories in our industry end like that.

I needed a retreat....to become truly one with the Z.

It's time we lay some smack-down on these blue-oval intruders...

(And to deal with the work that life had thrown at me. Apparently, fate and fortune don't believe I'm allowed to have a minute of free-time.)

You like that, huh?

I didn't mean it to sound arrogant...but it does have a certain ring to it, doesn't it?
