Hey Guys,

They just shut down the whole Camaro project. No Camaro will even be revealed at Indy this year. even 6 cylinder engines are getting phased out.

Well, Camp' is a known Ford-lover (at least former.) He was an author or editor at MM&FF or what ever that Ford mag' was called. Although I enjoyed his many contributions to GMHTP over the last several years, I think this was just something to post to stir the pot. Why would GM not announce it sooner.

Regardless, I'll be e-mailing the address he left, just in case ;D

On another related note: ONLY 5000 cars a year?! WTF?! I can see many crappy dealers taking advantage of that and marking them up crazy...

It would just increase the value of the 5th gen Camaros 10 fold if they ended up being that rare.

only sold for one year.


but dont belive it

you know...it bothers me that the execs cut the budget from 25 million to 12 million....

Damn these democrats and tree huggers..i swear we need to take this country back

i will seriously start some major campaign if they kill the camaro over this crap...come on the v6 is getting 27 mpg....and anybody who buys a v8 never cared about mpg's

gm don't buy into the hype start making commercials asking for congress to drill

if gm gets on the ball we will start something

It mentioned they were afraid it would hurt their image in these "green" times. So, just make it E85 compatible and you're done.

Agreed, unless Fbodfather says so, I think we're good. I'll take a guess how this happened: Doubtless there is an executive who hates the Camaro project. There's one in every family, as they say. I'm sure he talks about how the project should be shut down, especially if it doesn't sell so many units. He'll talk about how the Z28 will ruin the General's image and will negate any positive publicity the Volt generates. And he'll talk about this in meetings, and to his staff, and somewhere in there some junior worker, perhaps an intern, misunderstands how much sway this person has, takes their rantings as gospel truth, and whether in panicked desperation or desiring to earn their blogosphere stripes, they become a source to the yellow journalists.

Yes, the Z28 will not help the CAFE effort, and certainly won't impress the green hipsters, but if it keeps a low profile (just like the first gen Z28) it should earn the General a decent buck as a performance cult car.
