The 455?

Are we talking about Firebirds or Camaros?

And would that be a Pontiac 455? That would be greatness. Pontiac V8s sound better than any other GM V8. There is something undeniably sweet about the sound of a big Poncho at full tilt.

Oldsmobile 455? Ummm....well they did have an Olds 403 in the late 70's Formula Firebirds. I guess 455 isn't too much of a stretch. And like 'em or not, the 455 Rocket is pretty dayum cool.

Buick 455? Not in any F-body I know of....at least not from the factory.

But back on topic: I'm just happy to have an F-body again. Even if it's not one of my beloved Firebirds. A Camaro this beautiful is more than a consolation prize.

I'm ecstatic, and i'm just short of three years from getting mine! I'll be getting a V8, but nothing is wrong with a 300 Horse V6! Heck, my 91 Caprice with a V8 only puts out 180 horse!

If so, then it might be a Zeta II chassis, but it will always be an F-body

To hell with the whole "A V6 Camaro isn't a real Camaro" crowd.
love that mentality. and everyone who thinks it is a moron.

a camaro IS a camaro if and only if it is a V-6.


what do i mean by that? 2 things
first (not so serious). you have a camaro...then you have an SS, then you have a Z28. point blank. lol

second (serious)
THIS CAR WOULD NOT BE HERE IF THERE WERENT A V-6!!!!! plain and simple. 90% of these "good 'ol boys" have probably never owned a v-8 camaro in their life and are just living off the badass v-8, power hungry, hype of yesteryear. i mean seriously, did you think they were only going to make 2 v-8s and be able to sell enough of them to be worth a damn?

no. so get off it.

Wow didn't realize that people actually had that mentality! I'm a v-8 kinda guy and have owned 1 or 2 but v-6 or v-8 a camaro is a camaro...and the damn thing has around the same hp as a 4th gen ls1.

I have to disagree, I think it is time to change (change is good). The days of the Fbody are gone, lets move on.

There was one post from the second IDL, I believe from Mindz, that said while technically not an F body, the fourth character in the VIN of every car was going to be an F, I believe he assigned a 90% probability to it being done like that...I like the tribute....

I'm just saying that it not being the LS3 for the auto doesn't make it any less impressive.

It's good to have the Camaro back, even if I can't do the hot cam swap. I'm just proud to be a future Camaro owner.

Yeah, somehow "ZetaIIFather" doesn't fit for Scott.
