The interior is suspect and the weight is just outragious. OMFG. This

Too Bad our car is car will be faster no matter how much we weigh. I dont think you GT500 can keep up with 556hp. Even after the redesign its only getting a max of 515. What a great car.

Do I sense a drunk post in this thread? Good times.

I like the Camaro's interior just fine, although I agree it could stand to shed a few pounds.

I'm on the fence too. As I've said before, I'm with whoever can provide the most amount of fun for the most reasonable price. Last time I bought a car, that was a Mustang GT. This time, it could be a Camaro if GM doesn't botch the pricing like I'm afraid they will. However, still keeping the faith and all that good stuff.

The GTO was called heavy. It was still much much faster than the mustang in corners and in strait lines. This car has better suspension and better proportions. I think pretty much any interior is an upgrade over the 80's escort stuff found in the current mustang.

Opinions are like a$$holes, and you're one big opinion aincha.
The weight is in line with this class of car.
You were vague on the interior comment, I like it....Alot.
I will agree some kiss up a bit much, but we have a GM rep pretty high up the food chain who is willing to listen to any comment, even yours, and if it has merit pass it on. I hear he's a nice guy.
Have you seen the new Rustang concept? Good golly miss molly, did kindergarten class design that front end?

Hate to say this, but i noticed long ago that CHEVYs was a covert Troll.

While i've pegged him as a kid, i feel that he is ignorant about a few things.

IRS add weight. I and many other would perfer to have the weight of IRS in are camaros then reduced weight and a live axel like the current mustangs.

The Camaro also meets the new safty standards. Look closely and you will see things such as side impact airbags. Looking at the frame of the car imagine this thing could come out merely bruised if it went though an unreinforced brink wall!!

I LOVE THE WEIGHT! Why? Because it makes the car more drivable on ice and snow!!! May need a few sandbags in the trunk though.

The mustang will gain weight also, it is just a matter of when. Rumors are that they will get irs eventually also. And what, saftey weight is comming to? Oh noes.. The mustang will be a lil piggy also.

What's wrong with the interior? You do not like it because it seems to have more appeal and potential then the mustang's?

I'm reporting this for a lock...if it were one of the many legitimate Mustang guys on the sight with legitimate comparisons, I'd be all about some constructive competitive discussions.

But this is trolling through and through and offers nothing.

I don't even bother with legitimate comparisons, because there is no point, the camaro, when comparing to a mustang of the same trim, will win in terms of looks, straight line, and in the twisties.

Why is he even attacking Scott? i dont treat any man as God, but I respect his work greatly.
I was planning on keeping my 1998 Trans Am (automatic) as my main car for few years till word of the new camaro came out in 2006. My car outputs 360 horses from the rear wheel, has respectable torque ( and unfornately now 20 mpg on the highway if lucky)... and i've won a few (illegal) cross county races from the excellent proformance GM provided. So many people cant believe that is an auto.

My older sister owns a white 1998 convertible stock TA and i can say that these cars come the from the factory with impressive proformance.

So for the camaro, i expect nothing but a modern marvel.

Well if your on the fence..... spend some of your own dollars and come out to Indy. You can see the car in various trim and make an informed decision. As a bonus you might even get to meet God.
