My family is doing pretty well then...I'm waiting on my Camaro and mom just bought a new Equinox a few weeks ago.

Good to see Toyota is still pulling the fleece over everyone's eyes on their "Eco-Friendly Prius."

I am proud to be an owner of a vehicle of this caliber - but couldn't they have used a more market-realistic photo to demonstrate the message? Not bashin the announcement at all, and definately not tryin to steal the thread - just wish they would have included an appealing SS model/color to represent our passion and "muscle."

Extremely just the same. I love you V6 guys/gals.

There's just something unique about the Camaro that no other car has. If you buy any new car people might come up to you saying "ahh man nice car" but if you bought a Camaro you'll always get "ahh man nice Camaro" there's just something about the car that leaves people awe-struck.

Yea, yea. It's "only" an LS shown there, but you have to place this in proper context. It's still a 2010 Camaro and it's still the same car,not someAveo (no offense to the veo crowd) understand that the person the picks up a 6 speed manual Camaro LS is driving a true design and engineering bargain! It will be seen by future car afficionados like the poverty caps classics of years gone past. let's not forget, it will still give you permagrin while turning all those heads and be waaay cooler than most Mustangs! eB

Used 75 Camaro = $3500
Rolling restoration over 10 years = $5000
$5 of gas burned in 10 seconds = Priceless!

How did the Prius get car of the year and eco-friendly car of the year when it has been RECALLED due to BRAKE FAILURE! Lol seems like kind of an important little piece of information there

Now we need GM to ensure that the Camaro remains true to its heritage and not repeat history, falling into the econobox category. No Camaros coming out of Oshawa with less than 300 ponies under the hood!

I think with the 2011 V6 Mustang Ford guaranteed GM will continue to push out better Camaros. Nothing like having quality competition! It works out great for everyone.....well poor Chrysler can't seem to improve the Challenger other than colors.
