I think it'd be a safe bet that some dealer, or dealers, will take the new Camaro and offer special models, ie.; Berger, Tom Henry, etc.

That only further complicates my decision when to buy one if and when they are in production. Do I buy one right away, or wait and see what "comes down the line?"

I will wait and pray for either the Yenko or Berger or any other dealership built Monster! Not to say that Chevy doesn't have their shit together, but since working in a subsidiary plant of GM I think I will wait to see how it all flys when the fan is started. You all buy the first one off the lot, I will wait an additional year to get the GM bugs worked out and see what happens over a year of production. I'm sitting fine with just over 60k on my daily driver 99Z28. Jump and get the first model year please so that us with enough sense to wait it out can get the crackers with the cheese.

There will be plenty of tuner versions of the Camaro.
The market is already flooded with Mutang versions.

True American Muscle cars. This is what they are. Everyone recognizes "tuners" as imports.

Everyone?
Just a quick internet search shows they called themselves tuners back in the sixties and continue to do so. I would hardly call what these shops made and continue to make Rice

Here is a list of Corvette tuners:

I'm not getting on your case, bro. I understand where you're coming from, but what the shops do is tune. The shops are called are "tuners", because they are tuning vehicles to their specs. That doesn't make the car a tuner. It's still a muscle car. The refrences above called the shops tuners for the excellent work they do in cusomizing a car. The cars were never referred to as tuners in any of the above links. No biggie, and like I said, I'm not getting on your case. It's just that a vast majority of people recognize these cars as Muscle Cars. That's all.

tuner may have been used in the 60's for the muscle cars but in these days tuners are recognized as imports. i would call companies that work on any other kind of cars a modifier not a tuner. just becasue someone may tune a car or reprogram or upgrade in these days doesnt make them a 60's tuner. i would just say customizer or modifier

That would be awesome. Ford has several different models of the mustang. Chevy has the SS and ZL 1. I'm hoping chevy brings the Z-28 back to bridge the gap. Chevy did come back with the copo camaro, but it's a race car not street legal
