The rear diffuser is sick and makes the view the imports see even more menacing. We have beat them at there own game and hopefully brought some of our misguided youth back to the Generals Army. Of corse it's just my opinion and I could be wrong.........
There isn't enough force on the rear of the car for downforce to be a factor until (I would guess) over 100mph. Also, downforce works by creating drag. That is pretty much the last thing I want at the track.

I don't doubt the concept of being ricer upsets you...weren't you posting about putting lambo doors on your new Camaro? I'm not saying you shouldn't do it, it's your car and this is America. But in my opinion, yes, that is rice.

WOW just WOW. First I want to thank the people who were able to attend Indy and are taking pictures and sending the folks at home play by play updates. I have a few questions though. all the performance parts mentioned, particularly the headers, are those for both V6 and V8? and what are the colors for the stripes and engine covers?

On the GMC Acadia the HUD is a $340 option, I would assume it would cost the same on the Camaro. Big bummer that people have to wait over a year to get the HUD option though, really lame.

BTW, no news on the Supercharger huh?

I wonder if that is something that can be installed by a dealer later?

That sucks, that is the one I like the best.

Can someone get better pictures of just the cars in the top picture of each banner. I am curious as to what all the pointer lines say.

Almost anyone looking into this car segment is going to want one from the beginning and this may cause waiting lists that may spill over in interest for several years. I don't see sales volumes dipping significantly till after 3 years, baring fuel prices changing drastically. Just introduce the model with the most current appeal. Don't use 10 year old technology 2 years from now and try to pass it off as innovation. There's no reason all these future features I.E. heads up, convertible would be available from the beginning. It seams to me the Volt was put on the fast track given the technological challenge witch should have added extra development time and the camaro wasn't. Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining just frustrated to wait almost 4 years and maybe 5 or more for those of us that want a vert. Remember word of the concept started hitting the web around Oct of 2005. and that's after 4 to 6 months of development.

The scary thing is that the way the market is going,we dont know how long a V8 will be available,or how high gas prices could sore.im not trying to be doom and gloom,but..this might force me to either get one before H.U.D comes out and be pissed when it does come out.Or...look to the Vette or the G8 GXP.

uhhh... i think most of it they can have back

80% of that crap I wouldn't even consider and the other 20% I may have to take some time to think about. all that body kit crap, "wing", just lost some major score points with GM to the "true" american muscle fans compared to the let's incorporate "too slow and furious" rice w/ new american platforms. damn stick to the heritage GM :upset:
