I do see more women driving mustangs where I live but I also see less Camaros so it's somewhat hard to judge. I can think of 3 women off the top of my head with z28 4th gens (late).

Pontiac got rid of the GTO and is getting rid of the Grand Prix. Sounds like a strange move considering how many Grand Prix you see around. The word is they're trying to move more into compact cars and then have a few RWD V8s. The idea might be to bring back the GTO and Grand Prix as one car? A 4- door with a big V8...you know an Impala :p



If you actually have the MT issue, turn a few pages and look at the new BMW (335i I believe) then look back at this...strikingly similar.

There are several other points that were not mentioned.
1. The active fuel management system if offered will make the V8 VERY appealing.
2. The convertible will definitely appeal to women. Perfect example, the Chrysler sebring for several years was the most popular convertible.
3. The Camaro will be bought by a significant number of older drivers. If today you went from a Mustang Cobra SVT, to a Corvette, your insurance would go down (that is what my boss just did).

Great points Al.

My sister, who's always owned Mustangs, and currently drive's a 'vert GT, has always liked the styling of the '69 Camaro, and seeing a recent photoshop of a 'vert 5th Gen., commented that she'd be interested in owning a Camaro 'vert.

I love this thread. I had soo much to say to kill that article off completely and the i read bassists reply. Completly killed him. Gto's powerful but homely. Loved the coment about the classy girl (got one myself). One thing though, for some reason there are alot of girls who drive mustangs (must be because a v6 stang is cheap enough to make them feel like they actually got something). Camaros will kill.

When you(I mean us) glance upon this guy's article, one's first impression is that okay he is a journalist. He has to mention the good with the bad. Objectivity is supposed to be the name of the game. But then, you(I mean us) read another line, and another, and another, then it hits you. He's not a journalist, just a JERK! Sorry for my french. First of all, the most appealing thing about this new Camaro is its zeal! This car screams to those whoever sought appeal in old school, retro, fast cars will come to appreciate the new Camaro when it hits the streets. Ford enthusiasts(including my best friend who almost convinced my to buy a 'Stang in '04) are intimidated by the influence this car will have to its perspective buyers. He posts these proposterous numbers in his column to what, make us cringe? maybe change out minds about getting behind the wheel of this masterpiece? Wow, good way to use the algebraic numbers pal. The reason the GTO failed, in my opinion, is basically beacuse of the look. It had a monster engine and sound to it, but the look was not enthusiastic of the conventional american muscle car look. It sounded like a "goat" but looked like a sheep. Anyway, my hands are getting tired. This Camaro is going to have people trading in their 2007 'stangs to become like us, ANXIOUS!
