that TA is pretty sexy too.

Also, I checked out the Firebreather website and the specifications page is pretty intense. I mean mostly the car just got a ton of body work done on her, but the interior is trimmed in, and I kid you not, "Piano Black" and with red ABL. The car's posessed I'm telling you.

don't worry the camaro can be flawless in your world.

i dont see what the problem is here, he's comparing a unfinished movie propcar
to a real car you can buy right now. of course the car isn't going to feel better.
I don't have to read every review, because I've read/watched enough to know that not every one of them complains about the same thing!

Yesterday was a long day and your post rubbed me the wrong way. Sorry, I had forum rage.

Also, I've never said or implied that the Camaro is flawless.

Is that reason enough to hate the guy and accuse him of being "paid off" by Ford. He even admitted that is was an Incomplete movie car and that he had to forgive some of the flaws because of it. I think he was pretty fair on all points even tho some of his info was wrong.


Seriously if a reviewer isn't absolutely worshipping and giving anything but total praise to the Camaro some of you just have a fit. This was not a bad review at all.
It was a bad review because if he is going to make a statement that the steering wheel is the worst in the industry, he should at least tell us why. Did his steering wheel work opposite than mine or only worked occasionally?

At least that's my opinion on a good or bad review.

Did you even read my post? He doesn't have to worship the car, just give credit where it is rightfully due, to give numbers alone on the mustang and not the firebreather is enough to make it a bad review, I get that some reviewers are fanboys ( motor trend) but at least they give you the whole picture with real world numbers, and an explanation of what is wrong!! This was all opinion, he purposefully included things to make the mustang sound great and excluded things to make the camaro sound bad!!

EDIT: Think I found the earlier rendition or something close. They should have tried to stick closer to this in my opinion and put a much sicker exhaust on it with LTs or something to open it up so you can at least hear the thing. The exhaust was way too docile in the video. I would bet good money that the dubbing in the movie will be much, much more aggressive.

transamdepot.com is making that car shown above I believe

How is he gonna give track numbers on a car that hasn't been taken to the track?

Have fun crying about nothing.

I am the same size as the guy in the vid and if I do not wear a ball cap I have PLENTY of lead room. With a hat, when I hit the humps and bumps I will tap my hat on the sunroof molding.

But for gods sake man, lay that seat back. You can't drive the camaro with the seat straight up like you do the stang, got to lean back and enjoy it!!!

Recline that seat a bit and relax and there would be MORE then enough room for his pumpkin in that camaro.

The Firebreather should definatly be put into production as the Firebird, i dont care if Pontiac is gone now they can always bring it back haha >=}
And yeah it would cut into the Camaro's sales, but thats not a problem, if the Camaro has 100% sales right now, and the Firebird was introduced, the Camaro's sales would drop to 75%, but the Firebird would also get 75% so in the end GM would make a 50% sales profit, it'd be totally worth it.
Plus that would push Ford to re-introduce the Cougar and Mopar could re-introduce the Barracuda =D
You've just gotta find ways to make the Firebird different than the Camaro other than just looks, like if the Z28 has an LSA, then make the Trans Am have an LSX454 or an LS7, which by the way is NOT going out, i saw a video on the LSX454 recently and the gM rep stated the LS7 was alive and well and still very very popular and that it will be around for a long time to come.

And a side note, i definatly think this is the best looking Firebird look-alike that ive seen yet, those retro 5th gen Firebirds the aftermarket companies have been trying look god awful, this looks amazing

Problem is, i like that generated image, it looks awsome, but when its brought into reality it just looks horrible, for some reason the transition from computer generation to reality kills it. And a quick note, the side vents on the fenders should be above the "Trans Am" decal.
Personally ive hated every Trans Am recreation from the aftermarket companies, they all seem awsome in computer generation but they look horrible in reality, i especially wasnt a fan of the ducktail spoiler, i love the idea of ducktail spoilers, they look awsome on the Camaro, but somehow they made it too big and goofy on the 5th gen T/As, i preffer the Firebreather.
The Firebreather is a better candidate for a T/A cause its not a completely retro design, it looks new, its fully updated and brought into this generation, BUT it has enough nastalgia to make you go "oh yeah thats definatly a Firebird design" yet it doesnt make you go "what the hell did they do to that 70s' Firebird?" LOL, i like it better, i wish they would make a 5th gen T/A from this design

@5:30 he lies. I'm 6'6" with the seat lowered and my head does NOT touch anything, not even in ones with a sunroof. And i'm really tired of people shorter than me saying otherwise.

Yeah, the hype on the movie is leaning toward "LOSER".
The car looks neat but its a little overdone...smaller hood scoop and less pronounced Joker-Face would be more palletable (IMO).
Did anyone notice he calls it an "EATON" super charger, but its an Edelbrock E-force??? Does eaton make it for them or is that just a "type" of blower?
