The Camaro is a far superior tow vehicle -- longer and wider wheelbase, less overhang, RWD, better tires, and heavier (plus more power, for those who are too impatient to tow safely). It should be able to safely tow the 1991 New Yorker AND the trailerload of toys at the same time.

I'd guess the Camaro's safe towing capacity (assuming that GM would put in the R&D to rate it to its full safe capacity, which they won't, since they have no reason to) would probably be around 5,000 pounds and would usually be limited by tongue weight, which I bet it can't reasonably handle a huge amount of.
Yeah I was just pointing out that if my pos dailydriver can do it, than the camaro should do it, if not better. =p
