    I think somebody should tell these car companies that a four door car is NOT a "Sports Car". It's a family car, no matter how "Sporty" you make it.

    it just so happens that GM High Tech Performance magazine (recent issue) showed a concept GN in Black looked similiar to GTO, Nice design! w/ a twin turbo V6 450 BHP-Keep praying to the Muscle Car Gods! :notworthy

    I've got a theory. I think GM rests names every now and then. Sometimes they have to like in the F-Body situation, but they always come back, especially if they are popular like Camaro Firebird and GTO. I don't really like the new GTO but they did bring it back almost soon as the firebird left. Camaro and Firebird have been out for 35yrs, THEY'RE COMING BACK. I bet both of them. Maybe not at the same time, but both will be back.

    My other theory is GM is trying to repeat history. Back when the first mustang came out around 65, 2years later we have F-bodies.

    The new 05 stangs just came out with this new retro look, I think GM is watching fords sales with it before they try to make a retro Fbody. I mean they already did with the SSR.

    Here's a little evidence to prove my point,

    After two years of watching the Ford Mustang enjoy tremendous success, General Motors finally launched its entry into the pony car segment, the Chevrolet Camaro. Although available with a mediocre six cylinder for volume sales, the Camaro could be equipped with several V8s and a myriad of performance options. Then, of course, was the famous Regular Production Code, Z/28, that would change the industry's view of pony cars.

    That's about the first Camaro. This is why I think they're going to try to repeat history and plus everybody is hearing 07. That's a 2 year difference.

    I also wouldn't be suprised if GM put that flyer out talking about a 4cyl SS to make Mustang owners feel comfortable until it comes out and before they no it we pull out with 475hp.

    4cyl F-bodies have occured, but GM will not let us down like that. That would just be wrong!

    The camaro is coming back,brother-in-law works for gm and he said they moved up the return date after seeing the success of the mustang and even further up after they got in financial trouble. G.M. is almost as bad financially as chrysler corp. was in the late 70's early80's when lee iacoca came into save them.It's going to be a retro look based off the 69 camaro.the different models will have differences about them like they did back then such as doors over headlights ETC...The plant is in canada and they have already started retooling the plant,it's supposed to be kinda a secret one of the news channels did a story on it.How the plant was shut down then all the sudden years later they come in hire people and noone will talk about whats going on. hate to say it but G.M. lost their ass bt puting all their eggs in one basket(suv's)and just giving the rest over to chrysler an ford.Chrysler is after Ford now by marketing their 300c to police departments.People want american muscle that's why ford is doing great in the car market.The gto is a holden car from australia i believe,and its been out many years.Wouldn't have one if you gave it to me.Maybe GM execs are finally seeing the light ....we'll see soon i hope..

    They didn't tear all of it down just some of it and now it's rebuilding.They needed some more poen spaces cheaper to tear old and build new is what I was told.
