    NC is NASCAR country. Damn right it will sell around here. As for the Northerners who like snow tires and FWD, I don't think it will be such a hot commodity.

    Carpetbaggers might love 'em though...

    Personally I dont see it ever making it past the concept. Sure it looks cool and different,but boys and girls this is not the 60's.Carving out a market share when you gave it up six or seven years before would be tough even if gas was less than $3.00 a gallon.Fast forward a few years and how much do you think gas is going to cost.Lets be realistic,the Mustangs are selling because the are affordable and they look very much like a 67/68.So retro is in right now, but for how long.And lets dont forget they plan to build it in Canada.That was a problem with the 4th Gens and I doubt its going to be easier to work out in todays world with the cost of everything going through the roof.
    I have at one time or another owned one of every Generation and personally still own 1 second gen,3 third gen,and 1 fourth gen. I love them, but I'm not going to hold my breath hoping for another generation. I would love to have one,mostly because I'm a horspower junkie and I'm sure it will be way up there by then(look at the Vette).Just my .02

I think not. I'd rather just get a next generation vette.

    What do you think? Will GM make a profit or lose everything but the kitchen sink once again?
    wohhhhhhh!!! hold up... u say its too much like the 1st gen camaros and u have no connection cause u didnt start drivin until the 80s? man i didnt start driving until 3 years ago and i feel a huge connection with the 60s cars, esspecialy the 69 camaro the now production camaro is resmebled after.... oh, nad this car will be a huge success, an affordable 400hp car that looks sexy as hell..... these babies are gonna sell out faster than they can be made.... its the 60s all over again my friend, and its gonna kick some serious ass!

    sure it may sell for the first year or 2 ... Do you know how many Camaros Chevy has to sell to get their money back let alone make a profit...
    Besides the V8 cars are not the bread-and-butter of camaro sales , it is the V6.. You have to make cars chicks want to buy .... that is how you sell a lot of cars ...

    From what I've heard, they want it to be about the same price as the Mustang GT's are running.

    This says people are looking for more fuel economy in the first paragraph.

    Yeah people are looking for fuel economy, but look at the new tahoe's there selling like crazy, and now with the addition of flex fuel it should give people more options then going import. Many people want a fuel saver vehicle, and then again there are many who really don't care and go buy Hummers, tahoes, titan's and Etc.

    In the end if the camaro does not go past two years of production, then all that matters is that GM answered a need to thier camaro fanatics and gave them the chance to purchase a Camaro for one last time.

    And I'll tell you right now I will be waiting to buy one in 09

    now i dont know if this will be the same for the camaro but it may play a big roll

    oh and that 2100 is out of pocket not included in the loan
    I suspect with the 6 speed option, the new Camaro will NOT have a GGtax.

    The definition and formula is here:

    Just like the Vette (yes, even the z06) the MPG will be > 22.5, thus, no tax.

    Yes. I'm first on the list at my dealer for one of those (if they make them). They suspect that such an optioned SS won't be announced for at least 6-12 months after initial release.

    The concept camaro Is going to be a very Dissapointing performance car. With SUV type 22in wheels in the rear, and 21 in wheels in the front this car is going to suck from a dig. I would bet my bottom dollar that a stock LS1 would hand this new Camaro it's ass in the quarter mile just on the size of wheels they have on the car. Another thing, how dissapointing is it that the motor of choice for this car is the LS2. By the time the Concept car comes out this motor will be around 5 years old and they have it rated at a very poor 400 HP. Just think about all of the non sport cars that have a rating very similar to this all ready. GM is basing the car around the look's and not the performance. I gaurantee you that if the don't make several changes to this car in the years to come it will "TANK" just like the GTO's did. One more thing I wonder where the idea came from to have 22in wheel's in the rear and 21in wheels in the front came from? It makes me sick to my stomach every time I think about it. Not even the 505HP LS7 ZO6 has wheels the size the concept Camaro. GM is commiting mass suicide for this very well respected car.

    I love the way the concept looks, besides the front grille... It's not close enough to the '69!! I'm also not a fan of wheels that are over 18" on a Camaro, let's hope the wheels do NOT go in to production!
