    I dont but its growing on me and its my daily driver until my 02 is done with whatever i feel like doing to it... hopefully i decide soon... it does handle a lot better then the 02 so i think thats the first thing im going to get "suspension parts" And i thought it was a good deal since my dad got it for almost 40 grand and i paid 8 thousand less

    Besides with IRS and goofy ass wheels you can't expect much in that department.
    If you want to buy something that hooks right off the bat, look at Fords Cobra Jet drag package, or Chryslers Charger drag package.
    I get that, but it's slower in every way than the ZR1 and lists for $8000 more, and it's still a Camaro with a interior that's embarrassing for a $25000 car.

    You are comparing 2 completely different markets. A 2 seater vette that targets middle aged men with a midlife crisis
    Verses a 4 seater sedan that can also haul the family around.

    And that's the beauty of it. If you are single and don't need the room, the vette would be a good choice. People with families however find the vette useless.
    We've had vettes. Great until you have kids.

    Sounds about like the going rate for any decent new car nowadays. There isn't anything out there cheaper that would even interest me in a purchase.

    You know 12 years ago there were people saying the same thing about 4th gen SS's and WS6's when they were new.

    I dont think the 5th gens will be going down in price anytime soon do you??? Maybe when the Z28 hits the stores

    Probably not. It will be interesting to keep track of sales now since the rush has passed. Especially as they go into 2011 later this year. With the new mustang coming and comparable performance for less money, it will sure make things interesting.
    Maybe that will have an affect on pricing, or as you said, maybe if this Z28 comes out.

    I'm not a foreign car person so I wouldn't know. Don't know what half the crap I see on the roads are anymore.
    But I agree on the quality aspect. I drove an 06 goat when we were looking at them about 2 years ago, and yes, I really liked the interior in those.
    I road in a new SS 2010 camaro when my neighbor was looking at them just recently. I didn't really care for it. Couldn't see a thing. My neighbor wasn't all that impressed either. They decided on a new mustang.

    Ya, it's the first year back. So there are going to be issues, things people don't like, etc....

    I just hope GM listens and makes the next model better. But then again, they listened after the 04 goat was introduced, made exterior changes in favor of public opinion and it still flopped. Guess ya just never know.

    no piss poor marketing.

    can you name a gto commercial ?

    i have heard rumors the gm never expected or wanted the gto to last much more than 2 years. They used it as a test bed to test Holden conversions and the cost effectiveness and to tool and streamline production/conversion ..and so forth ...

    it is too bad too..the gto had potential.

    also pontiac wasn't flopping by any means . it was just one of the smallest brands and a niche brand at that. so to cut costs and thin the lines of models offered ..they cut pontiac

    Ya that was about the time that insurance companies as well as TV were really frowning on advertising performance cars and driving fast on TV, so all the cool car commercials were no more. They feared it promoted street racing and all that other horse crap. Ya whatever. Not to mention the government putting alot of pressure on the big 3, promoting fast cars was just not politically correct anymore

    Remember the cool WS6 commercials around 98 or so??? Sucking up porches and spitting them out??? Burning rubber and such??

    That type of advertising went away thanks to all the conservatives out there.

    Just because the car can't get out of the 12's is simply a result of 60 foot times. It has no real bearing on the potential of the car. It just shows the tires and suspension are not there to support the power it's making.

    Mid 120's trap speed is an easy 10 second ride.
    thank you ... nobody gets that .. The 5th gen is getting sick trap speed times stock .. Just putting more HP to it dont make it quicker ... and it dont help that the 5th gen looks like a brick sitting on top of a block....lol

    Yep, that's what I meant.

    Guess you could call it what ever you wanted, it's all the same to me. Always a group of people somewhere that won't like what you are doing, and try to spoil everyones fun.
