    the same reason why people buy pick ups and never use them.
    some people buy cars for looks or simply because they know they have power when they want it.
    why should they race every teenager out to try and prove his car is faster?

    i will be straight with you, i have been a gm tech for almost 15 yrs.
    i had an iroc in 93 when we got our first lt-1 z-28 , was hooked on the 4th gen from 1st new car inspection, the ls-1 cars where just a refinement on them, although a good one.
    but having drivin a c6 z06 and looking forward to our zr-1 delivery,i dunno if the new camaro will have enough ..draw.. to get me out of mine,instead of looking for a good clean c6.
    all that aside i have no plans to replace our z-28s yet, even with gas at 4.00 gal.
    stepping down now...resume all previous thoughts

    I'd try to race em and then have my friend hold up my chevy pillow throught the ttops. (long story I keep a bow tie shaped pillow that says American revolution on it in the car my friend find it funny to hold it out at the mustang owners after they get there ass handed to them.) And I hope to god we don't get too many people to scared to drive there cars, I drove to reno the other day some guy with the pissing on chevy decal all across the window of his mach 1 with his gauges up the side and big ass tac. He revs at me as i cruise by so I slow down and try to get him to go... nothing he backs down slows to 70 and gets in the slow lane, ppl like this give muscle cars a bad name.

    I will be excited to see one in the same way I'd be excited to see a new Challenger. I personally think my car looks better but if I had the opportunity to run 'em, I would. I can't wait to see the kills forum when this bad boy is released.

    Yep, I'm sure the looks on their faces when they lose at the track will be about the same as the guys with Chargers

    By the time General Motors gets around to actually putting Camaro's on the lots for sale , Ford & Chrysler will have worked out any bugs in their new models , along with a lot more HP . So GM better get this right first time out of the gate . There won't be time for second chances or do-overs , especially after the overly long & extended wait for this model . It'll have to have well over 425 HP minimum & a power to weight ratio of at least 10 lbs. per Horse Power .

    I'm not saying go race every mutha that flys past you or gives you a look at the red light. What I've noticed is that people that don't race just don't no matter who's the opponent or car. I don't see the point in dropping a shit load of cash on anything and not reeping the full benefits from it.

    I hope they sell a bunch, cause I want a mid mileage used one. I don't have a deep enough desire for a new one.

    saggin, the only one ever wanting to run me on the street are young guys.
    for whatever reason they are trying to prove themselves.
    most people including myself could careless because i have nothing to prove.
    when you dont have anything to prove, why risk racing on the street?

    i am one of these young guys, but i agree. i choose my races, and race when i feel like it. i usually just look over and if a guy tries calling me out, i will laugh as he revs his engine.

    most of the time its not worth it, you know you'll win, even if you get a bad launch and miss second.

    I wouldn't mind getting a good look at one in the rearview!

    While I like the idea of the Camaro coming back, I honestly couldn't justify purchasing one new when I know I could pick up an original ZR1 Corvette with relatively low miles for $35K, or alternatively a C5 Z06 for about the same price. Both cars offer similar appeal...both are relatively rare (the ZR1 much more so than the C5 Z06) and both offer performance that should be notably better than the new Camaro. Just my humble $.02.
