    i agree its time to end the old style bs, its garbage, look what ford did to the mustang, i suppose in a few years they'll want to do a fox body style mustang tribute... hahaha

    Once we see a physical concept car or a better rendering of it it will be much easier to make judgments... however for now its way too far unfortionatly, to tell much more.

    It needs more curves, like the back has some of the 4th gen look but it needs more, but obviously shouldn't be exactly the same... well i could live with a new model 4th gen just lets change whats under the hood and the interior more. (ie: more room to work with like getting that damn 8th spark plug) What would you guys really want to see with the new car, i dont want the old school look but i don't want something totally different from 4th gens... hmm

    I dont want to see pontiac go retro like ford did, i love the old school TAs but if they are gonna produce that i want the bandit they brought back/restored. if u are going to produce a muscle car ya gotta make sure it looks like it will kick ur ass on the street or on the track, like ive said above like the 02 ws6 or the 79 ta with that shaker hood *ooohhh how sexy haha*

    If the politicians keep dicking with the cafe standard we will not see any future muscle because of the 35+ mpg mandates. They are already scrapping plans so I worry we will be left with what we have until they ban them too.

    The firebird front end is way to pointy and looks 99% like a sunfire.
    Not cool.

    Otherwise all the new cars are awesome.
    I can't complain, because then I would need a waaaaambulance.

    In order to stay away from that sunfire look i think they should do what they did with the corvette headlights and make them into something sharp looking like the new vets. Its not a total overhaul but its a nice change without going retro or looking like the sunfire... ugh

    it's going to be hard to get away from someone saying that about the sunfire, cause if you really look at a sunfire...it looks like a baby firebird/trans am. I would almost say put the pop up headlights on it...but they're such a pain in the a$$. anyone's thoughts on if they should or not?

    At this point, it's not a Firebird/Trans-Am if it doesn't have flip-up headlights. By the time 2011 rolls around, the whole "retro" fad will be long over (hopefully). If you ask me, they should come up with a logical and attractive 5th-gen look that builds upon the 4th, just like 4th built upon 3rd, 3rd built upon 2nd, etc.

    I can't believe they put that picture in their magazine -- it's a bad Photoshop and an ugly car. Looks like they borrowed pieces from a Mustang and a Crossfire!

    I'm sorry, GTO's look like crap now, kill them and forget they ever tried to do that again...plant it right next to where they hopefully put the charger. as long as the trans am is not a generic camaro copy, which I always thought firebirds looked better inside and out, or something that looks like it should be launched into orbit, and it has the bird and flies down the road, it will sell.
