    I forgot i had pictures of the Camaro from the DC car show i went to during school. Honestly the new Camaro did look alright in person. So just wanted to share one that was seen in person, i got the best pictures i could for something that was on a spinning platform. Also i apologize for the corvette picture being blurry, but they had some bad ass custom corvettes and lambos there. Enjoy

    not so into the angle the grille has on the new camaro. and personally I'd have a bigger scoop on it. and from what i've seen the interior is too outragous. I'm sorry, but I don't know how long it would last with normal wear and tear.

    every one is going retro with thier cars...I.M.O. lets have the camaro have the retro look for the guys/gals that like that style.. and keep the trans am up to date with more of a super car type body style with nice curves...

    we have all seen the new goat? Please let that concept die and lets put the sisters together again! Maybe a few curves would save the latest f-body? I haven't seen the camaro in person but it does not excite me. Maybe a firebird built on this platform would?

    Someone mentioned dropping the roof line slightly. Please don't do that, then what are those of us over 6' supposed to do, go back to driving a family car? Never!!

    Thet should bring it back. I don't think it would cause the market to go down on any of the T/A years, they re-did the Mustang and everyone wanted a 66' or 67'. so who knows, however I'm not concerened about the re-sale value. I would like it to stay or go down a little, so the parts wont dry up and cost a fortune when ppl start hoarding them. Here's what happens, when a bad-ass car comes out young guys can't afford it, so in about 20 years or so when they have a steady income then they can affrord their dream car, and the price goes through the roof.That's what is goin on with the 76-80's Trans-Ams. A cupple years ago parts were everywhere, I bought mine for 800 bucks now I can hardly find one around.

    Oh shit, sounds like mine are waaaaaayyy overdue to break soon!

    The look of the new Charger does nothing for me. especially with its seven inch wide tires. I see no way the Camaro or Firebird would look that stupid.

    I hope G.M. puts the LS7 or even something newer and more powerful under the hood. Ford never did really try to compete with G.M in the later years. They just waited until G.M. stopped production and then stepped up the power and tried to lay claim to the muscle car crown. I say try because there are just too many of us G.M guys.

    If the new car sucks I'll have to buy a vette. Don't need the back seats anyways!

    I was just looking at pictures at the 5thgen site and I'm a little worried. The tires only look to be about 9" wide with no room for anything larger.

    There is a concept drawing of a 5th gen SS that looks wicked on

    well i agree with both sides on this one I want it back but i think they should get away from the maros look and go with there own the black car up top is hot no dought but the price will be like 60000 stock i mean the ls7 is 35000 alone if they made it completely decked out for like 40000 i would so buy one but ihtink even that is to short a goal

    40? F*&% that. I can't believe how bad car prices are jumping. As much as I hate that though, it's probably going to come to that. Camaros and T/A's were the 'poor boys' fast car. I think a lot of people are going to cash in on the icon though.

    or better yet, wait two years, and buy the one you want for a third of the price!

    so that the vettes keep selling... in actuality the LS1 engines used are 345-350 to flywheel, the same one '04 GTO has. The ws6 (00-02) has Ls6 intake manifold which adds another 10-15hp.

    i was told by someone one time when they looked at my car that i had the ls6 manifold but i do not have the ws6 package, so i have unsure about that..how would i go about finding that out? is there something on it that would say what it is or was the guy maybe mistaken? and since the engine is underrated does that mean the engine is really in the 350 range or would i have to use one of those programmer things to get back that HP?
