    ya, ive been saying that also. i think the retro was the wrong way to go wth this car, but at the same time if it performs well, then i'm glad its back and would like a T/A if there is a camaro. i do think the new design is cool looking, just wish they wouldve just built off of the 4th gen design instead of going retro

    I have been saying from the introduction of the retro mustang that this whole retro fad that Detroit seems to be caught up in is an indicator of the current lack if imagination that the auto makers are suffering from. Appearantly they couldn't come up with any fresh ideas that would sell and in order for ford to keep the mustang from going the way of the camaro and firebird they had to blow the dust of a 40 year old design and rely on the concept of designers who are probably dead by now to sell cars.
    Retro is cool for about 10 minutes, after that it's just an new/old idea that becomes an old/old idea in a hurry. Besides where do the designers go for the next idea if they stick to the retro crap. Keep making the following year retro design? At that rate by the time Ford gets to the 1974 retro mustang, they will be back to making ugly pieces of shit that don't sell. Do we really want GM to follow the same road? The early & mid 80's F-bodies weren't exactly the best design to roll off the line.

    i liked the 3rd gens, and the poll isnt about retros, simply that the camaro IS comming back and whether or not it should join it. who says pontiac would go retro, look at the styling in the solstice

    Maybe you should look at the photos and read the posts on the previous 5 pages. Looks like the the thread is about 5th gen firebirds that look like 5th gen camaros that resemble old style camaros. Hence the word "RETRO" or to be completely grammatically correct "RETROCEDE".

    well if the TA did come back, one could only assume it would look very similar to the camaro, which we know is 'retro.' so therefore, i think talking about whether we want the car to come back retro is a valid topic. like i said though. i'd just be nice to have it back, hetting FBods some attention again, but if i had my choice, i'd like a fresh design over a modern remake.

    I just lowered my car at LG Motorsports in Wylie TX... the guy there said
    that the TAs 5th gen will be LS2 engine, he heard 2008-2009 coming out,
    after the new camaros. I said that everybody speculates and he said that he has inside knowledge since his Pro shop has GM ex-employees and pals of pals inside GM.
    cool....! Gen 5th!..

    I think it looks too much like an old Vette ZR1 with some Wings West-style body panels. I have to say I'm not a fan of it.

    Love mine too... but still comes down to the ability to finally order a new "F-body" with what I want.

    Just got my latest issue of Poppular Hot Rodding magazine in the mail yesterday and the editors are betting that a 5th gen T/A is extremely likely in '09

    that would be cool. if the camaro is coming out, then it only makes sense to bring back the firebird...and of course the firebird will look cooler..lol.

    like I said guys/gals. I have 100% confirmation "word of mouth" from GM insiders that is the case late '08 early '09... TA 5th LS2 motor.... they also said they hope weight lighter 100+ lbs..

    like that song goes "I'm in love with a ...... TA" hehheheh

    You know...on most levels I agree with you completely. I kinda like the idea of having the last of the breed...on the other hand how great would it be to buy a brand new TA? I have always been more partial to the TA over the Camaro, although I love both. TA's always had better lines, more sexy curves, and far supperior interiors IMO. Actually you are on the money about the value of our cars. I routinely see 1998 verts go for more than I paid for mine 3 years ago. Makes me all warm and fuzzy.,..To bad all of these people realized too late how awesome TA's are. Mine was 1 of just under 1400 made in 1998. I really like that idea.
