    I can't understand why not get a 4th gen TA then do what you need to do from there. I also blame GM for being assholes and not stepping up and getting the camaro ready or providing a TA for them to use. After Transformers if the Camaro was ready they would sell like fucking hotcakes!!! If GM was smart they would of had a TA ready for for the new Knight Rider TV show and once again the public would buy TA's like hotcakes. Once again and inferior product with a better markerting strategy win...

    Fuck you GM!!!

    A vehicle you love should be driven on a Daily Basis! As We know, wear and tear of a vehicle is inevitable! Why not want the TA manufacture and available in the future when we need to replace our Daily Driver?

    Hands down that the 4th Generation Body style is one of the best looking designs that made it through the manufactures! As much as I'm interested in purchasing a 2010 Camaro, I still think my the 4th Gen is still quite competitive in external styling appeal!

    Future technology and engineering can only improve a vehicle manufacturing!

    Check this out..... the Tesla is 0-60 in 4 second and has only two gears. It can run for 200 plus mile on a charge... gas equivalency is 135 per gallon and does not kill the environment. It has an engine that gives off a curve Torque so strong that's unbelievable..... now, why would someone not want to see the TA resurrected with style and an engine producing 150 plus miles per gallon?

    Sorta related...

    There's a guy making refurbished 2nd Gens with current technological upgrades, and they are pretty sweet:



    If someone does this to a 4th gen 30 years from now, and I'm a rich old fart, I'm definitely buying one!!

    But yeah it will be up to us, the collectors and the shop owners to keep the Trans Am alive, because GM will be gone by then if they continue down their current path.

    I grew up on knight rider. In my mind nothing will justify using a mustang as the new Kitt. Why not something like this?

    It would still be a simple enough change up to the new camaro. No need to bring any pony cars in from left field.

    If they fabbed up some 5th gen TA to use for the show, that would be giving false hope to all the TA lovers that GM might produce the TA once again, which they won't.

    The more I keep seeing from the 5th gen Camaro, maybe GM shouldn't produce that either.

    The Camaro thing is just crazy to me. It almost seems like they leak photos out to get a positive/negative response. They don't know wtf they want to put on that car.

    On the up side, I just installed my new 370lbs torque guage...

    I feel you are right on this..... having a replica in 2006 tells us that they thought about in 2004 - 2005........... that's only after the 2002 model
