    That is from a magazine I read (can't remember which one) they were toying around with the idea of bringing back our beloved 'Bird and what it would look like, based off of the new Camaro. It isn't for real....one could only wish...especially with the whole Bandit theme. That would be incredible.

    heres the deal..

    The camaro IS coming back- they've already made a driveable version that has appeared at the Detroit/LA auto shows- I saw it in LA... along with the Challenger concept.. which i don't know if that one was driveable...

    anyways... when they put out the camaro in 67 what happened..? shortly after in 69 the introduced the firebird and trans am-

    From what I hear, and what seems feasible(sp?) if the camaro sells like hot cakes which im sure it will as long as they dont fock the price up- the trans am will come sometime after that- I mean really, why wouldn't they - you know GM loves the trans am, if they didnt they wouldnt have made one in the first place.. GM may make some poor moves at times, but they always seem to come back with something sicker than before- Ford has a jump start with the retro styled stang, and the new shelby and cobra are some high HP machines.. but that camaro if they stay true to the plan, should be around 450 hp.. can you imagine.. thats a hell of a baseline if your gonna mod it..

    The Firebird was introduced in 67........ about 6 months behind the Camaro....... Trans Am came in 69...

    Yep, that Challenger concept was driveable, Hot Rod had a "road test" on it a few months back.

    No 07 or 08

    So far, everything I have read says that there are no plans to use the Camaro as a template for an upcoming TA. I think that is totally stupid, the hard engineering is already done.

    They also said the Camaro was dead for good five years ago. Things change, I think the firebird could come back.

    maybe not in 2009 but unless you're a GM exec, there really isn't any way you can say it won't be back.. maybe they won't, but if they are going to bring the camaro back, it seems a possiblity- you know- it could happen

    We could boycott GM until they bring it back



    But then we would all have to drive......I can't even bring myself to say it.

    you must mean a "mustang"

    Well, truth be told, I have owned both Chevy's,Pontiac's,Ford's And about everything else. Yes, I own a street/strip mustang(High 8's in 1/4) that will be going bye,bye to denmark in feb. I have always liked the 93 and up WS6 trans-am. My Future wife loves the new Camaro and I must say it is a pretty sweet deal If they can keep the damn price down. That is one reason that I probally will not be looking at a new shelby(crazy price).

    I like the new Camaro alot, the rear is killer, it's the front of the car that's just not doing it for me, they should follow Ford and Dodge's lead, if your gonna go retro...then go retro, the front just doesn't look 69' enough to me.

    They did that, I really don't think I would be able to resist, but I'm not givin up My T/A

    Oh and I was thinkin ricers...not Stangs in the above post...personally, I've got nuthin against Stangs at all. American muscle is American muscle.

    Think the new ones look totally bad ass, and you have to hand it to Ford for being wise enough to recognize and bring on the retro Stang, if they hadn't this thread wouldn't exist, and there would be no new Camaro, possible Firebird, or new Challenger for anyone to discuss.

    Now if the Camaro is a hit maybe they'll give the vette some sexy curves, ala retro.
    Photoshop that anyone???


    I know this is an LS1 forum but I have to ask...did anyone see that the Challenger is going to be available with 540HP HEMI with a high rise manifold topped off with a Holley 870cfm carb???

    I can't believe I've lived to see the revival of the muscle car wars...bring it!!!

    Absolutely, I think about it every...single...day...then I sorta get bummed we gotta wait so long, but then I think, hey, we want them to get it right. Right?

    I just don't want some political pussies somewhere screwin it up for us. Remember the whole reason they are able to give us this horsepower today is because the advances they've made in pollution control technology, have allowed them to get around the pollution control laws. But...dare I say it...if they made a law restricting horsepower or one which says a car must get a certain MPG...we'd all have to move to Germany.

    And believe me, I would be taking German language lessons.
    That would be the only thing uncle Sam could ever do to make me show 'em my tail lights, but show 'em I would.
