I'm a GM guy through and through but I pray GM changes a few things about that car. One being those huge rims

the rims are always big in a concept version.
won't happen with stock. 17-18 tops.

It is still in concept stage they said so I'm sure they'll be some changes before the projected 09 debut

I think the concept camaro kicks ***. My only problem with the appearence is the bulky, clashing gold color chevy bowtie. That whole chevy bowtie thing has got to go.

Somebody should photoshop a mesh grill on that bad boy.

I like the look. Maybe in a different color like that nice Deep cranberry that GPX just had done or somethin. The rear end though looks like a redisgned vette'* rear end

Camaro and firebird = sisters
There will be no new Firebird in the foreseeable future. And, it will not be based on the Camaro platform.

That car just makes me sick to look at. I'm with GXP....there'* nothing I like about the "new" muscle cars. What a cop-out way to design an automobile--resort BACK to the design of previous models.

It'* no wonder GM and Ford are loosing ground to the competition.

Well, the new Mustang is a hit... And, you gotta admit, they picked a good era to style the new car from...

But, the new Challenger... THAT'* what the charger should have been. 2 door, reallly cool body lines, etc... Not this mild-mish-mosh of, well, damn great performance, and kinda modern aint-a-charger styling.

This thing definately looks better than the new Camaro...



It just says "I'm gonna roast yer whiney, ricey, import as......*..."

I like the new Camaro too, some say GM can't get it right, I say you can't ever please everyone.

Base model Chargers are dogs because they only have the 3.5, even my N/A SE schools them. Now the SRT/8......OH MY GOD the things I would do with that.
