Default What do you want to see in the new Camaro

I want to see 16 inch wheels, a whole lot of engine and tranny options, measuring the size in cucib inches, and emblems similar to how they were in '69

Uhh, I was thinking more along the lines of 20s... In gunmetal grey... ooo that'd be hawt.
Engines:
3.6 VVT
430 hp LS3
and MAYBE a bored out LS3 for the SS??

6 speed manual better be readily available
6 speed auto would be a great option, with tap-shift

A simplistic interior with the bare essentials: No navigation system, no heated seats or anything like that. Pure functionality. Though, a nice bose stereo would be great too

Going fast only in a straight line is over. You wont see any performance car with 16" rims.

You're one of the few, then, better hope it uses the same bolt pattern as something older, F-Bodies or something.

It'* gotta have big ol' brakes, the kind that probably won't fit inside 16" wheels.
