Yeah, sorry, Eagle, but that'* just not the direction the car'* going in. It'* going in a new techno-retro (yes I made it up) direction, which means small projector headlights, chopped roof, raked back windshield and BIG RIMS!

It will have 20'* out back and likely 19'* in front. Brockville Motor sales already had 10 big ones of mine on the Down payment for the #1 car the order. so im getting a little info as it comes out

I have heard rumors of the SS coming with the 8L but who knows at this point. I don't really care as long as it is the biggest and its either Orange or black on black with orange stripes.

GM will not put a better motor in the Camaro than the Corvette, period. 8L lol...

it'll get a V6 (probably the same as the G and a V8 or two.

16" wheels can fit 11-12" rotors MAX from the factory behind them. Think of the 90'* bonneville brakes, undersized for the cars. You definetly need bigger going to a sportier car, 20 years after that design (fwd H body) And I doubt they'll be raked (20 and 19") on all models. MAYBE an SS will have raked wheels, but that'* a stretch.

Probably not. That takes up precious fuel tank/exhaust/trunk/rear seat space. That and they create a low underbody spot.
