ok i have something to say about this. i had a 1969 chevy camaro yes it was very over priced but i did not have a single fault anywhere with the car it was awesome. i see you got one as well? also when you say gto do you mean this?Kingy,
I agree with you on the "need" part of the new Camaro. However, I think I'll wait a year or two (till the kinks are worked out) and then go back to The MidWest, where it is much cheaper, to buy my car. The only sad thing about that Camaro is that they're going to overprice it AGAIN, which is why it died in the first place. Ditto for that last GTO. They just don't get it at GM.
By the way, what is that car that you have? I can't figure it out!
Confederate, apparently you haven't seen my car. It's a Camaro. It's the honoary Italian-American driving machine. If you grew up in South Philly, Brooklyn, Jersey, Cleveland, Youngstown, OH, or one of those Pennsylvania type places and you're a guido...you've owned AT LEAST one!What, no Italian cars to match your Italian bikes. You fellows ought to be ashamed.

my only hope is they bring it out as a rhd for australia and we actually get it here.Kingy,
Again, I agree about the Camaro. I love those cars. I have had mine now for over 8 years and can't see letting it go. However, GM WILL overprice the new one as usual.
When the new GTO-or Holden Manaro as it's known outside the US-was released, one of the car mags was shocked at the pricetag and actually did a comparison study with the original 64 Tempest with GTO option. Pricewise, the car should have been released here in the states at around $25k, relevelant to inflation. They released it at $34k...and the car sales died after the initial hooplah. Furthermore, one could be purchased in 2006 during its last year of production for about $27k. With the discounts and 0% financing, it was a fair price for sure.
I ask, then, what do you think will happen to the Camaro when they overprice it as well? Once the initial wave of "crazy" goes down, it will stall-especially with the cost of gas skyrocketing past $5 a gallon.
Alas, GM just doesn't get it. Wait a year or two and you'll get the car cheapy cheapy.
yeah its a nice ute but if i ever have a kid ill either have to sell it or buy a new house and a new car to fit it in the garage (i like that idea)Kingy, from Oz I take it by the pic of the Ute you have... very nice looking indeed, wish they'd sell them here in the US.
Car? I don't have a car anymore, just the Duc. Wife has an 04' Caddy Escalade she lets me cage around in when I absolutely positively cannot ride the bike.
yeah the thing will be a beast i mean the z28 that thing would be the ultimate track car and daily driver:devilsmokKingy, I'm sure they'll have a RHD version. If you check ou this month's edition of R&T, they mention that Holden is greatly responsible for the car's development as it's derived from their Zeta platform. Also, the answer to the engine question is solved there, too. The SS version will have the LS3 6.2L and they expect it to push about 400HP. A year later, there are plans to introduce the Z28 Model with a supercharged 6.2L sibling to the ZR1's motor the LS9. They're calling it the LSA. You're looking at 480-500HP. They're also thinking of changing the intro motor to a turbo 4 banger found in the HHR SS. Again, this is all according to Road and Track.
ok i can kinda get wer your coming from. but then you contradict yourself and say you like mopars??? it is a good thing to have cars like the new camaro, vette, viper, charger, challenger and mustangs to give real enthusiests something for the next generation.Baaaahhh! The new camaro, vette, viper, charger, challenger, mustangs are all P.O.S. North America never made a real sports car IMO. They can't handle worth a shit, they don't brake worth a shit, and they do nothing but guzzel gas. Put anyone of those pieces of shit on a track next to a real car (German, British, Italian, or Japanese) and they would all get there asses kicked. The only real sports car that was ever made in north America was the GT40. Other then that they Al suck. A sports car is suppose to handle, brake, and accelerate good. Not just accelerate and go in a straight line. And any of you should know your selves that if you put an M3 or a skyline GTR on a race track next to any of those new cars they would get licked pretty good. Sorry if I have offended anyone I just can't stand the no replacement for displacement line, or that simple minded "my car has a bigger engine" line. That's crap. And nascar is not real racing. Nascar sucks! Thanks for your time to read my venting. I had a shitty night at work lol. And for the record I am in to late 60s early 70s mopars.
Hey, I'm the first that would hate to say anything bad about a ChevyConfederate, apparently you haven't seen my car. It's a Camaro. It's the honoary Italian-American driving machine. If you grew up in South Philly, Brooklyn, Jersey, Cleveland, Youngstown, OH, or one of those Pennsylvania type places and you're a guido...you've owned AT LEAST one!
I can say that I've always wanted a nice Alfa Spider, though.
PS-what does IROC stand for? Italian Retards Out Cruisin'. And yes, I'm a Paesano so I can say all this laughingly at myself!
