GM revives Chevrolet Camaro muscle car

I meant to get to this after the announcement became official last week:  GM will make a new version -- retro of course -- of the Camaro. It will be built in Canada.

Camaro fans can thank Ford's updated and hot selling retro Mustang for the production green light. Like the Mustang, the base version will be a 6 cylinder engine, with a high output V8 as an option. In the past, GM has used a detuned LT1 Vette engine in the Z28 Camaros, an I would expect a similar set of choices this time also.

The big question will be how true to the concept car the actual prodcution vehicle will be:

7748

This car is mean! I am 24 and loved the camaro as a kid in the mid 80's. Now that chevy has chosen to bring it back I have to take advantage of it now. I don't want to be 40 with kids imagining what it would of been like to own a dream car in my prime. I just want to walk into the garage and remember the days.

Wow... I'm sorry but this car really kind of comes across as sad to me... It's like a copy of a new Mustang... why can't Chevy be original and come up with it's own style? I can't wait for the 2009 Italian Designed Giugiaro Mustang Concept!!! I'm sure this camaro is a nice car... I just wish Chevy could come up with it's own look... this car doesn't favor any camaro I've ever seen!!

the mustang sucks butt
it has always sucked butt
its a crappy car. its a crappy design
except for maybe the boss 302 or the gt500
