Op-Ed: What Are Mustang/Challenger Fans Saying About the 2016 Camaro?

Now that the 2016 Camaro is out of the bag, what’s next? Oh, that’s right, there’s still plenty of things for us to learn - like the date it will hit the streets. We’re also curious about the convertible, and the performance and limited-edition variants (think Transformers, Synergy, and Hot Wheels, among others), but we know Chevrolet has a lot planned for everyone's pleasure.

Despite the all-new exterior, plenty of non-enthusiasts and nay-sayers think the 2016 Camaro looks the same as before . . . despite not having seen it in person, no less. But haters are a-gonna hate, right? Camaro enthusiasts are best served to ignore the detractors and wait for a production Camaro sighting, then let the... [Read More]

Rate the New Camaro Styling on a Scale of 1 Through 10 Poll.

May 19, 2015 - 9:55 AM - by Z284ever
10 being cosmic ecstasy and 1 being utter and complete disappointment.




When the Mustang came out, I was on record for criticizing some aspects of it's styling. The big schnoz for example, was my biggest complaint. But in the Mustang, you can see 50+ years of it's own heritage. Not so in the new Camaro. It was slavishly restricted to conform within the confines of the 5th gen's lines. It's as if GM wants you to think that the Camaro first appeared in 2010 rather than 1967. Great proportions were traded for gimmicky surfacing. Elegance traded for busyness. GM copied the 5th gen - as we had expected - but they actually kicked it down a notch or two, delivering a much more conservative, much less ground breaking design. From certain angles it is downright awkward looking. Very disappointing.

I have to say that Ford delivered a much more effective design with the Mustang. I mean it's a Mustang. You can see elements of... [Read More]

OpEd Why no Firebird or Trans Am?

Why no Firebird or Trans Am?














Seriously....

Why no Firebird?

I can understand why no Firebird with the Gen5 Camaro because GM had closed down the Pontiac Division and rid itself of the Pontiac Dealer network. To suddenly announce a new "Pontiac Firebird by Buick" to be sold out of the Buick/GMC Dealer network would have been too... [Read More]

Why the 2016 Camaro Will Give the Mustang A Run for its Money
The truth, gossip, and conjecture leading up to this weekend's reveal



In several days, the 2016 Camaro will be revealed to the world at a special event at Detroit’s Belle Isle Park. As you know, this will be the sixth generation of the Chevrolet pony car, but the Camaro is much bigger than that - it’s among the world’s most loved models.

But so is the Mustang. Redone to much global fanfare, the 2015 Mustang upped the ante in the Pony-Car Wars 17 months ago, but now it’s Chevrolet’s turn. Mark Reuss, the current prez of General Motors North America, recently told Fox... [Read More]
