Sorry, but this is gonna be long :type: ... I think right now Chevy is heading in the right direction in just about every division. They have their economy cars with the malibu and aveo, family type car with the Impala, doing better than average with the SUV trailblazer, doing great with the silverados and colarados and great as always with the sports car Vette. Then they have a decent front wheeled drive performance car with the Monte SS. Whats one area they are lagging or should i say have no car really to speak of? A performance RWD V-8. Ever since the camaro left Chevy hasn't even attempted to replace it with anything. As soon as that last Camaro left the assembly line, the Monte SS should have been the next car to carry that RWD performance torch, but Chevy dropped the ball, BIG TIME! right now the Monte SS should be a RWD powered with an LS1 and whoopin the butt of the Mustang. There is so much damn marketablitly with the MOnte because of its NASCAR history that Chevy is stupid to wait so long to put out a RWD Monte. so many times you would hear "rwd in 2004", "rwd in 2005", and now i'm hearing "rwd in 2008".
I'm beginning to think that Chevy's Sedan and Coupe division is 100% fuel economy. Chevy shpuld go back with what worked for them back in the 60's and early 70's...power. The Mustang GT has 260 horse and gets almost 20 GPM in the city and how many of those do you see on the streets, alot. I think that Bob Lutz and the crew has to finally pull their heads out of their asses and put out an reasonably priced rwd performance car before its too late and you see more Mustangs out there, and don't forget about the hemi powered lineup that chysler is coming out with. hopefully Chevy will get the idea before 2008 :plasma:
