Not as big of an ouch as you think.
I agree. I was walking with my girlfriend through Target today looking for a gift for my niece for her birthday and we walked by a bunch of those scale die-cast metal model cars in the toy section. They had one for the Camaro and the label said 2006 Camaro Concept. It occurred to me right then: it's been that long already? If the production Camaro sticks mostly to the concept, which it appears it will, I think there's a real risk that it will run into the very same problem that many have accused the 2005+ Mustang of having: styling with a short shelf-life. You never know though. Maybe GM has something up their sleeve already and the new Camaro, as a 2010+ model (right?), is scheduled for a refresh in 2012. However, to speculate such things is next to irrelevant though since we know the Mustang is due for a complete redesign by then, not to mention whatever Dodge might be up to with the Challenger.sorry Camaro fans but I keep saying that GM should refresh the camaro before it hits the market
I was a very early adopter of the internet, and associated with a rather geeky crowd in my younger days, hence my knowledge of such things.:clap:
We disagree often you and I, but this is too funny and too true!
As I said before, we disagree often you and I. I think the new Camaro is a sign that GM does indeed have a clue. As a Ford fan, you must be gratified to see GM take a similar tack on the Camaro in deciding to emmulate the '67 as Ford did with the Mustang.I
However, I feel GM has no idea why the Camaro and Firebird failed to begin with, and do not understand why the Mustang has been a success. Therefore, they are walking right down the same path that ruined them to begin with. They think they can just mix a Mustang with a Corvette, and they'll get a winner. They listen to the F-Body enthusiasts who want a big car, big power, and macho style. Sure, they'll love the Camaro for all the reasons they hate the Mustang, but the reasons they hate the Mustang is why 100,000 non-enthusiasts buy Mustangs every year.
