I know someone that's had quite a bit of wheel time with one of these and has stated that it's a "big pile of shit."

Outside of any 3 variations of the 'Vette, the only two GM vehicles worth a damn, with regard to performance, are the Cobalt SS and CTS-V.

I'd rather have a Challenger. I think it looks better than its competitors.

The SS is in need of a serious slam and some bigger wheels.

at sema (i think), they had a nwe camaro all black with red accents and red LED angel eyes. it looked killer. i tried to find the pic, but failed.

I like it, but the interior kills it.

GM' has quite a few models that are interesting this year.

Some people reallly arent american muscle fans here but its ok

The Cobalt SS is good and so is the CTS-V but id pick the Camaro SS over the Cobalt or any Ford(even tho I like the sound of the Cobras/Sheblys Superchargers) or Dodge ANY DAY..

Ive owned two GM vehicles and they both lasted me verrrry long and they had sum crazy power! And my best friend has a Vette thats a beast and another has a older SS and it woops cars butts. Plus you can never go wrong with a 400+hp V8 LS3 Engine Stock.. Imagine throwing a Supercharger! Aye talk bout a real beast

All of this is very true... but it's sad when they build such a nice looking and powerful car that's WAY too heavy and can't turn for crap - these are his issues with it.

LOL, I was talking about all go and not all show. As in, a performance drop, lightweight wheels and some sticky rubber. Guess the word "slam" was not the best choice of words.

The red angel eyes look great on that car, but I don't think they would be street legal as deep blue or deep red colors on the front of any vehicles are seen as illegal due to impersonating a police vehicle.

After this bailout BS I refuse to buy any big three product again regardless of how much I like it (which hasn't been an issue lately anyway).

I'll still consider Ford. They haven't taken any money -- yet.

After seeing the camaro in person at Detroit, I can tell you that it looks awesome. GM got it right. However, the interior (which I thought would be awesome due to it being a Holden vehicle) was a serious let-down for me. Good concept, poor execution. The materials were sub-par (even for GM) and the little gauge pod on the lower center stack (volt, water temp, etc.) looked like they were made by Fisher Price.

Its heavy, but its got a great motor and it is going to have very good handling for a big car. It will drive circles around Mustangs or Challengers as the suspension was tuned at the Nurburgring (just like the latest CTS and CTS-V). I have high hopes for this car and so did everyone at Detroit - I just hope its not too late.

Obviously it is shiny, but the body design is extremely severe and with the big wheels and bigger wheel wells it kind of reminds me of a 4x4.

I know I'm not supposed to say "god, it looked better back in the day" but seriously did they have to make it look like every other (ugly) American sports car?

I will say, however, that with the proper tuning an old f-body could handle amazingly well. If this thing lives up to its predecessor, it could be a well performing vehicle.

Just ugly.
