I read about the Camaro in Road & Track magazine. Base model is supposed to start in the mid-20s and will go up to the high-30s with the 400 hp V8. The car looks pretty bad ass. They did a good good up dating the retro style. I particularly like the front head lights.

   As an irredeemable gearhead, I love the fact that Chevy, Ford and Dodge have found their way back to musclecars. Though it can be argued that Ford never left, as the Mustang has always remained in production. The Camaro has an available 400hp V8, the Doge Challenger can be had up to 425hp, and the Mustang thumps out 505hp in GT500 form, and if that's not enough, You can get a GT500KR good for 540hp. There is also another version of the GT500 called the Super Snake, with 605 or 725hp available. Corvettes start at 400hp and go up to 639hp, and the Viper offers 620hp. It's almost enough to make me wish I had a real job and would be willing to shell out the $$$ to put one in my garage. If gas mileage matters, then you probably should not be looking at one of these cars. Though to be fair, all but the top 'Vette and Viper are capable of pulling low to mid twenties on the highway, (if you're nice to the gas pedal) Insurance, on the other hand will eat you alive...

I had to laugh at the article I read yesterday where GM was emphasizing the "gas sipping" qualities of the new Camaro ::)  This car is sexy, as is the new Dodge Challenegr which I saw the other day, but give me a break.  When you look at how large they are, for so little interior space you realize how wasteful they are.  This is what got North American carmakers into the pickle they're in today.  They can't build a fast, fun car that's a whole lot smaller and more efficient.

I think muscle cars are a particularly American obsession. The goal in a successful muscle car is torque, speed and growl not interior space or fuel efficiency. You can't really talk about them in terms of practicality- it's like comparing a Harley Davidson with a Vespa. I'm not really a muscle car guy myself but definitely appreciate them. I've always been drawn to small, sporty, mid-engine cars which is why I've had a Fiat X19 and my current Toyota Mr2. I would love to have a Lotus Elise SC: under 2000 lbs, incredible handling, 0-60 in 4.4 seconds, wicked styling... and 26 mpg if that matters.

When we were kids, you couldn't see a new car before the opening of every dealership in the country.  We were a Corvette family with a 58, 60, & 62 and a totaled 63 in the barn.  I did have to fly out of state for a funeral once and rented a Camaro.  I had asked for a black IROC model and got a fairly fast white one instead.  This car was complete with a nice walnut rolling tray in the console.  ;D  Have the best day

There is no mention of the Australian exterior design in any of the linked promo article.

   Actually, the thought of trying to palm off the Camaro as a gas sipper IS pretty funnny. But there are American made cars that fit the criteria you put down here, The Saturn Sky Redline/ Pontiac Solstice GXP are great little cars with 260hp supercharged 4 bangers that can nail 30mpg, and are a blast to drive. Also, the PT Cruiser Turbo, and Chevy HHR SS are fun too. The late Dodge Neon SRT/4 was astoundingly fast. The problem is that up until less than a year ago, the market for such cars was minimal. I think that the fun/fast efficient category is going to become very crowded very soon.

I think muscle cars are a particularly American obsession. The goal in a successful muscle car is torque, speed and growl not interior space or fuel efficiency. You can't really talk about them in terms of practicality- it's like comparing a Harley Davidson with a Vespa. I'm not really a muscle car guy myself but definitely appreciate them.

Ford,
   I had an X1/9 for many years. You would never think that a car with only 75hp could be so fun. I would love to have another one someday. There is a student that drives a dark grey Exige (which is a hardtop Elise) to school every day. I love it. The only thing, is if you are over 5'8", have fun getting into it. I sat in one, and at 6'0" it was like being human origami, though I wouldn't mind at all for such a wicked little car
.
The only thing I can do straight is shoot..
