Mr.

5th Gen Will be at NAIAS 2006

99 posts in this topic

ran into an old friend this weekend

This friend works for GM

This friend is "claying" the 5th generation Camaro concept for the 2006 NAIAS right now

I tried to get info from this friend but was unsuccessful

I emailed this friend a picture of what is said to be 85% accurate and received a very bitter phone call in response referencing the kind of trouble this friend would have been in if they were to have opened the attachment at work

The picture I emailed can be found here. The very first picture at the top.

they design it in clay first silly.... just because he's a new member does not mean he has to be lying. Like they say even Ted Kennedy has has a valid point about once a decade. :ph34r: Edited by Sixty8panther

Who says that besides you? Seriously, stop bringing up Ted Kennedy all the time.

Anyway, everything is conjecture until the press days.

*rolls eyes*

Yet another "Camaro is coming" thread.

Right.

Show me the realness.

Show me the Camaro lines.

Show me the RWD.

Show me the V8.

Show me that very car IN MY DRIVEWAY, ready for a testdrive.

Then I'll believe and talk new Camaro is here.....

I have no idea who this guy is but the Camaro will be in Detroit unless something changes between now and then like chapter 11. Fbodfather has confirmed the plan and he is one in the know! The plan is to premire it like the Z06 at a private party preceding the show. Besides I thought GM and most companies have given up on clay? I also would think they would be doing assembley work at this time? Only the Solstice was started this late for the NAAS. Edited by hyperv6

Don't believe it... About as believable as me getting that damn Civic.

Or as me getting that sweet Mini Cooper that some bitch bought out from under me while I was trying to find an insurance company who wouldn't rape me.

One thing I've learned in this business is to never dismiss any rumor.

except that this type of rumor has the potential of costing me a plane ticket and hotel to get to the NAIAS! :blink:

I live in Mass. some of us in this Socialist state actauly DIDN'T vote for Ted Kennedy believe it or not. It's a famous line I've read not only locally but in magazines like Newsweek & Time, so yes people do crack jookes along those lines... And FYI: I bring up Ted Kennedy a lot less often than you bring up how you hate old school BOF vehicles (esp. Panther cars) and how old people drive them in Florida and clog up your roads.

Nothing wrong wiht a little local humor. :) Edited by Sixty8panther

I hear that in order to keep costs down, GM is only putting an Ecotec in it for the first three years, with a supercharged option appearing as part of a MCE. Also, it will be retro and therefore only have a 3-spd transmission. Automatic only.

I can tell you already that its ugly. Not enough chrome. Also, needs a 2-stroke diesel version known as the Camaro Club Sport. Also, the rear sunshades on the next Camaro will need to be better. So. They don't. Break. Too often. Anyway, coupes are dead. Its 2006, not 1976.
