Considering how many of you guys are crying for a Camaro revival, I thought it'd be interesting to see who actually would buy one. ;)

I swear I'll buy one. I'm already planning on it. I have a few more things to put on my car and then I'm just saving money. I'm hoping to have a REAL nice down-payment on a 2010 (which is hoping they come out in 2009).

If it's not too retro (or looks awesome if it is) then I'd consider buying one. I don't want a Mustang knock-off and I don't want it as retro as the Mustang. If the interior is crap like the Mustang's then I probably won't buy it either.

I dont think it will sell good if it is made as retro as the mustang to compete as it cuz everyone would say o well they just copying ford, thats why someppl dont like the HHR cuz the think they copied chrysler but does it really matter i mean car makers make all sorts of cars in different classes to compete with each other but that isnt considered copying

Honestly, I dont even miss it, the only reason I want it back is so people will stop bitching. Camaro guys are, in my experience, all talk where Mustang guys typically back the talk up by buying the car, so I'm sure that if the Camaro were to go on sale tomorrow, have a standard V8 and start at $18,995, we'd hear a lot of people saying, "I want one, I cant wait until my car is payed off" yadda yadda yadda and the numbers will be pretty low until GM drops it again.

If a Camaro somehow gets us Buick and Pontiac products, yes. If GM thinks a Camaro somehow makes up for a lack of real flagship products in those divisions (my guess), then to hell with it.

Ok i have to agree with Satty if i wanted one i would have to wait for one of my Chevy's leases to end, i also probaly wouldnt be able to get one with the way gas is going so i guess u could say i would like gm to have it, maybe my wife wont miss her Cobalt if i trade it in

Well, put it to you this way.. If the Camaro doesn't come out or if it sucks, I'm buying a Challenger. However, think about it. A Camaro can't be cheap if it's the only car on its platform. Obviously there'll be Buick, Pontiac, and other Chevrolet models off of the platform.

The Camaro is great and everythign and I would love to see it come back...I lvoe the camaro, but personally I wouldn't buy one...not as my primary car anyways...unless of course it had the right styling and all around performance...I mean, I know it would kill in straight line and top speed, but it needs to handle well and drive well also as a daily driver...it needs to have a nice, atleast somewhat high quality, comfortable interior and needs to leave the driver not feeling like it is lacking in any specific area...Basically, just a toned down vette I guess...something that is obviously a bit heavier and bulkier, more brutish...though something that can still come with power plants that in some cases may even exceed the vette's...obviously a camaro would never have the performance characteristics of a vette, but that doesn't mean it can't have some 450 hp engine in one of the upper trims and maybe even an engine exceeding 500hp and then some in the higher trims, with gearing ratios that would put a vette to shame on the drag strip...it just needs to be an all out muscle car...but a car that fits within today's day and age...so basically, the tires shouldn't screech when turning a corner at normal driving speeds...we all know the vette is the best sports car around...the blue devil will probably be one of the fastest cars to ever hit the streets, but the vette is mroe refined than a camaro...the camaro should be big, brutish and have a ton of power...you need to hear it a mile away...you need to pretty much be able to pull up next to any car in the camaro, floor it, and lay waste to whatever was next to you...even if it is a vette (well, maybe a base vette...maybe the top camaro can match the Z06 in acceleration)...

lol...that's not necessarily true...well...maybe a little...well, I don't know...right now if BMW made a camaro it would probably be ugly...actually, I guess you could consider the 6er as BMW's camaro, in which case, that is a sick car and in M6 form I am sure it will kick total ass...but honestly, the only cars I like from BMW are mostly older cars...I like the current 6 series, but I really like the older 6 series, I like the 8 series, I like the e38 7 series, the e39 5 series (duh) and the e46 3 series... But don't get me wrong, I would buy a camaro I guess...just not at this point in time, and I as far as camaros go at this point, I dont really know what to expect from GM...I mean, who knows...I was seriously considering a GTO before I made the decision to go with a 540 6-speed... I am just goin based on what I need right now...Bimmers are penis extenders and that is a known fact...I need a Bimmer :P

Well, no, I wouldn't buy it. If a Firebird came with it, I might consider the 'Bird if I could afford it. If a Fiero came out... I'd sell everything in, and including, my life if it would get me it. Never going to happen unless GM sells Pontiac... GM hates Fieros. That's why they cancelled them for the Vette. Bastards.

Perhaps, depends on the look of the car. Also, I'd need to trade the 67 SS to even get a chance at having enough for a down payment, so thats a big commitment. Guess we'll wait and see.

I'd definitely get one. The Cobalt should be paid off by then, and I'd like to add to the stable if finances allow. Nick, a new Camaro would be at least as good as the current GTO in terms of handling. Depending on what platform underpins it, it could be even lighter and more athletic.

If I ever find out which three people voted "I don't even want it back." I'll kick their virtual buts! <_<

No, bring it back, but as this: FWD, 4-cylinder tuned for overrated horsepower and NO torque, 4-speed automatic only, 4-door sedan, engineered by Daewoo and turns out to be a rebadged Optra. :lol: I think that would be worse than not bringing it back. Edited by ToniCipriani

If it looks overly retro (like the mustang) then NO WAY, I dont want one...... if its NOT retro, and still has a corvette eng/tran (hopefully with a solid axle) then I would buy a Z28 in an instant right now...... In fact I would buy two (wife wants one also).... stupid GM, I still can't believe we've been witout a Camaro for 3 years now.... Hopefully GM will redeem itself by making an affordable mustang beater soon.... stupid stupid GM...

Technically four years. The car year is already beginning for '06. http://www.cheersandgears.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/AH-HA_wink.gif

Not only would I get one, but my girlfriend would love ditching her 02 mustang gt for a new Camaro and my little bro would'nt mind having one either. Even my gf's brother, who is into Fords but has a 9 second Buick GN, is all over the artist renderings of a new Camaro. Besides people who want one, my Porsche loving/driving friend realizes that Chevy NEEDS a Camaro and that it would be awesome to have it back!
