Gotta weigh in here just because I like the Camaro...but I think it's just a bit over the top on the bad boy styling. I think Mustang nailed it. I like a car with personality, but I don't always want to be driving something that screams - hey! I'm a bad a$$. I'm glad the Camaro's back - Just wish it wasn't such a caricature of it's old self.

I saw one(actually 2) at a World of Wheels show not too long ago for the first time. I must say, I liked it. Liked it much better up close and personal than I did when I just saw pictures. One was an SS and the other, I believe, said supercharged.

I think it's pretty sweet but i'm not a fan of the interior at all. The outside is seriously sexy and the inside is seriously ugly and boring. I guess I'd drive one. The woman wants me to trade the goat on one but that is NEVER going to happen! I'm kind of thinking the goat could be a retirement package like the old road runners and super bees. You guys might think i'm crazy but I'm sure when the super bees were new their owners never imagined what they would be worth today! I guess we'll wait and see. I'm only 26 so who knows what these will be worth when I'm ready to retire.

I think the Camaro's rear-end is the ugliest thing I've seen in awhile. The front is pretty sweet and the interior is what I expected. I think it's just to flashy and just overwhelmed, I honestlty don't think it looks like a fun car to drive. I personally think as far as looks go the new Challenger nailed it. It's what the bad guy drives. Just my 2 cents though.

I love the new Camaro. I'm not going to buy one, and would rather have any Z06, new or old, but happy Chevy put somthing out there. The GTO is dead. It's the Camaro or Mustang if you want a new sports car. or the tanky Challenger..

Burning rubber since 1982!!
My photobucket, lots of dif car pics.

Comparative weight aside, Camaro looks like a tank. Or some kind of fighting vehicle. Perhaps a pill box on wheels. Regardless of what the critics say about the GTO's "dated sheetmetal", of all the current 'muscle cars', it's the only one with a sleek design. The GTO looks as it slides down the road; the others appear to have to push their way.

I agree with alot of this. Camaro front and side looks really good. I don't like the rear of it though. Interior is very nice, I think even more comfrtable then the GTO to be honest, but the small ass windshield and lack of fuctional rear seats made me sad. Drove exactly as I expected when I was looking to possibly trade the GTO for one... but then the price tag and markup missed me off. They used my tax money to stay in business adn had the nerve to mark it up. F' GM lol

I hate the Challenger... it is just ugly. I like the Charger much better even though its 4 door.

Mustang I love the looks of, only downfall is you see too many of them, but this will be the same with the new Camaro as well... I'd rock a Roush or Saleen anyday though.
