Didn't like it at first, it looks better with the black wheels and graphics though. Ton of work in it

Not until they Give me the Drivetrain! (an LS3 one anyway) other than that I agree. I am trying hard to like these, cause I want a 2 door V8 RWD car I can be proud to own, but I jsut can't it is a fail on everything but the running gear.

The new camaro is a Screamer though. My Buddy rented one for when he flew to Dallas for Impala SS nationals This year. It was an L99 Auto car, but look at those times:
Name:  DSC_0632.jpg
Views: 5
Size:  48.4 KB
Name:  DSC_0620.jpg
Views: 3
Size:  50.6 KB

that and he had major tire spin at the line, he said a set of slicks and he would have been a lot better. This is a rental car for pete's sake!

Too bad it is ugly.

That .068 reaction time has little to do with the car, more so the driver. But the top end numbers don't lie!

As for the bagged Camaro...in my book, it is a fail. Props on hard work, but just doesn't look right.

I prefer it in stock format. Lowered isn't bad, but that is too low.

I know how hard it was to cu tmy headliner for my OHC. I would cry if it was my car and they started hacking it apart like that. But it does look damn good.

Car looks 1000X better than the 2010 Mustangs! I like the 2005-2009 but the new ones look like total ***.

I would take the SS over the GT500 in a heartbeat!

nice work but it looks ugly!. i work at the dealership and you be amazed at how big of a pos those cars are. im a painter and have seen dozens of them already inside and out. completely torn apart too. able to get a good look at the work and build of this car and it blows my mind that gm can get away with that stuff. this care as a whole was rushed out the door from gm. not pleased with it at all.
im not biased either, its just not impressive after all the hype that came with the car.


i do how ever love the headlights!
