Here we can talk about the new camaro. That I pray we get to see. Anyways. I have been hearing that they were so posed to come out first quarter of next year. But when I look in my sunday paper I find this:



Local dealership trying to get people to come order their camaros today. Me and my dad already put our order in. But look at the year in the pic....:brickwall::brickwall:

Ah...you're just upset because you're hangin' with the underdog...even many Ford owners know it's better to swap in a Chevy engine...

Oh, and except for that brief period from the mid 80's to early 90's, Camaro owners have always left Mustang owners in their rear view mirrors...But we always come back to help y'all get back to the parts store to get you Frod running again! :D

I mean really...what kind of backwoods redneck would put a Ford engine into a Camaro...It never happened!

Oh I would drive the crap out of one of those.


The closest Ford has come to an attractive redesign of the Mustang was the Bullitt special edition Mustang. As far as modernized muscle cars go, Camaro and Challenger FTW.

Don't know about "city" mpg, but it can't be pretty. I'd guess somewhere in the 12-14 mpg range. At highway speeds however, 4 of the 8 cylinders "deactivate" and it goes from a V8 @ 400hp to a inline 4 cylinder pushing ~150hp and getting 30+ mpg. So for cruising the highway, it wouldn't be a bad ride.

But if you're buying a Camaro with fuel economy in mind...

Anybody know estimated fuel mileage?

My dad orders most of it. cuz he is paying for insurance on it. so it will mainly be his car. But I get to drive it too. We are getting the LS3 with the 6speed. Thats all I wanted. he get to pick the rest of it. He will make it like our 69 we had im sure. Which was golden with black stripes and custom everything. I cant wait to see it!!!!!!

That is only with the auto. And I dont think the use the LS3 to do that with. Not sure there. but I do know that is only with the auto. And if you buy a car like this with a auto tranny you dont belong in a camaro.
