I wouldn't count on a new camaro any time soon. GM is doing terribly in this department. I could see killing off the camaro OR the firebird/trans am, but not both.
To counteract that they introduce the GTO, never driven one personally. It may have the power, but looks like a family car... pass!
They also brought out that stupid SSR car/truck thing (and I like car/trucks). Could have been really cool (but ugly) if it had been everything they hyped it up to be, but with no power and a rediculous price tag, can we say FLOP! I've only ever seen one driving and a local dealership is slowly piling up with them.
The corvette is the corvette. I don't think there's ever been a "bad" one per say, but they're not cheap. And I can't stand the vette purists... "It's not a chevy, it's a corvette!" sorry guys, it's a chevy, deal with it!
The mustang is the best bang for the buck out of the big 3 imo. $27k would have gotten me a basically fully loaded Mustang GT. I would own it right now if Ford's sales team wasn't a bunch of idiots, but hey, I'm more than happy to continue driving my 18 year old t-bird. Only issues that car's ever given me were rust issues, but I live in New England and it has to be expected.
Option B was a Mazda RX8. I would have one of those right now if I wasn't moving, they were gonna meet the price of the stang, but losing my well paying job with my move prevented me from buying that when I blew up the motor in my daily driver.
