Quite possibly. Several of their models have been focused around US models. Got any pic's?

Thanks. You're right, there are similarities between them.

but at the other end I have a 92 toytoa pickup that makes a 05 tacoma look like a fullsize... Dodge did the same thing with the dakota

yes...

My pick is a 1967 Shelby Cobra. Mmm, but i can only dream of such glory. So much power, so little weight, a deadly combination that sounds familar arround here.

Those pics of the cameros are from Popular Hot Rodding magazine. A teenager who is really good at graphic design made them and sent them in to the magazine. They did a small story on it, and had him make his idea for the new Dodge Charger. So those pics aren't from anybody inside GM or anything to do with GM.

like he said, those are NOT photoshop chops of the new mustangs, those were created in softimage XSI, those are 3d models textured and rendered in natural light

he should have done the charger, new one looks like CRAP

Sideways can sympathize with me on this one, but i'm tired of car companies trying to make their cars more "modern" i think ford is the only company right now with any sense(and i hate fords, so thats saying something)

FYI- did any of you know that the new charger was designed by the creator of DUB magazine? yep, some japanese/hungarian kid who thinks hes black. car looks like it too

on another note, it looks like a clone of the 300c, why do maufacturers always have to make their cars look THE SAME within all of their branches and subsidiaries?

the same bodyshell is common to 5 companies sometimes
---------------------------------------------------------
Subject change
---------------------------------------------------------
it's quite a list
1.Challenger
2.Cuda (same car, different tail-lights
3.charger
4.impala(though some may dispute it muscely-ness)
5.Camino
6.Camaro(pony)
7.mustang(pony)

now all of these, save the new mustang are either discontinued, or have been ruined and transformed into some kind of pimpmobile

the camino, Cuda, and challenger were discontinued before they could be screwed up, however, all the rest got "modernized" into their current forms(most of which are horrible, and look nothing like the cars of 'yore)

Here in the US the RWD family car has been very rare, but it is coming back.

Currently there are:

Cadillac CTS (6 or 8 cyl)
Cadillac STS (6 or 8 cyl) - Sigma platform
Lincoln LS (6 or 8 cyl) - shares platform with Ford Thunderbird & Jaguar S-series somewhat
Lincoln Town Car (8 cyl) - Panther platform
Ford Crown Victoria (8 cyl) - Panther platform
Mercury Grand Marquis (8 cyl) - Panther platform
Chrysler 300 (6 or 8 cyl) - shared with Dodge Charger
Dodge Charger (6 or 8 cyl) - shared with Chrysler 300

Rumours are that the Chevy Impala, Chevy Monte Carlo, Pontiac Grand Prix and Buick ? with convert to the Zeta platform (if GM can get it going....) along with the Pontiac GTO and Chevy Camaro ('08/'09).

alright- to those who say muscle cars can't handle

I must disagree- My 74 challenger handles better than most modern non-performance cars

And to make the frame stiffer, just find some tube steel and a welder
