Motor Trend Brings a Camaro to a “Best Driver’s Car” Competition
Motor Trend has replaced its “best handling car” with a “best driver’s
car” competition. Is this an opening for the Camaro? Not so much. The
new SS model placed dead last in MT’s comparo, which was won by the
Porsche Cayman S. And if you think the Camaro was simply there to serve
muscle car whipping post duty, check out the rave reviews that the
Shelby GT500 picked up. On the other hand, the fastest car around Laguna
Seca, the Corvette ZR1, ended up in 6th place. There’s just no way to
hide the fact that “best driver’s car” will always be a subjective award.
What's wrong JimmyBoy? Couldn't find any better dirt on GM today? The
Camaro is hugely popular, can't be built quick enough to keep up with demand
(and that is at one of the highest rated car plants in the world), is
incredibly fuel efficient for such a powerful engine, and is a better
vehicle then anything you could ever dream of owning. You are getting
pretty sad there JimmyBoy. And, you can't even answer my questions anymore.
You have officially dropped to a 2 out of a possible 10 on the

Should a $90,000 car NOT be worth more $40,000 more than a $50,000 car, or
it be worth $20,000 than a $30,000 car?
I LOVE my new Camaro... and I don't give a crap what any of the
reviewer/magazines say! And I'm not a blind Chevy fanboy either
having owned my share of other sports cars....
Perhaps, but the fact is it costs 205 to 30% more to drive home a Jap
vehicle than a domestics if the same size and with the same equipment. you
can buy a Tundra if you chose, it's your money.
Far more buyer are choosing Ford and GM trucks however.
You live in a minority then HLS. Check out the stats. "Dave" is totally
right, Toyota can barley give them away. While Ford moved 215,959 F-Series
trucks, and GM moved 177,566 Silverado's, and 60,532 Sierra's (same truck),
and Dodge moved 112,239 Ram's, Toyota has moved a wimpy 42,419 death-trap
Tundra's. As for the Nissan Titan, they are doing even worse, with only
10,271. I'll give Toyota credit with some cars, but there trucks are
complete garbage, and most know that.
