I love my 2004 even if it only has a LS1 engine. I drives beautifully and kicks butt and takes names at traffic lights. I had a 1965 GTO as my first new car back in 65 and I can guarantee this one stops better is quicker and faster and gets better mileage, The 65 is much better looking though.

I loved the '67 for looks. Got to be one of the best looking cars ever. And the 400 ci., 4 bbl was a great engine. A friend related that his father modified their '67's engine by mounting the intake manifold and 6-pack from a '66 on it. Made awesome power. The 389 and 400 were exactly the same engine. Pontiac bored the 389 out to 400 and put the 4 bbl carb on it to comply with the GM edict of no more multiple carb cars.
All that being said, I love my 2005 GTO. Great power and good handling and acceleration. Very comfortable to drive or ride in. I traded my '97 Firebird convertible for the Goat. I miss the ragtop, but am really happy I made the trade.

the only thing that kept me from buying a new Goat was the lack of a convertible model. GM still has no clue how to sell the GTO and they probably never will know. Even the revised Camaro is a turkey from what I saw of the concept car. Maybe it would work if they hired some people from Ford that know how to build a decent fun car.

Not sure it would have been easy to create a Monaro/GTO on the Holden Commodore platform. Body rigidity is too low, a roof is needed for strength. Even the Monaro/GTO is only a "kinda" coupe, real coupes have no B pillars, and back windows that roll down.
I have seen pic of the new Camaro, the body seems OK, but all that orange glowing plastic inside does not. Guess I would have to see the finished product to tell.
This car may well make it into production, would love to see these on the road. A proper sporty 6 instead of a FWD shopping trolly with a turbo bolted on as an afterthought & "GT stripes" could really go places.

IMO, the new Camaro is a horrible looking monstrosity. Maybe it will look better in real life.

After reading this, I checked out the Chevy sight, and they have a god-awful Flash animation page with pictures so close you can't even tell what the hell the new Camaro looks like....so I have no opinion. GW
