    Concept camaro

    Some of you know I'm a gearhead. Love my old classic cars. I don't care too much for the style of new cars, they all kinda look like a jelly bean to me....everything is round.

    Ford came out a few years ago with it's Retro-Mustang. Looks like a 67-68 Mustang to me. Dodge last year made a prototype Challenger that was real sweet. I hope they bring that to fruition. Now Cheverolet introduced it's Concept Camaro at Detroits auto show.

    I know things must change and I gotta deal with roundness in cars by todays designs....but I sure like the retro-cars. Here is the Camaro which has the looks of the most sought after muscle car Chevy made, the 1969 Camaro.

    I like it!....but I ain't given up my '69 Chevelle SS.

    Definitely keep the SS! I like some of the new stuff, but not enough to get one. My next vehicle will be a pickup.

    Steve, why not get one as a "spare"? Few more cabinet jobs....

    I too, like all the "old style" cars that have been coming out. I would have to say, the Mustang is still my favorite, though.

    Nope it sure ain't...but at least it isn't round. Don, did ya notice all the concept cars have that look (like a cartoon., as you say) The Chevy SSR pickup did too.

    Some toy manufacturer had a line called Muscle Machines (niece got me a couple of the 69 Chevelle toys) and the prototypes look like those toys.

    As I said....I'm keepin my old grocery getter

    Ugly, that's my opinion of te Camero. The Mustang is OK, never really been a fan of Ford products. The Challenger looks great, hopefully DCX builds it.

    Nice Chevelle Steve. Maybe we should start a thread on old cars.

    Steve..........I wished I had my old '64 SS Impala convertible! Unfortunately for me and the car.....I sold it to a friend when I went into the Navy......4 months or so later....drunk.....he decided to move a new Caddy with it.....the Caddy was parked .........the '64 got totaled.......I don't know if I"m getting old but the new cars just don't seem to have the "soul" the 60's cars did.....the Muscle car era......those cars had a flavor of their own....I never like the Dodges in those days......I used to race the 318's and quite often my 327 would give'm a run for their money.......but ...you know....those Dodges had character.....That from a Chevy man. The cars from that era were indeed special!

    I had a 67 Chevy Impala convertible, loved that old car, handled very poorly, but that little 283 and the 2 speed gearbox were nice on the highway, just poke along at about 60 mph all day

    What a great car for a road trip in the summer time

    I'll have to find a pic of it and scan it for you guys, it was a sweet fun summer car!

    Not too much thrills me in the way of 4 wheeled cages now a days.....
