Don't hold your breath for that...
For what? The camaro unveiling or the bird coming back. I'm skeptical as to either happening. GM has the most severe case of rectal cranial inversion I've ever seen right now.

Exactly why I'm NOT happy with GM. I can understand the reasoning, but the camaro and firebird have ALWAYS been together. It's just not going to be right.

Not technically correct... the bird came 2 years later... hence why 97 was the 30th anniv for the Camaro and 99 was the 30th for the Bird... so they haven't ALWAYS... LOL :poke:

THe two guys above me hit the nail on the head. Firebird in 67, Trans Am in 69. That's why the disparity exists between the anniversary years of the F-Body cars.

Chevy Camaro Concept Slated for '06 Detroit Show, '09 Debut
Date Posted 08-04-2005

DETROIT ? Chevrolet plans to take the wraps off a concept Camaro at the 2006 Detroit auto show in January.

Also, Inside Line has learned the automaker is evaluating proposals to revive the classic performance-car nameplate in 2009-2010 on a new low-cost rear-wheel-drive platform.

Among the scenarios under discussion inside General Motors is the development of a lower-cost version of the Sigma rear-drive platform that underpins the Cadillac CTS and STS sedans. Another proposal would take the new rear-drive platform that's being developed in Australia for the next-generation Holden Commodore sedan and spin off a low-cost variant for North America.

GM planners are said to have targeted several body styles for the Chevy and Pontiac brands on a new rear-drive platform, including a sport sedan, a sporty coupe and a convertible. The Camaro and GTO badges could be used on those vehicles, according to company sources.

Across town, Chrysler is said to be preparing a concept Dodge Challenger for the '06 Detroit show, to test the market for a proposed two-door performance car it wants to introduce around 2008-2009 as a potential competitor to the Ford Mustang.

What this means to you: Guess it was just a matter of time and environmental awareness ? the original definition of muscle cars doesn't fit well with new perceptions of what's best for the world...could there be a "green" muscle car in our future?

That and I think GM does want to make an effort not to keep duplicating cars. If there's a Camaro, why compete with yourself with the Bird. It will then allow them to keep the GTO as an upper class M-series type car.

Although I wish they just dropped the Camaro instead and kept the Bird. :D

What the heck did they type that has anything to do with enviromental awareness? Did the author not even read his own article?

Thats the equivilant of me typing. "Red and green are really big colors this season. So what that means to you is that the mfgs have finally taken notice how blue is the new color of the future."

That's called the stupid liberal "activist" media.....I swear they can never resist an opportunity to inject their belief system into any article, whether it be something about 30 year mortgages or a car review......
