news flash camaro rs tail lights will have a darker appearance

MAN am I bored with the new Chevrolet Camaro. GM's drip-feed PR campaign– ahead of the retro-modern muscle car's delayed, spring '09 launch– has been interminable. At this point, what else is there to say about the car? Except next! I mean, GMNext. Am I the only person who visits this website? My gardener's blog gets more comments. But I could be wrong; Camaro Product Manager John Fitzpatrick claims "The response [to an online chat] was overwhelming — we were typing as fast as we could and still couldn’t get to about 100 of your questions." It looks like John's a hunt-and-peck kinda guy; he's chosen just 13 Q's and A'ed them in a terse/cut-and-paste style. We learn the info above (which we already knew from the PR snaps) and the fact that the Camaro "has a specific life-cycle plan" (score one for planned obsolescence!). It will accommodate golf clubs. Yes, but how many sets? Damn! The suspense is killing me.

    When you have no new ideas, the best thing to do is to recycle old ideas. When you have no new ideas, the best thing to do is to recycle old ideas. Ask J. Mays.

    The Spring ‘09 launch date for this thing is pretty good as far as the timing goes….I still have to grow the back of my hair out a few more inches before I can attain the proper Camaro owner look. Plus, I have to get the guys at the vinyl shop to make me a “Loosing is not an option” sticker for the back window. I don’t recall having seen any photos of the undercarriage yet. I need to know what the underside of the car looks like before I run down to Pep Boys to pick up a chromed diff cover and some traction bars…maybe replace those stock wheels with some nice chromed Cragar S/S’s ….and get a coupla rolls of blackout tint for the windows…..and one of those big-assed Autometer tachs with the shift light on it. You forgot to add a vinyl roof as well.

    OnStar sucks even if it were free. I also don't like the idea of being tracked by GPS. If I crashed into a ditch, I would prefer to die there instead of having the OnStar

    I like the "angry" curve of the tail lights; goes with the "angry" look of the front. OK, Maybe not "angry", but "constipated".
