Whoa. I mean, way-hey! It seems like just a thousand years ago that GM started hyping their retro-styled rear wheel-drive Chevrolet coupe. And now, at least a week before GM scarfs another “bridge loan” and a good month before the company files for Chapter 11, one of our valued contacts has sent us these dealer prep sheets (PDF) for the new 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. Thank God GM Car Czar Bob Lutz is still alive to see this day.

    "i predict upwards of 50 grand. and who in their right mind is gonna pay that for a company thats damn near chapter 11?" Even wo chapter 11 (which is where they should be) one could get an '05 M3 with plenty of warranty for $35K; So why buy a tasteless POS GM? I've been in enough GM rentals (as well as an C6 Vette) to know these cars are full of interior gaps, plastic and enough glue vapors when warm to get you almost high.

    ponchoman49: [Objecting to characterizations of American cars as POS's] "... VW ... VW ... VW ... VW..." If Detroit's benchmarking against VW, then I think I see Detroit's problem. ponchoman49, I don't suppose you've noticed that VW's US sales remain rather lower than Toyota's? There's a reason for that.

    I’d keep the GTI. I had an ‘83 with 250K on the clock when I sold it, and I have an ‘87 Scirocco 16V with 180K which runs great. To do that in some POS American car it would take at least 4 valve jobs and a few trannies.... Thank you for you unbiased input. With such a large sample size of 2 vehicles, you must be right.

    "f Detroit’s benchmarking against VW, then I think I see Detroit’s problem." Actually Detroit's problem is overpaid derelict UAW workers, job banks, retire in place jobs, pensions, ugly ass cars, redneck trucks. . The list goes on. Moreover, what happened to the pricing? It used to be American's new their cars were crap and priced them accordingly, and now you see $50K trucks.
