I see what you're saying. I guess this car is aimed at a weird segment in general. They aren't looking to move very many of these, just to make a completely gonzo car. I wouldn't want to replace the brakes on it either ;) When you slot this car in above the gt500 and below the viper it kind of makes sense, but again a… Read more
This really is a head-scratcher, especially if they're looking to price this more than the ZL1. I mean, at that high of a price point, I'm not sure that anyone other than diehard Camaro guys are going to want it. Maybe they'll fetch a ton of money at Barrett Jackson someday.

The design requirements for aircraft parts and a dump truck are totally different. That's like comparing parts from an F1 car to your toaster. Then getting pissed at the toaster.
My father's brand-new Blue Bird school bus has them as well. He told me that they're cheaper to work on, and like you said, they did the job better.
You bring the drama, not the men. You know you create it and you know you love it. Most of the younger guys haven't figured out that ignoring you is the far better method of dealing with your shit. But they will.
Jalopnik, I'm sorry but what the hell did I just read? This article seems to be trying to preach a gender-neutral position to "approaching girls" when it comes to cars, but at the same time it plays to every single guy, dude-bro and girly-girl stereotype. Why does it have to be a "impression" thing? I don't get it- at… Read more
Finally got into my old account. Posting there.
