Hmmm...who's being sensitive now? [img]tongue.gif[/img]
No big deal, and no need to take it personally. Its just that us Camaro guys have an issue with statements like:
"I think Chevy saw that solution and started putting them in Camaros too. I quess that today these little known canisters with weights and springs stand as a tribute to the superiority of Firebird over Camaro!"
Puhleeeeeeeze! What a load of Baloney!
I think Firebird owners who write such drivel are just a little envious of the fact that without the Camaro, there would not have been a Firebird. (And this from a site that, by inference, purports to be some sort of authority?) The Camaro was first, cocktail shakers and all, and then was given to Pontiac by GM so that they could have a cool pony car too!. Then they put their own spin to the cosmetics, engines and suspension. I think of the Firebird as sort of an upscale Camaro...you know, a Camaro for older guys!
(And by that, I mean that the older guys had a bit more money to spend on their cars, the Firebird being a Pontiac, a bit more refined and expensive.)
Personally, I like Pontiacs as well as Chevys. I also own a GTO, and I love the 400 motor! And I AM an older guy! But, I gotta call it when I see it.
Nothing personal, no big deal, and I'm glad you did post. I feel you were trying to contribute in a very positive and constructive way. It will help those that are researching, and as such, it is appreciated. So relax...
