I heard that the F-body will not pass 2003 crash test regulations ( mainly side impact, only 1 side impact beams). I also heard that the Camaro will return in 2004 or 2005 when GM introduces its new rear wheel drive platform that the Camaro will share with several other cars. The Firebirds fate is not as clear, it says in the same article that the Firebird will probably not came back. As for why Mustangs outsell Camaros, the answer is simple. The Camaro is an uncompramised performance car, it has limited room in it, and it cost more. It doesn't apeal that much to the non performance people, and has limiter to no resemblence of the original cars that we all love. Whereas the mustang has room, handles more like a Buick than the Camaro, and has good looks that everyone likes. The Camaro will return, they are keeping it quiet so every one will rush out to buy the 35th.
