New Camaro for '08.....?

Was at Barrett/Jackson this year and in walking around finally found the GM booth or tent. Went in hoping to find and get a look at the new Camaro concept car but was disapointed to not find it. So in talking with the representive GM had sent out to answer questions they said they only bring the Camaro concept to the big shows? I ofcourse looked puzzled after hearing this and responded with "isn't this the biggest auto auction in the country"? 300K people come here over the course of the week? So the rep. opens a colored 3x5" picture book and hands me that with a picture of the Camaro right in the middle fold area and says "here you go, now you can say you saw it"! I then asked when will it be available to the public and the response was sometime in the first quarter of '09....... I have to say I wasn't impressed, Ford on the other hand had a heck of a display with atleast a dozen different Mustangs on racks stacked up like cord wood and Mopar had the new Challenger and even a Cuda concept car that if you like the Challenger I think the Cuda even looks better. Why can't GM get with the program instead of getting left behind-very frustrating to say the least......

Re: New Camaro for '08.....?

When i was at the Car Craft nats last summer GM had a great display including the camaro. The GM people on hand didn't seem too bright/ helpful, but it was cool to see.

i agree. it looked better in person than it does in pictures- except for those way-too-big-and-extremely-ugly wheels. but i couldn't help but notice that the builders got a little lazy when it came to the side windows- the door window and the little window right behind the door were one solid piece of glass, with a line etched and painted black where the two pieces were supposed to be separate. yeah, i know- it's just a show car- but any other builder in the country with a lot smaller budget would have made them two separate pieces, so why not GM?

Re: New Camaro for '08.....?

I believe that Ford is a major sponsor of the B.J. are they not?

That may expalin the reduced interest by GM, although that is no excuse in my opinion.

Maybe with the new fuel economy rules coming into play the GM team has to rethink a few of the Camaro details? Just picking at straws here....

Talking Re: New Camaro for '08.....?

I too was dissapointed a few weeks ago. I went to the World of Wheels show in Atlanta, which was advertised for months to have the Concept Camaro there. I went and not only was not too impressed with the cars that were there, but the Concept Camaro was not there. Very dissapointing when they advertise it and it's not there. I don't know if this was Chevy's fault or the organizers, either way. I was not happy.

I know that alot of people have their opinions on the new Camaro, but I don't think it's all that bad and just wanted to see it for myself in person.

Mike
