Coming out to Oshawa this weekend?
I think it is totally ridiculous that they would price the Camaro this high. I was amazed when I dropped into a Chev dealer last year in Maine. Without too much haggiling I was able to get the "ball park" number for a 2SS down to the 37 range. The taxes there are only 5% as well I think.
I won't be coming to the Nationals. I know I was spoiled that they were in St. Catharines for so many years. I went many years ago when they were held at the GM Plant and also at the Holiday Inn in Oshawa. I didn't like the set up at the Plant, it was just pavement and fences.
the Holiday Inn was a fiarly small show.
I am assuming that this will be a Gen 5 love fest put on by GM. With the prices this way I am not too excited about them any more.
I just think GM is gong to shoot themselves in the foot again. They were begging us to buy their cars two years ago. They have to realize that their taget market for these cars is not making big money any more.
