they're fast, but i've driven faster. i think someone on here said that the autos dyno at like 325rwhp and the six speeds dyno at 360/380rwhp? they're definitely nice cars, though.

There was a bone stock 6 speed V8 model at the race track when I was there. He ran 14.2 most of the day, then got it down to 14.0, then finally when it cooled off later on in the day it went a 13.8. Not really "that" impressive. But who knows how well he could drive it..

Nice cars, but not much faster than the 4th gen f-bodies.

Of course there are uglier cars out there. I just think that Chevy dropped the ball with them. The C6 Corvette is a beautiful car, the Camaro just looks disproportioned. It's just something about it that doesn't look right, that and the interior looks like dog ****.

i think they look decent but the fact theyre barely, if at all, faster than an ls1 f-body is pathetic

Yeah their nice but performance wise not so great I beat a full exhaust, intake and on nitto's with no problem! I'd go for a corvette instead of paying 42k for a camaro.

They are ok. One of my coworkers got an SS. To me, it looks kinda boring from the side. The rear has nothing going on. I got to drive it. Its cool and all, but i still felt a bit dissappointed. Also, the car is waaaay too quiet. It sounds quiet when it starts, quiet idle, quiet when you get on it.

Saw a '10 at the track last week running 13.0's stock at 111mph.

I personally like them, and think Chevy hit the nail on the head with it. Although I still prefer a 2011 Mustang GT :D!

I actually like the body. I'm a fan of the retro look that all the muscle cars are adopting. While i like the body, i'm unimpressed performance wise. They're unnecessarily heavy and relatively slow given the amount of power that they produce. Given the choice, I'd save up an extra 10k and go with a better looking, better performing vette, but then again who wouldn't?

What bugs me the most is how fascinated people are by them. Like i previously mentioned, i've joined the masses in praising the body work, but i see the car for what it is. The worst part to me are their interiors, they look cheap to say the very least. The instrument clusters look like a cheap plastic. I'd say that this was a result of rushing production, but we saw a prototype nearly 3 years before the actual release so that cant be the case. Chevy should have paid more attention to the details.

The more I learn about the 4th-gen F-body (especially the LS1 cars) the more I'm impressed by them. Everything I want to do to my car is STOCK on the Camaro.

However, with the 5th gens, it's exactly the opposite. I like the styling, and it's a fantastic motor, but nothing else seems to be that great. The only thing I think it has over the S197 is the motor.

In my mind you can never be too loud. Unfortunately not everyone feels the same way you and I do. Some of these old farts want the quite and comfort of a new car and are more than satisfied with stock performance. That's why the aftermarket was invented. For sick individuals like us!
