Well, I just saw one today... 2010 Chevy Camaro, looks, well, interesting. As we all know many American cars are being remodeled to look like those classic cars (Mustangs, Challengers, Chargers, etc) but this Camaro looks very odd. At the same time, I thought it also looked stunning... Even though I can never see myself driving a muscle car (not because I don't like them), I still thought the car would be pretty cool to own. (MSRP starts at 23k)

Yes, they are huge, almost as big as a new Challenger and the tail end is almost as ugly as a 2010 Mustang.

I've seen a black one. Very nice! I'd take one over a Mustang or Challenger.

Until you see the 40K MSRP for a loaded 2SS and then get into the uber cheap interior... You can't even get Navigation on the Camaro.. at least the 2010 Mustang offers it now.

I drove an SS a few months back, and I thought the car was stunning in person. I was a little "meh" on the interior, but it's an impressive car for the money, and my favorite of the new pony cars (followed closely by the Mustang).

Not yet but dieing to. Got passed by one one night last week. It was too dark so couldn't make out anything other than what it was. There aren't any on any of the Chevy lots around here so I can't go drool...

The Mustang is just another Mustang. The Challenger is admittedly a good looking car and sounds great, but doesn't get the job done in the curves. The Camaro is striking and aggressive looking while having body lines that should make the other two blush. I also think the halos in the headlights look awesome. Camaro please...

A friend of mine that lives down the street from me bought a black SS without the pod option. Really nice looking in person but it's too quiet for a V-8 with the stock exhaust. I'd take it.

Camaro's eyes look very evil, in a good way. It seems to stare to to BMW's Angel Eyes.

The black Camaro pictured is a concept model which is why the halos are red. The production model is white like the BMWs. It really would look mean if there were a way to customize them and turn them different colors.

See above posts (for why the 'pony' cars exuded bench racing beyond the ordinary). Make mine Camaro.

Those light pipes (or Halos) are usually just an LED at the end of a tube. I'd bet that it's a pretty easy mod.

I've seen five new Camaros, but I wasn't impressed. Mainly because one of them was parked next to a white :)drool:) '09 CTS-V.

Generally I just don't like the pony cars. They're the definition of the stereotypical American car.

If I was in a position to buy a new car, I'd just shell out a little bit more money and get a base Corvette, which is a real sports car. Or I'd just wait till next year and buy an Audi RS5.
