Well, I've been keeping abreast of the happenings-on at GM since the bankruptcy, and it sounds like they're taking baby steps in the right direction. That obviously is a good thing, I don't know why it couldn't be done sooner, but better late than never, I suppose. I could point to GM's plan of refreshing the Camaro in 2014 as something that gives me a little hope that they're in it to stay.
But now I'm conflicted. I'm starting to believe in GM again, and I've been going to the local Chevy dealerships, sitting in the Camaros in the showroom, and the interior is growing on me. The blind spot at the C-pillars must be designed to kill people (the backup assist that I keep hearing about should be standard equipment), the steering wheel needs work (the 2010 Mustang's steering wheel is better), and it really, really needs a proper nav system, but the seats are nice, the controls are well-laid out, and the stereo sounds good. I'd give it a
But here's the thing. I might have the job and the funds to buy a new car next year, and next year, Ford's going to offer a Mustang their new 5.0-liter "Coyote" motor that should pump out about 400 horsepower. Combine that with the Mustang's lower curb weight, and it should go toe-to-toe with the Camaro. Competition is good, I guess, but I'm going back and forth now. Mustang, Camaro, Mustang, Camaro... which one? I know that you guys are biased towards the Bow Tie Brigade, but I'd like a little guidance.
In the meantime, one of my most anticipated video games, Forza Motorsport 3, is going to have the 2010 Camaro, so I can fiddle around with a virtual version of the car while I reach for my goals...
