Mid-Michigan Camaro Club awaits new version

source: abc12.com

MID MICHIGAN (WJRT) - (08/23/06)--General Motors Corp. recently announced the return of the legendary Chevrolet Camaro.

The revival of the name and the retro-look sports car that will bear it has those who've loved Camaros of the past barely able to contain themselves.

To members of the Mid-Michigan Camaro Club, the Camaro is king. So club members jumped at a chance to see some video of the Camaro that will go into production late in 2008.

The new Camaro will feature a small block V-8 with 400 horsepower. Members of the Mid-Michigan Camaro Club say that should get the job done.

Around the world, there are more than a thousand Camaro clubs and the new Camaro has everybody talking.

GM produced 4.8 million Camaros between 1967 and 2002. The next generation of the muscle car will be made in Oshawa, Ontario.

The price of the new Camaro hasn't been released, but it's expected to be competitive with the Ford Mustang. Camaro lovers are starting to put away some money for the big day.

Waiting two and a half years for the next Camaro to roll down the street is going to seem like forever for Camaro lovers. For more on Mid-Michigan Camaro Club, you can click here.

Uh, that's misleading... that's what the CONCEPT CAR has, not what the production version will have.

Well, in theory it could, but both the LS2 and the LS7 will be history by the time Camaro is produced.

They're both being replaced with something BETTER.

exactly producing the new camaro would make it the perfect time to introduce a new line of motors just because its the rebirth of the camaro doesnt mean that the ls motors have to return with it
