Saleen to get more involved with the new Camaro?

http://5thgencamaro.blogspot.com/200...-with-new.html

Reading the article below from WardsAuto.com - Saleen tuned Chevrolet Camaros may not be that far off. Since they had quite a bit to do with the 2009 Camaro in the upcoming Transformers Movie that may be a taste of things to come.

My guess is any involvement with Saleen rules out a resurgence in SLP involvement, which I find hard to accept knowing how tight Ed Hamburger & Co. are with GM.

I see room for both and more, auto companies are too greedy to limit it to one vendor IMO.

Wouldn't really suprise me, I've heard Roush is also interested in doing something with the car.

Can ya blame them though?

as long as the car performs well and doesnt break a tranny or rear end the first time down the track i dont care who puts performance parts on them. as long as they work.

well I am sure there will be many "tuner" cars out there but choosing the right one could be tricky!

yea. but im sure anyone who worked on the f-body's are highly recomended for this new camaro. or even who ever is recommended on the corvettes. sure you'll pay more for the better part but it's worth it in the long run.
