oh boy...another one of these threads
geez, try and be a little optimistic.
if you want a camaro and are in the financial position to buy one, don't worry about all the other stuff. if you have good credit you'll get a loan. the credit industry will hopefully be in better shape by the spring...if it's worse, than no one will be selling any cars, not just GM.
we pretty much know the camaro will be a great car...compared to the other cars in it's "class", it's a lot of car for the money...it's basically a corvette with a back seat for the price of a mustang. the hope is that the general public will see that, and GM will learn from it's mistakes of the past.
its obvious that gas prices are going to bounce around a bit...but the current prices also tell us that the prices from the summer were just a "bubble" and it's burst. sure, maybe the prices will skyrocket again next summer...if it's that much of a worry for you, go buy a prius.
history will tell us that the economy will get better...it goes up, it goes down. most recessions don't last too long and are followed by good economic years. it's been posted before that the camaro's best sales years were during the '70's...when the economy and oil prices were also a mess...of coarse, things were different back then...but they sold A TON of camaro's.
OK dude...pick your head up...you have a camaro on order!
