If it wasn't a Camaro, what other Chevy?

If you weren't buying a Camaro, what other Chevy has your interest?

For me, it's something that many people think to be very hideous.



87 Aerocoupe. Black with burgundy interior. Must have the white letter Eagle GT's. I'm not sure it gets anymore 80's than this.

G-bodies are cool...full frame & coil springs are good for drag racing.

But I've always been a big nova fan...I had a '68/396 but had to sell it because I was broke. I'd love to get another '68-'72 and drop an LSx/6spd in it.

New or old? New G8 ST and trailblazer SS Old let's see 69 Nova (had 2 69's a 70 and a 73 before), 96 Impala SS, 92 syclone, and 86 Monte Carlo SS. I didn't like the aero coupes but love the others.

have to agree with you there...if there was no 5th gen, I'd have to trade in my family-hauler Trailblazer LS for a TB-SS and I'd be happy.

Check out my TBSS in my FQuick garage. It may go up for sale if I am able to get the exact 5th gen I want. TBD...

Meanwhile, I can't afford a ZR1, so I may have to be content with my current stable of Chevrolet's.

If I'm sticking to just Chevy, the new cobalt SS (turbo, not the S/C) is a pretty solid deal. Sure its still a 4cyl and FWD but for the price its pretty much unmatched by anything else. Like others have said, I would get a G8 GT or the G8 "El Camino" if its ever offered with a 6 speed

What no votes for the obvious? A Corvette of course.

G8 GT for me. Only other car right now that piques my interest.

2010 Stock IBM 2SS/RS

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

If there wasn't a new Camaro coming, I would already own a G8 GT.
