If General Motors weathers the financial storm, its Chevy division should begin delivering thousands of new Camaros next spring.

While some model intros are facing delays, GM, so far, is sticking with its plan to send 2010 Camaros to buyers in the first quarter of 2009.

"The wait is almost over," vows Ed Peper, GM North America vice president for Chevrolet. "The return of the Camaro gives sports car enthusiasts a reason to rejoice."

A little rejoicing would be nice. There's been so little of that in the automotive industry this year. Party hats were quickly doffed after GM celebrated its centennial, perhaps because some employees recalled that the venerable Oldsmobile brand vanished shortly after its 100th anniversary.

Frankly, an America without GM seems as inconceivable as a country without Coca-Cola. The ad slogans are embedded in our folklore: the "heartbeat of America." Unfortunately, they used that jingle to sell duds like the 1987 Corsica.

For the Baby Boom generation, it's doubtful that any model is more memorable than Camaro. Chevrolet's 1967 answer to the Ford Mustang confirmed that "pony cars" were here to stay.

Now that Dodge has its Challenger on the street, it is imperative that the new Camaro be allowed to come out and play.

Camaro might not single-handedly save GM, but it will win hearts and minds. More than 600,000 prospects have requested information on the Camaro since production was announced, Chevy says.

Introducing the car on a television show called "My Own Worst Enemy" may have revealed more about GM's self-image than the Camaro, but it's hard to avoid Freudian slippage when your stock has lost 90 percent of its value and you're asking the federal government to keep your engine running.

well put!! I am a GM employee, fairly new, but sill a GM employee. I feel strongly about this company, and a brands, I have always had Camaros, or Chevy trucks, I just know the ins and outs. I can not see this country with out GM or any of the Big 3, If GM goes then that would be the worst sign of things to come.....but I believe that the die hards and some of the new will keep GM alive, and with Camaro coming back, it just might give a kick start with the Traverse and up coming Volt. GM isn't dumb, they know what needs to be done, so we might see some of our favorite brands or cars go, but as well already know, death isn't the case, Camaro came back! So for those who are in the know, and know people who are looking into cars, lead them in the right direction. Cause when you by American it stays mostly here. But be smart about buying, that is what go people in trouble last time!:patriot:

as a life long chevy fan I am sick thinking that it may not be here or any gm products. I cant see myself bying and driving a foreign make or a ford. I was thinking last night that with gas around here in my part of texas down to $1.75 maybe some gm trucks will start being bought again. Maybe that will help a little.

I gotta think GM needs the Camaro more than the Trailblazer, LaCross, or Outlook. Kill off those boring rides and put some excitement in the showroom.

I know it may not be a popular option among GM enthusiasts, but wouldn't getting rid of GMC trucks save quite a bit of money? I mean seriously, all they are is a Chevy truck with a better-looking grille (IMO). Is there really a need for the two different brands? Just a thought. Still, I am glad to see that Camaro production is pushing forward....can't wait!!!

I would be funny to see two people arguing over whether a Silverado is better than a Sierra.
