Wander if chevy will make the doors heavy as hell like they have done in the past. I remember my 1985 I-ROC doors were heavy as hell. and for that matter so was my 1972 ss nova. So I wander if chevy will take care of that problme.:homer::homer:

My 98 has fiberglass doors. I am also wondering if the new camaro will have fiberglass or metal doors, also if it will have metal fenders instead of urathane. I am hoping they keep things the same as 4th gen on that part.

The number one concern will be for safety, as the rules have changed drastically recently. Hopefully, though, they will consider weight savings over the entire car after that, but as you all know, the more weight you save, the more it costs.

Those doors are not fiberglass, they are some version of plastic :D

Things break down and wear out. Hinges can be replaced.
The less things that need to be replaced, and are better from the beginning, the better. That said, if you have all the best things in the beginning, then you have a really expensive car. Just don't sit on your door when it's open (like normal people), and you'll be ok. :)

LOL they sure felt like fiberglass when I hole sawed the inner door panel and all the dust covered me and was all in my hair. I hurt for over a week. It felt like I was being poked all over. It was hard to sleep.:D

From everything I've heard about the GTO, I hope it is used as a benchmark in a lot of places. In my opinion, if the GTO had more aggressive styling, and more engine power/options, and a little better side-to-side handling, would've been a whole different marketing story. It might have even been in my garage.
