....chrome chrome, and when you think you've got enough chrome... More chrome!
Mike Hawk Feb 24, 2011
IROC special edition...jersey shore style. Total douche package with ed hardy/affliction paint job, the whole nine! Bring back the "Italian Retard Out Cruising"
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2011
Jerrod weight can be lost in other places other than t tops. Since I own an F body I know where it can be lost and it's completely practical
Jonathan Newcastle Feb 23, 2011
How about a version that weighs less than the transport truck that delivers it? Ditto for the Challenger.
Jerrod Swenson Feb 23, 2011
Patrick, how can safety glass be lighter than .25 inch of steel? Even if you drive with them off the buffeting will negate the weight.
Joseph Flieder Feb 23, 2011
@luis... yeah great idea cause they are worth just slightly more than a quater
Isaias Almanza Feb 23, 2011
West coast customs built Rascal Flatts a red Camaro with t-tops and a twin spool supercharger.
Luis Lujan Feb 23, 2011
@Tom: If you're going to hand out Grammar lessons, don't fail in yours. You don't start sentences with 'and'. As for the Camaros, maybe it'll be cool. Mustangs should do like the state quarters: one for each state.
Andy Rogers Feb 23, 2011
Are they really special by then?
Tom Franquelli Feb 23, 2011
Learn to structure a sentence, buddy. Haha. And I agree, a t-top would kick ass.
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2011
Well put some freakin t tops on them!!! And make them weigh less!!!
Kyle Noland Feb 25, 2011
Moms got one, Blue with silver racing stripes...Sexy car!
Grant McHendry Feb 24, 2011
@ Morgan I would love If My dad worked their!! Everybody in my family think I'm wierd cause how much I talk bout cars an I'm done with arguin I'm being pathetic
Morgan Dame Feb 24, 2011
@ grant yeah I've always known a lot about cars my dad loves them and so do I and I know a lot about em cuz my dad works for BMW Mercedes Benz and volvo
Morgan Dame Feb 24, 2011
Diesles don't need spark plugs cuz diesel fuel combusts under high pressure
Isaias Almanza Feb 23, 2011
Of course you can find out from a book. My point is some of these kids can't even be bothered to read the related article let alone a book on ICE design fundamentals.
John Frum Feb 23, 2011
@Isaias. Reading a simple book or Internet article can teach you this information. I've know why diesels don't need spark plugs since about age 11. It's called a book. Kids, unless you REALLY know what you're talking about, don't say it.
Diego Pasotti Feb 23, 2011
Out there "Mr. European cars are the best"
Diego Pasotti Feb 23, 2011
@ Joseph The Camaro was the official car of and used in the International Race of Champions starting in 1975 and lasting for 12 years until 1989. It was the first American car of the series succeeding the Porsche Carrera RSR...... Just putting it
Isaias Almanza Feb 23, 2011
:). I don't mind the kids if they stick to what they know. You like or dislike the way a car looks? Fine. Just don't go on about why diesel is better than gas or vice-versa if you don't even know why diesels don't need spark plugs.
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2011
I don't mind younger people having this app as long as they are semi relevant. But it bugs when they say somethin about the cars like how it drives or how fast is it when they can't even drive in the first place. It's ok Grant. Just be open minded
Grant McHendry Feb 23, 2011
Same here Morgan except I'm twelve lol
Morgan Dame Feb 23, 2011
Ok Im 13 and yes u don't drive but I know a lot about cars...A LOT
Grant McHendry Feb 23, 2011
It just bothers me how much arguin there is! Like most people don't even give a reason why they think a car stinks they just say that a car sucks cause they don't like it! That's all I'm saying! I'm sorry for wastin your guys time but I lov cars also
Grant McHendry Feb 23, 2011
Dude I'm really bot arguin with you but the only reason I get on this thing is to read about cars but I also like to look at the comments and I get to see the opinions! Usually I get a whole lot out of the opinions!
John Frum Feb 23, 2011
I find the amount of children on this app amusing. Go to school, get a nice car, then you can argue about cars. No, I am not a child. I have a job and my M3.
Grant McHendry Feb 23, 2011
Oh and don't treat me like I'm three
Grant McHendry Feb 23, 2011
Dude because I love Cara and when u say I don't know anything about them I mean the motors! And I readthe commentsto see if I can learn anything new so hop off this disscussion!
Ryan Wagner Feb 23, 2011
Why are you reading the comments then grant? Get over yourself youngster and go get the spongebob app while the bigger kids talk about cars. Thanks.
Grant McHendry Feb 23, 2011
Yeah I admit patrick I don't really know ANYTHING about motors or anything! And no I can't drive yet I've still got 4 years and your rite no valid points are Made all the arguments on this forum start with someone stating their opinion!
Grant McHendry Feb 23, 2011
Their is NOTHING. wrong with that! If you don't like someones opinion just ignore it! Sorry to start alot of drama but that's how I see anybody with me on this one??!!
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2011
I'm 22 and I get tired of it. But only cause no valid points are made and half the kids have NO idea of what they are talking about ESPECIALLY when they can't even drive yet
Grant McHendry Feb 23, 2011
I could really care less and I'm 12 got much to say?? Yo are young men. So thanks all I'm saying is that is annoying! Just stop! K? Thanks!
Jerrod Swenson Feb 23, 2011
The camera is on the edge of design and form
Grant McHendry Feb 23, 2011
Wow it's kinda pathetic how a bunch of grown men sit on here and argue with each other over an app! Seriously!
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2011
Yeah Brady but you're still driving a ricer
Joseph Flieder Feb 23, 2011
quite arguing everyone knows the europeans make the best cars
Brady Fereday Feb 23, 2011
Oh K.P your and idiot you do relies that the motor in this car is made in Mexico so I would rather drive a so called ricer where all the parts are made in the same country and the company has not gone bankrupt just throwing that out there :)

Richard, this kid's daddy probably owns a GM dealership. It's no wonder he's such a bigoted fanboy. But yeah, you're right as always... the GT3 (even the RS) is a flat 6. Another great sportster, but hardly a supercar.
Dennis Rech Feb 24, 2011
I will always love Corvettes for three reasons. First is the heritage they represent. Second is that they are an achievable sports car. A guy doesn't need to win the lotto to own one. Finally, it's visceral. You become one with the car, not like GTR
Dennis Rech Feb 24, 2011
The Z06 set a lap record at Nurburg only to have the GTR beat it a short time later. Then the ZR1 beat the GTR only to have the Viper ACR beat it. One has to figure though that the ACR is really a strict race car and a lousy daily driver
Mike Hawk Feb 24, 2011
That's a great point Patrick. The z06 is a great sports car. It should be respected as such and not over played or exaggerated to be a "supercar".
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2011
I love the Z06s. One of the best bang for your buck cars on the planet with still tons of potential to make it even faster than it already is. Plus the 427 is one of the baddest engines ever made
John Frum Feb 23, 2011
Hmmm I like the Z06, but hate most American cars. Not a huge fan of Vette looks, but they're fine.
Dennis Rech Feb 23, 2011
Kristoff, there are loads of Ferrari and Lambo owners that would have fits hearing you call a Corvette a supercar! I love Corvettes and have owned 4 of them but I believe they are considered GT cars. New ZR1 closest thing yet though.
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2011
I'm with Travis. I have said before that GM needs to make a Special Edition TA. Those things would sell like crazy
Travis Marinelli Feb 23, 2011
I think they should make a Trans-Am version of the Camaro. Give it the Pontiac front logo and black it out and give it the good ol gold pin striping and firebird on the hood! Throw in a supercharger or turbo and no chrome. I'd buy that, no a doubt
Dennis Rech Feb 23, 2011
The ZL-1 option doubled the price of either of the cars making them damn expensive. Guess that hasn't changed. :)
Dennis Rech Feb 23, 2011
The 1969 ZL-1 camaro was the 2nd fastest car chevy built at the time. That same year they built the ZL-1 corvette which were faster. There were just over 60 people who took the ZL-1 option camaro but only 2 for the vette.
Andy Rogers Feb 23, 2011
All that you really need for a Transformers Camaro is the right color scheme and a custom front bumper No to that
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2011
I dunno how I feel about a "Transformers" edition Camaro. Kinda taints the name if you ask me
Kevin Watson Feb 23, 2011
I tell you right now, that transformer badge will be ripped off by vandals.
Nick Manning Feb 23, 2011
Every kids dream a transformers edition camaro
Betty Escorcia Feb 23, 2011
This is the special edition transformers Camaro from last year, hope they make this years better =P
Grant McHendry Feb 23, 2011
Umm not like bumblebee! Yeah same colors but has got no body kit!
Andy Rogers Feb 23, 2011
Always loved the Camaro in yellow
Tom Franquelli Feb 23, 2011
My girlfriend would love this. Is that a compliment? Hmm. Haha
Mike Thomson Mar 11, 2011
Chevy ss strips don't go on the roof
Patrick Schalk Mar 06, 2011
I'm sorry to hear that Bill. That's just terrible. You should try talkin some sense into him. Yeah I have driven an SRT8 too and they are amazing. The last true muscle car if you ask me. It doesn't need tons of bells and whistles to be fun
Bill Gray Mar 01, 2011
Back to the car in this article....my bro-in-law has one of these and he put lambo doors on it, (almost got sick) for why I don't know. I have not driven one of these but I did drive my buddys new challenger SRT8 and it was awesome.
Mike Hawk Feb 25, 2011
Right on! And no offense to anyone, but I'm not big on the wrangler x. I'm no expert, but instinctively I have this purist feeling that wranglers should be 2 doors. Again, it's just my gut feel
Patrick Schalk Feb 24, 2011
Wranglers have the horrible gas mileage and some power and ruggedness of a truck. But doesn't have the cargo or passenger room, or as much towing capacity of a truck. Kind of a weird medium. But I love em. I'm lookin at getting a 01-04 Sahara or Rubi
Patrick Schalk Feb 24, 2011
Out of something if it had enough traction. I'm just saying they aren't really meant to haul really heavy stuff. I know they can pull a small trailer around. But my fiances dad has a brand new Rubi and my bro in law has an 02 Sahara.
Patrick Schalk Feb 24, 2011
No I understand that they can pull stuff out of mud, ice, etc. But that's not really the same thing as towing. Jeeps don't really have the suspension or torque to tow say as much as a truck. They are tough vehicles but a ranger could pull somethin
Mike Hawk Feb 24, 2011
This ought to change you're mind a bit on the wrangler, patrick. My friend and I (in his '04 sahara edition) pulled an H2 out of a ditch. Granted the H2 had the winch, but we did the pulling.
Diego Pasotti Feb 24, 2011
It's funny how this article is talking about the Chevrolet Camaro and people here bring up Asians & European cars. (so stupid)
Phil Hefenieder Feb 24, 2011
The reason that stuff is so much more expensive here is because of unions
Phil Hefenieder Feb 24, 2011
@ John actually am sad to say but vdub is the biggest car company in the world
Isaias Almanza Feb 24, 2011
North American Honda automobiles are made in the US by American Honda Corporation.
Stephen Ishard Feb 23, 2011
I've never seen a Honda outlast a ford and they are cheaper because they pay workers less
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2011
They are straight utilitarian vehicles and are mostly used as toys.
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2011
But the Jeeps are one of the most impractical cars around They can't really tow anything, little to no cargo room, little passenger room, don't drive very nice, and are very basic amenities wise. But they continue to be extremely popular and lovable.
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2011
Because it's a Jeep. It still has the styling and looks from WW2. Or in my case the F body Maro and Firebird. They get awesome hwy mpgs, are extremely reliable, and fun as hell to drive. But it depends on what the person is in the market for
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2011
Eh I disagree on the looks and performance part. I mean it all depends on what the person is in the market for. Take the Jeep Wrangler for example. The older one had the bulletproof 4.0L inline 6 and get horrible gas mileage but people still get it
John Frum Feb 23, 2011
And SOME American cars. Not most of them.
John Frum Feb 23, 2011
Oh and '70s MBZ diesels. Bulletproof motors there. Honestly, for most the population, cost and reliability are selling points, not looks or performance.
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2011
Eh I could go either way. Hondas and such are very reliable but I also know of 70s Chevys, Fords, and Dodges still on the road and running fine.
John Frum Feb 23, 2011
No, but they do things better. Do American cars sell as well? Are they as reliable? Are they as cheap? They don't always break the mold with new technology, but they do automobiles better than Americans. Not in performance, but in business.
Isaias Almanza Feb 23, 2011
Haha.. This Kristoff kid is hilarious. Asians made the Apple device in your hand genius. Seems like you can't seem to put that down.
Michael Phan Feb 23, 2011
Lol, dude can't even spell Asian right. Sorry to break it to you buddy but chances are, you're using something made by Asians. And no, I'm not a ricer, but comparing a Camero to an SI is retarded.
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2011
It's a piece of crap Asian car with a huge muffler, annoying sound, 8 foot spoiler, usually euro lights, will be an inch off the ground, most of time ugly wheels, and slow as hell. There's a difference between tuners ad ricers
Stephen Ishard Feb 23, 2011
I would rather ride a bike than drive any ricer
Lee Hyatt Feb 23, 2011
Who in their right mind would pick a civic SI over a camaro??
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2011
Well Jorge I dub you clinically insane. That's crazy talk
Jorge Martins Feb 23, 2011
I'll take an Si over that any day. But that's just my opinion.
