Well guys after reviewing the good points of the camaro just a bit more, I think I really understand what’s going on here, I don’t really think the camaro needs that much work, some of the pictures just don’t do it a lot of justice, Chevy has put a lot of hard work in to this car and they deserve kudos, and yes they will get those kudos from me.
I’d said in a earlier post here that the camaro had a lot of work to do to catch up to the new Dodge challenger, and now I withdraw that comment, the camaro is nothing less then the best, and really the challenger has nothing over it, and this is by no means bagging on the challenger, it’s a tough car, and Dodge deserves a lot of respect for building it.
I do believe this is shaping up to be a good muscle car battle, the camaro vs. mustang vs. the Dodge challenger, and it’s hard for me to pick a winner, I know if it boils down to a road race, the camaro and the challenger stand a better chance then the mustang to win, but if this battle comes down to 1/4 mile performance, each of these cars will be very competitive right to the end.
It will boil down to how good the drivers handle the cars and how good the tuners tune them, it will be a close call on that one, being the biggest Chevaholic on the planet, it’s hard for me to not be biased, but these cars are very close in the performance areas, none of them have anything to be ashamed of, they are all mean cars that deserve a lot of respect in the end.
This is just shaping up to be a good battle, and if you’ve seen the specs on these cars then you can’t deny that, the big boys are playing with the big toys again, the big three motor companies are really pouring it on in a good way, and it’s about time.
I think this is going to help remind us gear heads of the old days, when the big three motor companies were in heavy competition for the top honors in the muscle car wars, but now they have a new weapon to fight with, and it’s called technology, the computers and electronics are doing amazing things for the new muscle cars, they make power easier then they used to by far.
In the old days, we’d spend a whole weekend changing carburetors and camshafts and heads just to gain 45 or 50 hp, now that can be done with a chip, and if you get a kit that has a camshaft matched to the chip, the possibilities are endless, and it takes a lot less time and effort these days to do the mods then it did back then, this is why I say it’s shaping up to be a good battle.
As you can imagine I’m a very excited man, I’m going nuts waiting for these new cars to hit the showrooms, I love the muscle cars and this just makes me all giddy just like a little school girl waiting to go on her first date, the anticipation is killing me, so if I should keel over dead before this all happens, then someone please do take over where I left off.
