    A Shelby GT-H for the Masses, Not Just Hertz

    [​IMG]

    Automotive News has revealed that the third Shelby Mustang in Ford's pony car corral will be a retail version of the Hertz Shelby GT-H rent-a-racer called the Shelby GT. The car will be a 2007 model and production will be at least a few thousand. No word if the Shelby GT will differ from the rental car in any way, either visually or mechanically.

    Camaro to roar back by 2008

    [​IMG]

    It's really happening: The Chevy Camaro is coming back as a production car, the Free Press has learned.

    General Motors Corp. Chairman Rick Wagoner is expected to announce the resurrection of the legendary muscle car in a speech Thursday to an automotive conference in Traverse City.

    The Camaro could be built as early as 2008 and will offer three engines, a V-6 and two V-8s, according to people familiar with the plans.

    The Camaro was introduced in 1966 as the answer to the Ford Mustang, and it prowled America's streets and drag strips until production ended in 2002.

    Like the concept, the production Camaro will be based on GM's new Zeta global architecture for rear-wheel-drive cars engineered by Holden in Australia for the VE Commodore. Zeta is expected to form the basis for several big, powerful sedans and coupes to be introduced over the next few years.

    They didn't, but the LS6 was replaced by the LS2.

    :ugh: LS6 you say? Why would GM use a LS6 when they have a LS2 and LS7 that are better than the LS6 that is no longer produced?

    Like I said, I'm PRAYING for an LS7 option, but I don't think GM will put that in ANY vehicle except the vette. they sure don't want this car encroaching on Z06 sales.
