So the 2009 Camaro is gonna be just as much of a 2-ton fatass as the Shelby GT500 is.

    When the 4th-gen F-body was out, it was pretty porky at 3400+ lbs. The next one will be 500 lbs heavier than that?!

    :ugh2:



    Thanks TriShield for the article.


    I still want an '09 though. :o :big grin:

    Well, the MX-5, for example, is 400 lbs. lighter than its GM "competitors". Why?

    because that's the miata's killer feature - light weight. The solistice/sky's killer feature is styling :hsugh:

    I'd expect an '02 to be somewhat versed with thread-starting procedure.

    The Z06 is marvelously light for what it is. For lots more money though, it could be lighter. What's weird to me is cars like the $300,000 Murcielago that are two tons.

    i dont know what's up OT's ass, i'm down for this badass machine - if i got one it wouldn't be so much 'mullet' mentality, more like ultra street rod :coold:

    edit- that is disapointing, 500 lbs
