Camaro Assembly images hit the web

This week it seems someone with access to the Oshawa Assembly plant took a few pictures of a certain body of a certain car. I'm sure there will be some investigation into this one.

5GO test drives the new Camaro had a chance to participate in the GM Camaro focus group yesterday at the GM Proving Grounds in Milford, Michigan. As the participant posts "While my personal preference remains the V8 model, you will not be disappointed by the V6 model in appearance or performance – the V6 car will be a total sleeper!"

The Camaro is headed to Romania

General Motors Romania representatives declared that Romanians will buy this car since they are interested in models like Ford Mustang. The press reads that production of the new Camaro model will start by 2009 and by 2010 it should be available in Romania as well.


Latest interior pictures posted posted some recent images of a black Camaro. There are two good interior shots through the door glass. Not much new here, just something to hold us over until we get more dirt on the Camaro.

More than likely this is one of the cars we have already seen a few times.

Build your own 5th gen Penske Camaro posted this great write up on how you can make your very own Penske themed 2010 Camaro coupe. I know I've always wanted to make scale model cars, but since I was a teenager, just haven't taken the time to do it properly. I can always appreciate the work involved in a model like this one.

Check out the link below to see the well documented steps and photographs to go along with them.

An inside look into developing the Camaro

GM has updated their Camaro information site. Some good reading material, here is a sample.

Phase 1: The Team And Testing

As we continue to move forward, now is a great time to look back at some of the key milestones in the development of the highly-anticipated fifth-generation Camaro.

Building the Right Team!!!

The key to developing a great vehicle is teamwork. We need very passionate people who will do whatever it takes to blend the right Powertrains & Chassis, Body & Interior, and HVAC & Electrical systems together with excellent Vehicle Performance & Integration.


Camaro from GM's best styling era was so good it lasted 12 years

Many who are waiting for the revived 2009 Chevrolet Camaro remember the 1968-69 Camaro Z-28, which was basically a Trans Am race car anyone could buy at a Chevy dealership. But its race engine wasn't very suitable for street driving, and I found that the car -- as with all race cars -- was generally uncomfortable.

The new 1970-73 Camaro, which also came as a high-performance Z-28 model, was much better. For one thing, it was comfortable. For another, it was gorgeous. The 1967 Camaro had bland styling, while the chunkier 1968-69 Camaro looked almost trucklike.

The exquisitely styled 1970 Camaro coupe came from the best era of General Motors styling, done under legendary GM styling chief Bill Mitchell. It resembled the fabulous Pininfarina-styled short-wheelbase Ferrari Berlinetta, with a small, high-set ovalish grille, long hood, short deck, pointing front fenders -- and trim and tapered rear fenders. It looked like a Ferrari for Americans.


Think the classic American muscle car is dead?

Chrysler started the production launch of the all new Dodge Challenger yesterday at the Brampton Assembly Plant . Just in time for $4.00 per gallon fuel prices here in the US. At $37,995 MSRP, all 7,000 of the 2008 SRT8 versions of the Challenger are already spoken for, with orders coming in already for 2009 models.

"Even though the development time for this Dodge Challenger SRT8 is one of the shortest in Chrysler's history, the wait for this exciting car has been too long, and as of today, the wait is finally over!" said Frank Ewasyshyn, Executive Vice President - Manufacturing. "Dodge Challenger represents the best of Chrysler's past and future. The teams that worked to bring this vehicle to market with quality and speed have done an excellent job."

It will be interesting to watch sales since the Ford Mustang has seen a decline already in 2008 with April 2008 sales down 19.7% compared to April 2007, the economy down and rising fuel prices, will the Camaro be more late to the party than it already is? Time will tell.

CAW wants more work at GM plants, or no deal

The union, which represents about 13,000 GM workers, is looking for long-term transmission work at the Windsor operation, extra parts output at plants in St. Catharines and additional models at a new flexible manufacturing complex in Oshawa.

GM will build the Camaro sports car at the Oshawa complex but has not identified any other models for production.

The company expects the Camaro to generate significant demand, but the complex needs other cars to justify its huge investment.

In recent months, local union officials have said they fear GM will use commitments for any further models in Oshawa as a bargaining chip in talks.


2009 Challenger SRT-8 in the driveway

A writer for Automobile Magazine took home a 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT-8 the other day.

"I’ll be pretty surprised if the new Camaro doesn’t beat the Challenger in just about every realm, but most proud Mopar nuts will probably love this car despite its faults."
