Camaros ready for delivery

With regular production of saleable cars not scheduled to start until March 16th, a Camaro enthusiast took some nice pictures of a few cars in plastic waiting to load on to a truck for delivery to somewhere...

Reminds me of those vintage images of 1969 Camaros on Don Yenkos lot!

1985 IROC with only 4 miles

Check out this ebay gem!

1985 Camaro IROC Z28 with 4 (four) actual miles on the odometer

The first year the IROC option was offered. This car was recently liberated from 23 years of inside storage. The car has only 4.3 actual miles on the odometer. According to the original and only owner of this car, he purchased it new in 1985. The car was taken directly from the GM auto transporter and put into storage. This car was never dealer prepped, that is why all of the factory GM markings are still on the glass, mirrors and other parts of the car. The interior is still covered in the factory plastic as delivered to the dealer. The front air dam is still in it's sealed plastic wrapper along with mounting hardware in the back seat. These cars were transported without the air dam because they would get damaged coming off of the trailer. Installation would have been part of dealer prep. The rear cargo cover is in the box in the back seat, never having been installed.

The pace car will be a 2010 Camaro SS with a 426 hp 6.3-liter V8 and a the Tremec six-speed manual transmission. The ONLY modifications made to the pace car will be the addition of strobe lighting!

Now if we can do something about the paint scheme...

GM Performance Parts 427 SS

The 427 Camaro Back With Its Version Of THE 2010 CamaroJust as the COPO option gave enthusiasts a back door to performance in 1969 with its factory 427cid engine, GM Performance Parts carries on this legacy with its hopped-up version of the 2010 Camaro SS. Starting, of course, by supplanting the LS3 for an LS7, GMPP was intent on creating the wildest fifth-gen to date while staying true to the Camaro's historic roots. Lucky for us, achieving extraordinary performance is possible while making so few deviations from the factory equipment, or in this case, GM products-albeit from the pages of the GMPP catalogue.

The GMPP Camaro was originally part of an early run, and is actually not a production version so-to-speak, but "all of the components are production design," says GM Performance Division Project Manager Mike Copeland. It was originally black, and was repainted a more eye-catching red aside from the hood and rear panel, which were painted flat black in an ode to old school hot rodding. That of course is balanced nicely with the very new school Brembo 6-piston front and 4-piston rear brake upgrade to fill up the one-off 20-inch hoops. Meaty Pirelli P Zero 255/40R20 and 305/65R20 rubber accompanies them.

2010 Camaro SS Commercial?

It looks like Clayton Moore and Jerry Peluso are working with Chevrolet to develop a new Camaro commercial?

Further delays for the Camaro Z28?

Autoweek magazine is reporting this week that GM has disbanded their High Performance Vehicle Operations team effective Wednesday, February 18, 2009.

Per GM's Vince Muniga, All high-performance projects are on indefinite hold, all effected engineers have been redeployed to work on other projects. Vince goes on to say this program could be reinstated once GM regains their financial health.

Looks like a high performance version of the Camaro, possibly with Camaro ZR1 or Cadillac V Series power train is just one step further away from enthusiasts. At least to buy one new on the showroom ;)

Regarding the Camaro SS or Corvette models, GM spokesperson Vince Muniga has addressed this concern. He has told InsideLine; "You've got the Camaro SS coming out. It is not threatened at all and will be coming out as planned. The Camaro SS, Corvette ZR1 and Z06 were all developed as regular production models, and not through the HPVO unit.
Hence, all of these vehicles are safe".

Camaro: 2010 V6 vs 1967 SS 350

Motortrend published an interesting comparison;

We've driven the base, V-6-powered 2010 Camaro, and we're impressed. Actually, we're more than impressed. At first acquaintance, the entry-level version of Chevy's 21st century ponycar looks and feels a winner. It's smooth, quick, and accomplished on the road, with great steering, nice chassis balance, and good grip, even on the standard 18-in. wheel/tire combo. We can't wait to drive the V-8.

But with the hassle of high gas prices, the looming threat of the new 35-mpg CAFE laws, the worrying knocks from the engine room of the American auto industry -- all the stuff that has the doomsayer enthusiasts pining for the good old days -- this new Camaro got us thinking: Who needs a V-8?

We haven't had the chance to track test a new Camaro yet, of course, but this is what we do know about the numbers: More than 300 hp under the hood; a 0-60-mph time of at least 6.1 sec or better; EPA fuel consumption numbers of 18/26 mpg; a price tag of around $24,000. Independent suspension all round. Disc brakes all round. Alloy wheels. Available six-speed manual or automatic transmissions.

Right Hand Drive Camaro canceled

Due to the economic conditions at General Motors, it appears they have recently cancelled plans to produce a Right Hand Drive version for buyers overseas. Reportedly, they will send about 100 Left Hand Drive models to the UK to keep the car qualified for type/approval regulations.

GM may also limit sales to the 422 HP SS model at a price of $50,000 USD.

Camaro to pace the Daytona 500

The 2010 Camaro was chosen to pace the 2009 Daytona 500!

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Feb. 7, 2009) – Daytona International Speedway officials announced the return of the Chevy Camaro as the Official Pace Car of the 51st running of the Daytona 500—the first Camaro to pace the field since 1969.

“Chevy has been a great partner of the Daytona 500 for more than 30 years, and the Camaro is an automotive icon,’” said Speedway President Robin Braig. “This 2010 model will set the tone for a 21st century sports car, and that’s a perfect fit to lead the pack at the ‘Great American Race.’’

The 426-horsepower vehicle, powered by the 6.2-liter all-aluminum Chevy V-8, carries a PPG Cyber Grey paint scheme with a bold accent design befitting “The World Center of Racing.” A Camaro has paced the field just twice in Dayton 500 history, in 1968 and ’69, and this 2010 model is scheduled to hit showroom floors this spring.

Built on GM’s new global rear-wheel drive architecture, the Camaro also will be offered in V-6-powered LS and LT models. Additional specs of the 2010 model pace car include:

  • All-aluminum 6.2-liter V-8
  • 426 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque
  • Fully integrated strobe system, including a GM-designed custom light bar utilizing Whelen 500 series linear strobes
  • 27-mpg estimated highway fuel economy
  • Fuel-saving Tremec 6-speed manual transmission
