Ya, the 2007 Camaro was scrapped. GM was going to put out a RWD platform (called Zeta maybe?) for 2007, and they were planning to make the Monte Carlo's and Malibus RWD, too with a small V8. The only thing they followed through on was the V8 in the Malibu. Basically they said that their RWD platform wouldn't be able to compete quality wise with that of the Chrysler/Dodge RWD platform. Since the Camaro is technically on "hiatus", I figure it will make a return (along with the T/A) at some point in the near future

If it's not made bt Chevy, it's not a Camaro. I loved the old Baldwin Motion Camaros, and this one seems pretty sweet too (to say the least). But for almost half a mil., you could build a sweet 1st Gen. Camaro, put in a 700 HP motor, and keep the spare 400K and buy a few of those GMMG Camaros if you love them that much.

SHhh, GM might hear you and make a crappy GTO clone that looks just like a GTO with a different grill and then the Ford guys will really be laughing.

And GM thought adding hood scoops and dual exhaust would save GTO sales...

They could call it the Grand Am, or the G6, or the Grand Prix
