    Some folks think that Camaro = "sports car?

    The live axle, porky handling, sloppy steering and weak braking kill it for me, no matter what you bolt onto the engine.

    I also don't have a mullet though so that might be what's driving my feelings.

    Yeah - although it did take me a few times before I even spotted that....

    Now I remember why I stopped posting on this site. I guess I failed to mention the car has 6 piston brembos up front, 4 piston rears and full tubular k-member, a-arms, and coil overs, ext... But I guess if it wasn't a sports car when I bought it, it isn't. Maybe I should have used the term performance car for you guys who get stuck up in semantics.

    BTW, the 3rd gen was the mullet mobile.

    Actually, I DO use my Miata.

    I use a XPORT Flatbed 2-Bike. The lower bar curves away from the ground, so it doesn't drag when backing out of driveways like my old Thule did.

    The only problem is lack of trunk space - a spare wheel doesn't fit. So packing for endurance races is a pain.

    Dang, seriously...

    Camaros can be made into great sports cars. Although I am not a fan of them, I see why people like them.

    Jumping on him like that was about as bad as that loser who was in the RV thread talking about how stupid everyone that isn't like him is.
    Pics down though... would love to see it!


    And the miata pic... hilarious! HAHAHA

    That's OK. Your avatar seems sporty enough to make up for it.

    Whoever peed in your cereal must have drizzled a little on your forehead. So much anger and negativity. You must be really miserable.

    This is the 21st century you bonehead.

    There's not too much I can talk bad about the new Camaro. It does NOT use a live axle (the Mustang still does), it uses 4-wheel independent suspension...

    Still on the heavy side, my AWD car has a better power-to-weight ratio, which is what acceleration is all about. The new mustang has done quite a bit better in this regard, as they've done a better job of shaving weight, but with a solid axle it's pretty poor. The new dodge is the worst of all, well over 4000lbs (I think nearly 4400!). The new 370Z has dropped a lot of weight compared to the old 350, which would make a better choice than the other "three".

    Not mine, but I spotted this Corvette at a race last fall.

    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    You, and a few other dim bulbs, are confusing "anger and negativity" with amusement.

    Regardless, your responses just add to the humor.

    What you should ask yourself is:

    Why are your panties twisted because someone doesn't think that the OP's Camaro is a sports car?

    I'm glad you find my comment about drizzle on your forehead amusing. I guess it doesn't take much to make you a happy camper. Maybe you're not so miserable after all

    Your opinion of Camaros is irrelevant. It's the way you present your "opinion". Don't mind me though...keep clowning away...

    it really sucks owning a sportscar for biking. a huge factor to me selling it is biking. second is how irrational having a modified sportscar is for driving anywhere except the track. no use in being able to take on ramps at twice the posted limit when you're in traffic or know a cop is at the end waiting.

    Nope, that drizzle comment was just childish. Your "anger and negativity" silliness was what was amusing.
