The following link is an article at BON on the future of the Camaro & Firebird platforms. Interesting article. I'm not a huge fan of Camaro's, but I like the new Trans Am a lot. & regardless of how you feel about Ford & Stangs in particular, you gotta respect the LS-1. I, for one, hope the other pony cars stay on the market; competition keeps Ford on their toes!

It's just like everything else that goes on. Something is coming around the corner that is better and faster. I say fare ye well to the current F-bod. I had 2 of them (95 & 98). I was also one of the first posters on LS-1.com when the board was first introduced by a gent named "Hutch". My 95 Z28 was a pile of crap. I had to go through arbitration to get any kind of compensation for it. They ended up giving me a 98 Z28. While this car was much better, it still had many short comings. Don't get me wrong, I love the engine and the extra power afforded from it, but you know, this Bullitt that I bought has been just a superb car. It may not be as fast, but the refinement of it in a general sense is just that much better to me. The fact that it came with so much more as a package has made my decision to purchase it that much more comfortable. I used to fight the Camaro when I would drive it. Poor visibility, uncomfortable seats, a distorted rear hatch, not being able to see over the nose of the car, that godawful passenger hump, etc...etc....etc. Then the problems started with only a few thousand KMS on it. However, I have other friends who just rave about their reliability, so you can't judge anything on opinions.

I think a solid redesign of that platform is what is needed. I just hope that they don't release it before it is really ready. GM and Ford both have tendencies to do that. Take for example, the 99 Ford Lightning...I won't even go into that one here.

I realize that the Mustang is more "raw" than a refined sports car, so to speak and I accept it's shortcomings but everytime I turn that key, a smile like no other can be seen through my windshield that was gone for a long time until now.

I'm keeping #2181, thankyou! :wink:
