      I just vomited in my mouth... Whoever did that should kill themselves, just do it. You obviously have no real reason to suck up our precious oxygen and consume our H2o.

      I love it.

      I think I'm pretty for even liking this genre of car modification in the first place though
      That describes 80% of the "stance" cars out there

      I guess my point is, you must accept the fact that not all of us care about boring mundane cars all that much. It isn't about whether you like the new Camaro or not, it is about not saying idiot things like that. Saying it is just a Camaro is foolish, this isn't your garden variety Camaro. This thing costs as much as a TT RS. All of you badgewhore would be glued to your computers if some hood rich idiot put 28s on one of those.
      How did you come to this conclusion based off of what I said? Show me where I passed judgement on anyone about their car. Also the part where I tried to convince people my cars are cooler than a ZL1. If there was ever a time youmad.jpg was appropriate...

      i'm just surprised that they appear to fit with little-to-no modification to the body. Those wheel wells must be huge!

      I bet it would lose to a base V6 in a drag race.

      Camaros are lame, I'm glad this guy likes them rather than molest an Avion-Voisin. You could definitely fit 28's on dis right hur, no dowt.

      As someone who played with Matchbox cars as a child, I wholeheartedly approve of this car. I do get what you guys are saying though. Before those wheels were put on it was most likely going to be used to win a race against the evil Winchester twins, which due to an implausible bet was going to save grandmother's house from being bulldozed by Mr. Winchester, who had plans to build a shopping mall.

      do you really think a dealer gives a crap what you do with the car once its paid for? they just want to make money, they don't care if you drive it off a cliff or paint it hot pink and write Pu$$y wagon on the side.

      I didn't say they would pop wood, but there would be so much more outcry and general hate towards it. I am talking like--9 pages already..possible lock by tues.--rozaps for weeks kind of attention.

      Because it is a Camaro, the euroboy default response is "meh/teh suck anyways yo/too bigfatheavyamericanexpsnsive to be cool."

      generally i agree with you but regardless of what engine is in it, i've driven them, including the convertible, coupe and the SS versions of both. horrible cars, power is decent but other than that, not much else, interior is interesting but nothing id shout home about.

      id rather have a vette or a 5.0 stang.

      the Camaro is quite honestly the lousiest sports car i've seen. horrible blind spots, poor driving visibility, its no wonder every time you see one on the road the owner is doing 50mph

      I don't know what's crazier, the choices, or the fact that it was probably done on credits so their choices will haunt them forever.

      Did I ever tell you how big my erection was when I test drove a Charger R/T Classic for an afternoon? I would buy a Charger every single time before a Mustang or Camaro, but I still like the Camaro. As far as calling it a sports car.......I wouldn't. I'll stop there.

      The ZL1 is NOT a limited production vehicle. If this a real ZL1, if anything that means there is another LSA engine in the junkyard in ten years. What are we complaining about again?

      Awesome is only measured by a numbered plaque on the dash, matching stitching, and interweb cred. This will not be your run of the mill ls1/2 swap. You'd be lucky intuit car touches down in a bone yard with seats or wheels, let alone the power train.
