Can you believe it has been about 7 years since the last Chevy Camaro rolled off the assembly line? Wow, I sure can’t believe it. I guess it is time that it came back and the new one does not disappoint with a tested 0-60mph time of 4.6 seconds (SS V8 automatic) as tested by Motor Trend with an automatic tranny. That’s pretty impressive! I just hope these numbers are not fudged by GM paying off Motor Trend (behind closed doors). That would put the new 2010 Camaro just ahead of the new Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang. The American muscle is back! Maybe this will help SAVE the big 3 from a disaster about to happen. What do you think?
