It's Back!

Gearheads rejoice! After six long years, the era of the Pony Car is reborn!

Meet the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro.

With a 6.2-liter V-8 engine putting out 425hp and 408 lb-ft of torque; this bad boy is aimed straight at the Mustang and the Dodge Challenger. The Muscle Car Wars have a new force on the battlefield. And to make certain individuals (*cough* *cough* *Al Gore* *cough*) happy, the engine features Active Fuel Management, which means it shuts down up to four of its cylinders to increase fuel economy while cruising, for a maximum of 23mpg highway. (Bear in mind, this figure is for the aforementioned 6.2L V-8 from the SS model, not the sissy 3.6L V-6 of the lesser models)

What's really exciting is that this could mean the return of a whole string of classic muscle cars. In the good ol' days, the Camaro and Pontiac Firebird were built on the same platform. If the Camaro is a roaring success (which all accounts say it should be), this might mean the rebirth if the Firebird, then maybe the Pontiac GTO, and from there, who knows?

Now, the only question remaining is thus: should I stick with getting my Mustang, or pick up one of these instead?
