|drewhelm||I agree with the dislike of the Monaro, or Australian GTO. I have to say a LOT of Pontiac enthusiasts are unhappy with it! The car is supposed to be a performer though. LS1 with a 6 speed and rear wheel drive.....it should be pretty fast. Personally, I am disappointed to see the Camaro/Firebirds go. I have a 69 Firebird and a 2002 Trans Am. Looking at the two side by side you can see a lot of similarities between the two. I hope they take some of the old styling aspects to the new platform, too. Oh, they'll be back........back with a vengeance....|

dinger - For me, it's usually the other way around. My wife usually says, "Why would you put that in the 36." Then again, she questions all of my great ideas. You should have seen the look I got when I told her about my brother and my idea about the go-cart with the Mazda engine!

Croz you can forget that idea. Because of fuel economy, aerodynamics and handling capabilities you aren't going to see another true production muscle car. I just want to see a cool car with personality and individuality, I don't care if its production fast, that I can do at home, but please make it cool and distiguishable.

|Croz||lol, they could call it a Dodge "they already do that" Ram.... hehehe... anyway, I agree about the GTO, i am disappointed in thier choice. I liked that concept back in 99, i even have a plastic model of it. Looks a lot better than the Monaro, but maybe it will perform. Truthfully, i didn't like the path they were taking Camaros and Firebirds, they were getting too much like a vette, low to the ground and all. I would like to see them spend a few years designing them and come back with something that is closer to a muscle car feel. Up off the ground, i can wipe my tail at home in my bathroom, i don't need it to drag the ground as i drive.|

Wait a minute, now that I think about it, maybe I should actually read articles rather than look at the pictures and captions!
Anyway, I don't keep up on what companies are doing with their new vehicles. Thanks for the correction BigBlockBabe (not to mention the humbling... <img src="graemlins/mwink.gif" border="0" alt="[mwink]" /> <img src="graemlins/boxing.gif" border="0" alt="[boxing]" /> <img src="graemlins/drunk.gif" border="0" alt="[drunk]" /> )!!

Hold up. Are you saying they put a Hemi in a Dodge Ram?! No way! Maybe Dodge should think of doing that...wait, they already do!

Couple greasy kids in a Duster pull up to this fella in a new Dodge Ram towing a Charger on the trailer. Kids go "is that a Hemi", fella goes "yep"...then the light changes and he takes off and leaves the Duster. Next light they pull up and the guy goes "oh, you mean the Charger? Its got a Hemi, too!"
That commercial is SO cool. Kudos to Dodge. I saw one of the new Hemi Rams and the badges are cool in theirself. <img src="graemlins/drool.gif" border="0" alt="[drool]" />
As far as the F-body, I think they are coming back in 2004. The new GTO is based on the Holden Monarro out of GM Australia. Its got the same LS1 in it.

Yes, but when they return, wll they be nice rides or rice rides?
Anyone beside me like the Dodge truck commercial when the guys in the car ask if its a hemi?

|1meancuda||I agree with you there Faust. Seriously though, I doubt GM will keep these cars gone for very long. Perhaps they will come back in with a bang though! Can you say 8100????|
