    Default New Cars for 2007

    I'm a little biased and still think the Mustang is the best retro looking new car recently. However these two new entries are pretty good:


    Trans Am



    Challenger

    Rich.. as far as I know, the Camaro will come out first in 2008 at as a 2009 model, then Pontiac will get a version a year later.

    As Artie said. The Mustang was the original pony car, with the retro design intoduced in 2005, GM and Mopar are playing catch up once again.

    Well. Simple statement is: I never really liked them the first time around, so likely not really going to change my opinon on the "retro" version either, I suspect.

    I'll take the Ford any day. Preferably the original Shelby variant tho....

    A friend has one. It's the goofiest car I've ever ridden in, but man, it sure does turn heads. And occassionally, we meet women.

    I'm holding out for the remake of the Chysler Cordoba with rich, Corinthian leather...the Corinthians' economy could sure use the boost.

    Is Ricardo Monteban (sp) still alive BTW?

    According to Wikepedia, yes. He actually worked on a movie last year to (Ant Bully).




    And as for the Camaro, I'll hold out for the Challenger concept, but that bandit camaro is nice. I was always a big fan of the 77 and 78's in full thunder chicken dress.

    My pulse definatly acclerated when I saw that Trans-Am. I definatly like the new Challenger though.
    Just know, I chose my own fate. I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.

    When I got to be close to getting old enough for my licence, my Dad threatened to find me a Nash Rambler...... In the end, I "settled" for a 1970 Buick Wildcat (last year for them too). Biggest 7 cylender V8 I ever drove. LOL (ya the cam was just a wee bit worn out on #6......heheeheheehhee) AND MAN what a smoke show it would put on. OH wait, that was burning oil. LOL
