The advent of the ficticious 'go green' movement will hurt things dramatically. Now that car companies have joined in on the created craze (probably the worst being the person in the White House taking over my beloved GM), I look for it all to wane away. Cars like the Camaro which were on the drawing board, hopefully will not suffer the discontinued fate too quickly.

I'll tell you one thing, growing up in the Northeast at my age, standing on the corner of my street was like watching the Barrett-Jackson auction today..lol. A parade of Camaros, Mustangs, GTOs, Chargers, Challengers, Corvettes etc... For me, there is nothing better than classic American muscle. Personally, I was a Corvette man, owning a '68 (removable hardtop/convertible) 350/300 and my former prize, a '69 Corvette, T-Tops, knock out rear window, loaded, AC, PDR, PW and 350/350. Did a body off restoration, she was gorgeous.

After driving late model muscle for quite some time ( 90 Mustang GT, 94 Mustang GT, 95 Camaro Z28), I had to succumb to the family truckster when my son started playing football and hockey...going through a 98 Explorer, 02 Explorer and a 05 Equinox. Happy to say gents, I now own the best of both worlds (although it's a garage queen and wouldn't ever see utility duty), a TrailBlazer SS. For those unfamiliar, a word of warning, bring some muscle, otherwise you're going to look foolish looking at the back of a 5000pd SUV. Chevy was kind enough to fit her with the Corvettes' LS2 with 400 factory horsepower. After a CAI, Long Tube Headers, Corsa Sport Exhaust and a performance tune, she's good for about 455hp and scoots down the quarter in 13 flat...more than enough for the kiddies with the Stangs and ricers with the fart-can mufflers. Just for the sleeper value, this is almost my favorite of all the rides I've owned. Enjoy....
