FULL Camaro COVERAGE @ INSIDELINE.COM:
The last thing General Motors needs right now is to appear as if it's stuck in the past, creating gas-guzzling cars that are out of step with what the federal government thinks is the future.
So even when Chevrolet steps into the way-back machine to unveil the 426-horspower retro-inflected 2010 Chevy Camaro SS, it's careful to mention that this muscle/pony car is the "sports car for the 21st century" and emphasizes the Camaro's fuel economy ratings more than its 0-60-mph performance.
So we did what had to be done. We dropped an asphalt-melting burnout in the parking lot of a former seminary that was of such destructive length that the guys hired by Chevy to prep and clean the Camaros had time to wander over and say, "Stop. You're done."
Had a Dairy Queen been available we would have laid a patch in front of that, too. Look, man. We've been waiting for years for the arrival of this car; there will be time to talk about balance and the quality of the interior materials later.
Nissan GT-R SpecV Exclusive
MORE NISSAN GT-R SPEC V @ INSIDELINE.COM:
The 2009 Nissan GT-R SpecV breaks the law.
Actually the GT-R has been breaking the law since last year. Before then,
the Japanese car industry kept its high-performance cars below a ceiling of
280 horsepower, an
unwritten, yet very real limit established by the Japanese government back
But the Nissan GT-R shattered the glass ceiling with its 480-hp twin-turbo V6. And now the 2009 Nissan GT-R
SpecV pushes even farther past the barrier, further reinforcing the GT-R's
status as a true supercar. Just over a year since the car's introduction,
Nissan has given a shot of steroids to Godzilla, creating the most extreme
road-going machine that Japan has ever seen.
And we've got the test numbers to prove it.
Chevrolet Camaro V6 Prototype Exclusive Look
SEE MORE ABOUT THE 2010 CHEVY Camaro:
It feels good to be on the other side. Recently, we got a chance to pilot a
2010 Chevrolet Camaro
V6 Prototype out on the public highways and byways of southeastern
Typically, we're on the other side of this game, pestering development
engineers and posting spy shots of some car just like these engineering
prototypes of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro V6. Heck, as far as we
know, we might have run pictures of one or both of these very automobiles.
Yes, these two bits of spy bait still had matte-black camouflage panels
(one with triangles made of what looked like white shoe polish),
ill-fitting bumper covers, no Chevy bowtie and a bunch of small makeshift
headlight elements, all of which taken collectively look a little bit like
But what do we care? We're driving the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro!
Fast & Furious 4: BMW M5
MORE FAST & FURIOUS @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Every Fast & Furious film has to have at least one over-the-top street race
with multiple cars careening along wildly, putting the lives of the drivers
(and anyone else who happens to be on the street at the time) in mortal
danger. And when it comes to mortal danger, what better car to face it in
than a BMW M5?
Fortunately for Fast & Furious, the 400-horsepower, V8-powered E39
generation (1998-2003) M5 is still a 5 Series sedan and acquiring and
redecorating much cheaper 528i and 540i models was easy. So the production
bought three old 540i sedans and four 528i models and redecorated them with
orange and black paint and 19-inch wheels. Of these seven BMWs, six were
destroyed. That includes three dropped off a bridge onto a road down below.
The M5 was another car that just seemed to emerge naturally during the
casting process — there wasn't anyone who didn't want the big, powerful
BMW in the show. And some design inspiration obviously came from German
tuning house Lumma Design's CLR 500 R-S version of the current E60 M5 that
was shown during 2007.
Of all the cars in the film, this one may be the least believable because
of all its body roll during the action scenes. It looks like an M5 with the
swaybars disconnected. Or a 528i with M5 front fenders.

2010 Camaro SS Birthday Surprise
May 2013 - Shane is now graduating from high school and the car remains in
excellent condition. You might also be surprised to learn that he still
hasn't gotten any tickets. We're very proud of the responsible young man he
Apr 2012 -- Well, Shane is now 17 and after 23,000 miles I'm happy to
report that he still hasn't had any accidents or tickets. He'll be a
senior next year and he's considering a career in automotive design. We'll
be posting an update video soon!!
Jan 2011 -- Shane has recently turned 16 and put more than 4,000 miles on
the car without ANY incidents. He takes outstanding care of the vehicle
and has grown to become a very responsible and mature teenager.
Feb 2010 -- My wife and I ordered a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS as a surprise birthday
gift for our fifteen year old son. This was a complete surprise and he
had absolutely no idea that the car was his. On another note, I appreciate
everyone's concern for his well-being, however I think it is more
responsible for a parent to teach a teenager how to drive than to pretend
that they're not going to drive fast. The car is not the danger; an
inexperienced driver is usually what causes injury or death, regardless of
Camaro is King! Mustang vs Challenger vs Camaro

1967 GT500 Eleanor: Re-imagining a Classic - /BIG MUSCLE
Carroll Shelby created it, "Gone in 60 Seconds" re-imagined it, and
audiences around the world made it famous. The 1967 Shelby GT500 Eleanor is
one of the most recognizable movie cars of all time. With the body lines of
a shark, the stage presence of a movie star and the perceived performance
of an olympic athlete, it's no wonder die-hard enthusiasts fell in love
with this amazing machine. BIG MUSCLE received so many requests for this
car that we just had to go out and find one. So now sit back, click play

really sunny that day - M. Musto
