Yeah, GeoHawk,
I think that I may just be coming up to that threshold (especially since I have been reading this forum and waiting on my newly ordered 2009 AWD SLT-2). ??? ;D
I never knew I could become this obsessed with, of all things, an automobile. I find myself reading this forum from wherever I can get on-line (even while we were on vacation in Florida). :sosad: ;)

Anyway, thanks for the information. ;D

Looks like the same motor is going into the base and LT Celica, oops- I mean Camaro.
Where did Celica come from?
As the former owner of a '73 Toyota Celica ST, I see a lot more styling of that car vs. the beautiful '69 Camaro. I'm dyed in the wool so far as Chevys go (I have their motors in a Mazda, Toyota, Datsun, and BMW), but they dropped the ball on styling the new Camaro. Now with the gas crunch it sounds like they are trying to sell it as an economy car.

Funny how things go round (i.e. you can't reinvent the wheel)- the Corvair was an economy car in 1960, but by 1962, it had developed into a "sporty" car with a convertible option & turbo motor. This eventually led to the Mustang in '64.5/'65, which then led to the Camaro in '67. While you could always get a 6 cylinder in a Camaro, it has always been known as a muscle car. The Celica was Toyota's answer circa '71 to the long hood/short deck American pony car.

Semi-related, Dodge did an outstanding job on the new Challenger (with the exception of the 20" wheel option). If I were to buy a 2009-2010 muscle car, I would certainly buy one of those vs the new Camaro on looks alone. Plus, a Hemi R/T is priced about he same as an Acadia, just not as practical :).

Couldn't get exactly the same angle, but I think these show the similarities:

Celica



Camaro

I don't see the similarity but each has their own opinion. I love the new Camaro and plan to buy one as soon as my Acadia is paid off. I don't like the fact that they are selling it as an economy car. But it does have a kick *** V6 that gets 26 MPG, way better than a "Crapstang".

Think of it as a segue... we were still talking about the same motor, just got distracted by some sheetmatal & (IMO) attempted retro styling.

Well, for what it's worth, I used to be the proud owner of a 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T 340 when it was brand new (I guess you can deduce from that my approximately age). At any rate, I'm sorry I ended up selling it to someone when it was only 10 years old (foolish me). :banghead:
So . . . what do I do? I end up going to the Chicago Auto Show in February and saw the "new" Dodge Challenger just being introduced, and fell in love! And wouldn't you know it . . . it's over 35 years too late! :eek:hno:

Oh, well. I still can fall in love with my Acadia when it finally arrives. ;)

Don't let me interrupt your conversation any longer. ;D

New Challenger= Good. Feel free to interrupt anytime about that.

I remember looking at them brand new in 1970 (not old enough to buy) with my dad- we ended up with a 318 CID Charger w/ a bench seat :(.
