No Mullet Required
by Joe LaMuraglia
Monday, July 21, 2008 – Detroit, MI – I am in Detroit today as a guest of GM to attend the official unveiling of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro at 4 PM EST. Many of you may be asking “Why should I care about the Camaro? I don’t have a mullet and my last name doesn’t end in a vowel”. According to Travis Parman, GM’s LGBT media relations manager, “the Camaro – like its expected buyer – has evolved and become more sophisticated over the years”. While it sounds like Travis might be drinking the PR Kool-Aid, our initial viewings of the concept cars support his comments. The 2010 Camaro will certainly appeal to a wider audience than the last iterations of the nameplate.
GM is billing the Camaro as the “fun, efficient sports car for the 21st Century”. There has been a lot of speculation about the engines that will be available; including bets that the 260 HP turbo 2.0L four cylinder from the Cobalt SS will make an appearance. High-output V6 and a V8 engines are a sure bet. Fuel-efficient may be a stretch but will find out more in a few hours.
We’ll get photos and information up as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can watch the unveiling live here on Gaywheels.com! Who loves ya baby?

I was able to get some cool video as well. It should be up by the end of the week.
