Sweet! Not a fan of the taillights on them, but I respect them and think their cool cars. Wonder what the name will be. I'm guessing one of their classic names like chevelle or something.

caprice... i bet. i dont see them naming it anything cool, i mean it was even called a G8 at one point
its big, its heavy, its rwd, it has a V8, the owners do burnouts with them in private parking lots... i feel as if ive been down this non impressive road before *shoulder shrug*

Yay more aluminum LS blocks for me to pick from some day. I know there are a lot of bowtie haters on here. I'd have counted myself among those back in the day when the Gen1 block was the only SBC there was. These LS blocks are the hot-rod engine, and will be the hot rod engine for as long as Chevy produces them. There was a time when I'd have said if I wanted to put a V8 in a British or Japanese sports car, the 302 was the way to go. I just can't pick the 302 over an all aluminum LS. It just doesn't make sense.

Does that mean Chevy is buying the rights to build the exact same car, or they have to built from there own blue prints? I don't get that part? Is it the same or different?

I loved the G8. I'm glad it's being produced. Now I want to see what it will look like.
