Found this on LS1.com: GM ends the rumour: Firebird, Camaro no more. There will be no revival of the Pontiac Firebird and Chevy Camaro no matter how much the fans wish it, according to a higher authority at General Motors. How high an authority? Try Bob Lutz, vice chairman of General Motors. What Lutz says can be taken to the bank, and he's just put a kibosh of persistent rumours among enthusiasts that the sporty GM twins might be coming back. Lutz has revealed that in order to get the CAW to agree to the closure of the Camaro plant in Ste. Therese, Que., the company was forced to promise the union it would not build the car anywhere else. The company intends to honour that pledge, because "a deal's a deal," Lutz said recently. That means no more dead chickens on hoods for a decade or so. After that? Well, even deal makers do eventually retire. Comment: Doesnt' mean there won't be a RWD v8 from GM, but it won't be an Fbody and it won't be a Camaro. I expect the GTO to continue and perhaps a Chevelle or completely new car to emerge. Sucks for Fbody fans though.
