I haven't had the opportunity to drive one of the newer Camaro's. The last GM sports car I drove was the 425HP last year TransAm they built. Kind of regret not buying it as they seem to be turning into rare cars these days.

I would like to see them bring some more of the Holden performance cars to the US. They make some interesting vehicles. Especially the "Utes", the modern iterations of vehicles like the Ford Ranchero.
