Unless they don't go Retro, Or something like that, Or don't keep to the true Chevelle tradition(Regarding CID) Then I don't really want one if there gonna make ones and not have it be a special as the last Great one. I Don't want Chevy to pull a Dodge with there Charger and Avenger..

I don't have anything to add, but I did just read a test by Car and Driver of this car in their February 1970 issue. It includes some other prominent cars, and involves lap times at Lime Rock. It can be read here: http://www.caranddriver.com/comparisons/shelby-ac-cobra-289-vs-ford-mustang-boss-302-chevy-ss454-chevelle-plymouth-duster-340-comparison-test
