Discontinuing An Icon That I’ve Owned Four Of – What Is It?
At every point in time, change is inevitable. It will come, no matter how hard you may try to put it off as long as possible, it will come. I hate change. I am a creature of habit with pretty much all aspects of life. Waking up, work, home, bed, it all coincides within itself with no change. I like it that way. Which is pretty strange considering how vehicles come in and out of my life. For a guy that doesn't like change, I have sure changed what I drive quite often!
The Times They Are a Changin' - Vehicles Aren't Any Different
It was recently announced that Dodge would be ending production of big motor cars at the end of the 2023 model year. No more Hellcats, no more Challenger or Charger with that big ole Hemi sitting under the hood. The only good thing about that news is that they do plan to continue the motor in the form of the Durango. Talk about a grocery getter! Earlier this week, General Motors and Chevrolet announced that they would be ending the production of the 6th generation Camaro in 2024. And while they say there will be a couple special editions of the car, they aren't sure if it will remain in the stable as more manufacturers move towards the EV style of cars. GM says it will offer a special edition RS, SS and ZL1 packages, but the run of cars will end in January of 2024 and no more will be produced after that. It's even been mentioned that they will offer a "Panther" version, harkening back to the original name that was a concept for the car back in 1966.
I've Had Four of Them - Should I Spring for Another Customized One?
Over the years, the Camaro has been my go-to hot rod. Starting with a 1980 Z28 model, I have owned 3 others in my lifetime. 2 convertibles, one a 1991 and the second a 1992 model, the last a 2011 RS edition. Of them, my first and last were my favorite. I just recently sold my last one and am now kind of kicking myself over it! How about you? Do you think you would be making an order for a final model?
