Hope there's a "new" Camaro and/or T/A in the mix. GM really needs it in my opinion, not every one can afford a Corvette.

I don't think there will be a camaro. In fact, it probably won't be needed. If I want something new, I'll just stuff in an ls7 crate engine in my TA. The 4th gens are perfect IMO. If you want a new car, get a GTO. ****, 400hp ls2. It doesn't get better than that(by much).
There's been speculation for years now, threads like this are old, and I see most people just moving on.

don't know where else to put this.... let the rumors FLY !!

A few weeks ago C&G told you that GM would be adding 50 design positions to its North American operations. The news came after two key departures were announced. 17-year design veteran Tom Kearns left GM to become design Chief for Kia and the designer of the already popular Pontiac Solstice left to work for a separate major automaker.

Upon the news of the departures and the announcement that 50 new positions would be filled, C&G’ers chimed in with the most obvious choice of new hire employees. One of which is a mainstay and has made a name for himself working with Popular Hot Rodding, the other has made a name for himself working with Cheers & Gears. Kris & Chris. Horton & Pauwels. Kris Horton & Crispey2k. Whatever you chose to refer to them as you can’t help but appreciate their crafty skills and their ability to turn even the most boring design into a masterpiece.

It seems as if GM may have caught on to the skills Mr. Horton possess. Popular Hot Rodding ran a story in their latest issue (on stands now) and made mention that GM had contacted PHR Editor Johnny Hunkins regarding a rendering Kris had done on a Camaro. They (GM) said the rendering was needed for an “internal design presentation” and was to be featured in a slide show. Shortly after Mr. Hunkins was contacted about the rendering, Kris Horton got a phone call from top management inside GM.

Kris Horton responded to the initial thread on C&G regarding the talks with the company, and the rumors that he was in talks with GM were confirmed. GM has made an attempt at one excellent designer, but they should not stop there.

On the other side of the Chris squared equation is C&G’s own Crispey2k, Chris Pauwels. Chris’s work has also been featured in Popular Hot Rodding. In the September issue the original rendering of the much talked about, highly praised Camaro concept that was featured with the article was done by Chris Pauwels. The 3-D version was Kris Horton’s excellent work.

Chris Pauwels is excellent for a design position inside General Motors and his renderings have caused quite the stir. Months before any official rendering, description or hint was given of the Chevrolet Cobalt, Pauwels nailed the design going by what he thought the Cobalt would look like. His rendering was so accurate it prompted a meeting with people close to the Cobalt project and warnings were handed out. GM thought employees told Pauwels of the design, when in actuality he did nothing more than guess.

In an attempt to do damage control and employee close to the Cobalt project went on an enthusiast site and proclaimed C&G and Crispey’s work as “infamously unreliable” a comment that still catches a few jokes once in awhile in our forums.

A good look at Crispey’s latest work can be seen in the upcoming release of the C&G Underground Project. Crispey has done all of the artwork on every variant and those that have seen the finished product rave about it. More on the Underground when it makes its formal debut within the next week.

So here is an open challenge to General Motors on behalf of every automotive enthusiast that has ever visit C&G. If you are serious about designs, and if you are serious about remaining the #1 automaker worldwide these are two people you must consider for a position with the company. Their track records speak for themselves.

GM employees don’t praise their work for nothing.
