I think your thread title is a bit incorrect. Camaro was listed as one of the Nominees. It is not Nominated as you stated!

Also, a nominee would need to be "seconded" for it to become official...so there's that...But somehow I doubt the Rules of Parliamentary Procedure will be used to pick a winner...lol

That list seems really imbalanced. Honda Civic Type R and Audi R8 are being directly compared against one another? Wtf. Although both performance cars, that's about as far apart as you can get.
