So will the Cherry Bomb creation light the way for a new trend, or is it a flash in the pan? It's too early to tell on the basis of styling points, but we do know that guys are getting pretty sick of cars that just sit around. The "Disturbing The Peace" Camaro is designed to be driven hard and often, and that's a trend that is already taking hold.
