Amazing looking sketches especially that second one with the racing stripes!

rahi 05-15-2006 09:48 AM

Pretty nice sketches, but I still prefer an SS coupe :)

Very nice. I would have to fight a battle in my mind when it came to choosing between the coupe or the convertible.

I'll take either theyre both just gorgeous! Wonder if a convertible would be released together with the coupe.

Ya I reall like that but to bad they won't have t-tops. but i still like the hard top best. but if they made the hard top ss look like that it would be sweet.

Casull 10-06-2006 02:37 PM

I really like that hood in the 2nd sketch. Hopefully they offer that hood instead of the one currently on the concept. I would have to say that I am also biased to the coupe. I would consider a convertable if it was offered in a hard-top though. I am just not a fan of ragtops. Of course if they offered t-tops I would be all over that option...

Have they already stated that t-tops will not be an option? Or is that speculation?

BlacLac02 10-06-2006 03:04 PM

im not a fan of rag tops give me a hard one baby. i like the stock hood on the concept.

All of us, I would think, have pretty much agreed that T-tops wouldn't work w/ that roof. It sucks, because I'm not a fan of Verts but like the open air. I would like a solid removable roof like the Vette, but doubt they would do that either.

As far as the hood goes...Low and I were discussing that same issue. GM didn't really do anything to make the SS in the 4th Gen stand out. I would say in my opinion that GM knows this and there would be a chance they would have to do something different w/ the SS to really make it STAND OUT. Yes, I know they did a SS hood and spoiler but that was about it. Will GM do the same and offer up a tear drop hood??? What'cha think?

BlacLac02 10-06-2006 04:02 PM

the ss had a whole new suspension wheels tires exhaust ram air not only the hood but actually functional. and the hood spoiler and they did offer alot of things from the factory as options on the ss , i think it was slp who made some parts for the ss like the grill and emboidered floor mats ground effects and center exhaust

TAG UR IT 10-06-2006 04:25 PM

Yeah. I'm leaning more towards outer appearance, though. I hope they do something to make it look more distinguishable and have people look from further away and say, "now that's an SS".

ilovethez28 10-07-2006 11:52 PM

i heard they are going to return to the original trim packages with z28 being top dawg. the ss was never top dawg until the 4th gen. the old models were camaro, rs, rs/ss, z28. something like that but z28 was the cream of the crop.

DESTRO 10-09-2006 11:13 AM

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm yummy. I'm not one for drop tops but those pics look good!

back in the 60's there was nothing they did to the camaro that made it really stand out in appearence from other camaro's. all they might have had was stripes or decals nothing over extravagant. they didnt even start doing any kind of ramair hood till 97 they had weird vents and stuff but no ss hood like the 4th gen. i kinda hope the oposite of what you want TAG. i want one that has the 427 and no badging or special hood or anything that makes it stand out from a regular 6.0l. i want a stealth 427.

TAG UR IT 10-10-2006 02:41 AM

I also thought a stealth version would be killer on the competition. People would have no idea until it was too late. On top of that, it also makes it less likely to get stolen if no one knows what really lies under the hood. I hope they let the buyer choose. I would like the obvious suspension, brake, etc, upgrades, but also a special hood, spoiler (maybe), badging, and stripe/s (if offered). I'm not talking a completely different car or anything. Just something to say, "Let me show you what your GT500 CAN'T do!"
:eek:

hey man in 68 and in 69 the SS was top of the line. they said it the other day on tv that the SS was GM's top dawg.:bow:

I like the looks of the 'vert, but I'll take a coupe please. :)

And, 'Z28' will be the "top dog" once again. ;)

boxmonkeyracing 10-11-2006 12:02 PM

sorry man but I don't see that happening the SS is Chevrolet's top dawg in everything the Silverado SS and all of GM's other SS's. The SS Camaro will be top dawg again.:evil:

HA! I like the way this is going! Now it's getting good. As far as the SS name, GM uses that waaaaaaaay too much. Everything is now an SS and that rubs me the wrong way. They should save that for the top of the line. But, we all know how GM is; they keep suprising us with everything. Moose sounds pretty sure, there. Take the bet. I wanna see who wins!

I will not deny that there are a lot of SS vehicles out there; however, on all of the SS models that badge does represent the top of the line performance package for that specific model.

I would be very very suprised if the SS doesn't return as the top package for the Camaro. It just would not make sense from a marketing perspective otherwise. Those of us who actually know that at one point in time the SS was NOT the top dawg are relatively few in numbers. The greater majority of soon-to-be Camaro owners view the SS at the best of the best Chevy has to offer becasue of their recent marketing campaigns.

Moose 10-12-2006 09:04 AM

I admit, "SS" Camaro to me meant "top dog" as well.

That being said, as I've heard it said and seen it written, "any Chevrolet can be a "SS", but only a Camaro can be a "Z28". :D If you look back in time, the "Z28" has alot of history attached to it, re; Trans Am racing. Therefore, I see Chevrolet naming the "top dog" "Z28" and tying that history into the new "top dog". :iono:
