Nicely done! An excellent first post!

Anyone know why the camo is still on some? I thought it was supposed to all be off a few weeks ago.

Welcome to the site!! Awesome post!! We're glad to have you here!!! :wave:

And please, if you see the Camaro anymore, take more pics and show us less fortunate who have yet to spot it or see it in person! lol

:happyanim: :happyanim:

cesmieu, THAT is ONE HELL of a way to make an entrance!!!!! I bet you were shocked to see the prototypes out there. How cool that would have been!

MadHatter, I thought that camo was supposed to come off too. It was either Scott or Ed that had said all the camo was coming off and to keep those cameras on hand.

WELL DONE, my friend. WELL DONE.:clap: :clap: :clap:

Nice, this is what Jalponik said

Though it may be a violation of some obscure TSA regulation, we're happy to see shots of the 2009 Chevy Camaro being delivered to LAX as it means the new bowtied muscle car is that much closer. These particular photos were snapped by an attentive member of the Camaro5 forum who happens to work the graveyard shift at the big airport. They even come in camouflaged and non camouflaged versions, which makes us think they were too lazy to rip off the tape before sending it over.

Mmmmm, spyshots

Wow, Cesmieu, you're just basking in all the fame here. Welcome to the boards and it looks like this saturday I'm heading to Benecia with a telephoto lens. Great shots!

Also, I thiink that it would be a pain to take the camo off cuz it might not be stickers. it might be sstsancilied paint. Cesmieu would be the one to tell us that.

Welcome... I would have to say the best way to start posting... :thumbsup:

Thats a neat setup they have for the two cars..... GM must have too much $$$ It would cost a fortune to have them airfreighted.... It cost me an arm and a leg to bring my 69 from US to AUS by container LOL

Will someone take a picture of the gas cap? That's one question that's killing me!

Sorry to tease you with twin horizontal milled billet aluminum hatches on the showcar but we couldn't afford to do anything cool with it on the real car. It's just like this one but on the American passenger side. There is SO much cool stuff on the Camaro I can't bear to see you get yourself so worked up over a filler door that doesn't exist.

Can anyone see if those are halo lights on the front? Just curious, bad eyes...(and I know it is not finished;) )
I like these pics for a simple reason...even though they are blurry, you can see the lines of the car in a lot of these pics that I could not see in the others and that has got me all :happyanim: :headbang: !!!!! This car is freakin sweet....

The front looks mean and true, (looking directly at the front) like i am lookin basically at the concept...the lines are sexy....dang...:bow:

By the way great first post and :coolpics:

stevenm357 01-29-2008 07:27 AM

awesome shots Thanks man....

I bet the V8 is still in camo! That or they just didn't take the camo off and that's the same camo car that's been running around all the time.

KevinK 01-29-2008 07:30 AM

...off to a nice start, ...welcome : )
cool shots :)

that's what I think... the white car is the V6 and the camo car is the V8... notice the difference in wheels and tire sizes? the camo car obviously has larger wheels with lower profile tires and the white car has smaller wheels and more rubber than wheel... historically, that is how GM mounts treads on their passenger cars.

and as everyone else has already said, welcome to the site and awesome first post! :w00t: :thumbup:

I swear Camero, Sometimes I feel like you get your jollies from deflating us with some of your posts.

i'm interested in where in europe it came from-austria?

Moosen75 01-29-2008 08:28 AM

that is some great work there. you get an A+ for that first post. i am happy they are starting to make their way back home where they belong. But here is a good question, where has the convertible been? i know its supposed to come a year after the coupe release but i am still surprised there has been no sightings.

munkee drummer 01-29-2008 08:29 AM

Heyyyy those do look like halo headlights!!! Good eye for spotting them! Where you running while taking those pics?? j/k lol Nice find though!

LAX is a loooooooooong flight from Europe... my guess is that those didn't come from Europe, contrary to what the article says... I'm betting them came from Oz.
