Exclamation Something you don't see a 2010 Camaro doing every day...

This is impressive and disapointing. It's disapointing to how sow someone rish there Camaro's engine like this... It's hard to look at.

Isn't that the pre-production one? Look at the headlights and the V6ish lower grille.

With over 400ftlbs of torque there isn't a whole lot of engine strain going on there .

I dont see the issue.. I know when I get one it may end up with a hitch. It will be my only car so if I need to tow anything, Uhaul, Bike Rack, jet ski etc I will only have that one option.
The only issue with towing using a car is usually the frame/body not being up to the job. I dont think the camaro has that issue.

I think its more concerning as to why someone would add a hitch onto the camaro...

I towed one of those with my 2003 Cavalier. I had no other choice. Fontana handled it like a champ so I'm sure the 'Maro could, pre- or post-production.
