That show sounds interesting. I would probably watch it even if there wasn't a Camaro in it. As for Chevrolet Camaro Martin, his parents could have given that kid a worse name: Ford Mustang Martin

Did they choose the color of the Camaro, and if so, why no stripes? Just curious..

No joke. It's blasphemy for there to be a non GM vehicle as KITT. Though I do love Val Kilmer's voice lol. They should have gotten a pre-pro Camaro and fabbed it up to look like a next gen Trans Am!

That is an awesome design, I really hope GM decides to use this as the model for how the Pontiac Firebird should look like using the Zeta platform.. That even looks better than the new Camaro in my opinion...

I believe it's because silver will be the lead color -- it highlights all of the edges and styling of the car - that most other colors cannot.

Stripes imply "muscle car" -- and while we (that's the 'collective' you and me)
love muscle cars, many people do not like that connotation -- thus you'll be seeing a lot written about the V6 model --

The SS will prove itself at the track!

I'm partial to blues and blacks, but silver makes total sense if you want to show off all those beautiful curves. I'm not sure I can recall another car that has as many curves and lines as this one, except maybe the 'Vette. I'm hoping the blue will highlight many of the lines of the car.

Hopefully this show does well. I had a coworker come into work the other day say she'd seen a preview for a new show that looked good, and proceeded to describe My Own Worst Enemy.

So hopefully it's going to appeal to many others as well.

I'm a self-proclaimed Television-Whore so I'll be watching it for sure (along with many many more hours of tv per week).
