No bowtie.

I saw these pis of the camaro. People fuss about the location of the bowtie. Well I tell you what. Not having one there makes the car look silly as hell. It is like you took the man hood away from the man. Just went to a scary visual place.

I feel that we should have pride in the manufacturer. I probably won't remove my GM logos, and I may keep the bowtie on the front if the SS doesn't look good in the center.

Replace bowtie with SS badge. Enough said. If you don't know it's a Chevy, you are not a car person...in fact you are not "carworthy".

If they don't know it's a Chevy, I think that this is an opportunity to draw some attention to the Chevy line. That's one reason my bowtie may stay.

The bowtie seems to add contrast to the car, no matter what color the bowtie is, I think it should stay on the nose!

I want the grille insert also. So there won't be a bowtie on mine.

On the regular grille though, it doesn't look right without the bowtie.

I'll leave it the way it is (gold bowtie with SS off to the side). What would you expect from "Old Bowtie"?

did'nt mention before...cars I've owned:

1970 Chevelle (1974 to 1991)
1966 Chevelle (1971 to 2007)

I am seriously considering replacing my bowtie with the Camaro shield if it is not already on the car somewhere.

Can someone photo shop a Camaro badge on to the front of one from the Indy show?
