Absolutely. And thank you.

IMO seeing it with real 1st Gen Camaro's just shows how non-retro the 5th Gen really is.

Retro-inspired cues yes, but it really has only a passing resemblance to it's predecessors.

I think they made it as retro as they could for 2009.

My comment wasn't a complaint by any means. I'm not a big fan of the whole retro thing at all really. I think the fact that they managed to design a vehicle that looks 100% new, but still has a couple touches that give it a retro 'flair' is fantastic.

it's definitely better than just recreating the 1970 model, only heavier & having the same interior as 2 or 3 other current sedans

Seeing this pic makes me think I should drop $30k on a restored '68 instead of a new Camaro. At least I know the '68 would hold it's value for the next 10-20 years. Then again, I'd be more likely to survive an accident in the new Camaro than I would in the '68.

Ugh...anyone got an extra $30k I can have?? I'd rather own both....

Until I saw these pictures I didn't realize how true the new Camaro was in regards to the Gen1 Camaro. Nice job GM, great pics too!

We're lucky. Here in Alabama, no front tag required. Maybe you're governor is a Camaro fan. He'll change the law.

It sucks that I'm prolly going to have to put front tags on mine bc the state of OH is stupid for having that law but otherwise the new camaro takes some very cues from the different years and blends them very nicely and so I love what GM did for this car.

All i can say is that im happy there is actually a large opening for air .I can't tell you how many time i wished the 3rd and 4th gens had better airflow to the Radiator.This means i wont have to drop in a Griffin Racing radiator just to drive around town.
