I dont like the stripes on left front fender. This is a Camaro SS, NOT a Challenger RT.

That style of stripe is actually derived from Gran Sport stripes most notably used on Corvettes in the early 90's. The Challenger may have been copying someone. But I agree, they're distasteful for the Camaro.

I anticipate seeing the Ducktail spoiler myself, hopefully it's a little more reminiscent of a true 1969 Camaro spoiler than GM's current offerings. The grille sounds interesting too.

This car NEEDS the Chevy bow ties to be RED, the gold color looks bad.

It was Scott I met, and like I stated I only caught part of what he was saying. Someone please tell me if they caught the conversation.

+1. I've been saying all along about how nice it would be if our SS's were like the 4gens and we had SLP items from the factory and SLP #'s.

did you notice it said "ALL sold orders" ?

meaning the ~30,000 sold orders should be made/delivered by the end of July.

4 months to make that many somewhat custom cars is awesome

Wow -- I love the way I'm misquoted......

I did not say that we'll build every sold order by June or July -- I said that we'd LIKE to get them all built by then and that we're doing what we can to schedule them as quickly as possible.........

........for two VERY good reasons:

>1. ...WE NEED THE MONEY!!! (a bit trite, but true!)

>2. ...We want you behind the steering wheels of your new Camaros -- you kept the faith -- so we want you in 'em -- and we also know that you are some of our best salespeople!


As to the front 'hash marks' on the left front fender -- that's a Tom Henry Racing signature from the 4th gen THR Camaros --

Well that cleared that up! Thanks for the clarification. We appreciate it, without you things would be that much more crazier. Can you immagine?:bangdesk::cry : It wouldn't be pretty! Thanks again!
