I agree. I don't see it so much as a 'bad angle' as it being fuzzy, bad lighting, etc. As he stated, the bras in the front and rear still trick the eye, despite no cow spots on the body. And the fact that it doesn't have a final paint job.

This picture hasn't changed my opinion on the car one bit. It's still going to be a beautiful vehicle. (Ok, so I said I'd change the side mirrors, but I can have that done aftermarket if I really want. LOL)

MOST of the reactions I've read have been positive, or took into account the fact that it's not a good pic.

I love it. Nicely done thus far.

Now just deliver mine in Silver on Christmas Eve night with a big red bow on top to my driveway please.

Let me add one more to my pile of Good comments, for Fbodfather, and the Camaro crew's pleasure of course:

I'm lovin the inverted Mohawk on the roof. If that was the only body line on the car, it would set it apart from all the other cars on the road. I see 30% of the aggresiveness of the car spouting from that single feature. And I am unbelievably happy that it has been kept up to this stage. Too many cars nowadays, (cough) Mustang, Challenger (cough):p have bland, smooth, roofs.

Oh, and although I loved seeing another pre-production shot (, I mean really loved)...Truth be told, I'm never over-excited when an 'illegal' spy shot is released. That's not cool.

one last thought...Scott, I'm shocked at you! You find it pleasing that even a bad photo of you're car has caused uncontrollable, and most likely fatal bleeding from one of our member's heads? Imagine what the official release photos are going to do to more people!

Photo I edited last night posted then removed for consideration of this site. Here you can seee all the fine details that we loved on the concept (with the exception of the contours on the roof) are all still there:

I still see the mohawk in that pic. Along with all the other points of interest. Cool DerScotsman.

I agree, too many car manufacturers underestimate the importance of the roof of the car. Granted, very few of us will be flying around in helicopters looking down on the Camaro, but it's not like these cars are ten feet tall either. The roof of any car is visible from a standing position, and the Camaro's sloping roof will be visible even from a sitting positing.

The inverted Mohawk on the Camaro is one of my favorite features, but it's just one of the many things that make this car the object of so many dreams.

The 'fbodfather' has spoken. "So it is written, so shall it be done."

I trust you. I already love the car, and I know my reaction to the production version will be like the first time I saw my wife.

I actually thought the pic that started this thread was only decent at best and didn't reveal very much, so I wasn't making any assumptions. The photo is what it is -- taken in bad lighting, out of focus, at a bad angle, etc., and it's not the final production version. Still, something is better than nothing when it comes to spy photos, I suppose.

True Camaro fans like myself, that already love the car, will love the version they see in the showrooms because we've been patiently waiting for this day for many years now. Soon I will have the new Camaro parked in the garage next to ...

Don't worry -- I won't blacklist you!

You are correct in that leaks get most of you very excited ...(and I'm LOVING some of the comments.....)

The real problem is that when something leaks that we have no control over, the picture is invariably a bad one..........(think of the Silver leaked photos in December of 2005....) You will recall that the Silver picture was of a 'clown-suited' car -- where each side was styled differently.........we actually had some people say "....Duuuuuuuuuude! I don't want a car where the front bumper doesn't match!!!"...........and thus, as we see with this picture -- some are jumping to conclusions that the car has gotten bigger or fatter or has been made to be much milder........ It's simply a very bad shot!

Soooooo........you're safe from the black Suburbans -- and while I'm upset that someone leaked this particular photo -- I'm elated that so many of you are so pumped!
Thanks, this is what I wanted to hear....THANKS!

thank you for all your kind words!

Interesting: someone asked me what it was like to drive Bumblebee around the track in Nevada -- and my reaction CONTINUES to be that it reminds me of driving my 1970 Chevelle MANY years ago! (NOT the handling -- but the view thru the windshield.......)

Sooooooooooooo--- if you're loving the view out of your 70 SS (which looks killer by the way ....) you're gonna love the Camaro!

Official release or unauthorized leak, this has generated mostly positive excitement, so personally I think, in this case at least, it's a good thing.

Save the black suburbans for the accountants that nixed the Camaro in 2002 and for anyone who questions this car's existence in the future.
