FBodFather,

Is this why some of us keep saying the roof line looks to be taller?

Also, as much as I'd rather not disagree with you (don't want to get black listed from buying my 5th gen), I truly feel that these leaks do help all of us. With the positive reaction being what it is. GM will gain from our fanatical response and we get just a little more nurishment in our camaro starved lives.

Please don't send the suburbans...

I can't wait to....

Keep the faith!!!
Fbodfather, while its upsetting that someone from the inside snapped this shot and leaked it, you have to be happy that this shot and the camo pics help to steal some thunder from the Dodge Challenger.

Its nice to know that GM is looking at our reaction and hearing what we like and what we are concerned about. Its very reassuring.

And Fbodfather, although I can't speak for everyone, I trust you.

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!

Finally! something to keep us going, is the production version officially going to be at Detroit this year? I'm very happy with how this version looks...even if the photo is crappy its good enough for me to see that the concept I fell in love with a few years ago...is still there...and even better... soon to be buyable

Oh wow...

I'm a long time lurker, never had the nerve to post here but after fbodfather's posting about the leak... I had to. Excuse my ramblings and then I'll get to the leaked photo....

I was never a muscle car guy, my friends always were and I would just listen when car talk came about. Just living my ordinary life, paying bills and just moving through life slowly. Then the Transformers movie came out and I saw the Golden (yellow) chalice of existence called the Concept Camaro (Bumblebee). I could not stop talking about the car after the movie. Seriously.

Like the Hulk, massive amounts of adrenaline pump through my veins when I read through the posts... everyone else feels the same!... my life has been altered by the new Camaro. I have a black JADA model at my office, I have the poster of it and I see it every morning. People walk by my desk telling me how wicked the car looks and saying, "I didn't know you were into cars?". I always reply... "I wasn't until the new Camaro shot 100,000,000 watts of electricity into my heart."

To be honest, I'd say it's more like 98% of the people love the concept, the women around the office even talk about the camaro cuz of me. The day I pull up to my work's parking lot in one... I just go nuts in anticipation!

As "bad" as the lighting and angle were on this leaked photo, I stared at my computer for like 10 minutes. My co-worker had to punch me to snap me out of it. It's so beautiful. You brought a non-car fan into your circle GM and I thank you now for the enjoyment your car will bring to me for a very long time. I trust you fbodfather but it's just so painful not have the Camaro now.

Answer: Take her to the track!

I can't wait to see the offical production shots.

Is there a date when the production Camaro will be shown? NAIAS 2008 seems a bit early since it will still be a year away at that point.

From all of the pics it does seem the rear fenders and rocker panels have lost a fair amount of flaring which I really liked on the concept.

I'll be reserving jusdgement until full pics, performance specs and pricing have been announced.

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 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.

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.

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 ...

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!
