Just give me the bowtie and I'll be happy!!

Edit: ok, ok...I see the cutout for it...whew

And for those that didn't read the Fastlane blog...that most likely won't be the final headlamp design (not that it's bad, just not used to it)

I want this car now!!!

This just in: Spotted on The GM test track, this early, preproduction Camaro Coupe. The new Camro is quickly evolving into final form, but some of the details you see here (such as the headlamp design) may change before production begins this year. -Alicia Dorset, blog editor gmblogs.com
Please..Please..don't let those be the headlights.

The car looks great!

Thumbs up

OMG I think I need to change my pants.... too much excitement!

That photo really does alot for helping to bring a more complete view of the work in progress. I absolutely love the lines, and the hood looks sleek and tough. The grill is exactly what I'd hoped it might be, and the lights look like they are the perfect shape and set just right into the grill.

mmmmmmmmm zesty!!

Looks pretty good to me. Headlight look a little strange to me for some reason but maybe they need to grow on me some. Overall, I think the car looks nice and it wont be hard to spice up a bit.

Edit: I just took a second look and they already look better to me for some reason.

I'm really hoping for the 'Angel eyes' headlamps that were seen in many of the concept shots.

I'm with the folks who thought this was the v6 trim, because the insert on the upper valance looks solid. But overall, me likey.

I know it may not be finished, but I'm happier with the choice of 4 headlights than the concept's 2. Looks good, and speaks to the '93-'97 Camaro I hold so dear in my heart I'm glad to see a black surrounding area too.

That is one beautiful car! I can't wait to get one even more now!!!

I kinda' like the headlights because it doesn't scream retro' to me, like the rest of the car. I've always wanted a '69 anyways, so I don't mind that it looks like one (to me) so I think the headlights are a tasteful way to maybe distinguish this car. I like the concept car highlights better, but these are very nice.

JMHO

This is awesome! The front helps make up my mind. The air intake is there even though it's not punched through. This grille isn't right though. I like the egg crate of the concept better, but I'm sure it will look better with the real headlights, HID Projector with halo's please! Also, from this angle, I think it's safe to say the rear side vents won't be cut out!

Please make the vents and RAM air functional. Not sure about the head lights just yet... Not bad but not sure.

So very happy with the rest of it. I kinda like it without the bowtie... But the rest of the driving world should have to see that kick your @$$ car in your rear view getting ready to blow by you is a CHEVY!!! So, they better have it on there....

WELL DONE!!!

This car definitely looks a lot better from the front than it does from the rear. I really hope the air intake and the side vents are cut out. It just looks too much like a toy with them there but not cut all the way through.

I agree with what someone else said a while back: "Either cut them out, or don't have them at all". But I really think they add a lot to the awesomeness of the car, so please just cut them through.

I realize those of us that really want them can get them cut out ourselves later, but I don't want the overall impression of the new Camaro to include dent-vents.
