This is Awesome! I've been cruising around 4 different Camaro sites, and the GM fastlane blogs; NOT ONE NEGATIVE COMMMENT so far, besides the odd "please cut this out, and what are those lights" That's so great!!!

Definitely gorgeous.... I'm still not happy though until I know what engine they're gonna use. :P By the way.... I'm leaving Iraq in 3 weeks and I just bought me a 2000 GMC Denali at a good price. Can't wait to pick it up. :P

that car is BEAUTIFUL! where do I sign? oh, wait, wife's getting one... where does she sign?

I really do think that those are the headlights that Scott warned us about... so I'm betting they are slightly different when we see the production car... but all in all, I am VERY pleased... VIVA LA MUSCLE CAR ERA!

The front of the car looks meaner than the concept. Like alot of people here, I really like the headlights the way they are set up in the picture. Adds a more sinister look.

But looking at the picture, the one thing I'd like to see change is put slightly wider tires on this car. The jalopnik camo pics mentioned that the mules were using 245/45/20 rubber. Make it 255/40/20 all the way around. Then the car will look alot more robust and aggressive, and accentuate the hips better. I hope Scott is taking notes.

I am SO struggling with the headlights. I like the concept cuz it looked like it was scowling at you. Kinda saying I'm back and I'm pissed. The dual lights don't say the same thing. They are cool just not sure what it does to the cars disposition?

Does that make sense...

Absolutely makes sense.

I think the halos are the best light setup for it to have the right "disposition".

If you look at the grille around the lamps, you can just barely make out the rounded seem for the bigger, rounded lamp like on the concept.

I'm sure Fbodfather will say a word or two once everything settles down, but to all those worrying about the headlights... Weren't we forwarned about this?

" ..hey Joe - go run down to the local autoparts store and grab us a buncha headlamps and then go hot-glue 'em in place on those Camaro mules over there!!!!".........headlamps.............
So reading that, and some of the comments, I find it really funny - though not a bad thing, that more than a few folks actually like the 'horrible' headlights!

I was just thinking the same thing. I was wondering what Scott must be thinking about all the comments on the headlights.

However, since GM themselves are the ones who released this pic, these may be those production lamps that weren't ready before.

I'd definately like to see the concepts lights on there. I agree with how they seem to impart a certain attitude to the car. I've always like the kinda' Halo that BMWs have had and hope the concepts carry over.

Time will tell...

Same thought. I'm thinking there's a chance that anything we see at this point could be final/available.

Along this line. Do we know that the design is final? Or are there some decisions yet to be made, lights, vents, gas cap. I guess my point is, are they still making these decisions and we may sway them if they're listening, or are we in the wishful thinking phase and what's done is done?

I'd think that most of the decisions are made, but they want the public to fall in love with this car, so if they get an overwhelming response that something needs to change, I'm sure they will take it into consideration. It is certainly not too late for them to do something about it.

I think things can still change for the next few months, until probably the start of summer, just nothing too radical

I don't think people are 'worrying' so much as just commenting.
