I went with vinyl just in case I ever want them removed.

Who did you get the 45th fender emblems from?

How many other (regular) camaros do you see on a daily basis?
hrmm...not as many as mustangs. i see so many mustangs in dallas it's ridiculous. but camaros...i see a few per week. not every day, but my commute is literally 1 mile. i only see a few camaros that people take care of, if you know what i mean (clean, waxed, etc.). most of them seem to just be like every other car on the road

Gm parts direct. I don't remember the part# off hand but I can get it for you if you want it. It was about $50 for 2 delivered. Let me know.

it seems really bright, like brighter than the hood stripe. is that the case, or are my eyes deceiving me?

Nope must be the angle of the picture. Matches almost 100%.

Thanks for the info Austin. I'm thinking about getting the two stripes over the driver's wheel well. The two chevron stripes is what I'm talking about. I'd do it in vinyl of course. What do y'all think about that? It think it'd be cool to add a little diversity.

Not trying to be mean, but something about your signature makes my computer freeze up every time I scroll down and see it. It has happened at least a dozen times.

Work's fine for me, it's just a regular signature picture block just like the one in my sig.

It might be the website he's hosting the picture on. That could certainly be the problem.

The only one I've ever seen, in the Austin, Tx. area, is the one I'm driving.

Its too bad too. My wife will always know if it really was my car she saw parked at the girlie bar.

North of France

Pretty simple, Chevrolet officially import the Camaro since september.

The dark side of this good news is the price of fuel (2,03$/liter) and tax (5600$)
Whatever ... the passion is bigger than that
And I've heard that Chevrolet is really surprised by the amount of Camaro sold in France in such a short time !

You guy just don't understand. The problem is that she always wants to go with me and then she spends half of my 'fun' money. Sucks to be me. (Not)

That seems so weird to me. I always thought that the French, in general, didn't like anything American. I guess I watch too much TV.

Maybe the French are lovin' it because the car is assembled in Canada?
We have 2 official languages in Canada...English and French.
LOL
but nice to see the Camaro as a worldclass sports car.

I think you're wrong, at least a little
Like each country, the USA have good things and bad things ... but it's the same for France!
In fact, we don't like G.Bush and other things but it's not a reject of everything that is american.

For exemple when I drive my Camaro, people are really positive about her : children, guys, girls ... only old people seem to think "Don't care!" ^^
No bad feedback at all.
Ok, sometime they think it's a Mustang

For this american muscle car assembled in Canada, I think it's more of a bad point than a good
