I'm sorry. I am not on this thing 24/7 and I don't read every single post that is written and then document how many times a certain subject has been mentioned. However, if I do recall, there are folks that go nuts everytime they see where the gas cap is. And actually, I could give a damn where the gas cap is, but the headlights and front end better seduce me.

Tran, how about just keep the Camaro5 the way it is and change North American Chevrolet Camaro Fans to Camaro5 - Where headlights are not production...or Where headlights come from Autozone...

They piss me off more every day, first they make the mirrors bigger, then they add a B pillar, then they tell everyone its gonna be a 2010 model and not an 09, then the gas cap gets moved, then they mess with the headlights, and where did that cowl hood go?? before we know it its gonna have a ford badge on it

In the last 2 months I count atleast 3 times Scott has mentioned the headlights.

I try to get on and post before anything, that "those are not production spec headlamps"...I failed this time. Shame on me.........

Just remember what's repetitive to us, is new to somebody else - so don't be TOO harsh on those who don't know yet.


Oh - AND FREAKING AWESOME PICS!!!!!

That's part of engineering validation for pretty much ANY vehicle (even on down to Cobalt, etc.) because it's a good way to hook up a trailer (usually a U-Haul box) and subject mules to the most strain they can...especially in heat and cold.

Not that something like a Camaro will then ever have a tow rating, etc., but it's a good way to stress them to the max for testing, and make sure they can handle it.

I'll do it with some of the other smileys I'm working on... I might even do a smiley with one of the mule cars and have this guy pointing at the head lights holding a sign that says "Not the real headlights"

Edit:

You can find and vote on the new smiley here.

Maybe there should be a quote from Fbodfather under the pictures in the first post. Just a thought.

I am on 3 waiting lists at 3 different dealerships and i have been for over a year and I love camaros just as much as anyone here, i have owned 3 and it doesn't matter what the new camaro looks like cause i am still gonna own one , ok I will stop with the headlights I didn't know, but for the rest of the stuff i listed its perfectly legit stuff to complain about. I don't like it when people jerk us around and keep changing stuff along with the production year.

Wow...I normally don't get excited about a car....

Does anyone know where they are doing more testing. I am dying to get ahold of some footage to add to our website?!?!!??!? I am in California and the closest a prototype has been to me is LA. Any heads up on this would be huge.

Thanks

Anyone else notice that the driver has a bit of opposite-lock going on in the last picture? He's obviously giving it a little something to slide around the corner...

Overall, really great pics..

Dang these pics keep getting better! True story, my dad used to tow his boat(not that big) with his 3rd gen and now tows a small trailer with his 4th gen when he needs to and has towed a few loaded 6X10 trailers LOL.

Those mufflers... too big, but were gonna be swapped out anyway.

WOOHOO LED 3rd brakelight!!!

I definitely think everyone should put the headlight quote in their sig or better yet the first post someone should put big BOLD letters that say they are not production.

Hmmmm, I wonder where these pics came from? not from Jalopnik? Tran, are you in Sweeden?
