There's just too much to try to keep under wraps at the grounds and I've created stress for some great employees there and it was the last thing I ever wanted to do.

So again I apologize but no more tours. :(
Not that I can speak for the guys on the tour with you. But, I'm sure we all hope that no one at your place of work was upset. I'm sure GM feels like it's trying to hold a melting glob of Jello in their bare hands where keeping the camaro info a secret is concerned. We wouldn't want to add to that stress... Hopefully all is well at the proving grounds.

I think that's part of OnStar, being able to route a phone call through the stereo. I believe my dad's Chevy truck had that, but it was a few years ago and my memory's not that great.

'69 Camaro weight 3,105 lbs. per Chassis Service Manual. It would actually be closer to 3,300 lbs. as an L-48 coupe is 3,200 lbs. not counting options like power steering, power brakes, radio, etc. I seem to recall my '69 Z/28 weighing around 3,350 lbs.

wow! awesome! kinda disappointed to hear about the supercharger, but that's just me. i prefer after-market s/c. oh well, good 2 hear about the weight! in a sense, this is a lot more valuable than pics! now the only question is: 3 engines? 4 turbo, 6, 8; 4 turbo, 6, 8 s/c; 6, 8, 8 s/c????? and just cuz they've seen those engines doesn't mean they will all make it to production. just my $.02

For some reason I thought an IRS and LSD were a given for the Camaro. That’s a concern for me, more so the IRS than LSD because you could add an LSD with out a great deal of cost if you wanted it. I already know it to be less agile than my car but I don’t think I could do a live rear axle no matter how good it looked or how fast it was.

Awesome writeup. Felt like I was there... which I shoulda been since I live not too far! Excited hearing about supercharged version and GT500 as benchmark. This virtually says that the top camaro version will be some 500hp monster. Paddle shifters eh, I don't think I remember seeing that on any interior spyshots so far right?
