Wow thanks to ChrisL and fbodfather for sharing what they can share at this point! I've read the original post a couple times over and still get goosebumps when I visualize what Chris was describing!! The countdown is getting closer for sure, but no easier!

I wish I could go to Indy, but I'll be happy enough with the info I hear and see. It will just make that day when I buy mine even better.

Now, I'd rather see the pix online and save my cash for a downpayment.



On the other hand, this post just about made ME well up with tears! I could almost see it and feel it walking out to the "vettes" only to see the Camaros. Ugh...and to get the opportunity to drive them?!?! I'd bet anything that V6 manual is not only as fast as the 4th Gen Z28 (mayyyybe a few hp shy), but even cooler, is that I bet that manual is a 6spd.

Man, I couldn't even fathom the excitement. I probably would have gotten myself sick and given myself migranes from all the excitement...lol. You increadibly lucky folks. I'm so increadibly happy for ya'll.
I did tell ya'll that Autoblog inside info is usually spot on. I hear your pain, although for those of us that can't get to Indy, that isn't really bad news.

As an edit...I'd have given my left nut to be there and see the Camaro on the track. I'm serious...I'm done with kids. Scott are you listening?? Put it up on your mantle to show all what someone is willing to do to be part of history.

I don't think anyone wants that on their mantle. Maybe a 1/24 diecast of the new Camaro, but I would bet Scott would pass on the testicle.

I'm speechless. Dunno what to make of all this commotion between the controversy and the great visual I have in my head from ChrisL's post.

I just would like to know if the opening in the hood will be functional on any of the models. I wouldn't think that would be something that is top secret.

Unfortunately, that's way too deep.

This is a poker game and GM is not ready to show any of it's cards, yet.

Spy photos and videos show what looks like an open scoop on some prototypes. We made it clear we want it functional or gone in our feedback to the Camaro team.

I'm just posting to participate in the thread. I'm unable to comprehend what that must have been like. I'm truly at a loss for words. Congratulations to all who were there.

I repeatedly think about the moment I see my ordered mid-level V8 Camaro at the dealership for the first time.

As for the second part of this post... I'm joking.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the report. I'm glad everyone had a good time! I have seen a group photo of the ones who attended...... they all were smiling!

The image is a bit grainy, but I wasn't UP for taking a better shot of them. Scott, you'll have to figure out how to mount them but I got them in the jar for you. Hard work is done.



Edited for clarification - There were no real Camaro lovers hurt in the making of that image.

Gang, I cant take credit for the initial post.

I had my laptop with me at the apple juice stand when we all got back to the hotel. Fbodfather actually did all the typing, cutting and pasting.

Thanks to you and Father for posting some more information and teasers. All this passion is very reassuring to see; I'm sure we're going to get the car most of us have been looking for.
