Lightbulb Photos from the New England Auto Show

Here are some shots I took at the auto show in Boston last night.
It was my first time seeing the 5th Gen and it looked amazing in person.
Neither of the two cameras that I used were anything special, so don't expect too much.

I was at the auto show today in Boston, very disappointed as the car was surrounded by plexi glass keeping you from getting close. I wanted to sit in it, to see if it felt right, and get an up close look at the inside.

No go, its a friggin auto SHOW, guy said because the car isnt released yet, you could only stare from a distant, wish I had saved the twelve bucks, I have seen more here.

This is turning into quite a bit of aggravation at this point, some of the shine is wearing off, I have already put down a deposit, full of if's, and I dont know's, now were at the look but dont touch stage, geez its just a car isnt it? I sat in an 86k Corvette, but couldnt get near a 30k Camaro, what a drag.

Because they are not production intent yet. Fbodfather said middle of December is when actual production camaro's would be produced for auto shows. I think that's right? Anyone? Father?

There have been a few discussions on this topic previously. Since many of the Camaros (if not all) that are out at these shows used non-production materials (seats, plastics, etc) they don't want people getting in and out of them and causing wear that might make people think it is not a quality car. In addition, the fit and finish in some of the interiors may not be up to snuff and GM doesn't want to send the wrong message. So, therefore, they are trying to keep people out of them until they get production cars out there. They are making production cars right now so it is expected that they will start appearing at shows soon.

Are you saying that what we see now is less than production quality? If what we are seeing now is less than production quality, I can't wait to see "production" quality. These interiors are awesome.......

Yeah they are no where near as good as the finished product should be. These cars where made a while back and are better than the cars the magazines tested but still not the finished product.

k on the fourth picture down the second one of the interior, on the speaker in the door does it say anything like theres like white on there it looks like it may b writing but i dont think it is but what you guys think?

if it's just dust then it must not be production vehicle like camaropete said cuz i dont thinkthey would let dust already be on there and if there is dust on there that must mean its been around for a while so yeah

Was it your flash, or did they actually have the lights on? I am assuming from the looks of it, that it was your flash...

Awesome!! Thanks for the pics!! I can't wait to see one at the Houston show in Jan 09!!

Man that trunk opening is small, small, small!! LOL!! Eh...not like I am going to try and stuff a Plasma screen in there!

Love the color too :-) I take it the V6/RS we see here has a different suspension on it? It sits a little taller it seems to me....more wheel gap?

I think what you are seeing is the reflection of some of the inner parts of the speaker through the grill. Doesn't look like anything written on there to me.

It does look like it is sitting a little higher than some of the other RS ones I have seen. Who knows though. That is another problem with having a bunch of pre-production cars running around. We won't really know for sure until we start seeing the production cars.

Very nice quality pics, thank you.

This car is crazy good looking.

Personally, I LOVE the I.P. speedo / tach binacles.

Give me some fun!

Great pics. On a side note, this is the first time I really noticed the differece in ride height between the FE2 and the FE3 suspension... the V6 is in the nose bleed section!

I couldn't get anyone to open the hood when I was there.
Even when I called him out for telling someone that it had a 6.2 liter in it.

I HATE IT THAT IT IS F**KING ROPED OFF!! Doesn't GM realize that people would like to sit in it and check it out before they buy it!! I know you can do that at the dealership, but COME ON! It wasn't even at the 2008 NAIAS and now since it will be there IT'S GOING TO BE F**KING ROPED OFF!! Why is that?!?!?!?!?!?

Have you actually read this freaking thread???!!!!! Look at the posts above regarding pre-production materials. Then delete your post so you don't feel dumb.
