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...
