I'll try to get some shots from straight on of the back and the front with my digital camera. Any other areas people are interested in?

I don't like that look the way it is carried out here, I do think it would have looked nice if they had done it like the first gen. Rally wheels with the wheel painted silver, chrome center cap and chrome beauty ring.

Come on Guys..

It's a Base model car, you people are just spoiled with your big ole $4,000, 22" Billet Rims and rubber band tires.

At least it dosen't have dog dish hubcaps like the 69 Base and Copo came with....

The wheels are better than a plastic hubcap, like my first Camaro ('94 base V6) had on them.

They just don't look right at all IMO, totally ruins the look of the car....... I'm glad I have already seen an LT and SS in person and can see past the wheels. If this was my first time seeing the car in person, I don't know if I would be overly impressed. I know its a base model, but damn they could have done better than that......Hell, I would take salad shooters over those things

The good news is my 1SS/RS won't have them.......

They should've had an RS equipped car there..... The general public who has never seen this car might get a bad impression seeing those wheels. I don't like them at all. I'm sure some do, but to each their own.

Guys please remember that this is still a preproduction model and they have made some changes, mostly interior, so we dont know if these wheels will come out for sure.

I will try and take more pictures when i go back to work after Christmas. ToddyC when you come in I can take pictures of the front and rear for you as the stage kinda restricts all angles for pictures from where the guests can stand. I cant take them on my phone or own camera in costume per Disney policy, but i can take them for a guest

Its actually not on one of the turn tables.. Once you get off the ride and walk into the show room its on display off to the right. Its a permanent display for better viewing rather than the 30 or so seconds the turntables allow.

Well we're actually just happy we got one in at all, so beggars cant be chosers. If it was up to me it would be a Rally Yellow 2SS/RS, maybe with the high wing on it and the rally stripes. We're just lucky we got one at all.

The gas cap is actually plastic and the rear quarter panel is metal so the pain set differently on each material. To my knowledge they have fixed that and the paint will match in the production vehicles.

P.S. if you want to see the Camaro without/before going on the ride, just walk in through the gift shop into the show room and then get in line after you wet yourself

Geez, and to think - I thought they were kidding about the old-skewl steel rally-style wheels....they WERENT!!!


Awesome!!!!!

One more choice for the true track gear-heads to set their 'Maro apart from the others.

GM has (almost) ALL the bases covered with this thing!!

I hope they sell "Billions" of them!!!



Ya, it's old and tired. but........nobody ever accused me of having taste, or relevance.

I love this car..but my LS will be white...I might paint the steelies green...(hate me now) photoshop anybody?? But the green I might be painting them is a unique shade of green. Its on my rescue squads 2006 GMC C5500 4x4 rescue truck. Its a color that has been with my squad for 55 years. Ill try to post a pic of my rescue truck so yall know what I'm talking about..

Car looks great. Although the wheels aren't for me, I think they look good for a base car and I can appreciate the look they were going for. I guess I'm making a trip to Orlando this weekend!

Just think guys, you buy the LS and get the steel wheels, well it won't feel so bad as having to replace those Fancy rims that come on the LT and RS and SS if you want to upgrade, plus you have a spare set that you can put snow tires on and not ruin your good (expensive) rims in the winter...
By the way If you damage one of the steel ones I am sure it will be less expensive to replace than one of the other Rims. My first Sky I had to replace one of the chrome rims and it cost.. Hold on to your hat.. $750.. for just ONE!

Ah, I know exactly where you are talking about. That's where that funky electric car of the future was. Very cool. However, that area can attract quite a crowd as it is right at the ride's exit, so it might be a little crowded there.

To each their own regarding the steelies....personnally it's like an ugly baby...only something that a mother could love.

and I like the 1st Gen steelies....with this being a "pre-pro", guess the right thing to do is cut The General some slack until a production model is photographed.

Josh!!! You da man! Wish this had been there when I was there over Halloween but such is life.

THANK YOU for taking, posting, and helping others get pics to feed our "addiction" to the new Camaro.

Which is exactly why I'm speaking up about it. I'm not slamming anyone at GM, just offering some constructive criticism Input from enthusists like ourselves will be one of the many reasons this car is sucessful. If I see something that makes me throwup in my mouth a little bit, I'm gonna tell you about it!!!! Not because I'm trying to be mean, its because I believe that you can do much better Example....remember when we first found out there would not be a blue color available on the SS model????? Fixed that real quick now didn't we.........

Looking at the larger picture....... If the only complaint I have with this car is with the wheels on the base model, you know GM is on to something truely special.

No thats not quite it..lol Once you enter the show room where there is a small stage thats raised about 8" or so off the ground off to the right. Its right next to the Information Booth.. We used to have the Richard Petty Race car there, before that was a tricked out GMC Acadia and boat, before that we had a Pontiac Vibe and G8 that we were giving away, and the Petty Car again (in case anyone has been there in the past year..lol)

If some one still doesnt know what im talking about just walk straight into the show room, once you get into the center of the room just stop and turn right.. you'll see it
