Number 3 Capture Test Fleet Camaro in California (photos)

I am posting a few of the pictures here. I am reluctant to use Heathers thread as I know she is going to a lot of trouble to keep all of you up to date on her trip South.

Unfortuneately I don't have any of my photo software with me, just my wife's laptop so I had to use crude methods to size them for posting.

Enjoy!!!!

It runs quite well for "just a V6". It is essentially the up level motor from the CTS if that tells you anything, and the Camaro is a bit lighter.

In many respects it is more in every way than I would have thought before spending 30 plus hours driving west. It is more comfortable, more quiet and more fun. No it isn't an SS, but I don't think the customer buying this car will feel one bit dissapointed.

And the sun roof is pretty nice. But of course you lose the ditch in the roof to get it.

The car is a 1LT with some key options. Bluetooth and PDIM are great features. Leather wheel and shifter.

I have always felt fortunate when I have the opportunity to evaluate our early production cars and trucks. It is the final (and perhaps most important) step in making sure they are ready for our customers and in this case a very enthusiastic fan base for this great car. I've had the opportunity to do this for C5 and C6 Corvette's, XLR, Solstice and Sky and more recently the G8 and G8 GXP (which my wife is driving now). So although this isn't my job, my job puts me in a position to evaluate these cars, and yes, I LOVE MY JOB!!!!!!!!!!

Oddly enough, I love the 18 incher's. They look REALLY nice. Thanks to all of those who have the captured fleet vehicles, and are giving us pictures!!

Does the sun roof affect the amount of head room at all? Can you take some pics of the interior ceiling? Interested to see how it looks with the sun roof.

And thanks for the post!!! Now just talk to 1,2,4,5 etc and get them on here

So this car has cloth seats? I'd really love to see some images of that.

All I can say is that I have no problem with headroom in this car.

I sit tall and for comparison, I have to recline the seat in a Cobalt Coupe or Monte Carlo with a sun roof too much to be comfortable.

In this car, I can find my most comfortable seating position and still have some head room.

I have a question. Is a "CTF" tester allowed to tell us a negative about the car here?

Thank you so much Number 3. You are so awesome for sharing this experience with you. Any detailed description of the driving experience would be awesome. I know that you have told us that the V-6 feels more powerful than you expected it to feel -- and that is GREAT feedback. Anything else along these lines would be great.

BTW -- as if the forum wasn't addictive enough, You and Heather have me checking this site even more now.

Hi My Frend, I have a red 2LT ordered and really love the pictures.
I do have one question that so far has not been answered. How are the standard headlights at night????? How do they compare with the HID's? Any need to put SilverStar Ultra's in? Which bulb does the headlights take? Thanks, Geno

The photo's are great!!!! I am on dial up using msntv2 so, the lower kb pictures are much easier to download.

Number3, thanks so much for the pictures and for all the driving experience information from you and Heather. This is almost as good as me having one myself. Ok, well it's not that good, but better than me just dreaming about what it will be like to drive mine!!!

Could you pleas take and post a picture of the iinside of the car looking up to the roof/sunroof area with it both opened and closed. I have a 2LT/RS RJT on order and would like to know how this area looks and if there is a inside cover for the sunroof that is used when the sunroof is close. I also have a 05 Magnum R/T that has a sunroof and when it is clossed there is a sliding inside cover to close that blocks the sun. I live in the Imperial Valley and the summers get a bit warm here and if the sun is just shining through the sunroof the car is going to be Very Hot, so if no sliding cover I may endup having the sunroof feature removed. Thanks in advance.

Walt B.

I think he's talking about the "reverse Mohawk" in the roof.
