That's right; we're talking more than an inch of difference - which is do or die for the taller folks.

Some more eye candy.

Sorry no pictures of the sunroof from inside, next time out.

For those concerned, this is the roomiest coupe with a sunroof I know of. I am 6' tall, but I have most of my height in my torso meaning I sit tall, plus I drive with a more upright seat positiion.

Also note, this car has the power driver seat which may offer more up down adjustment than the base seat. But I have no problem from the passenger side either which has the manual seat.

Sorry, I don't have the dimensions for with and without sunroof.

It's their job to report back. Don't be so worried about offending them. We're shelling out 45k for a car froma Company that needs the public behind them. Grow a pair and ask whatever you want.

It's most definitely NOT their job. So any and all respect is expected to be shown towards them. Steve was doing just that.

I haven't thanked you yet, Number 3!

If you're paying $45K for your Camaro you screwed something up real big...

When you add the 21" wheel option you're paying 45k, do the math.

I was a bit worried when everyone kept talking about CGM, Black and Silver since I had ordered red. I started to second guess a bit and my wife said "that's the color you originally wanted and you wanted if for a reason so stick with it." After seeing these latest pictures, she was completely right. This car looks beautiful all shined up!

I doubt you could offend me. Sharing my excitement about this car with a dedicated group of people already passionate about it isn't really hard.

I am not an expert on this car, although I have worked with and met many of the people at that have worked so hard on it. The Product Manager at Chevy is a dear friend of my wife's and we stopped in Phoenix so she could see the car with her parents. My wife worked with fbodfather and we know his passion for this car. I've worked with and met many of the people at Holden as well. I've been excited about this car as an employee as long as you have been as enthusiasts. It is another step in the great products that GM will be bringing out over the next few years. I told some key people over a year ago that if they would just get me one of these early cars, I'd drive it to California and put as many miles as possible on it as I could.

So your excitement is wonderful, but my kicks also come from watching the drivers of Toyotas and Hondas nod and give thumbs up. The guy in the Hyundai Tiburon with his lady friend in the passenger seat taking flash photos at night for 1/2 an hour. Those are the reactions that let me know how special this car is.

So you can ask questions all you want. There are some I can't answer because I don't know, some I can't answer as a GM employee and the ones I can.....well just know that they are my opinion from driving the car.

For me, your excitement is what makes my job really satisfying. The paycheck helps, but I really love your passion and excitement for this car.
