Toyota's, Honda's, Nissan's, etc. aren't for me. Nothing against those that own one, just not for me.

I'm just saying that a Toyota is a "decently" made vehicle that really keeps its value... When my parents traded both of the trucks, they didn't lose much money at all on either of them.

As the saying goes, "to each their own".

I wasn't trying to argue, or offend, just offering a thought on a subject I feel strongly about.

I hope your parents get many years of enjoyment from their Toyota.

You MUST convert them back to sports cars! Preferably the 5th Gen. Camaro!

They should get a coupe for your Dad, and a 'vert for your Mom!

Either that, or else.....:slice:

The front of the Camaro is perfect, it screams AMERICAN MUSCLE, I have always loved the way the entire car looks, I can't wait to see one in person. Looks like I might be waiting a while.

If you loved the Camaro just from pics, you're going to go ballistic when you see it in person.

As many have said, it is MUCH better looking in person. There are a LOT of angles in pics that I look and think 'urgh, that is not attractive at all', but in person every angle is flawless.

I actually wonder if that is why some people complain about the front end. It's usually the front end that looks bad in pics. Not so in person though.

Picture's DO NOT do the concept justice. It is MUCH better in person!

Whether it's the concept, or the production model, whichever you see first, you won't be disappointed.

Hot Rod Magazine, did an article about the new Camaro in November of '06 Titled(The Camaro You Want). In the last page of the aritcle they showed pictures of what the RS option might look. It had the flip headlights, and led parking lights. That is the best example of what I like. The grill doesn't smile at you so much, and instead of the grill looking like a checker board, it has a simple chrome strip down the middle with an RS emblem in the middle.

Here is a link http://www.pfaffdesigns.com/press/clips/1.html the picture is underneath the orange Camaro. It has a light silver, dark silver, and black Camaro pictured with the RS option.

I know I am not going to make many friends with this comment, but I hated the last 3 years of the F-Body, i thought that they were the uglyest camaro made as well as with the 95-2004 Mustangs. JMO... I LOVE the new look, Nose and all.

I Think Ford, Dodge and Chevy are right on track, I LOVE all the new Muscle cars, I need more Money.

I Will be trading in my C5 Vette on the Camaro, Thats how Much I like it.
I am 45 years old and I am having issues getting out of the vette and it's not as fun as it used to be, I hate it when people look at me as say "ah it's an Old Guy" When my Wife Drives it, "oh it's a hot Chick" hehe just in case shes reading this because the only two people who drive Vettes are Old Guys and Hot Chicks. and I hate being old

hey 2ko5gt...i have to agree with ya. i haven't like the last couple of years of the camaro. they just looked very very plain....hence the reason why i went with the firebird. But this concept camaro is just flawless looking!

the front end i didn't like so much when i saw it...but now i like it. it screams muscle car. And the best part is...it looks as though it's pissed off and ready to kill any mustang that's in front of it!

I originally really wanted some hideaway headlights, but after seeing a few photoshopped pics I'm certain that I want the standard ones. Not that the flip-ups look all that bad, just I greatly prefer the non hidden ones

Nope...Me too...

"hey, Camaro - you bitch! Eat a little too much, did ya?" says Mustang, refering to Camaro's weight.

*Camaro revs engine in anger*

"Ooooh, scary rev!!" says Mustang

*Mustang revs engine, but it sounds like a big V6, so he blushes*

*Camaro slaps the spit out of Mustang, then stares down the Challenger; and wins*

I am convinced that the production car will look alot different, even the nose will change. Take for instance the Charger Concept

and look what we got.

Though I agree with you on the examples you've shown, Chevrolet and GM in general have a very good reputation for bringing concepts to production with very minimal change.

AND. regardless of that, There have been confirmed reports by many memebers of GM (Ed Peper, Bob Lutz...etc.) stating that they have seen the production model, and we won't be able to tell the difference. I trust them on that 100%.
Obviously the mirrors, and the tire size, and possibly the headlights (mechanically), but other than that, the Production Camaro stays true to the Concept.

Meaning: The nose will NOT change...
