Seeing this pic makes me think I should drop $30k on a restored '68 instead of a new Camaro. At least I know the '68 would hold it's value for the next 10-20 years. Then again, I'd be more likely to survive an accident in the new Camaro than I would in the '68.

Ugh...anyone got an extra $30k I can have?? I'd rather own both....

Until I saw these pictures I didn't realize how true the new Camaro was in regards to the Gen1 Camaro. Nice job GM, great pics too!

We're lucky. Here in Alabama, no front tag required. Maybe you're governor is a Camaro fan. He'll change the law.

It sucks that I'm prolly going to have to put front tags on mine bc the state of OH is stupid for having that law but otherwise the new camaro takes some very cues from the different years and blends them very nicely and so I love what GM did for this car.

All i can say is that im happy there is actually a large opening for air .I can't tell you how many time i wished the 3rd and 4th gens had better airflow to the Radiator.This means i wont have to drop in a Griffin Racing radiator just to drive around town.

I drove my C6 without a plate for a year and never got pulled over for it.
Even if you do, it's usually a $25 fine or so.

I'll pay the fines until the cops sit outside my house to write me one every day!! I think we all know they have better things to do.

Did anyone else notice that the 68 has a RS grille in it although it's not a RS? The 69 has the back paint on the rear like some of the 375hp 396 had.
My first car was a 68 Matador red with black stripes, Z hood, rear spoiler, Cragar S/S, yellow traction bars, etc... Man I really need to get over her
Instead, I have a Red 2010 on order

Looks better in the head-on shots. The profile pics make the gen 5 look like a candidate for Jenny Craig. :(

It's that the tag is crooked. It's annoying as hell...

I think that the 5th gen makes the other 2 look like candidates for some "anabolics" and a World Gym membership.

You are good, and correct it is not a true RS nor is it an original car. I have made some substaintial improvements to it, way to many to list. I can tell you that the body and frame are original. My intention from the begining was to build a car that I wanted.

I'd still take an old Camaro over the new one! Hands down.
