Camaro at 2009 St. Louis Auto Show

Hey guys, quick question...

I noticed that the 2010 Camaro is shown here (5th picture from the left) as being shown at the upcoming St. Louis Auto Show, subject to change of course. What are the odds that we'll be getting something other than the red fiberglass car?

I go to school a few hours away, and whether or not something besides the red fiberglass model will be there will pretty much make my decision whether to head back for the weekend or not.

TIA

to the best of my knowledge, there will be one there. it's listed on the show schedule anyway. if by 'red fiberglass car' you're talking about the red concept, they ain't had that one out in a while, especially since the production models have been hitting the shows.

ps - welcome to the site

Folks,

I have been in contact with Scott (Fbodfather) concerning the St. Louis show. There will be a new Camaro there for us "St Louisians" to drool over and admire up close and personal.

I have no information on the color or model as I'm sure Scott will bring what is available!

If I get any new info, I will share with you. (Or maybe Scott will post here if he gets a breather)

See you at the show!

Good question. I emailed the promoters of the local show in Denver coming in a few months and they said its up to Chevrolet. So far they could only confirm the Transformers Car was coming. I would personally love to see the SEMA cars. Good luck!

I wish I could make it. I'm going to try to make the KC Auto Show, so I'd like to chat with Number 3, HeatherR, JohnnyCamaro, and fbodfather and buy some lunches for you guys if I can. At the very least, I'd want to express my gratitude for your hard work on this project—from testing to development to convincing GM to make the car in the first place.

Josh, I have asked Scott that question on about every thread I felt it was appropriate. No response. I know he asked not to be smothered by PM's about auto shows so I have not done that. He seems to respond at random to members questions so maybe he'll respond to you. Would you find out for those of us in Houston if there will be a production camaro here when the show starts a week from today, January 24th!

I know I am not the only one that would like to find this out. If that question has been answered somewhere on here, I missed it and apopogize in advance for my error.

Many thanks if you will!!

I don't like to post 'which' Camaros will be at which shows -- because it constantly changes -- (if you could only see the excel spreadsheet that we have to maintain to schedule:

>ZR1
>Camaro Pre-production
>Camaro Non-saleable
>Camaro SEMA
>2010 Equinox
>Concept cars
>CTS-v
>CTS Sportwagon
>2010 SRX
>Volt
>Volt Chassis
>Converj
>Silverado Hybrid
>Equinox Fuel Cell
>CTS Coupe
>Cruze
>Orlando
.........plus a whole bunch of other vehicles --

...................did I mention that I cover 66 shows?

It doesn't help people in the midwest, but Scott did tell me over a month ago there will be a Camaro at the Portland show first week of February. Too bad i'm working in Colorado and won't get to see it. It still looks like the first 2010 Camaro I ever see will be the one I own.

Hey. drool over them at Londoff, but don't buy there. They were my first stop for preodrering and I was pretty much told to expect to pay over MSRP. They will put them out for bid, and the highest bidder will get them. I left!

If you need on to buy or preorder, go to Elcho on Manchester. Talk to Pat Stroker. He will set you up, and it will be MSRP (maybe lower down the road). He's a really cool guy. Tell'em Sean sent you

Well I'm bummed out.....I have to fly to DC for work in the morning and won't be back to STL until the 5th.

For those of you who get to go, please take some good pics and report back here on how the show was.

At least I had the chance to sit in NUMBER3's red camaro when he came through town so I know that the interior (well at least the cloth) will be comfortable. If they have a leather interior there to sit in, let me know how it compares.

Also, can someone get some good pics of the dash, stereo console area, rearview mirrow and any controls that might be on the roof above the rearview?

Have a great time!! If you get the chance, that Scott for taking care of us here in St. Louis!!

I will definitely take some pics. I only hope I can get inside the car to get the shots you want. Have a safe trip to DC.
