NAIAS Detroit - My Impressions + pics n vids

I know everybody's probably sick of NAIAS pics by now, but it doesn't matter... some may not have seen it all .

So, after spying on pics here for the past 7 months, I finally got a chance
to get in and see it in person. And let me say, for all of those who think they have seen it through pics, it's WAY better in person... hold your judgement until you see it 1st hand. The first thing that jumped out at me was the size of those brembos... huge.

The fit and finish of the interior is pretty good, I like the way the seats feel and it had plenty of leg/head room for me at 6'2". I'm not so sure I like the vinyl stripes though... I think I'd rather have them painted. I won't be able to get one until 2012'ish anyway, so we'll see what GM is offering by then.

The car looks a whole lot more aggressive in person... don't ask me how though. We showed up at opening so we could get a look but some people had already beat us there... regardless, I was still able to get in and get plenty of pics/vids of outside of car. I didn't have a chance to get any pics of the inside as I didn't want to be holding up the line of people waiting to get in.

I did post a few of the vids on youtube. This one in particular is of the spokeperson's dish about the car: here. There are a couple of other vids too if you just look at my other vids on youtube. I have these recorded in full 1920x1080 HD, however, when trying to format for youtube's version of HD, it didn't work out... so sorry in advance about the quality.

Also - high res pics on my flickr account: here

This car is SWEET ... At one point, my wife was even saying... "Oh let's get that one" about the black concept. It looks like it's a great car... and I hope it's a big success for GM.

I think the coolest part was seeing how many people were lined up to see the car around noon when we left... that without having a flashy display, like the Mustang's. We were talking to the rep, brian, and he said that he had seen the line to get into the car extend well past what it was at when we were there. (PS - Tag, he says he's meet you )

Anyway, hope this is worthwhile for some.

Yes! Very nice pics. You've got to love that Nikon too! I noticed there are a couple of pics numbers missing out of your lineup when you were photographing Camaro Black. Did you happen to snap one of the inside? The door was not open when I was there and I'm wondering if it's any different. Thx.

NBC had some nice coverage today of the Detroit Auto Show. Too bad the end was with the Challenger and not the Camaro

Yes, the D80 is quite the camera, I love it.

As for the answer to your questions, the only difference that I could see was that the sill plates were tinted black instead of being silver/chrome. Unfortunately, I did not get any good shots of the open door... however, I think that during the 10 min vid of the guy talking I pan around to that side... however the youtube quality isn't so great, so I'm not sure what you'd see.

marticus24,

I'm looking at the photos you provided right now. Right off the bat I noticed that you were sitting in the Camaro with the Sun Roof, and that you're 6'2. In your opinion, what is the tallest a guy could be and still be able to get away with getting the Sun Roof option, and still sit comfortably in the car? Thank you very much for your time!
