I dont think they would be able to do the Camaro justice with the design of the car.
Best not to bastardize an icon with a poor execution.

Because the Mustang and Challenger "stock cars" look like trash and GM doesn't want the same to happen to the Camaro.

If you want to run Camaros in a race series, run Camaros. Not generic shells with stickers.

I agree, I do not think they could do it justice with the current rules packages. It looks great in Grand Am, GTA, and Drag cars.

Every car on the track looks like a Camry.

There is going to be a new entry for chevrolet in Nascar, but up until now your guess is as good as anyone else's as to what it will be. I have heard camaro, malibu, and even chevelle?

I believe that nascar is relaxing the cookie cutter cars for all brands across the board for 2013, that's why chevy will be changing things up a bit. Didn't Dale Jr. drive a camaro in a nationwide race a while back?

Here's a link to an article published by Rick Hendrick where he refers to a new nameplate for 2013 based on the "SS", not a camaro since he also references the fact that the car will be made in limited numbers unless demand calls for more, and it will be made in Australia. I wonder if this is the revitalized Pontiac G8 on a chevy platform?

I just saw pictures! Thank god I don't drive that car. Other than the hood and the vinyl stickers for the headlights its still the Impala. Giant drivers window and even bigger rear quarter windows. But I guess I expected it anyway. How's a driver supposed to crawl out the windows of the actual stock Camaro?
