Looks like we have pics of both the V6 and v8 prototypes. Notice how they cleverly hid the exhaust tips as much as possible on them. The two prototypes parked next to the blue Mustang convertible look like the V8s and the solo shot prototypes look like they have 17 inch rims on them which I guess are the V6 models.

The V8 models look fantastic with those rims IMO, and fill out the the huge wheel wells very nicely with the 19-20 inch rims. If they are also developing the top dog at the same time, I'm guessing the car with the dark finish, gun metal rims right next to the blue 'stang is our top tog, and the one next to it is the regular V8. The V6 models could use bigger rubber though.

It is raining and snowing here. I just received this e-mail, and I swear, it feels as if the Sun just peaked out.

These pics are awesome. The nose looks a little bigger, but, and it may just be me, but she looks a little taller. I have no cmplaints at all about these pics and the changes made. I think this is the production version we can all look forward to. I am psyched. Let get it shined up GM and remove those triangles.

Anyone else think that is the OnStar or XM Radio antennae on the roof just over the rear window?

Also...are we sure there aren't 3 cars? Check out pics 1-4...that car has the same wheels on it.

It appears that the cars in the pic with the Mustangs have different wheels on them.....yes, different between those two, but also different from the first 4 pics.

Maybe it's just me.

YAHOOOOO!!!

Now this is COOOOL.

There are 4 different sets of rims on the car. They are surely testing wheel sizes as well. There's so much that go into the testing.

I can see the door sills on the bottom...they are there. It looks to be the same to me as on the concept.

Yes, I CAN see the air intake mesh grill thingy in front of the rear tire in pic #4. It's there. Obviously, there's a white triangle over it. But, you can tell it's there.

No, I can't see the reverse lights anywhere on the pictures. They have done a seriously good job at covering up the features of the Camaro.

Now...why do you think there are two Mustangs sitting beside the Camaro? Hmmm.....for testing purposes? Let's run them together? See how they compare side by side? Just to make sure every area has been covered to make the Camaro that much better.

This is great news folks. I can't wait for more pix. Now, if we can only get the photographer to get up closer and snap some more. C'mon!!! Get those pix of the interior! Get up close! No black suburbans are going to haul you off!!! JUST DO IT!!!

This is exactly what I hoped the Camaro would be. It looks just like the concept except the cowl hood is significantly smaller and it's hard to tell what's under the rear blankets.

Nope, not just you. I saw that almost immediately. You can see 3 next to each other on the pic taken from the side and it looks like the mesh sticks up a little more,in the front, on the one closest to the camera. Air intake maybe???

You can clearly see the bulge of the cowl induction hood in one of the pics. Glad to see that make it into the prototype, and presumably production. The roofline looks the same as the concept and hasn't changed much despite the 'raising of the roof'. Door handles are changed to look like the ones they use on the current Impala. The roof antenna looks just like the standard variety OnStar antenna that GM puts on all their cars. Based on the shots of them parked next to the two Mustangs, the two Camaros looks lower to the ground, wider and meaner than the 'stangs.

That is just part of the camo. But what I cant tell is where is the gas cap?

The roofline really isn't all that high. Shoot...it still sits lower than the Mustang! ...and wider...and is going to kick it's #$$%!!!!!

And, from these pix, it looks like they pulled off the b-pillars well. Looks good from those pix.

Oh...and let's all thank Dragon for the excellent find. When I said I'd expect to see them w/in a month, I didn't know that meant by the next morning!!! GREAT JOB!!!!!!!

Great find, Dragon!!!

And...all I can say is I see two prototypes. That's it. I don't see 4 or 5 different cars. I see different wheels, but those are easily changed out. Only two...

The fire breathing V8s are parked next to the two Mustangs, I'm certain of it. A very appropriate shot too, I might add.

Interesting to see Mustangs with amber coloured rear indicator lights. Never seen that before. Must by mandated by the Australian government.

There are at least 3, possibly 4, but for a confirmation on 4 we would need some higher res pics, but defiantly 3. Look at pics 1 and 2. On pic 2 you can clearly see 3 cars in a row, all with the same rear end, all with the camo on the roof. in pic one it appears that there is a 4th in front, but as i said, the resolution is kinda fuzzy to make a 100% positive confirmation. again in pic 3 you can see 3 distinct camo'd roof's the 4th has a lot of glare form the sun, again, prohibiting a 100% confirmation. But more then likely there are 4 camaro's there!

You're right there are at least three, possibly 4 cars. Pic 1 seems to show a procession of 4 camoed Camaros going down the highway. But at the end of the day, and no offense to any potential V6 buyers, I'm only interested in Pic 6 with the two Camaros next to the two Mustangs. Those are the big daddy cars. Just look at the size of the visible exhaust tip on the middle Camaro. It says it all.

On the other website with the much larger pictures you can see that it says "LEFT HAND DRIVE" also you can see the vent in front of the wheel, awesome classic camaro style and in one of the pictures you can see FOUR cars in a row with the camo tops. WHAT A FIND!!
