Aukland, thats New Zealand right? So this would confirm that it came from Australia, unless there was some kinda crazy flightpath that took the longest possible rout from Europe to L.A.

I ditto what everyone else said basically.

I just wanted to point out that Australia is actually a longer flight than Europe from LAX. To France its between 8 and 9 hours, Australia is a good 13 or 14 hours.

It almost seems like a conspiracy to keep us from knowing the location of the gas cap... So many "unauthorized" pictures of the Camaro have been taken, yet they all conveniently omit the gas cap.

Ok, I know you only have a limited time to take pictures, and I know they only pic so many of them to post up on various websites. With a cell phone, it can be a slow and tedious process to get decent pictures.

However, these people who are taking the pictures are obviously looking at the car with their eyes as well, right? I mean, they're not walking around with their eyes closed and just looking at the pictures later. They see a lot more than we do.

Yes, it would be nice to have a picture of the gas cap that we could all debate whether or not it would change before the production model, but I for one would settle for someone who has seen the prototypes in person to just tell us where the gas cap was.

Camero has told us many times that it's on the passenger's side, and he's offered pictures of what the design looks like on other cars, but, though I do believe he is who he says he is, I won't be convinced until someone I know has seen it first hand tells me where it is and what it looks like.

I don't mean to be mocking anyone or sound condescending, but what's the fascination with the production gas cap? It's well known to be a nondescript, white circle on the passenger side rear quarter. What the hell is the deal with seeing it? Go look at any car parked outside with a passenger side filler...



EDIT: I'm really not judging, just frustrated that I don't understand the mentality.

One of the things people loved about the concept was the aluminum gas cap on the top of the driver's side haunch and, although its unlikely that it will still be there in the production version, people are anxious to see where it's wound up. There has been no official word from GM regarding its location nor have any pictures shown it, so people are curious/hopeful.

We all were so enamored with the Concept's gas cap design that we're in denial about the production version. We refuse to believe that the Camaros we will be driving will have anything but the Concept's gas cap. Therefore, no amount of suggestion can convince us until we A) See it with our own eyes, or B) Hear it from someone that we know has correct information (i.e. Scott, Bob, Ed, John, or someone who's taken pictures of a prototype).

I love it where it is and pray it stays up top!!!! The photoshop only thread has a couple pix of the gas cap on side shots that Dragoneye did. It just doesn't look the same. The race inspired look is what gets me. It's different. It's not the same old gas cap I have now.

If these are the cars from australia that were in the other photos, then wouldn't the same details show on them? Or do they alter the mules as they go? (BTW this is not directed soley at sbg, but anyone and everyone who would know)

Great pictures and welcome to the Forum...

and for all those so worried about the gas cap location, I have some insider news.....it is going to be under a little flap next to the hood, like the Family Truxter in National Lampoon's "Vacation"

Seriously, It's only a Gas cap.. Not like it's the most important part of the car. besides, the location that is on top of the fender is very bad, especially if this car will be a flex fuel car, any spillage onto the paint will not be good. Ethanol is detrimental to paint.
Now everyone slowly count to 10 and repeat, "It's only a gas cap...It's only a gas cap... It's only a gas cap"

Taking 680 North from San Mateo (where I live), after crossing the bridge, stay on 680 as opposed to 780 and you travel off to the right along the marsh (where all the old navy ships are). There's a giant parking lot looking thing. This is where the newly imported cars are stored before they're shipped to dealers state/nationwide. You might catch some shots there this weekend. Someone a while back said it was on the 28th that they'd be arriving, but I thought it was by boat to the SF port like production models. Since it's a prototype I doubt it will be in that parking lot over there as that's models to be shipped somewhere.

It's NOT just a gas cap. It's NOT just a gas cap. It's NOT just a gas cap.

Add some B-pillars. Make the roof higher. Make the wheels smaller. Don't cut out the vents. Change the gas cap location....and go ahead and paint the cover.....Hell...just change a few more things about the car. Now, I can understand reasons for certain changes.

I can live with a few things. But, give me a break. I'm not one who goes to a dealer and buys whatever is on the lot... So, for a lot of us, it ISN'T JUST a gas cap.

We obviously wanted it, we're the ones that designed the one you love, but there's only so much money for useless parts. Go look at other mid-$20K cars... you're getting sooooo much more with the Camaro you'll be blown away and you can spend $400 for your own billet gas cap (or $100 for the plastic one we'd give you) and be the only one with one rather than driving the price of everyone's car up. $5 for this and $100 for that adds up till the car is in a whole different price class and you have to add another $10,000 to compete with them. You can't imagine how fast the price snowballs. And the low roof, huge wheels and tiny lights look fantastic in pictures and on the stand but look ridiculous on the street and would render the car unusable. I've seen the showcar drive on actual streets and it looks like a cartoon joke... the production car looks much better. (and please don't get me started on the sidevents thing again)

no offense to those that want the filler door on the driver's side, but I welcome the filler door being on the passenger side... to me, it makes it easier to fill the car up because I dont have to watch where I swing the door open at... and as it stands, I park as far away as possible from everyone else filling up at the gas station so I dont have to worry about them hitting my car when they are leaving... so its no big deal to me.
