Actually - the first gen camaro had a cowl hood. Just saying.

for a prospective buyer and track day participant, would you say the camaro handles better than the other pony cars atleast?
In the twisties? Yes, the camaro handles much better than other muscle cars - well my camaro does anyway.

well my friend i dont think a camaro is for you. this car is not suppose to be "sophisticated" its a drivers car for regular people. you want "sophisticated" buy a Mercedes or Aston Martin. those cars scream sophisticated.

first car. flat hood. no faux scoop.
I personally like the scoop in the hood, but each his own, if you don't like it you don't like it.

Ask a few of the vendors on here selling hoods, if they don't have the flat one they probably can direct you to someone who does.


I actually do like what they rendered on the door area, its subtle but I like the lines.....
