First off: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! :(
Why just on the side like everyone else?! Why not on top?! And why a FUEL DOOR instead of an awesome GAS CAP like on the concept?!


Sorry for my emo moment there. I'm actually okay with the side it is on though.

Other than the misplaced fuel door ......

I know, this IS pretty disappointing, I feel your pain man. But, maybe GM just hasn't worked out the mass production details of the top of the line Camaro fuel filler yet? Or, there will always be bondo and the after market
Hope you're OK man, but we're still gonna be buying this awesome machine when they're released.
All I have to say, READ ABOVE, GM.


Honestly, I'm alive. But, as you can tell by my MULTIPLE quotes, I'm NOT HAPPY. What can I say.... I guess I can't say anything to change anyones minds but, "READ ABOVE GM." Then, I'll just kick back, hope, pray, ..., be sad.... I'm just saddened....really saddened that they had to go and do this.:(

Guys and gals, I love this car. I LOVE IT. I'm just very passionate about this Camaro and what comes of what we saw in NAIAS. No deal breaker for me. But, I'm going to think about it each and every time when I have to fill up and look at the d@mn gas cap. Some of you are probably saying, "get over it." I know. I know... and believe me, I've got a response, but I'll just keep it to myself.

Other than that, freakin' beeeeautiful car. Great, Great, GREAT, GREAT job, GM.

....and now, a message from my wife.....and you know it must be important if she says something other than, "get off the dang computer!" ...and I quote....

"Awwwww.....it was cool on top. "Why do they have to go and do things like everybody else. There's something to be said about being unique. Just dropped 10 points on the coolness factor."

In advance, I'm sorry, Scott. I just feel the same way as a lot of others here.:( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(


And Kenz, you bet. We're still going to be buying one hell of a machine...that's for d@mn sure.

Get over it man! Like someone else said earlier, "regular" people are going to own this car too, and they might ruin their paint when they spill some gas with the filler on top.



General Motors, for making a 5th gen Camaro.

You know Tag, you're not alone caring that much. You all saw my list of other cars I'm considering. All good cars. Yet when I thought about them, I thought things like "well, every time I go to fill it up with gas, it wouldn't be nearly as cool as filling up the Camaro with gas through that beautiful fuel door". I mean it just blew me away that EVERYTHING was special about this car, including something as ordinary as a fuel door. I mean, only the Camaro could make something like that look so cool that it became one of its most memorable design features. Now with the new fuel door, filling the Camaro up with gas won't be different than filling a Corolla up with gas. Just a door in the side of the car...yay. It sounds so vain and petty, but really, it is all about what makes the Camaro such a standout. Its all in the details.

^Your right. It does make it stand out. And no, I'm not alone. You're right. I'll get over it....I will.

And now let me take a moment to thank all those people who don't know how to fill up their gas tank w/out spilling some on their paint. Oh, and I also have to thank all those who open their doors and hit the metal poles at the gas station!!! Can't forget about you guys either!

Ok...I'm better.

EDIT: I know this was done for many reasons....another big one being the $$$ factor. All good.

Ok now I'm pissed. I have'nt posted in awhile but I have to rant. That back bumper looks like f***in crap compared to the concept. Why in the world would GM need to change that??? Wouldn't it cost GM MORE money to add lips to the d@mn thing?!? And the poor fate of the gas cap NOOO!!!! HOW COULD YOU GM??? That takes away from the look of the car. And those hideous headlights...don't even get me started. GM if you read this, I KNOW what you're thinking and going with these headlights and you better wipe those THOUGHTS out of your MIND. I have a minor gripe with that attenna on the roof also....what if I don't even want Satellite radio? None of this really makes sense to me. I know GM wants to save money but the things they added to this car (ie. rear bumper with added lips, sirius satellite radio, extra f***ing headlights) The only thing that makes sense in being cost effective is :sigh: placing the gas cap on the side. I say go with the concept rear bumper, get rid of the satellite radio and the extra headlights and place the gas cap back on top of the rear fender. Voila GM cost effective! Everyone can be happy and go on about their day.


P.S. I know people are saying time and time again, those are not the production headlights....but I find it hard to believe that a huge company like GM can't have the "real" headlights available yet (but can conveniently have them for the concept cars?? yeah ok)So I am not buyin this oh we just needed some lights at the last minute bull that they say because they are showing these headlights on the V6 and V8 it appears. Hell, I know I wouldn't be showing off the wrong headlights on a beautiful car that I created and give people the wrong impression (especially when GM said they were ugly headlights...or something along those lines).
