This thread has gotten waaayy out of hand!

First, the gas filler cap; Is it really THAT much of an issue?! MAybe everyone would rather fill the gas tank on their Mustang, Challenger, etc.??? Personally, the gas-cap location isn't as important as that "IT'S ATTACHED TO THE NEW CAMARO!!!"
Sure, it would have been cool had it remained where it was on the Concept, but, "Life's too short" people! Where ever the cap is, be glad its on our beloved Camaro.

The headlights; If I recall correctly, I think Scott mentioned that the "production" pictures we're seeing are of a car thats only about 60% complete. WAIT for the final production model before condemning the Camaro.

My point is, BE GLAD WE WERE GIVEN BACK OUR CAMARO!

ya that front looks nasty. Watch out Mustangs. And those yellow taillights really change the look of the rear end.

1st arrived the "new" Mustang.
2nd arrives the "new" Challenger.

Anyone else look it as "Saving the BEST for last"??!!

As for the front-end, I see "evil". It looks like a Raptor, coming in for the kill.

Once agian, the yellow turn signals are for AU cars, , big deal if the gas cap is on the passenger side, thats the way it is on my mustang, and before anyone jumps down my throat its and older fox mustang, this could be the V-8 camaro, but then agian it could not, its just cool to see that the scoop will be a working scoop and not just a filled in peice of fiberglass, besides its better to have the gas cap on the right side so you can hide the person with you, lol, even if the girl is hot or not, its a double or nothing, lmao

Sigh another post pointing out the obvious...


If all we have to argue is the positioning of the gas cap location, congrats GM you have a car that is acceptable to 90% of America.

For all that is HOLY, PEOPLE THE AMBER LIGHTS ARE FOR EXPORT PURPOSES!

First, Dragoneye must have himself locked in a padded room to keep from posting re: headlights...

Second, I will hold out hope that a SS or Z28 version may still have the concept gas cap as an option. :fingerscrossed:

Third, the car still looks great in spite of the camo, blur, angle, paint, light, and whatever else might be wrong with the image. So, until I see it in person I will keep a positive outlook and continue hold a big to GM... for now.

Yup. You got it!

Aaaaanyways. It's all good. Just have to wait a few more months until the final car is shown....THEN 'some people' can all revel in their wrongness.

Well, I guess I'm the only one, but I'm glad that the gas filler cap is on the side of the car. Here in NJ, it is ILLEGAL to pump your own gas, so you get a $5 per hour guys that barely speaks english pumping it for you. Can you imagine what a top filler would look like after a few years of that abuse? Thankfully, GM is building a car that works for the whole country, not just "self service" states. I have owned a few Corvettes with top fillers, and they were a complete nightmare around here.

I think the passanger side fuel door just makes more sense....

so you can walk around your car and be remembered that you are driving the meanest Camaro to hit the streets

that and the door hitting the pillars....i cant remember how many times i've seen people at the gas station hitting their doors on them.

/sigh

I'm sorry, I go back to the covenience thing...the gas cap should be on the driver's side period. My opinion, yes, (and apparently others as well), and no, it is not a deal breaker for me, just a minor annoyance.
I'm careful with my own door cuz I'm aware of the strong winds but unlike you and me, some people are not aware of their surroundings and just casually open their doors. It is simple. You had asked how people could do that and I was trying to give a possible reason. That's all.
I'm not crying about anything I've seen yet. We're on the same Camaro Parade float.

Just a little experiment to see how many people actually read the whole post. I love the way this car is shaping up, that nose looks MEAN! One thing I don't like is the fuel door being on the pass. side, but that's just personal preference. Awesome car!

Yeah, I'm with you Gotham, I'll ride right next to you on that float. I didn't mean to come off sounding like an ass. If I did, my apologies. I guess like the cap being on the side to help idiots who always spill gas, I just think it sucks that a company has to lose some of the cool factor on their products (whatever product that may be) to "idiot proof" it.

Anyway, as I've stated, the gas filler thing, strictly personal preference. It won't keep me from buying the car. I think it's looking great, in and out, and I hope GM keeps on the track they're on...if they do, the future is very bright...for them and for all of us driving their products.

My job is done

Allow me to explain myself, I posted that specifically to get people to say, over and over, that THOSE ARE NOT FOR OUR CAMAROS. It probably needs to be said on every page, since not everyone will



I am sorry for any rage that I caused by my post from earlier

TriPower, you are NOT allowed to pump your own gas??? Really? Wow.

And I wouldn't hold out having the filler on top as an option. Different filler tubes, different quarter panels, different pieces to support it, having to meet up on the assembly line. This is a (relatively) low cost, high volume car. Remember the last few years of the Trans Am came standard with T-Tops. It was cheaper to add the feature, rather than manage how many of each to build. And it wasn't even a matter of saving on tooling, as the firebird and formula could still be had in a hardtop.

Hello fello Camaro lovers. I just wanted to give a yell and say that in Oregon, it is against the law to pump your own gas as well. I wouldn't want some disgruntled employee of where-ever I am pumping my gas to be careless with my paint either. I personally wouldn't mind having the gas cap on the passengers side with one exception. Now, if I have someone in the passengers seat, I have to be their eyes for them or they'll ding my car. That can be a pain. Then they'll think that I am overprotective of my Camaro....which I will.

Thumbs down

I'm glad that people are complaining about what they see. If anyone from GM is reading these boards, then it's the only chance to voice your opinion.

I don't get why many of you want to say "whoo-ray" for GM. It's like some baseball or football team you're rooting for. If GM is making bad decisions by making changes, then express them. Good for all of you who have.

What's worse is those of you who assume that GM is making changes for good reasons. NOPE. On what basis do you make such an assumption?...None....just 'cause you like GM, or something silly like that.

Someone on this thread said it right...it's about money! It would cost them too much to put that gas cap on top.

The change to the rear bumper and the backup lights....that's just poor choices by GM designers. And no, don't post giving me some made up reasons as to why they had to do that, like to meet some code, etc. We all know they can design just about anything they want.

The change to the rear bumper and the placement of the backup lights was a design change. A very poor design change at that.

I say to GM...make it like the concept! Sure, change the things you have to, but not those that you don't.

I have never heard of a state mandating pumped gas. That's the most absurd thing I've heard...we'll almost.

Seriously, that's crazy. If I had a classic car those bozos wouldn't touch my car. What's this country coming to?

I'm very sorry to have to tell you this, Sbg...but your DEAD WRONG.

There are reasons that GM has changed what they changed. You'll just have to wait and see why. In the meantime, let's be very clear and say that it's not bad to say "Whoo-rah" for GM and the Camaro.
Why you seem infatuated with pointing out little nitpicky things, and congratulating those who do....is beyond me. We are not in the business of criticizing GM for every move they make on the Camaro. Because there are some things most of us don't understand, as we are not ON the design and engineering team.

I'll say again, the team does not change things just...because. There are regs to meet, and practicality issues to confront. To think otherwise is naive. I'm sure we'd all love to have a Gold-plated bowtie on our cars...but it ain't gonna happen.
If GM doesn't seem to be following your instructions - then think about why not. Perhaps because you're asking for too much, perhaps you're asking for things that can't be engineered (at relatively low cost) into a production vehicle. Or better yet - maybe your wants, and suggestions for the car contradict what the majority of people are saying they want.
