it is not in the same location as the concept -- sorry -- not there.

Crashworthiness is the issue. Yes -- the Lambo has it there -- but the Lambo and the Camaro are two different vehicles -- and react to impacts differently based on the design.

By the way -- I had several C4 Corvettes - you will recall that the fuel fill was in the middle of the rear deck.

I don't want to tell you how many times --no matter how long I left the nozzle in the tank opening after finishing -- only to have a drop - or more -- of gasoline land on the paint.......drove me nutz.

Forget the headlights -- again -- autozone -

Thanks for claering that up. I was sick of reading the same stuff over and over again. Unfortunately, there will probably be another 150 remarks about fuel door location and headlight appearance.

bottom line: be passionate about the car, but dont be disappointed if the filler door is on the passenger side fender, because that is where its going to be on the production car.


I find it amazing that my post was actually typed before Scott's, but it said almost the same thing... had I posted it when I actually typed it, and not answered the phone before hitting "add reply", it would have been before his... lol

Yes, actually I do think that it is. But it still makes me feel better to think that it may still be there... LOL! Oh well, we can dream!

Probably just an unlucky buildup of snow and ice on the fender... Damn snow!!!!

Well, at least all that is cleared up.









But I still see it on top of the black pre production Camaro in the snow.
