A CHALLENGE ON THE SPOT OF THE GAS CAP.

Especially TAG, lol, you seemed really down about this one!!



UPON FURTHER REVIEW, THERE IS A REFELCTIVE IMAGE ON THIS PICTURE THAT SHOWS THAT A GAS CAP IS INDEED PRESENT ON THE DRIVER'S QUARTER PANEL OF THE CAMARO, SO THE RULING ON THIS CAR STANDS, "ITS A BEAUTIFUL CAR", GM WILL NOT BE CHARGED WITH A TIMEOUT(TONGUELASHING),REPEAT THE DOWN, 2ND DOWN AND 8 MONTHS TO GO.

Sadly...I agree. I hope I'm wrong, because I'd absolutely LOVE to have a filler door like the concept, like everybody here. Just - don't delude yourselves (keep an open mind about where it's going to be) - it's not healthy.

[QUOTE=GameOv3r;45000]Those 2 pics that Jay just put up show that the gas cap is where it is on the concept imo. It might even be some kind of combination guys (ie. GM put the nice lookin fuel cap on top of the rear fender but the real place to fill your gas is behind the license plate) so then no one has to worry about spilling gas on their paint BUT retains that look of the concept at the same time. [/QUOTE

I don't think anyone is putting gas caps in the back any more. You guys spend way to much time trying to justify the reality that the cap will be on the side. Start saving your pennies to have it modified!

I feel like I'm seeing photos and a scientist is pointing out the possible UFO in the sky. Where is Mulder and Scully to help us figure out if that is a gas filler on the top! :party0048:

Is anyone else disturbed with the four headlights instead of two large ones in the early concept? Why the small one next to the large?

I was at first-- but it's growing on me. You can always buy a kit to fix that, which is what I plan to do if they keep that hideous grille.

It's been said nearly a million times now, the production car will not have 4 headlights; those are glued/velcroed on. The Fbodfather himself has said this a number of times.

you can clearly (well, not so clearly in fact ) see, that the fuel door is on the passenger's side. from distance, it looks square, when you zoom on it, it looks more oval, but it's there





or

I believe what was said was more along the lines of the lights currently in the pre-production models are not the lights that will be used in production. I don't ever remember hearing someone say there will not be 4 headlights.

Also, as a side note....the comment about the lights being "from Auto Zone" was made long before the spy pics of the front end emerged. How do we know that the lights they are showing here weren't put in after the comment was made about the Auto Zone lights?

With all of that said. I really hope GM gives us the Halo's....not as an optional setup, as the only setup. Those on the concept just made the car look really mean. Even Bumblebee's lights weren't as good looking.

I think the fuel door issue is alot like looking at clouds: you see what you want. If you look hard, it could be on top, on the passenger side, or drivers side. I still haven't seen anything that looks like a fuel door in any of these shots, despite the outlines

He also came out after the photos where released and said he's surprised everyone is bitching becuase he warned us..

Give it up on the headlights already...

And while we are at it.. same with the gas cap..
This is just a figment of some imagination..


Dont see it in this shot.. ITS NOT THERE

For brnkly2 - On the light setup: Large one, bright light. Small one dim/projector type, Smallest third one, turn signal. My Mazda6 is set up like that. But we won't have to worry about that, right?

If you notice the grille is part of the headlight assemblies, so that is not gonna be the final one also. But it does look very similar to the concept.

Maybe we could talk them into putting two fuel doors on the car and you can use which ever one you like. I'm just trying to be fair.

Just as an observation don't the rear quarters on the black car look different than the ones on the white car and the camo car pictured earlier? Or are my eyes deceiving me?
