OK, I think I have a solution. Maybe we could add a pop up box during the registration process that is kinda like the licensing agreements you get when installing software. Except this one just has a statement about the headlights not being production, being from Autozone just for test mule purposes, etc and that complaining about them or referencing them as the production units is grounds for post count reset at an undisclosed future time (say when they're just about to hit 1000 posts). And you have to click a check box saying "I have read and acknowledged the above statement." There, then everyone is up to speed.

On the upside, I'm thrilled to see all these new members so passionate about the headlights. Late to the game and losing interest my butt. The Camaro is gaining popularity daily.

And (stovt001) I'm in complete agreement that it's great people are so enthusiastic about the headlights and the Camaro...I guess I just feel like if people can take the time to write posts...they can also take at least a small amount of time to look through the threads a bit...I know, I'm sorry, that's asking a lot

And in the statement, include a line that says "to continue you must select 'I disagree' " just to make sure that they read it.

sigh.

Nvdirtbiker, suffice it to say that those WILL NOT be the production lamps. In fact, there have been multiple hints dropped whenever this dead horse flinches, that the idea was to "Keep the production design true to the concept, with a little changes as possible." So, there's no need to worry anymore, is there? You can buy a Camaro now, like the rest of us.

I really dont care for that slot in the front of the Camaro anyway. IMO the hood on the Red Camaro in this picture looks a hell of a lot better than what is on the Camaro right now....I'll definetely be sure to change my hood to the one on the red camaro and make it a "functional" intake

Read. I wish people could others by taking 5 min. from their time to check something as simple as headlights. I know that when I joined up, I read first to make sure I didn't end up embarrassing myself. Guess I just thougth that was commen sense.

This is beginning to get aggrivating...

Well, I am gald to hear those lights will NOT be production. Regarding the comments about my being "late to the game", I was responding to an email I received from this very forum...I will paste it here;

Dear Camaro5 member,

If you've been hoping for a clear un-camo'd look at the front grill of the preproduction Camaro, have a look at this:

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2927

This is the clearest shot yet of an uncovered front-end and we love its aggressive black-on-black look!

Enjoy!


Okay, after reading that, and clicking the link, and seeing the photo, what would YOU think? I thought that front end was a done-deal. Phew! Am I glad I was wrong!

Insofar as hoods go...my vote is for the old "cowl induction" style. I hope they at least make that an option, or include it in a package like the Z/28.

I/We completely understand. And unfortunatley you caught the heat for about 1,000,000 previous posts that weren't your fault.

So, know that you are welcome here. Thanks for joining!!!

Honest mistake! I'm sure I would have thought the same thing if that email was the only information I had seen on the Preproduction Camaro. But some other people don't have an excuse! Welcome!!
