And BTW to all the other members with the Rustank, etc, comments....the guy posting this and sharing the b@d@ss video (who happens to drive a Mustang) IS a member of THIS CAMARO site!

Let's show some RESPECT to the man and thank him for sharing rather than giving him a hard time for what he drives!
Tag assuming this video was taken today, it was low to mid 80's. They probably saw it coming because the road they where on is a switchback that goes down into a canyon (unpaved, 25MPH speed limit, and VERY narrow).

BTW this section is probably about 15-20 miles from the proving grounds (and therefore my house), AND if this was taken today that means at least ONE pre-prod model is still here which is good news for us here that are going to take the tour of the proving grounds. Punchy sent me a text last Friday saying they where loading them up for transport and wanted to see if i could get there (alas I was working till 5 and couldn't). So at least there is still a chance!!

Thanks for putting that up, Aaron.
I heard you say "her dad must own a dealership"

The person driving the "camera car" was driving the EXACT same car.

GM IS toying with us. BET.

Nice try, guys, but we expect BETTER.

Take that to the BANK.



Take your "sucker bet" back to the line. Nice Try. :(

Uhm toying with us how? Even if this was done by GM (which I don't think it is) who cares... they're giving us a glimpse that we've all wanted to see. Fbodfather has himself said that they're testing cars with different striping/looks so it's not like this is going to be a fake car they put out there just to mess with us. You think they're that bored

I appreciate the video having been taken and I love what I see. She looks awesome in motion (even if slowly heh).

That is freaking sweeeet. Loved the rumble from that beast, but I gotta agree with others, I like the hockey stripes, I could live with them, but the center stripe? No, i'd have to pass, it at least to me doesn't suit to cars lines. Now as far as the shark fin, from what I can see it looks like it's still on the roof.

I had my camera out to film the drive, yes, and when I saw this I got as much video as I could!

That day was 3/15. It was actually a chilly(er) day... tops it was 75 out there. I'd imagine it was a suspension torture test as that ENTIRE dirt road (22 miles) is all washboard-ey.

Thanks for the support... the Mustang is my dads, not mine. I've had 3 third gen Camaro's and I'd never go Ford. Yes, yes, I know, I have a Jeep and a Toyota now... but no Ford :p
