Spotted in OZ - Camaro next to G8 sedans

These were spotted in Mansfield yesterday. 2 Camaros and 5 G8's all together.

Didn't realize how small the Camaro was until seeing these

Thanks for sharing. I wonder just how much the G8s have in common with the camaro, platform-wise.....

Looks the the camaro is a couple inches shorter in height vs the G8. And whats with the camo? Did someone miss Lutz's order a few months ago?

they are probably the very first mules we saw so long ago, hence why they have camo, why waste the money to repaint them (the camo looks painted on?)

camo's not painted on. At least, it shouldn't be. It's a fuzzy white adhesive sticker that's basically slapped on the car. These do look like pix that belong w/ the set taken of the two sitting next to the stangs. I dunno....could have been taken yesterday, but by the looks of them, thing they're old.

Thanks for sharing the pix!!! We still hadn't seen these yet!

that first camaro is from the first pix we saw with the stangs, just without all the wrapping (look at the wheels), tag is right about that, but these are new pics by the look of it, because at the time of those first pix, the production G8 hadnt been unveiled yet (i could be wrong), it was still somewhat of an idea (wasnt it?). i could be wrong about all that tho. but i like to say, "if i havent seen it, its new to me"

seems likes either the G8 is realitivly small (height wise) or the camaro is kinda big (height wise) because the camaro isnt too much smaller. like DGthe3 said, a couple inches, if that. i have yet to see the G8 here in this part of IN yet, so im not sure how big/small it is.


cool pix btw

great pics! although they can be a tad misleading because the camaro is pulled up roughly a foot or so more than the G8.

The G8 is awesome in person (saw it for the first time about an hour ago)!!! After really seeing it in person, the Camaro does seem like it is a little on the small side, Because the G8 isnt that big either. Still, true awesomeness. great pix

Roofline definetely looks few inches shorter but car is maybe longer or same length? Never seen a G8 in person but I say the Camaro looks like it'll be perfect size.

These are old. The camo hasn't been on a Camaro for a while. Still, it's nice to see all the Zetas chilling in a lot together.

I think they just quit putting the camo on new mules, but they didn't take it off the ones that already had it. So these photos may well be from yesterday.

I'm not sure if these pics were takinig here in the US. I think somewhere else, because if you look at the second pic, the wheels on the G8 arent offered here i dont think.

Me too. Betting the Challenger would look really fat though.
