Most of that info should be released at Indy, some possibly before. Oh, and Scott goes by the name fbodfather around here.

And don't forget the big black 'burbans. You can only see the driver with a 2x4. I don't want to know whats in the back!

I'm alive!

Ok, I know it's been ages since I've been on this site, much less posted an actual response! Just want to let you all know I am alive and well (though I did buy a mustang...) BUT, I promise it was cheap and just to hold me over until I can slide my ass into a brand new Camaro (called 25 Chevy dealers yesterday to make sure my name is on that list, or they call me as soon as they start one).

I have no idea how just yet, but you can bet your exhaust tips I will be there.
I'm with Mindz though. I'm definitely not bringing my Mustang (please don't hurt me!). Do we need to register if we're not bringing a car? I don't want to get all the way out there just to find that the place is too crowded and I can't get in.

Looking forward to seeing a lot of you there. We're going to need to have some kind of Camaro5 reunion so we can put some names to faces. If someone wants to be really resourceful, we can put together some Camaro5 T-shirts. Maybe boost the exposure of the site a bit.

P.S. I will be taking lots of pics, but I don't have anything close to a decent camera, so we'll see how they turn out.

Kunkelz28! I might take you up on that, i would love to attend this but was praying someone from the minneapolis area would be doing a road trip in a nice LS powered ride. I know this is my first post but i've been passively reading posts/topics to the forum for well over a year. I'm also a member on mnfbody.com and post over there occasionally.

I've only got one trip planned this summer and that is for the ALMS race out at Road America in Wisconsin in Aug. This would be a perfect follow-up to that.

Oh yeah, i also have a nice brand new Canon 40D DLSR w/ 8GB CF memory card that i could really break in nicely at the event.....

Wow... that sharpe guy is a complete ass... anyways... I hope to god it is everything we've been hoping for and more... i'm currently looking for either a replacement for my cavalier or something to drive in the nice weather and the cavalier for the winter. If this camaro is affordable and as much as we hoped for i think that it'll end up being my summer car... If it isn't im price range though i think i'll be getting a G5 and have to hold off on the camaro... PLEASE LOTS OF PICS THOUGH TO THE GUYS THAT ARE GOING!!!!!!

So, I read the first 3 pages...and I didn't see this. I found this on Autoblog's website...I'll include the link so that you can look for yourself...but:

Quote:
UPDATE: We've contacted GM to inquire about the validity of this story, and they tell us that the production Camaro will not debut at this event. It will actually debut BEFORE then at a place TBD. Hmmm... what event takes place before September that would be an appropriate place to debut an iconic muscle car? If you'd all like to meet us at the Coney Island restaurant on Woodward Ave. the Thursday before the Dream Cruise, we'll buy you a coney.
Interesting...take what you want from that...and believe it or not...I just wanted to throw that in there!

Let me try to mimmick that second responder but in my thoughts:

Well put I've heard that the LS1 guys are nasty to the sixer people, but thats been a while back

If I go, which is in stage 3 of 5 (figuratively speaking), I will have my D-SLR and more than enough memory to go around...not to mention a laptop and my own website to upload to. Images won't be an issue.

Would have been pretty bad if something happened and there were no cars to unveil after saying there would be. Gotta "Keep the faith"

unless he has figured out how to average 2.6 posts a minute for the last 4 years, I'm thinking its not quite accurate. That and the top two posters combined account for more replies than are on the entire site. I just wonder how they hacked the site and didn't get banned.

Yes of course, but from the message boards I've been visiting there's a lot of people who's ears aren't as well trained I guess. The point is when someone shares confidential inside information and asks that you not to share it publicly then that's what you do. Scott has the right to drop all the hints he wants, our club honored our commitment to not make public statements until they said is was OK. So I'm not sure why you felt it necessary to make that post.

well i have heard things and seen some stuff coming from them that i don't exactly agree with... and i just meant that lately they are coming up with tabloid type things right now... If you ask me they're just trying to stir up confusion with this current theory of theirs...

Ok I see where some some confusion may have come from. Hadn't noticed it until it was pointed out to me. On some message boards our information "that the new production Camaros will be in attendance and unveiled at the Indy 08, Back at the Brickyard Event in September. The car will be unveiled at the event and many different models/engine combos will be available for the general public to review,,," was cut and pasted into threads that were then given a title with the word "Official" added, and then posted on other sites with the same misleading title. In our defense nowhere was it ever stated the this would be the one and only "Official" unvieling. Terribly sorry for any confusion that may have caused. Hopefully you have seen Scott's post in the other thread by now.

I'll try to maintain good manners in this all, but it was very disappointing to hear that the public, which is the only reason that the car even exists (our overwhelming response to the concept), won't be the first to see the production models in a venue such as this. Just keep in mind that the word "Official" is far less misleading...the word "unveiled" is completely false according to the real story.

But, barring something ridiculously amazing happening, I did just save several hundred bucks by not going.

I wonder if there's more of a need to cater to the automotive magazines than there is to cater to a get-together of people who are already going to buy the car? It makes sense that they would be eager to please the media with giving them the first crack at the car because they are going to have a lot of influence on people who aren't already looking for a dealer taking downpayments. LOL!

I think the reason that it is being shown to the press before hand is so that they can have writeups ready to coincide with the public showing. And remeber, with autoshows the press week is the week before it opens to the public. Just a couple things to keep in mind.

I still want to hear that the Indy "unveiling" is the first time the PUBLIC sees the cars. Because, yes, I DO want to be a part of history and I don't see why that's a bad thing (was that this thread or the other one...can we get a merge or something?)

OMG!!

I just caught a red-eye flight from Las Vegas to Indy last night(well rather this morning at 1AM) and the drive from Chicago to Indy is very do-able. I will say this though I will wear my Bears hat with pride, even if Colts fans become beligerant. I will have my 05 White Sox jacket on as well to shut them up wit my bumblebee shirt awaiting to see this masterpiece! It'll be a late birthday gift to myself, but a well deserved one.

GET READY CAUSE HERE I COME!!!! :5thgenvert:

Losing the Super bowl should tell you that Colts fans are not intimidated by the Rex Grossman era. But, like I said, hugging my 05 championship shirt from the White Sox is my only consolation, well until this puppy comes out! Which is why I will brave the elements of Indy to see this car unveiled! However, I will have the black Yukons on standby in case I need a getaway.
