Google won't search for Chevy Camaro because it knows you don't find Chevy Camaros. Chevy Camaros find you.

The original title for "Alien vs. Predator" was "Alien vs. Predator vs. Chevy Camaro." It was cancelled in preproduction, because film execs knew no one would pay 9 bucks to see a movie 14 seconds long.

Its great to hear that GM has put on a bit of a show for those guys. And I really want to see some of that video footage that's been taken. I'm sure that these people know pretty much everything about the Camaro now. 15 extra people who have signed their life away (I assume) aren't that many more considering how many GM engineers, designers, and everyone else involved with the Camaro who know all the details, and have known them for awhile. And the disciples only have to keep quiet for a few months.

Go to Russia. For a price they let almost anyone fly a MiG. For a enough cash I bet they would let you take it home.

No thanks...fratting w/ the Russians would probably be a poor career decision for me.

Although it'd be pretty sweet for Lutz to own a MiG.

Mr. Lutz has several civilian jets, one of which is a Czech L-39 Albatros trainer. Now I don't know if that was what he was flying but its just an example of what a multi-million dollar a year salary can get you..

at least a little detail about the headlights and taillights, as in, how close to the concept are they, as mentioned above.

I'm just petty I suppose.
I cant tell you how honored and privileged each of us are. We are truely humbled. I'm pushing the boundaries here, but the media event to unveil the car is planeed to happen sooner than you are suggesting.

and yes, the flyby was Mr Lutz. He exchanged emails with Scott this evening.

EXACTLY. And this, this is why I'm so bummed that the official unveil won't be at INDY. I wanted to be a part of history....and was willing to spend a grand to be a part of it (and money sure as heck doesn't grow on trees for me!). Now, I'd rather see the pix online and save my cash for a downpayment.



On the other hand, this post just about made ME well up with tears! I could almost see it and feel it walking out to the "vettes" only to see the Camaros. Ugh...and to get the opportunity to drive them?!?! I'd bet anything that V6 manual is not only as fast as the 4th Gen Z28 (mayyyybe a few hp shy), but even cooler, is that I bet that manual is a 6spd.

Man, I couldn't even fathom the excitement. I probably would have gotten myself sick and given myself migranes from all the excitement...lol. You increadibly lucky folks. I'm so increadibly happy for ya'll.
