Camaro LS/LT

I know the idea of an LS or LT trim level (or package) for the Camaro has been discussed but I was wondering if anyone has considered what it might look like or had photoshopped some possibilities.

I was thinking it could have the chrome trim around the wheelwells and the window frame. Maybe a billet (or billet-like) grille, chrome exhaust tips, and better rims. I don't really know what they'd do to the inside...perhaps more aluminum or chrome detailing?

Anyways, I was just wondering what you all had to say on the subject. Personally I'd like to see a black Camaro with all the chrome detailing; I think it'd look insanely sharp.

FYI, I speak of the Chrome like on my 4th Gen seen in my sig. Around wheel wells and window frames? Not my cup of tea. The simple things?...like mine? YEP!

I don't think it would look that bad. You can see similar touches on some 300's, Malibu's, etc and it looks nice. Plus I think the window chrome would help to further hide the B-pillar by drawing the eye's attention to the overall window shape.

I think the chrome "appearance package" or whatever they called it looked horrible on the Malibu, and was also a complete waste of money.

I know there was a PS made by someone, and it is somewhere on this site. It is yellow with a black vinyl top (not vert) with chrome trim around the edges, and around the windows i think. I would look for it, but theres over 85 pages of PS pics, so it will take a while, but ill see if i can find it. It looks really nice, if someone else has it, or finds it before me then that cool too.

OK i went threw about 59 pages of photoshops before my brain finally melted, and found nothing so i give up. i still like the chrome trim idea, just as long as its not over done =]

Chrome would be a nice option for low-tier models to help differentiate them from the V8. Chrome should only be considered as a low-cost addition to the Camaro. I want mine very similar to the concept—no chrome for me.

Are you thinking along the lines of the same placement of chrome like on the G8. I believe the Holdens dont use much chrome on their Commodores. If thats the type placement you speak of, that wouldnt be such a bad idea; as long as it can be ordered without it.
