I think people are going on their past experiences with Camaros and GM cars in general. I know for a fact that prior generation Camaros needed holes drilled to install the front plates.

Every car I've owned since 1984 onward has been a GM car, and I know how they typically mount the front plates and the style of the ones in the photo look to me like the "drill and bolt" design that's been on many of my past GM cars.

If the design is not like that and we're just jumping to conclusions, then a big THANK YOU from those of us in "front plate states". My hat is off to you for making it right.

I think everyone needs to just take a deep breath, and wait to see the official production pictures before saying anything else.

while the grille is slightly different it pretty much kept the same dimensions and looks pretty much like their concept...just like the solstice...

Maybe the upcoming High Performace model can borrow a mid-80's Silverado grill to differentiate it from the base model?

The base model looks like the showcar.

You keep saying that and every time you do it sounds more and more like a lame excuse.

To me, its about taking care of the car, so I prefer the more complicated (not really) route of figuring out a way to mount a plate without drilling holes.
That's a stupid law anyway, how do you see the front license plate if someone is driving by at high speeds? To me this is like damaging a car, a less invasive way of mounting a front license plate needs to be implemented. If they do drill holes into Porches which are far more expensive, they will likely do it on the Camaro.

Chevydude,

The amazing thing is that I have to look REALLY HARD to distinguish those "other" concepts from the production versions.

Brand new cars are FULL of holes where all the parts are mounted. They're under the rear plate too, and the spoiler etc etc etc. Don't think about it.

If you don't understand the difference between a factory hole and a non factory hole then I don't think you're going to ever understand his plight.

After 19 pages....30% of which is mindless arguing....am I really going to close the thread?

How about we just lay off of each other, huh?

Critics: we get the point, you don't like it. That's fine; everyone's allowed an opinion.

Lovers: just....Good.


EVERYONE: RELAX!!!
