There will be no further listing of dates at this time due to the numerous unforseen circumstances which has led to the Camaro Concept being pulled from certain auto shows. GM and Scott Settlemire will let us all know as the guaranteed dates unfold.

Oh, I'm sure that's still on. I had requested any information regarding further dates and was told that there is so much going on w/ the concepts, that it could be pulled at any time. It was pulled from either the Houston or Dallas show for the last two days because GM had "plans" for it not to mention it was pulled from other shows. GM doesn't want anyone dissapointed being promised it will be somewhere specific and then doesn't show.

Sorry about that. I meant the release of future dates only. They are going to hold off on that.

Mindz, I'm telling ya...there's no comparison looking at pictures after you've seen it in person. It is that much better in person! You should seriously think about figuring out a way to get down there and check it out.

Hey Mindz, sounds like your talking about the Friday night at Burbank. That's cool but I'll be at Donut Derelicks in Huntington Beach on Saturday morning.
If you make it, I'll be in my '94 Impala SS, parking near Don Jose's restaurant.
Hope to see ya (I just can't wait!)
Ken

Well unfortunately I'm working friday night until 8 pm. Even if I left as soon as I got back to my car (around 10 pm), I would just barely make it with no sleep. I don't think I'm gonna get to make it.

Next week I start my new shift (6pm - 2am) sun - thursday. Why couldn't it have been this week!!!

Well, I'm heading down to see the vert concept tomorrow morning and I just can't hardly wait. Talking with some guys at work it sounds like there will be a pretty huge turnout so I plan on being there at 5:00am.
I was wondering a couple things;
1) If I can get close enough, does anyone (TAG) have any "special requests" for me to check out? For example, I have yet to see where the backup lights are, so I'm going to check that out etc.
2) On this site, I have clicked various links to videos of the coupe driving around here and there (oh that V8 burble.....) but, aside from it being driven (1-2 mph) onto the display floor at shows, I have NOT seen any video of the vert cruising the streets. Did I miss it or are there no other "action" videos of it?

There is, I'll see if I can find a link- I've posted it before, the vert makes a real tight turn...impressive really...

And I think the backup lights are immediatly above the muffler - But that's a good thing to check out...also, see if you could get some close ups of the cieling, back seats(foot space) and the control sticks on the steering column- THANKS A BUNCH!

Thanx much Dragoneye, short and sweet without sound but at least it's proof that it has it's own power!
Now let's see, close ups of the ceiling? Well, there isn't one, as I've read, not even under the tonneau so.....? Back seat foot room? I'm all over it as wife.com thinks there will be no room for adults in back (and she may be right). Control sticks on steering column; Do you mean tilt/cruise/turn signals, etc? Good point, I try and check it out.
Thanx again for the link.

I'll do my best w/ the dates. Emailed Scott a few days ago and got that bad news about GM not wanting to post up any more dates until the plans for the concepts were finite. I promise you this...as the dates become available, they WILL be posted here on the day that I get them.

UPDATE

In the latest issue of Car Craft, a date and location was released for another showing of the Camaro. The article DOES NOT tell which Concept will be shown. The info hasn't been verified, but mark it on your calendars.

According to Car Craft, "The GM Performance division has announced that the 08' Camaro will be at the Car Craft Summer Nationals"

July 20-22 - Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul
