PLEASE, GM, if you're listening, don't put that there....find some other way, almost any other way, to mount the OnStar antenna.
I agree that the rear decklid is a bit busy....


O great, wise, and powerful Fbodfather...would it be possible to merge the 3rd brakelight housing and the XM antenna? I think that if you could merge them, a single unit would look better. Just an idea..

I want to thank you and the rest of the Camaro team for all your hard work. The car is awesome!

How about incorporating the Third brakelight into the lip spoiler? I might just remove the third brake light enclosure and make the bowtie the third brake light.

Basically folks are nitpicking, me included. That comes from wanting the car NOW. In a year or two we'll start seeing there's too many Camaro threads.

those car mags are stupid then because when the cts first came out it brought cadillac back...before cadillac was viewed as cars for old people...

I personally hate it! SS front bumper is still a REAL deal breaker

However, it must be cool to drive

I think the words "hate" and "Camaro" shouldn't be used in the same sentence. Those halo's look f'ing mean!

New Convertible pics'?

http://jalopnik.com/399849/2010-chev...d-in-australia

"Following hot on the heels of the production 2010 Chevy Camaro coupe reveal, we get a good look at a 2010 Chevy Camaro convertible roaming the streets of Victoria, Australia. The lovely blue beast has us all reconsidering GM's direction on the car as it features the hood intake present on the Camaro concept, but nowhere to be seen on the production model. Is it possible we're looking at a Chevy Camaro SS Convertible?

That top looks pretty smooth to us, sacrificing little in the way of style and interior room. And dare we say it, it may actually have better lines than the hardtop. Also differing in the convertible, we see the wheels are of a different design, though obviously that means nothing on a mule car. In addition to a terrestrial antenna there's also a shark-fin antenna resting in the middle of the trunk lid for satellite and OnStar duties. So, a Camaro Convertible with a possible SS badge on the nose: A pony car convertible not just for teenage girls — what a concept. [WheelsMag via GM Inside News]"

It's a shame they cost so much more than hardtops.

T-tops were always a good compromise.

Very nice. Might have to consider a V6 vert rather than a hardtop SS.

I like the look of the drop top in general... But, drop tops aren't really my thing.

It would be cool if the vert some how had a reverse mohawk with the top up. Some kind of lightweight ribbing to give it a reverse mohawk effect. I doubt it would be possible, but it would be cool as hell.

Sorry, random thought.

Id like to see a profile shot of the SS bumper. I think the lower lines are kinda rediculous in the pic on [I]Camaro Lives On[I] signature.

I think the problem with the bumper is that if you look at the lower bumper grill pattern its different than the upper grill the lower grill lines are much finer and the line patterns are different than the upper grill which it has lots of space in between the lines compare the one on the bumper. I believe the change that should be done is to make the line pattern match. it just doesn't match eachother.
