what will be told at indy?

I'm still debating about going to indy. I really want to go and see the camaro but it is a far way to go especially if I don't get to see the car up close and hear any new info. So my question is.... What is going to be shown and told at indy? Is it going to be all the options and all the specs and numbers? Will I see a ss/rs? Any help in what I should expect will greatly persuade me in driving 5 to 6 hours out there. Thanks guys.

My biggest expectaion at Indy is to see a lot of Gorgeous Camaros. Meet some Camaro Lovers from around the country and have a few laughs at the same time.

It is going to be interesting to see what GM brings to the party. If you look at the event website, there will be the usual ride and drives much like what went down in Warren last year.

I can't wait to hit the highway next Friday morning with 25 Camaros in my rearview mirror. That is going to be awesome.

We may know more about the interior due to photos from the event, including confirmation of where the USB port would be and what sort of music integration will be built into the Camaro.

We also may get more specifics on the suspension.

Basically, we can take more pictures, and they will tell us anything we don't know.

Other than that, we know a lot about this car.

You will see more than one 5th Gen camaro. There will be an IVER on Thursday night.

Then, for the show, you will see ....mmmm....more than one production Camaro...I'm sure.

As of now, I am fairly sure we won't see an SS/RS unless someone is keeping a REAL good secret.

Don't skip out just because...shoot, I'm spending over a grand for this trip and know it'll be worth every penny...meeting people, seeing cars, getting to ask questions (I know you have a few and will be able to ask the designers THEMSELVES), etc.

Plus...some of the engineers will be there to answer questions and it has been confirmed that you will be able to sit in, touch and pop the hood on at least one of the new Camaros.

You live in Ohio and you are debating whether to go or not. You are right next door! Find a few guys and convoy down together. That will be part of the fun.

wow -- lots of speculation -- not a lot of facts.

Let me say this:

The ride to Indy just to meet all of the Camaro/Firebird enthusiasts and hang out with them is worth the trip. -- and then there are all of the enthusiasts' cars..............that makes it even MORE worth the trip.

Everything else is gravy.

(how often do you get to talk to a Camaro engineer???? -- or a designer???)

and I'll be up front with you -- we are not going to unveil an Indy Pace car at this event..........I'm not saying there will never be another Camaro Indy Pace car -- ..........

I thought that was going to be one of the main events! Whew! If I had driven all thay way from So. Fla. and no SS/RS to see I would have been extremely disappointed. I guess all these threats of Hurricanes may have saved me money and mileage on the ole SS.

Remember the old saying..."sumpthin, sumpthin or gas, nobody rides for free." He's making a great offer if you really wanna go.
