Houston Auto Show - Silver & Yellow Camaros

The camaros were the only cars with big groups of people around them. I will attach some pics.

Houston Auto Show

Long time listener first time caller. I just got back from the Houston Auto Show and I'm only upset about one thing. They had two camaros there and both were roped off. I was hoping to sit in one but i guess not. They had a yellow 1SS/RS that was beautiful, and then they had a entry level V6 with some interesting wheels on it. I took my Nikon D90 SLR with a polarized lens on it and got some great shots. No cluster gauges in the 1SS/RS but they did have the spoiler on it!!! I was a little surprised about the gauges. I have long been debating on what color to get because they all look great and to be honest I was getting a little annoyed with the CGM guys. But then the ZR1 in CGM was at the auto show and WOW That sealed the deal on the color right away. Even the wife was in love with it! The only question is....how would it look with black stripes? The photos are a little large, I will try to get them all uploaded but im not sure if its possable.

I think the yellow would look good with stripes, but it looks to plain without them

i went and saw it today too, ill upload my pics in a minute but yeah it sucked that we couldn't sit in them... its cause the interior was not finished on them... i spotted the yellow from a mile away and was amazed when i got up close to it... i happily corrected SEVERAL people who thought the new mustang was the better buy.

Just got back from the Houston auto show and I am still pumped about the looks of the Yellow 1SS. Now I really can't wait for my Cyber Grey 2SS. I can only imagine how sweet it is going to look if the ZR1 sitting next to the camaro display is anything close to the CGM color. Met a couple of camaro5 companions at the show and had a great chat. Got to help some show visitors by answering lots of questions about the car. I passes along our great site to those that had lots of questions about the Camaro. This site is so awesome.... Those of us from the site knew more information about the Camaro than the GM people at the show.

Once I get my CGM 2SS I plan on taking it up to the Target on 2094 in Kemah on the first Saturday night I have it. They kinda have an informal classic car gathering there every Saturday night. I hope to be the very first SS owner to have one to show off in front of all the other classics, mine will be the newest classic. Have you ever been up there to check out any of the cars?

No. I just moved here over the summer from Los Angeles, so I am still learning where all the goodies are. Would you mind calling me or something when you get your car so I could come check it out? I really want to see CGM up close and personal on the Camaro, and of course meet a fellow camaro5 member who is as hyped up about this car as I am.

If it is any consolation, you couldn't sit in the Genesis Coup or the rustang either. And besides, if you have not seen a camaro in person yet, not sitting in it will only feel like a minor disappointment. Just standing and looking at the car will be a pleasure.

Yeah...not being able to sit in them due to unfinished interiors is a bummer. But, that is GM looking out for it's name when they've already had a few probs w/ QC issues years ago. Wouldn't want prospective buyers to shy away before the car even comes out, right?

I was going to take the 3 hour drive w/ the family to go check them out, but decided against it since they won't open the doors....sucks.

I've done the same thing Tag...was heading that way today but if I can't sit in one then just don't care to go!

I'm already buying the car, already know my color, already sold me on it so seeing one, without sitting and playing around in it some, wouldn't make a difference to me...hence, not going today.

Maybe Dallas...maybe, just maybe I'll be sitting in mine before I could sit in one at an auto show too

Yeah I am very busy right now so I don't see why I would make things more hectic by going down there just to see it (I have already seen the concept/bb in person). I know I will be in awe when I sit in mine anyways!

Intresting, At the LA Auto Show, where they debuted, there were plenty of the mustangs that you can sit in GT and V6
