I don't think he will be able to get that. I think the cars will be up and away for nobody to touch. but lets hope they open a door and show off the damn lighting cuz i want a pic of it too.

Looks like they may have the door open on the silver one but I wouldn't count on it having the ambient lighting.

The Black one might have it since it seems to have power running to it at least.

Nope. Scott said that no one will be sitting the auto show cars until they are the saleable units. These are all pre-production models.

Light pipes aren't operational -- these are both very very early cars -- the Silver car was built, I believe, last December..........

So when do you think we get to see the light pipes? And thanks for all the hard work you do Scott.

So I went to the LA Autoshow VIP tonight and it was nothing really special (for the Camaro). Two show car Camaros (Can't sit in them or anything. They were blocked off). Camaro Black and a silver Camaro SS (non RS). Of course I took pictures, but I didn't really find the need to post them, since we've seen these cars a million times, but the ONLY thing I didn't understand was the whole ambient lighting thing because we really have never seen it, suprisingly. So I asked the person in charge to show me. The Camaro Black did not have ambient lighting but the silver SS did. It had the inferno orange trim package on it and when he turned on the lights, I faintly saw what exactly the ambient lighting was. It was bright in the convention center so it was hard to see, which bummed me out. I pretty much EXACTLY like the Camaro Ignition video on YouTube here:
. I took a video of it and I will post it soon, but if anyone goes tomorrow get a better video of it (my camera phone wasn't the best quality). Overall I was very impressed that the ambient lighting is what it was projected to be. I can't imagine, I saw it when lights were everywhere..I can't imagine it at night

I'll just post one picture (cause it was taken by my friend)
