I hope the new Chevy dealership here has one soon. They just opened about a week ago and this thing is huuuuuge, at least 3 times the size of any other dealership I've seen in the area.

Everything looks good to me, I wouldn't complain

How can you not order this car based on looks???? I'm just messing with ya, be smart about what you decide to do..I just knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted it...I can't believe that my first test drive will be taking it home!! Good luck with whatever you decide to do and I hope you can get one!

just a question i dont want to start a new thread but

lets say a fully loaded lt2/rs vert is hm around 29k to 31k what would be a good down payment?

i wonder how many show cars they have?

did the yellow camaro have the rs package?

how did the view look from sitting in the car looking out the front?

your so lucky!

I think that any where from a third to half of the car would be a good down payment to get payments within a resonable amount. Looking out the front of this car is an experience, you see the hood scoop one front and it just feels so wide. I didn't get to sit in it long but I was so cool for the minute or two I was in it. Its really hard to describe...I want it even more now than I did before I ordered it..it just keeps getting better.

Totally get that. Even if I did have the money right now to buy it I'd wait until I'd been able togo for a test drive. That and I want the HUD so no Camaro for a few years for me in any case.

Well Justin Congrats man. I'm jealous that your getting an SS as well. I hope you do enjoy. Tell me one thing, how did the interior feel. I know its "production intent", but just for the record, it didn't feel cheap, did it? Also, will you be getting an A6 or M6? Tell us some more details as you find out some more info. Agian ---- CONGRATS

didn't order - but saw this one also...

Impressed, I was.
The 'presence' of this car, in person impressed me.
I was there for a half hour or so...
This dealer is where my company buys trucks.
My pics duplicate these & others, but:

Sorry.

Happy to have had an opportunity to see one

I also attended this event. I've been looking at the Camaro for over a year now, and seeing it in person was more incredible than I had imagined. When leaving, I actually had to turn around and go back because I wanted to see it again!

I did hear something slightly disheartening though. I asked Greg English (one of their internet sales guys) about potential pricing, knowing full well that official numbers are not out. He thinks the car we were looking at (LT2 RS) will run a high 28K to 31K. This threw me off a little, so I asked what he thought the base price of a Camaro would be, and he said "around $26,000." I'm hoping he meant just the LT2 and not the LS. What do you think Justin? I'm assuming that you probably got to talk price a lot more than I did. I don't want to turn this into a pricing thread, I just want to know if you think he's spot on or over shooting. I suppose this would also go to whether or not they will really charge MSRP.

BTW, nice pics. I took some as well, but you got my angles and then some, so I'll avoid cluttering things here. Thanks and congrats!

Well the guy I was dealing with said the car we were looking at was probably around 27, but once again he assured me that he didn't know for sure either...his best guess on the SS was around 33...so I don't know...The guy you talked to might have been overshooting a little bit, but really no one knows at this time...just some very educated guesses...If I had to guess i would say bone stock ls would start at 23, and then the V8 would start at 30(just my educated guess). But I think we will find out sooner than later.

The price question seems to continue to come up. What Fbodfather has said several times is that it will be competitively priced with the Mustang. Rather than making wild guesses or trying to interpret some other guy who has no ideas wild guess just take a look at the price of a comperable Mustang, add perhaps a couple of percent for the added content of the Camaro and you will have a pretty accurate price.

What we know for sure is that the Camaro was designed and is being built to compete first and foremost with the Mustang. The folks in the know have made it clear it will be competitively priced that is enough for me to determine the price will be about what a Mustang would cost.
