There is a lenghty thread in this forum discussing hidden headlights.

IMO, there will be aftermarket conversions most likely, but not production.

Thanks for the heads up Moose...I'm new, but I'll do a search. And yes, I fully expect them to be aftermarket considering he said they'll be released at SEMA, which is an aftermarket show. I attend every year, and it's the best show you could EVER see! Last year I took over 300 pics in fact!

Scott had said no on the hideaways. But, you all know GM. They can change their minds in a split second. Personally, I LOVE the looks and would add it as an option to my special order Camaro.

This is exactly the car I am getting or as close to it as possible. 2 matching convertivles with stripes.

I only like it on the black car, the silver kinda looks ricer-like with those things...idk

I plan on getting either Imperial Blue or Silver so again-idk(cool overall idea though)

and whats wrong with the intake on the hood- that adds menace, man!!

GM is excited about that-because they can make it successfully with plastic now-a-days
back in 69 they would have liked to, but steel just doesn't bend like that.

Everybody is saying logistics are preventing GM from doing hideaway out the factory, I agree. There of course will be aftermarket sets though Im sure.

That red interior is a bit too much red for me..... The hideaways are kind of cool, but I will stick with those halos instead.

I'm hoping to see the aftermarket step up as well. Although, it better look like a factory product. Otherwise, it'll just come off looking cheap. Hopefully if GM isn't doing it, they at least package the front end to leave room for an aftermarket company to do it well.

ohh ya I really like I agree mine is going to be black to. But one thing I don't like is wee the pipes exit. I want mine coming out the back. Now all they need is the SS hood scopp like on the last gen camaro, and that would seal the deal

I am with you on the exhaust. Not really a fan of the side exit, but other than that...

I have wondered about the teardrop hood. I am not sure if it would work on top of that nose vent. The renderings I have come across that have the hood scoop all have had the nose vent removed which makes me wonder.
