That Photoshop looks awesome! But, I'll let someone else have the black ones, way to hard to keep clean. I'll take a white one and sit back relaxing in shade watching them clean the black ones!

I love the look of the car! But i agree with most everyone else the exhaust should be in front of the rear wheels. Like this. I can't take credit for this 'chop, but I did add the exhaust and the wishful thinking of a Lingenfelter edition.

Man, each time I see a new chop in a different color I I have to completely rethink the color I will have to get mine in.... that maroon with grey stripes looks mean! I have a feeling I am going to have a very difficult time att he dealership!

BTW, I love the Lingenfelter addition. I can't wait to see what they come up with for this car! If I only had a few grand to send it up there :o ....

I GAURANTEE someone will have hideaway headlight packages for this baby. Heck Mr. Lutz has said he expects someone to have it at the '08 SEMA show. Based on the pictures in sweet renderings that some have done on photoshop, I bet someone will make hood like the blue one with SS 396 stacks. By the way the black SS with hideaways is awsome. Loose the sidepipes and make the grill's SS a little smaller and that's my car. I especially like the straight bars in that grill over the squares. By the way I've had three black cars and they're no harder to keep clean than any other color. Keep it in the garage and use a quality polish (Zaino is THEEE best) and you'll have no problems.

:eek: What?! Provided you have a garage, only drive it on nice days, and have lots of polish (Zaino) on it!

I'm not trying to start an argument. Regardless of color, all vehicle's are easy to keep clean provided you use quality products. It's just some colors need to be washed, polished, etc. more often to maintain a nice appearance.

Ya I agree with moose my Black Camaro is hard to keep clean. Hell, it gets dirty just sitting in the garage from the dust. I mean if you run a Black car out a dirt road really slow, you can still get out and there dust will be showing on the paint. But with a lighter color car, you really can not see the dust if you really don't look for it.

My black car gets dusty, but I just breakout the california duster and we're good.

I certainly hope they do the same as with the 4th Gens. Put the DRL in the amber blinkers.

OR better yet, NO DRL's! I hate them. And a LOT (if not most) of new cars don't have them anymore. Though I am thinking of America. Canada I have no idea if they're still stuck with the horrible things.

Though they should add a way to defeat the AutoOn headlights if it has it.

If they made the halo the DRL that wouldnt' be bad. But I'd still want a way to disable them when I felt like it.

I love the red interior damn it would be awsome to be setting along the road with just the halo lights a burning. The cars coming at you it would look like eyes to them.

I really like the hideaways.

I'm not sure what is involved in manufacturing them, but I hope it isn't a huge logistical problem for GM or add too much weight.

I hate daytime running lights on GM vehicles. Look at the CTS or corvette. Both have nasty orange lights. When I get my Camaro, I'll do the same as my 6: Hyperwhite/HID (Blue-ish White) Lights and Headlights in the front and sides and only red out back for brakes and turn signals. No orange plastics either. And if possible, how about black light bezels and covers? Niteshades will work if I have to do it myself.

Anyways, hideaway with halos??? As in, around the lights. Either way, I want factory HID's and foglights.

Personnally I think every after market company and GM are viewing this web sight to get imput as to what the consumer is talking about and wants. If you look at the total threads that are here on every subject from wheels, stripes, engine choices, rear window up/down, interior colors. We have touched on every conceivable subject and option. Trust me I believe they're listening to us on this web site. I hate to boast, but we probably are the pulse of the Camaro customer. Especially those talented photo shop designers with some GREAT modifications. They're listening.

I generally don't like the hideaways, but if they come similar to those I could get interested.

I am pro-Z28,... but I've alway liked the RS hideaways. But perhaps we all can have the best of both worlds,... like RS/Z28. Limited production,... but higher price though.
