I think the cars in Detroit and Montreal look great, especially the VR. I can't wait to get mine with the factory installed stripes. I am not sure why people can't be pleased with the package that GM has given us. It isn't SUPPOSED to be just like a 1969, or a 1974, etc. It is supposed to be a 2010, aware of its heritage, but reinventing itself.
Not a deal breaker just we have to make other arrangements. I'm pretty tolerant, the mail slot stripes I can understand, but the rear stripes is downright fugly

I made that assumption on the grounds that the Barrett-Jackson car is using the exact same stripe package as the Detroit and Montreal cars. If there is a lot of stripe underneath the spoiler, then there will be enough vinyl to lay it down the way you want.

In this picture, there is no way to tell how much striping is underneath the spoiler:

Yes, if it's the same package I suppose you're right. But then that also means that at no additional cost, they can still change them to the rear of the spoiler based on our poll here http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11857 which shows a nearly 90% favor of that.
Obviously there is still a lot of indecision on GM's part as to how the stripes should be done. First the bumblebee version, then within a few days of each other the NAIAS and B.J. versions. Why so many about-faces? Are they trying to confuse buyers? They sure are doing a good job of it. Wonder how they'll be done in Fedruary?
I personally don't understand stopping them in the middle of a surface, be it the front or rear of the spoiler. At least at the bottom of the rear of the spoiler there is a natural break between two body parts.
Sorry, I'm frustrated.

I like over the spoiler best but I'll take either one. I like both, just prefer over the spoiler.

I think GM has done an awesome job on the Camaro...only wish the "final" version of stuff would be brought forward to know exactly what we are getting!

Well so much of what they've changed is in response to feedback we've given them. So as long as they're still willing to listen to us AND other customers then I'm definitely open to changes. Last minute tweaks like this can really help the little details that make a car shine.

So any word on

"The hockey stick stripe package comes with hockey stick stripes down the side, a large stripe down the hood and trunk of the car which is about the width of the raised area of the hood, and a back panel black out treatment decal"

We seen the RS production ones now what are these going to be like?

There's a video around here somewhere of a white SS with these stripes in black...

Give me a second to find it...

P.S. - Here's some still shots from the video. The video itself can be found here.

Which stripes go to the end of the hood?

I want the rally stripes, but I heard they don't go to the end of the hood. Is that true? Why do they stop short?
