Me either. It looks strange when it opens up that way. I understand why it has to with headroom and all, but... no thanks.

Nice

That red is awesome on the car. I thank the tent coat looks better, it's a deeper color with more pop.

Why don't GM put any stripes on any of the hard tops that are out and about @ the shows or for photos with the mag. We have to keep photo shopping everything??

You have to like it - you ordered it on your Camaro. But that sunroof looks bad and detracts from an otherwise beautiful red Camaro RS. The proof of this? Your eyes are drawn to the ugly sunroof in every pic that shows it open. The pics where it is closed let you appreciate the whole car better. I don't care how functional you think it may be; the car looks so much better without it.

Wow, the picture from the rear looking down at the rear window and trunk lid really shows how big the "hips" (quarter panels) are. Can't wait to inspect one close up!

Great pictures of the red Camaro RS. But I'm trying to visualize some white rally stripes on it and I'm a little bit worried. I haven't really seen any pictures of Camaros with the actual rally stripes - just photoshops people have done. And I've read somewhere here on Camaro5 that the rally stripes do NOT extend onto the front fascia at all. The first gen Camaro Z/28 stripes extended all the way to the nose of the car. And the second gen Z/28 stripes carried onto the fascia (my hugger orange '70-1/2 Z/28 had black stripes like that). I know it will be easier to install the stripes (both at the factory and at various dealers) if they don't have to mess with the gap between the hood and front fascia or the "mail slot" non-functional scoop in the fascia of the SS. But I'm afraid that they made the decision to limit the stripes to the hood (and rear decklid) for those reasons, and the stripes won't look as good as they would have if they were more like the second gen Z/28 stripes. I'm guessing that the few people who order their Camaros without stripes and then have them painted on will extend the stripes onto the front fascia because it will look better. What do you think?

I do not like the look of the sunroof. The panoramic sunroof design of GM's pontiac G6 is much nicer.

That's what I'm talking about, I did order mine with stripes from GM I hope they look good or I'll have 2 take them off and paint my own. It just seems like they would get some photos with the stripes out unless they are still working on how the stripes will look like.

That's actually just the lens the photographer used... it makes things that are closer look wider. There's a front view photo where the grille looks really wide and ominous too. It's done for the dramatic affect.

Now.... that brings us to the issue of people comparing the spy photos to the "beauty" shots of the concept. Most of the people taking spy shots were using small consumer cameras with regular zoom lenses and not a "wide angle" lens like this. OF COURSE the concept is going to look more dramatic and the spy shots are going to look a lot flatter and duller. It's the lenses!

I've never had an issue with the styling. I think they get the concept "spot on" with the V-6 camaro. I don't feel the love for the SS nose and never will. The sunroof opening outside the body was another "nails on a chalkboard" moment for me a few weeks ago when we first saw it. I took a lot of heat for not liking these parts of the car.

Now, if they get around to telling us they're going to offer blue on the SS and/or a HUD in a reasonable amount of time, then I'll be the first in line to get one.

Sunroof really doesn't look that bad to me. But still not willing to give up the reverse mohawk roof.
