Seeing the 5th gen @ LA '08 for the first time...

To say pics don't do the car justice is a bit of an understatement. I was blown away with what I saw today seeing the car for the first time up close and personal. I bumped into Blackzbandit at the show as well and we chatted for a while. Cool guy who knows his stuff about the Camaro and GM. Enjoy the pics...more to come later...

I liked the volt concept and could live with the new and improved volt but that interior is hideous...someone here tell me thats just preproduction.

Actually....the look of the Volt is growing on me. I LOVED the original look of the Volt...very cool. And then, they had to go and redesign it.... I know...due to aerodynamics and all. But, it grew on me and I think it looks pretty good.

Thanks for sharing the pix with us!

Who in the hell stole the gas pedal? It's not like someone is going to jump in the car and drive it off the display.

Those are the 21" LPO wheels (or at least similar). Those are dealer installed and come in polished and a black painted, but not sure if they are exactly the same as the ones on the black SEMA car.

Based on the headlights and tails...I'll say polished as this is not an RS car based on a few things.

Anyone else know?

Great pix Scotsman... you even caught a couple of me!


I brought my camera but the batteries were almost dead so I only snapped a couple of pix of the interiors, no good ones though.

^HA! That's Sean. He gets to memorize all the scrips for different vehicles. At the San Antonio auto show, he was talking about the Volt and all the other 'green' vehicles.

Was a pleasure meeting you bandit!

The power of the attraction to the 5thgen is absolutely magnetic. Especially the Camaro Black concept. That car looks ridiculous in person, absolutely INSANE.

I saw the ambient lighting in the silver ss its sick I asked that one lady who was there and she showed me it was hard to see though so i didnt take any pics but from what u could see it looks great if only they turned off all the lights then you could really take a pic.

Likewise and I agree 100%. After we fiished talking In hung around for another 20 minutes and came back twice. Literally most of my day was spent at the Camaro display... it had me hooked!

I didn;t like the bodykit on the BLACK when I saw it in the SEMA pix but in person it looks great; I definitely moved it to the 'maybe' list.

From what the booth professional Sean told me at the Auto Show... no. BUT, I wouldn't be surprised if he were wrong.

You can always get black chrome on the wheels as well. Don't know how much that costs though...

I thought that was brian????

He did a really good job at the show. He was by far the most knowledgeable on that stage and answered every question that was thrown at him.
