Dimensions

I am ordering a new enclosed trailer and what to make sure that the 5th gen (along with the first 4 generations) will be able to fit correctly. The trailer will have a door on the driver side so you don't have to crawl out of the cars. I have looked at the spec sheet for the new car, but need some other dimensions that maybe someone on the site has. Here are some dimensions I would like to have:

1. Distance from either the front or rear wheel center line to the back of the drivers side door.
2. Distance from either the front or back bumper cover to the back of the drivers side door.
3. Distance from the front bumper cover (the farthest forward point preferably) to the center line of front wheel.
4. Distance from back bumper cover to the center line of the rear wheel.
5. Height from bottom of door to ground.

Additional question:
The "track" dimension, is that from the outside edge to outside edge of the tire/wheel?

I know that a lot of the above dimensions are pretty much the same, but the answer to just one or two would be helpful.

Thanks

I doubt anyone has all those dimensions. I suggest finding a side on shot and overlay a gird and use that. Do the same thing with front and rear pictures.

I figured that no one would, but was worth a shot. Can't believe I didn't think of the grid. Thanks

All information currently known is on the camaro5.com wiki.

once more detailed information becomes available the wiki will be updated as well.

for wanting such detailed information your gonna have to do tape measurements at a display that you can actually get close to, not be barred from.

frankly with the wiki information you can make a pretty damn good idea of the scaling your needing. otherwise wait 4 months

It was a long shot, but hoping maybe, just maybe somebody took some of these measurements while at the Indy Bash. My father was suppose to, but didn't while there and unfortunately I was unable to make it to Indy myself. With that being said, I will do some scaled measurements like mentioned in the second post of the thread.

You know what you might want to do? Print out this picture on an 8.5x11; it's the SS, and it's still to scale. Grab a ruler, and use the overall length measurement Camarospike provided to setup some ratios. You can do some simple math and come out with real close (not 100% accurate) measurements of what you're looking for. Sound okay?
