STORY BY : TEH HUNTER!!

 

It's six o’clock in the morning. It's dark. I'm riding in an S2000. It's Saturday. One might ask what I am doing up at 0600 on a Saturday, better yet why am I up at 0600 on a Saturday driving through the rain.

The answer is simple really…

[Whisper] The Camaros are coming [/Whisper] 

So I know some people who know some people, and scored some tickets to the Austin Auto Show GM preview (no crowds, catered breakfast, invite only!),  and to make the deal even better:  3 new 5th Gens to play with.

A little breakfast a little tech review and then 2 hours to take pictures, next step is going to be getting my hands on some keys.

Enjoy the pics (captions below the pics....some pics I took, some are by Jason Fry: http://www.depthoffry.com/ )

The Guys that made the 5th Gen happen

 

Weeee Little trunk. If you need to move a body, a DTS may still be your best bet!

 

 

Gotta love those hips

 

Yellow LS V6

 

 

Camaro vs Challenger

 

 

17 inch steel wheels… I guess it snows in some parts of the country.

 

I am guessing this is the same stamping from the 69.

 

 

Silver 1LS, You know when I first took this I thought it really pointed out how the car needs the spoiler but I'm kinda starting to like it.

 

THANKS FOR THE REPORT AND PICS HUNTER!!! -Costas

Costas: Weird...a few days before this event that Hunter went to in Austin, I saw this yellow 5th in San Antonio. I think the sign above it fits!
