So is everyone from before going to be able to make it?
If not how do I get on this team as an alternate. I have been in every generation F-body made and have just a few of the generations in my garage
I have a few opinions
I'll keep mine very general and realistic.
Get rid of the retro interior. People want the look
of a 69 with the modernness of a 2010.
Why do you think LSx swapped 69 camaros bring more then stock cars a lot of times, but ones with gen 1 SBC swap bring less. Again people want modern. (even more then numbers matching which says something)
Use the best most modern interior you can find.
To stop what someone might do:
No fake woodgrain. Nuff said.
Brushed aluminum is ok in places but a lot of times over done and done wrong.
When in doubt keep it consistent and don't break up the lines with contrasting colors(ex: black leather with red woodgrain window switch trim)
The current interior does suck. I've seen a brand new car with the center console side panel coming off. Also the rear seat area where the plastic just kind of comes down and ends against the carpet is so cheap looking.
I could go on about the current interior but doing that implies I want it salvaged, when in fact I want it sent to the depths of hell and someone from one of the other divisions to design the next interior.
The new interior needs a screen. Not just for Nav, but for oh so much more. I've discussed this in detail before so that's all I am going to say.
Power adjust and lumbar seats on both sides?
Next thing is the roof. Only f-body where I can't roll the window down, rest my elbow on the window sill and hook my thumb under the roof, because it's so fricking short a window.
Honestly as much as people called the 4thgen a cave, which it is, I am surprised more people haven't complained about this. I gave it a chance and thought maybe the chop top look was more from the outside, but no I was wrong, it's exactly like that on the inside. In coming years I see this becoming the equivalent of the 4thgen cave.
Yes I know safety this or government that makes you raise the belt line and well that's an engineering problem, I'm just telling you what I don't like.
Everyone likes colors, so give them colors. Synergy green is great. But why the heck would you limit it to a v6 version when the people passionate enough to want it probably want a v8 'collector' car. And what about all the other colors? You can load them in a spray gun for a cobalt or aveo etc, but not the camaro?
I'd talk about the exterior but your going to refresh it so since I don't know what that will look like what's the point. I'd just be talking about stuff that's getting changed regardless. Smaller? lighter? dead horse?
I'm going to stop there. Notice I didn't even bother with radical changes because I have a feeling this meeting will be even less insightful then before. I imagine you'll just get asked very minor questions like do you prefer a charcoal or black interior. Not what do you think of an LSA and Solid axle.
