The SS mail slot

I've been vocal about the fake scoop in the past. After seeing these cars up close last night I'm still mixed, but I do like the SS header better visually.

Still bummed it is non-functional, but at least the uplevel Camaro finally looks different at a glance than the V6 model

Still not liking it. It's like a fashion model with a scar on her cheek. Sure, it's desirable overall and isn't a deal-breaker, just that one little nagging thing that you KNOW is always there. At least they didn't put it where you'd be seeing it all the time, and Mustangs will never see it.

Yes, I wish it were functional...but I kinda like it anyway...that's a good picture of it and the area behind it.

I'm sure somebody will come up with a molded plastic, color matched, velcro attached filler part for it. That would give everyone the option of having or filling the mail slot at any time.

velcro

I'd have it professionally molded in before I used any type of tacky temp fix.
