Hideaway Headlights as an Aftermarket Accessory!!??

Pause this clip of the Sema Preview GM put out at 24 sec! You can see a tech working on a front grill that has hideway headlights! If this becomes a option count me in!!

I believe I'm going to wait at least a year before ordering my Camaro!
I believe there will be a ton of things that will come out in the future where patience will prevail on my side e.g. - price, more options, convertable, Z28 ect!

Funny my Dad and I were just talking tonight about hideaway headlight option. I was showing him a pic of a black camaro with the RS package and halo lights and he was mentioned be nice if chevy made the RS package with the hideaway headlights again. My 69 Z I had, had this option.
Time will tell I guess....

Cool video.
That looked like a mockup grille and the bars over where the headlamps would be appeared to be solid.

To me it looks like that grille stops before the headlights like the stock one.

Well, I guess we'll find out soon enough!

The curve on the ends curve in, which make me believe it stops before the headlight like the stock one. if it curved ou, then I would agree. It looks like the grille in the accessory mock up.

I had an idea for a hideaway grill design, but would love to patent that baby.
