Met the movie star!



On the other side of the car from me is Scott Settlemire from General Motors, a good friend of mine.
He was brand manager of Camaro up until 2002, and was the instrumental voice in getting F-Body production to stay on through 2002.. it was supposed to die after 1998. Thus, he is known as "The F-Bodfather".
He is now Manager of Shows & Exhibits for Chevrolet and Hummer, but he is also involved in the development of the new Camaro.

Here's all the pictures I took from all the weekend's events (almost 300 pics):

That's the Chevrolet SS Concept car.
It was shown on the auto show circuit in 2003.
I have no clue what chassis it's built on, if any.

I know that isn't a 'real' camaro..but looking at the headlights and everything..it looks like it could be resembling the actual production camaro. More so than the concept, anyway.

I remember this truck being built at a local off road shop. I got to see its progress.

It mentions when the camaro comes into production, though. That's what confuses me a bit.

Yeah the plaque there is describing the concept car.

Interestingly enough.... the SS Concept...
Remember the "430hp 6.0L V8"? That was the first appearance of an LS2.
Also check out its wheels... 21" front, 22" rear.

Spooky isn't it.
