General Discussion / Proto mirrors
« on: May 07, 2007, 03:40:13 PM »
On page 20 of Miller's Camaro book and in the storyboard drawing that I posted
unusual bullet shaped side mirrors are shown. Does anyone know anything about these? Were they ever produced by GM or the aftermarket?



General Discussion / 1966 Advertising mock up - photos added
« on: April 20, 2007, 01:34:58 AM »
I have a large mock up made by the advertizing firm that handled the Camaro introduction. Interestingly there are differances between what was rendered in this and what came out in the production cars. Most notably the mock up nose apears about 3 inches longer (more like a Jag), and the turn signals on the standard grill which are in the valance the same as an RS. The round grill lights are rendered as driving lights like a Mustang GT.  I wondered if anyone else has come across this preproduction light idea?

There are other changes (fender eyebrows, mirrors, striping, vett spinner hubcaps, etc.) made to the ad before it apeared in Life magazine. Also copy was added that in the mock up show as squiggly lines.

Your thoughts?
