American Pride Camaro SS


I got dragged to the auto show a few weeks ago and I knew I'd be bored outa' my mind, so I took my camera for entertainment.

The exhibit was so uneventful that I actually forgot about the images I took so here are a few of the 2010 A/P Camaro SS before I reformat the memory card.

I think the rolling mural would have a bit more meaning if it were done on a Mustang. And this from a Chevy guy (ex).

is it airbrushed or wrapped?

and honestly it is too busy, and IMO that ruins it.

Paint job looks like a lot of talented work. But looks dopey on the car. Maybe if it was a redneck hippie van...

It was all completely airbrushed. A video of the artist in progress was on display. I sat on a bench and watched it as I nearly dosed off.

Yeah, and if they're going to depict a Corsair with servicemen around it, they could have at least used a model that actually saw service (and the production line).

Yeah, or if they had chosen a pre Government Motors vintage Camaro.

If you are refering to the Corsair it saw a lot of service during WWII especially in the Pacific and one of note Papee Boyington CO of the Black Sheep Flew the Corsair along with alot of others... One of the very best of WWII along with the P38, P51 and others.....
