2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS: Sunglasses Optional

May 24, 2010

If there's an upside to what passes for a "greenhouse" in our long-term 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS it comes in the form of light control.

I was driving it on a cloudless day this weekend and suddenly it ocurred to me: I'm not wearing my sunglasses. I hadn't put them on because I hadn't felt any need to protect my eyes from the sun's glare; the Camaro's lack of cabin glass was doing it for me.

Admittedly, it was about mid-day and the sun was almost directly overhead. Had it been late afternoon, with the car pointed west, I'm sure I'd have reached for the Ray Bans. But between the black interior that sucks up light and the pillbox style of the car's upper body I didn't need to don any protective eyewear.

Does this make up for the car's lack of outward visibility? No. But when faced with a negative circumstance we should always try to look on the bright to speak.
