2010 Chevy Camaro SS: One Detail They Missed

October 19, 2009


Despite the fact that my first car was a Cortez Silver 1969 Camaro RS convertible, and I rallied for our long-termers Silver finish for sentimental reasons, I sometimes wish we had gotten our 2010 Camaro SS in black.

Why? Well, there are three reasons.

1) Every single car ever made looks best in black. Of course keeping it clean is a killer, but there's no denying the appeal.

2) The CAMARO badging on the car's front fenders are chrome and have thin letters so they get a bit lost when the car is silver.

3) The shark fin antenna on the Camaro's roof is black and not bodycolor and it just looks like Chevy forgot something, or worse like they installed the wrong one on my car at the factory. Personally I find this to be troubling on a car this expensive.

Meanwhile, despite my whining the thing stops traffic.
