With the return of Chevrolet's Camaro all but certain, we're pretty much reduced to playing the speculation game over option levels... and waiting. In the meantime, as thoughts of smokey burnouts and parking-lot doughnuts pepper our imagination, click on over to Popular Hot Rodding's website via the link below to read the behind-the-scenes story of the Camaro Concept's battle to go from the drawing board to the floor of the 2006 Detroit auto show. The author of the story wisely lets designer Tom Peters (a veteran of the 2nd- and 3rd-gen Camaro) tell the story, with several paragraphs of direct quotes. If you're a Camaro fan, it's a great read, and even if you're not, it's still an interesting piece of insight into what it takes to move a concept through corporate red-tape.
