Last week, we told you about Bob Lutz's Fastlane Blog post in which he stated that the production Camaro is as awesome as the concept. If you clicked through to read it in its entirety, you'll recall that one of the Aussie anecdotes that Maximum Bob recounted involved GM Design honcho Ed Welburn going up to the camo-clad Camaro prototype and hugging it. Well, as Lutz stated, someone in the group had a camera with them and captured the moment for posterity. Today, Fastlane posted it online, and if we're not mistaken, this is the first official shot of the production Camaro, camouflaged or otherwise. We'd prefer otherwise, of course, but we'll take what we can get, so camo it is. If you stare at the pattern long enough, we think it turns into a Calvin-style sticker of Bob Lutz whizzing on the Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang.

      I am hoping for no B-Pillar because I can give a rip how stuff the chassis and body is I'll sacrafice driving dynamics for looks because if I care about driving dynamics I'd buy a Miata (wait I have one), but that's just me.

      I can't tell if there is a b pillar. However, those look like C6 Vette mirrors and not the ones from the concept.

      Heres the one that GM doesn't have the balls to display on their page. Remember the comments section is only for praise.
      "Oh, yeah baby! Can't wait to swing that heavy ass door wide open in a parking spot while trying not to scratch the BMW, or Acura next to me. Gotta remember not to get my mullet caught in the glass, or pull my groin trying to hop into that puppy either.
      Where's my Van Halen CD? Oh yeah it's in the back so I might as well forget about ever seeing it again. Doesn't matter-I can listen to the sweet sounds of my non direct-injection, non multi-valve, non variable-phase, non overhead cam engine, in my nearly 4000 pound piece o'crap Mcmaro. I'm lovin it!"

      I frequently hug my camaro as well. Its a hugable car.

      That pic doesn't disprove the presence of a B-pillar. It could still be a little bit out of sight. It would seem that Mr. Ed is in fact trying to hide the B-pillar from the photog.

      Like I said yesterday, can't wait for the pony car wars to fire up again!

      Note that the passenger-side windows, when you look through the windshield, are uninterrupted by a B-pillar. Either there is no B-pillar on the production version (contrary to recent reports), or this isn't it.

        You're right, no B-pillar. We'll have to wait and see if it really makes in to production this way.
        It was said that Challenger would have a B-pillar so Camaro might have played them, who knows.

      Looks like the Camaro will be very close to the concept like the new Challenger.

      Either the car won't have a b-pillar or it will be added to prototypes later.
