Autoblog reader snags aborted Camaro concept shots on NAIAS TV broadcast

You've gotta love TiVo. The magic time-shifting set-top boxes have changed the way we watch television, allowing the auto-obsessed to catch Formula One without having to stay up to the wee hours of the AM or for auction buffs not to miss the going rate when the hammer drops at Barrett-Jackson just as the wife's 'Honey-Do' list beckons unexpectedly.

Or, in the case of Autoblog reader Jeff C., it allows you to snag screenshots of the Chevrolet Camaro that General Motors' CEO Rick Wagoner nixed in the eleventh-hour, pushing designers to create the concept that eventually premiered at the NAIAS earlier this month. The shots come courtesy of Detroit's own WDIV Channel 4's coverage of the show.

The studio shot glimpses reveal a couple of different design ideas that were done away with, including a significantly shorter real deck with a fastback roofline (as on the clay model after the jump).

So, did GM make the right call? Follow the jump to check out more shots, then leave your comments and let 'em know what you think. We don't know about you, but we smell a poll coming on...
