Oh that's kinda cool.

I've used the HD Go Pro for a couple of years. It is simply amazing and I highly recommend it.
When I mount it on the roll cage between and behind the two front seats, the video shows all the gauges in detail, along with the entire view from outboard of both external rear view mirrors through the entire windshield. In full 1080p. The only problem is that a 25 minute video is like 6 GB.

Is that with the standard lense or wide angle?

That's the standard lens. With the 1080p format, you have a very wide field of view. Even with that field of view, I can read the speedometer and tachometer.....
One problem that I did have, I can't play it back off of a DVD on my TVs Bose 321 system. I believe that the files for the HD Go Pro are MPG 4 files. Perhaps it will play on a Blue Ray player. Otherwise, I just watch it on the computer.

+1 on the gopro comments--just be sure you know what you're doing. Without a preview, you can't be sure.

GoPro just came out with the LCD BacPac so it should help in that regard.

I've helped friends and family with installation and programing Home-Theaters + Calibrating TVs & Sound Systems and always get repeated calls days weeks and yes months later when they can't figure out how to get picture or sound or remember how to get the Blu-Ray player to work because they don't RTFM!!!

The camera brings up a red light on the front when recording (at least on mine). I just look for the red light on the camera and know that its cooking.....

The SS with the N/A 6.2 engine curb weight is 3860. Adding a supercharger, intercooler, heat exchanger and all those additional features will certainly add weight probably in the CTS-V category of 4250 lbs. I wouldn't be surprised to see a price tag similar to the CTS-V as well at around $65k.

So bottom line is looks like they put a Camaro body on a CTS-V platform and are targeting the GT500. At that estimated weight along with the supercharger, it doesn't seem to be the ideal road course car they advertise. That said, it would give a stock GT500 a run for its money I think. Better suspension and brakes, but worse power:weight ratio.

Just left the Cleveland auto show. They had a silver LS. It was sweet, I have a CO on order, I might change my mind.

Champion Ford, Katy, TX has a new Performance White Boss #1791(I believe) on the showroom floor. Asking a $5k ADM for a total price of $48,100. They also have a great looking Performance White Mach1 on display that has a functional shaker hood scoop. Think the sticker was $34,700.
