    If you can get the hole filled you can get a hidden antenna. You could mount it under the dash panel.

    I've got one and I like it much better. The reception is about the same.

    I had an extra stock antenna, so I used my dremel to shorten it to 10-12 inches. Get great reception and love the looks of it much better.

    I thought Camaros had retractable antenna's or is that just a Firebird thing? I always assumed they were the same. If not that shorty one looks way better than a 2ft one by far

    Just a Firebird thing, Camaro's didn't have retractable.
