    ordinarily the antifreeze would be on the passenger side and be due to a busted heater core. Have you felt on the passenger side at all and are you positive it's antifreeze? Could be the seal around the windshield leaking. Another thing to check is the drain tube that dumps on the passenger side at the cowl area. Those will get clogged up sometimes and force water back into the cabin but once again that's usually a passenger side problem. A T-top could also be leaking letting water drain on that side.

    i checked the passenger side first when i smelled it, its completely dry. Its only the drivers side. I know on my other 2 camaro's it was the passenger side and actually im not really sure if it is antifreeze because it doesnt have that strong smell like antifreeze does and when i touch it, it doesnt feel oily like antifreeze or slimey not sure how to explain it. Not sure whats going on and on my front windshield its started to fog up in the middle when i sit at idle for too long but i dont smell antifreeze though just water and carpet smell which has a weird stench.

    Could be your A/C drain is plugged.Not sure where Glendale is, maybe you're not using it.

    Also doing some research this is a common problem on GM vehicles and especially on certain models which is news to me. Some say especially after it rains this happens which it did start happening after the rains, i dont know.

    get under it and on the passenger side next to the firewall you should be able to find that drain and just snake it with a coat hanger.
