I do have a solution for you to carry 2 bikes with your 2017 Chevrolet Camaro, but the Hollywood Racks Baja 2 # HRB2 is not confirmed to fit.

I spoke with my contact at Hollywood Racks who looked up your 2017 Camaro in their most recent fit guide and the Expedition 2 Bike Carrier # HRF6-2 is the trunk mount option that is a confirmed fit.

Even though there is a trunk mount option for you, I recommend installing the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24938 and using it with a hitch mounted bike rack. Hitch mounted bike racks (especially ones that only hold 2 bikes) are much quicker and easier to remove than trunk mounted bike racks, plus it eliminates anything touching the finish on your Camaro.

I recommend using the Kuat Beta # B202-114 for a hanging hitch mount bike rack. This rack is also an aluminum rack so it is rustproof and easy to maneuver, plus it comes fully assembled, has the tilting and folding features, and has an integrated anti-rattle device. It does not include locks for security but they can easily be added with the Kuat Hitch Lock # KUATLOCK and a Cable Lock # e98891.

On most hanging style bike racks (including trunk mount options) an Adapter Bar, like part # UB01, is needed for bikes that do not have a horizontal cross tube like a traditional men's bike has. If you use the Expedition you may need to use the adapter bar to ensure that your bike stays level and has the best possibly ground clearance. The two hitch mounted options I recommended actually have a shorter spread between their arms which eliminates the need for an adapter bar for most bikes.

I have attached some review videos of the bike racks as well as an installation video on a similar Camaro for you to check out.
