Poll #1: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=197784

Eventually, after MUCH debate (as per Post #76 Page 4), a revised Yes or No poll was created: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=200804

However...partly from the THREE questions asked and answered in the FIRST poll??...there is NOW a 1SS-based 1LE...which may NOT have happened had we simply had the Yes or No poll, first...
The whole concept of an LE is limited equipment with performance. I honestly don't care what the polls say. to be true to the LE concept the base 1SS is where is should have started. And everything should be an option there afterwards. And to me ordering a 2SS with the LE is kind of defeating the purpose of the LE concept. I'm not calling the camaro a luxury vehicle but the 2SS has a lot of luxury over the 1SS.

but if I ordered an LE and wanted leather seats I should add that option. If I wanted a hud I should add that option.

The Polls could have been done to prove a point. two thoughts behind the scenes one saying it should only be made one way and another with the truest mind set of the LE concept. And the polls only reconfirmed that.
