Corvette buyers most likely have more disposable income leftover after buying than we will lol. So me personally, I have no desire to pay to fly myself out for this.

But I would be interested in high-def pics of my car being built. I'd pay $200 for that. They're basically free for GM to produce and email to me. Put the $200 in your pocket, GM, and make it happen

I want a Z.

But being in France, there's no way I'd pay to go get a car at the factory ... I wouldn't even come back with it (it would take the boat ... not me!)

If I bought a Z28, I would like a Grand Am Sunoco Pit Pass... Drive your car to the event of choice, dress with the pit crew and watch the race from the pits... Afterwards, a simple photo shoot with your Z28 and the Sunoco Camaro, pics with the team, autographs pics and a chance to open track after the race with Matt Bell or Jeff Bucknum coaching in shotgun... That would be fun...

I would say put me down for $1500 for the Pit Pass, Pics of my Z28 w/the Sunoco with John Handcocks from crew and drivers on the pics and an open track with Matt/Jeff shotgun crew chief...

Oh yeah, and the $1500 gets you the Sunoco Blue paint job with Sunoco yellow front fender stripes and wheels...

i'd pay that in a heartbeat.

i'd pay around $1000 for that, with the addition of all the manuals and instructional/reference materials used by the factory to build the cars (if this wasn't included in your original idea).

i wouldn't say i spent that much on acquiring what i could for my 71 monte, but i'd pay very well to have all that come with my Z28 when i order it.

There will never be a museum or delivery option for the Camaro. Very few customers are in Canada or willing to go to Canada to pick up their car.[/QUOTE]

Not an attempt to hijack, but a common thread through many of these posts seems to be a desire for official documentation of some sort...

GM Canada has a department known as "Vintage Vehicle Sevices"
http://vintagevehicleservices.com/

GM Canada is able to officially document and provide production info (build date and location, selling dealer, all RPO codes etc. for any GM vehicle produced in Canada or built in the U.S. and sold in Canada.
Here is a sample of the production documentation:
http://vintagevehicleservices.com/le...ple_opt_55.pdf

Also included in the Vintage Vehicle Package is a comprehensive booklet of virtually all Engineering Specifications for your specific year and vehicle line.

I can't remember the latest price , but a quick call to the number listed on the website would confirm $... I believe it's in the area of CDN$65.00 now.

I think it's a great piece of official documentation for any vehicle - and there is some really useful info in the engineering specs book.

Best regards,

Elie

They have the facilities to do all your documentation.
They do a great delivery and prep for Corvettes (I did it in 2005 and it was awesome)
They are building a huge sports complex across the street with a road course, drag strip, and autocross area. What a great place for an annual Camaro Bash!

So everything is there. Just have to move the assembly to Kentucky. They have the room now that they're not making the Caddy!

How thats what I'm thinkin.

For a Corvette I might consider the factory delivery because it is only 2 hours down the road, but I'm not interested in paying more money so I can then pay to fly to Canada and drive the car back. The Corvette factory is within 600 miles of 47% of the US population (not a made up statistic, it is fact) so it works for a lot of people. I don't think this option would translate very well to the Camaro just due to the location of the factory.

I want to say that I'll think about it. But the truth is, I would probably end up heading north. If I'm still living in the US at the time.

Got passport – check, got plane ticket – check (probably a TSA body cavity check by then too), and got Z-28 – check (from bank)!! My philosophy is go big or go home! Although, in this case the Z-28 has a “bigger” engine, and I will be heading home. WOOHOO So, I guess I’m in.

a video of history of z-28 and maybe a look at the current one being built. something small but that you will cherish. oh a pic with all the people who work at the plant with the z-28 obviously not yours but they can photoshop it too make it your color.

.. Afterwards, a simple photo shoot with your Z28 and the Sunoco Camaro, pics with the team, autographs pics and a chance to open track after the race with Matt Bell or Jeff Bucknum coaching in shotgun... That would be fun...

I would say put me down for $1500 for the Pit Pass, Pics of my Z28 w/the Sunoco with John Handcocks from crew and drivers on the pics and an open track with Matt/Jeff shotgun crew chief...



Hell those guys do that now...we hung with them at Limerock...the WHOLE team treated us like we were the owners... They even signed Motorheads Dash trim...if that wasnt enough they asked for our autographs and put that trim in the #9 car and raced with it.
PRETTY COOL GUYS!!!!!

On topic I would have to say this: I would like to watch my car be built, see it get to the end and then drive it out the doors to the transport area.
Realistic and do-able...

Haveing every worker sign every car would be to time consuming, free trips...too costly. Build your own car would be to intrusive to the workers..its $40,000 if I build it and $60,000 if you help....and the insurance liability..OMG!!!

A little fantasy I would like to see : A Z/28 Lemans Blue Convertible with
Black/Tan or Black/ Wht Leather Interior OR a C.O.P.O LS-9 supercharged.....basic vinyl interior (no rear seat)....radio and A/C delete, 6 speed stick and 3.91 rear gears.

I luv the idea of assisting with the assembly of your purchased car......Honestly,GM/Chevy is well aware that the 2012 Camaro Z/28 will most likely be a hit and they will surely take advantage of it..I am still betting the 2012 Z/28 will have a starting MSRP in the BallPark of $45,000, I am still cringing with the thought of what a '12 Z/28 is going to cost with "options" and in the hands of dealers with Mark-up..

I would love...LOVE to have all of that in the package. I guess I would expect to pay about as much as the option for the Corvettes. I think being allowed, with supervision, to assemble your own engine would be an incredible experience!

Excellent point....... Totally AGREE. However, this isn't the right thread for that subject.

I'd pay to have museum papers and assembly line photos etc... maybe i'd raise my original $195 up to $499 for the papers in perfect condition.
499 for papers in archive form.
+200 for walk through plant during assembly
+500 to help make engine

Total $1200.

I think that being able to go down to the Factory (Oshawa), be handed all the build sheets etc. (maybe even get 'buddied up' with a key plant worker), tour the plant, and track test your own car would be well worth an extra $1500. Would also love to be involved in something assembly related but it would have to be a finishing touch since I would want to drive it away that same day. I assume taking delivery from the plant is also on the table? An experience like this would be a compelling reason to purchase a new one vs. waiting a couple of years and allowing market depreciation to have it's way with the car before jumping in. GM should definately do this!

I am sure that the dealership that you are buying it from would be glad to do that for you free of charge.
