Pair up with the Corvette Museum and call it the Corvette/Camaro Museum.
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!

well i wish that gave it diffrent options for the rear axel ratio because im sick of thease *****-ass rear ends that cant accellerate.my 01 ss has 3:73's and thats not as bad as my cousins black 10 2ss's 3:45 rearend. i guess what im trying to say is they need to have at least 3 diffrent options for that; 3:45's 3:73's and 4:10's at least

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.

yea after they do a few burn outs along the way.

I would rather see a car hauler pull up in front of the house and unload the car.

I hate to say this but for the most part it is true. Camaro buyers are cheap! A Camaro is not a Corvette and most Camaro people would not spend the money GM would want to have you build your Z/28 motor. I can say this because I own a number of Camaro's and a Corvette. The typical Corvette buyer has the extra money to blow on a Museum delivery or a build your own engine program. The Camaro has allways been the little brother to the Corvette. I would dought that GM has any factory program, but if they did I would do it when I order my Z/28.
