How about digging deeeeeeeeep into the name bin and bringing out "Panther"? Available in black, white and orangeish tan?

If fbodfather reads this, I want credit for it. A new Camaro like what Chevy gave Kid Rock will do. An all black "Panther" please!

Edit: For the ladies, I almost forgot a Pink Panther.

I really hope this isn't true....IMO it really cheapens all of the special editions when there are 8 million of them like there are with Mustangs.

That would be incredible. I LOVED that concept...much better than suede...

Maybe if GM is reading this.....I vote for a Skybird equivalent....who needs synergy green or a Z28.....lets go for a special edition appearance package in good ole Baby Blue...

I actually knew someone who had one of these.....1978 Firebird Skybird

In reading further...I found this...history does repeat itself!!!

With no reason to mess with success, the 1978 Firebird and Trans Am basically carried over from the '77 except that there were a lot more "special editions" like a gold Trans Am with brown accents and blue "Sky Bird" and red "Red Bird" Firebirds. America snatched up 93,341 Trans Ams and 93,944 other Firebirds for an astounding total of 187,285 - the best sales year ever.

The Sky bird package contained many unique featurs such as:
- Two-tone blue finish, medium blue upper - dark blue lower
- Blue trimmed snowflake wheels
- Medium blue grille liners
- Blue-accendted taillights bezels
- Sky Bird sail panel decals
- Bodyside tape stripes, in graduating tones of blue
- Blue Custom interior
- Blue Formula steering wheels
- Blue Custom seat belts


Considering the topic of this thread....Its just uncanny! Sorry about the skyblue print but i couldnt help my self.

Dark times await for GM if they don't fix the clunky feeling of the Camaro, and I'm an SS owner at that. All I know is 1 year+ at 36k and it still feels clunky to me. Sigh. If I could get Honda S2000 crispness handling wise with the power of the Camaro, I'd be in love.

You must be very new to muscle cars if you expected S2000 handling....

Actually like the GM idea, maybe iconic ones will be produced w/ joint ventures, such as the COPO, and Baldwin Motion....:..sign me up for a COPO, hunter green edition, please..

..just think, history to repeat itself in just one decade?..awesome, that I may be around to see 'em..

I don't like the idea IMO.. what they have now plus tbe ZL1 and Z28 would be perfect.

Limited? Only if they don't sale well. The original synergy edition is proof positive of that. (can you tell I'm still carrying a grudge)....

I agree. It would be nice if the handling was upgraded. If they even "came close" to the S2000 handling, it would be a truly incredlible car.

Am i the only one who thought the IROC line looked ok? I know the power plant sucked...but it wasn't as bad as the Berlinetta...
