Hell, who could afford the exrtra $130-odd bucks, after shellin' out the $7,300 for the Base car?!

Shows the TRUE intent of the original...1/4-mile at a time, with a gentle turn onto the return road...

CamaroCollection.com is not a General Motors website. They sell GM licensed clothing and accessories, but so does Camaro5Store.com

Being that the emblems/logos are trademarks, does GM have to approve of the designs?

Yes, but I'm pretty sure they don't have to approve of the product description

I'd like to see an OddBall 2012 Z28 with a Twin Turbo V-6 or a Turbo 4 banger with a 2-speed PG and 4.56 rear...

Are they still around? If so the value must be off the charts.

Major FAIL!! Obviously you haven't read many of the Z/28 threads or you would know that 99 and 9/10s % of Z/28 people do not want a V-6 (much less a 4 banger).

GM is very protective regarding licensed product. If they don't like it they will make it known. Then again they may have approved it. All of us that are looking for the 5th Gen Z/28 should buy a sweatshirt. I just ordered one for my wife. It can't hurt to let them see our interest in the Z/28, especially when the hoodie is kind of cool.

Its a shirt that says "Z28" on it, with Camaro tossed in a couple times. Whats odd about that? Its not as if the shirt itself has "All new 2012 Z28" plastered across the chest or anything.

I would think that GM would jump all over the wording of the ad..... It's probably nothing!

Smells like an attempt to go viral into our forum and boost clothing sales at this non-GM web site. Did it work? Did anyone here order anything off that site?

Well, Tag would know better than me (since he sells GM licence apparel) but I'm pretty sure when you go to GM with a shirt, they don't ask for the writeup in your advertising for your product. Plus, in all likelihood this CamaroCollection.com is just some 3rd party who sells designs that others came up with. In that case, it would be the designer/producer that has to get approval for the shirt, not the retailer who no longer needs to get approval for anything. I'm 99% sure thats how it works with Camaro5store and the Ralph White items that Tag sells.

As for GM getting uppity over the wording of the add ... its false information in the internet, I'm sure they'll treat it as such.

Aftermarket parts are probably a big reason the haven't made a z28. Most guys who would buy one already have the ss model and probably have it up to where the z28 would be. We haven't even gotten the zl1 yet so...........
