I've also always heard it as RS/SS (and believe I even recall seeing some badged that way?). I know the SS option "trumps" the RS option, but I see it as the "RS" part is an adjective that describes the "type" of SS (Noun) that it is. Much like saying "I have a Yellow (adjective) SS (Noun)".

What type of SS do I own? An RS/SS! That said, I feel like the 5th gens are generally referred to the other way around, but I don't care. I'm going with RS/SS, just like in the late 60's!

And BTW, at least one company is making RS/SS badges for the 5th Gen.
http://www.thirdshiftstudios.com/5th...s-emblems.html

These are as I believe I recall seeing them in the the late 60's early 70's... much like Z/28, with the RS part higher and the SS part lower (offset).

I bought a 5th generation Camaro. In 2009 I had the choice of models, from an LS thru an SS. I decided on an SS, I then had to decided what options I wanted on the car, one being an RS appearance package.

Some where on this site you'll find a complete history on the Camaro and the various monikers that have come and gone over each generation of the Camaro and the reasons.

At the end of the day, you can call it what ever you want, but history will record that the 5th generation was an SS/RS.

Either way this debate has gone on for ever

In the first gen' almost everything came with a V8. A guy here has a 1969 RS (Non SS) vert w/ 350. It looks and sounds awesome.

1 and 2 gens were referred to as: RS/SS. Latest gen seems to be referred to as SS/RS. Option on model designation vs model with option designation.

and the debate rages on ...
