2010 Camaro documentation / brochures

Hello everyone! Long time lurker, first time poster. I have to say a big to everyone on this forum. I've learned an enormous about of information on here and as such have been able to make some well informed decisions about my order (IOM 2SS/RS w/ black rally stripes on order BTW ). I have to say that I'm much further ahead then I would be if I have just relied upon my dealer (nothing against him, great guy, just not well informed, no initiative etc etc... ok enough about that - that's a rant, errr.... topic that is well documented here).

So here's the reason I decided to finally get off my @$$ and post.

I plan to keep the 'Maro a long time. I will drive it, but it's going to be a summer driver only and extremely well cared for. Ultimately I'd love to pass it along to my son. The upcoming Barrett-Jackson auction has got me thinking about how to ensure it's a valuable collectable down the road. Proper maintenance is the obviously number one. But good documentation is a close second. The more documentation the better. So I am trying to assemble a comprehensive archive of as much "official" documentation I can get my hands on. Given the modern electronic age, there is plenty of unofficial stuff out there, add-ons and related stuff (good example = the Dale Jr. SEMA car press release kit). So obviously one could go crazy with this. But offical brochures etc. are what I'm after.

Below is a list of documents that I have/need (I'm sure I'm missing plenty) and a few questions. Not sure if this has already been discussed in any depth - if so my appologies. I'd love to get everyone's input so I can build my archive. Particularly if you have or know where i can get any of those listed.

Thanks in advance

Hard Copy Brochures:
- 2007 NAIAS launch press kit (Need)
- Introductory brochure (6 page fold-out style - http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...light=brochure) (Need)
- Color chips (waiting for dealer)
- Others?

- Specifications V.2 ??? 2008 (Need)

- Specifications V.4 October 2008 (Have)
- Order Guide (no title on this one, 2 pages showing std/avail options & colours) (Have)
- Salesperson Reference Guide (Have - but would love to get a color version, can only find the b&w scan)
- Initial Ordering Workbook (Have)
- Others?

Car specific documents
- GM AutoBook full spec order sheet
- Order WORKBENCH print out
- Window sticker
- Final dealer invoice, payment documents etc.
- Factory build sheet (does anyone know if you can even get these anymore - used to be able to)
- Photos on day of delivery of course
- Manual and all other documentation that comes with car (onStar, XM, blah blah)
- First & second thankyou letters from GM (NEED! if they every arrive...)
- Others?

Stuff still to come

- Others?

Welcome! I have saved just about every piece of information about this car since the concept was shown. Definitely a great idea.

Don't get me started about other Camaro items. I'm still waiting for someone to produce a decent 1:18th scale model to add to my collection (I have about 150 currently).

I'm going to add these letters to my list. Anyone in Canada get either of these letters yet?

Go to any auto show with the Camaro there. That's where I got mine, just asked the GM rep watching over the Camaro.

Corvette factory tours allow buyers to get their buildsheet on the spot.

Then Corvette Museum will recreate them based on computer info.

I bet someone will recreate Camaro ones too, in case we can't get the originals.

Perhaps they will be under the backseat cushion like the old days, or some were on top of the fuel tanks.

Maybe our friends in Oshawa will let us know.

The PDF in the above link is the black & white scan I spoke of. The color version in the thread is just a series of JPEGs. Even the link buried in post #120 is jpegs. Last resort to save those, but I'd like a PDF if possible.

Did you get my email? I sent you a color pdf of the SRG last night along with about 10MB of other stuff.

Let me know and I can resend in smaller emails.

Welcome to the forum CanadianCamaro!

I share your philosophy about the more documentation the better. Besides adding to the value of the car at auctions, etc., as you correctly point out, it's just plain fun to do.

I did the same thing as you when it came to my '05 Mustang, and I will do the same for the '10 Camaro if I decide to pull the trigger on one (which is likely).

Before I ordered the Mustang in Dec 2004, I had sent to Ford for more information, and they sent me a personalized 8-page mini-brochure. The salesman at the dealership gave me a 14-page glossy Ford reprint of articles from Car And Driver, Motor Trend, and USA Today. Of course I also saved the window sticker, got several copies of the sales brochure at the showroom, downloaded the PDF Order Guide and Info sheets from the MustangSource.com website, and had a printout of the Road & Track data sheet laminated! Also in my folder are copies of numerous magazine road tests and comparisons.

After the purchase, I have kept a record of all the maintenance on an Excel spreadsheet (PM me for the template if you want).

There's no substitute for the car itself, naturally, but having all that reading material is sure fun when you're not driving.
