45th Anniversary Camaro Special Edition?

So everyone has been so excited for the z28 (rightfully so) i havent heard much about a 45th Anniversary Special Edition? So has there been any word on this? How does everyone feel about this idea? What will/would it look like if/when it comes out?

1992 25th Anniversary Special Edition



1997 30th Anniversary Special Edition



2002 35th Anniversary Special Edition

I agree. The camaro was introduced in 1967, so even if they skip a few years the 45th anniversary is 2012. 45 years after the Camaro was introduced.

Where's the 2007 40th anniversary? I'm not trying to be an ass, but how can you continue celebrating anniversaries when there was a seven year divorce?

It doesn't matter to me one way or the other. I don't know if there's precedent for this, but has any other car that went out of production for a number of years and came back, then continue with anniversary models like nothing happened?

I'm sure I'll get flamed for this, but it's an honest question.

Debate.

No divorce. The fact is in 2012 it will have been 45 years.

So you are saying if I got a divorce - then after a couple of years I remarried my X, I would still have to count those years when I spoke of our 'Nth' anniversary?

Not disagreeing, just want to figure out which present to get.

Agree with all above 2012 is 45th.

OK, then I guess the 2010 Challenger should be a 40th anniversary model?

I don't know when it was first introduced, but if your math is correct then yes it would be the 40th anniversary since the car was introduced.

I hope they do a 45th and a 50th. I was born the same year as the Camaro, so I'm into the anniversary editions. I bought myself a 35th on my 35th. Hope to do the same on my 45th and 50th. God willing and the creek don't rise.

The Camaro has been in existence for 43 years now. In 2012 it will mark the 45th year since the Camaro was introduced. Thus 45th anniversary!! Not trying to be a ass either, just simple arithmetic.

You don't count the years it was produced, you count the years from its first model date. From the somewhat all knowing wikipedia:

Quote:
is a day that commemorates and/or celebrates a past event that occurred on the same day of the year as the initial event.

45 isn't really a landmark number to me. Does anyone celebrate their 45th birthday more so than their 44th?

When it comes to selling cars, they'll do ANYTHING to make themselves stand out.

They didn't have a 5th, 10th, 15th or 20th anniversary even when they were building them. A 45th is absurd, IMO, but I'll bet dimes to donuts they will do it.

BTW they did have a 20th anniv. It was the 1987. There were some with a special 20th anniv. pouch on the dash over the glove box that said 20th anniv.

I believe Z28 will commemorate the 45th quite nicely
