I had an 85 Firebird, 85 Z-28 and a 97 Z-28 with t-tops and LOVED them, that being said, I don't think the 5th Gen would look right with traditional t-tops. What about a removable glass panel like the Vettes had?? or do they still have them??

There is a thread some where in here (I think it was a front page story) of a company that did a T-Top it does not look as bad as I thought it would. But I agree it does not flow as well with the 5th gen as it did with previous years.

As far as a targa top like the Vettes, I would think it would look even worse, but a Targa top would weigh quite a bit more on the Camaro than it does on the vette.

Yep, I wouldn't count on them taking out the rear sensors. My wife's Equinox has the back up camera in the mirror, but it still has the sensors as well. She loves seeing how much she can make the sensors beep by backing up into things

I think if you order a car you should be able to pay for whatever color options etc you want hence the reason for ordering a car.

I guess he means any color, not just the current colors available.

Well I could see that for an upcharge as it cost more to do one off's on color in an assembly line type process. They would have to buy just enough paint for that one car, and set it up in a once car at a time booth and paint it etc. much more costly than to paint the standard colors all together in the booth at the same time.

Wonder if the LS7 style wheel will be one of the 20" wheel options?

I drove a Cadillac CTS with the backup camera in the rearview mirror and the video quality was pretty washed out and contrasty compared to those that are on a nav screen.

LOL I was thinking this the other night myself. That would be awesome. Considering they won't let anyone else make them, they just might have plans to do that, if so I hope they are available in chrome, and also in a 22". I love those wheels.

Ah well. I'm sure this is the first of a few new things to be announced I'll wish I had.
And just imagine YOUR Cyber Gray car 2-toned with the new Metallic Black on top. Can you say HOT? Seperate the two colors with a thin, hand-painted silver accent stripe to make it POP.

By this fall, I hope to have a taller spoiler, different hood, GFX package on my Imperial Blue Camaro. Top it all off with a 2-tone paint job with the black granite metallic on top, seperated by a thin light blue pinstripe--I can't wait!

What about two-toning a Black car with the new metallic black on top? Talk about subtle...

We have one here in Houston like that minus the thin silver stripe. It looks awesome. Most people don't even notice it...

Hey guys...there's a big Chevrolet meeting in Vegas that my GM is flying out for tomorrow. According to one of the GM guys I know we should be getting real confirmed information about the Z/28, updates to the 2012's, new Corvette C7 info and more. I will post here what I find out (unless someone beats me to it).

Nice! Can't wait.

Also, glad to see no more Synergy Green. I want to keep the rarity down on this color.

Lets hope so. They might make them limited for the Z28 or the 45th Anniversary Edition model but we'll see. I still would like to see a ballpark figure on the Z. I'm think a Z28 in this new black metallic would be almost perfect, then add the LS7 wheels and I think I know what I'd be getting...

Really people?! Grow up and stop blaming GM for the lack of blues. They don't hate blues. They didn't discontinue ABM because of any conspiracy theory to eliminate blue from the rainbow. Blue cars don't sell, across all auto brands and in all class of vehicles, blue are consistently low volume sellers.

Because regardless of what years the car was sold it's still the 45th anniversary of it's debut.
The Corvette wasn't in continuous production but still released a 50th anniversary model in '03.

Technically the Corvette has been in continuous production. There were no '83s sold to the public, but there were '83s built.

Back to the Camaro, I'm looking forward to the 45th and 50th. I was born the same year as the Camaro in '67. I bought myself a 35th on my 35th. I'm hoping my next anniversary edition birthday present comes with a big ass supercharged engine, and cake and ice cream.

I hope they do offer the LS7 wheels, that would be awesome!! I saw two GTO's today and the heels on the GTO look like a cross between the LS7 wheel and the Dale Jr concept wheels. I like both those wheels but the fusion into the GTO wheel did not work HAA.
