Are the stripes decals or painted? You would think as much as they cost it would be painted !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I found a couple more picts of the car OUTSIDE........on Autoblog. Figured I would add them to this thread.

I hear you guys on numbering the cars, and I agree totally

Hopefully some of you caught the Car at the Chicago Autoshow, it looked pretty cool in the opening video........BUT more then likely you were distracted by the ZL-1. LOL

I'll be at Camaro Fest and the Indy 500 again this year.......Hope to see some of you there!

The 69 had no exterior changes from production, it lived off the color.......this simple approach to Pace cars has been lost on many, but I believe it's a big part of why the 69 is one of the most sought after Pace cars of all time.
I mirrored the areas of change as much as I could with the new 2011. The heritage grille picks up on the look of the RS package of 69 with it's center opening surrounded by body color. Also the stripe IS the statement, with an added twist of it affecting the interior. Outside of the grille & floor mats, every other change is ONLY available on a limited number basis specifically on the Indy. The Headrest, Sill plates, Full length stripes, Striped IP/Door inserts & specific gill decals can only be purchased via the Indy. We had plans for a specific modern interpretation of houndstooth, but things don't always go as planned.
So to answer your question about MORE special, it depends on what sort of stuff is special to you. I think they both Rock considering the parameters of the projects.
If the color is so important, then how could you get it wrong? I'm being compeltely honest here. Inferno Orange is not Hugger; Hugger is the iconic color. You say it's a one-off, that it lives off the stripes, that the heritage mattered, yet you put the wrong orange and, to top it off, Mustang "full length" stripes. I just don't understand you guys

We managed to build a true-to-heritage 69 Z10 replica, with appropriate Hugger Orange stripes, and with a much smaller budget...why can't you?

I agree. If they really wanted to hit it right on the 500 do Orange houndstooth interior. Remember this is 100yr ann. for indy and Chevy. What better way to acknowledge the race, the brand and the car, by really making the new and the old look alike. I think Chevy is missing the mark on alot of things with this car, that could really boost sales. There are alot of people out there that would really like to see more connection to the 69's. Also why not offer a hot cam option and headers. Take a good look at the Mustang 302. There are things the blue oval is doing with their cars and coming with that will leave the bowtie scratching their heads, and I don't by the excuse that the gov is holding things back, because Ford is doing it why can't Chevy. For some time now the Mustang has been head in performace over the CAMARO. I love the Camaro and always have. I have 1 69RS coupe, a 69 conv. and a 2010RS. And getting ready to order a conv. Depending on if a Z is in the future. The new ZL1 is nice but not getting the suede interior, the steering wheel and a few other things. I thing this car will be over priced, like alot of things. You want to sell cars provide some real options and make it affordable.

Atom, any idea if there will be any additional Indy badges on this car like the 2010 had on the front fenders?

I wish GM was able to bring in demand products to market as fast as Ford. Example: the Shelby GT was the fast answer to the Hertz Mustangs that everyone wanted to buy, but couldn't... Ford used additional resources (Shelby America Inc.) to bring these cars to the dealerships -although ridiculous dealer mark-ups slowed the sales of these so-what limited cars.

Not sure if SLP has this capability for post assembly line completion, but their ZL cars are a start for possible factory options... like Hugger Orange painted stripes, Houndstooth interior, etc.

They were giving them away at the Auto Show, so maybe you could contact a local dealer or attend a local Auto Show. I have seen them available on Ebay but I would try to get one for free before you pay somebody for one. Although somebody on Ebay set the "buy it now" price at $38.00!!!! most are less than $5.00.

Just a FYI for you pace car fans if you aren't aware of it. The HOF Musuem will be having a pace car reunion again this year the weekend of qualifications May 21-22. They last had one in '06.

So the pace car comes with an engine cover painted.. what color? Normal Camaro painted engine covers are painted to match the body color, but I am not sure white would be appropriate. I am assuming it will be orange..but you know what they say when you assume
