Dodge did the same thing with the Super Bee as a cheaper version of the Coronet R/T.

I'm certain you'd see alot of people step up and buy a basic, bare bones Camaro if it was available. Especially in this economic state. Just my opinion though

All those that want AC, heater, and radio delete? Please raise your hands...

Planning out packages of desirable options is pretty well thought out. MSRP has a lot to do with sales, and tacking on options most don't want is not conducive to gross sales.

Rollup windows an rubber floors, or any engineering adds to the base cost of a vehicle.

As a for instance, a manual trans is no longer offered on SIlverado 1500 because so few were ordered the engineering to validate and offer them was counter productive cost wise.

Actually, being able to buy something that can run numbers the old muscle could never dream of, while blasting the ac and playing tunes on a nice stereo system, isn't that bad of a trade off.

Count the number of folks that will opt for a 2SS over a 1SS. The content offered is not dictated by the manufacturer. It's dictated by the majority of customers.

Now that that fantasy is over, since I know they will never offer a car that way again in my lifetime, what I realistically want is to be able to order a 1SS without leather, but with the Auxiliary 4 Gauge pod.

Oh, to dream...
Sounds just like my 1974 Camaro....

For me, i could do without traction control, a solid roof (ie: convertible!), and rear park assist. I know how to back up.
I said I could do without HUD and back up assist. That's why I want a camaro from the first round of cars.
