GM is very protective regarding licensed product. If they don't like it they will make it known. Then again they may have approved it. All of us that are looking for the 5th Gen Z/28 should buy a sweatshirt. I just ordered one for my wife. It can't hurt to let them see our interest in the Z/28, especially when the hoodie is kind of cool.

Its a shirt that says "Z28" on it, with Camaro tossed in a couple times. Whats odd about that? Its not as if the shirt itself has "All new 2012 Z28" plastered across the chest or anything.

I would think that GM would jump all over the wording of the ad..... It's probably nothing!

Smells like an attempt to go viral into our forum and boost clothing sales at this non-GM web site. Did it work? Did anyone here order anything off that site?

Well, Tag would know better than me (since he sells GM licence apparel) but I'm pretty sure when you go to GM with a shirt, they don't ask for the writeup in your advertising for your product. Plus, in all likelihood this CamaroCollection.com is just some 3rd party who sells designs that others came up with. In that case, it would be the designer/producer that has to get approval for the shirt, not the retailer who no longer needs to get approval for anything. I'm 99% sure thats how it works with Camaro5store and the Ralph White items that Tag sells.

As for GM getting uppity over the wording of the add ... its false information in the internet, I'm sure they'll treat it as such.

Aftermarket parts are probably a big reason the haven't made a z28. Most guys who would buy one already have the ss model and probably have it up to where the z28 would be. We haven't even gotten the zl1 yet so...........

All it does is confirm that a Camaro in Z28 trim exists.
Says NOTHING about a 2012.

Not that I know of. There was some sort of agreement between SLP and GM regarding the SS moniker for the 4th gens, and SLP owns the ZL name, but Z28? I've never heard of SLP owning it other than a couple people saying that they think SLP might own it.

Think of it this way: a mere 10 years ago, GM was still building Z28s. Less than 5 years after they stopped, they were working on a new Camaro. That would have been the only window for SLP to snatch up the name, which is pretty narrow. Meanwhile, its my understanding that they never even fully acquired the ZL1 name, they just trademarked the "ZL" and threw a number in afterward (550, 600, 1 ... etc). GM had been letting that one sit around for 40 years, so I don't think they'd let Z28 go after 4.

Isn't this like the second thread where you state or ask about SLP owning the Z/28 trademark? Get over it, GM owns it, end of story!!

It's easy to get slightly incorrect info when it comes from someone else, been there, done that too many times.

its nothing new, they have sold Z/28 items for years just like www.chevymall.com does. the only thing their site was stating was that they have a new line of clothing for 2012.
