My 1300 bucks worth of stickers include the RS package ... pretty fair deal compared to a standard SS

could not sound any better!!!!!!

here we go again with the trolls warping all kinds of logic to annoy people...
listen dude. 45 years have passed since the first camaro was made. so it is the 45th anniversary of that event. regardless of wether or not they made the car every year. that didn't stop the world from going around the sun. no one is celebrating a "45th birthday" for the camaro. hell you don't even need a camaro now to celebrate when it was first made. what part of that is so difficult to understand?

btw you answered it yourself, I just don't think you're understanding what an "annual recurrence of a date" means.

To Debbie Downer on the "paid a ton of $ for stripes"

"Unique staggered-width 20-inch wheels and "45th" fender badges finish off the key package attributes. Not stopping there, Chevy also included the stylish RS Package on this special-edition car which includes one of the new Camaro's top visual features: the HID headlights with LED halo lights. Not only does the 45th Anniversary Edition include the popular RS add-ons, it only costs an extra $75 than the standalone package."

Look I cited my reference: http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/c...view-109254/4/

I guess $75 is worth it to have something very few people have when it comes to resale. I guess I should make up my $75, heck maybe I can even score a cool C note...

This isn't the greatest/clearest phone pic but it's the very first one I took right before driving home from the dealership this past Memorial Day.
It is SO fun to drive this red beauty. God Bless America!

Here's my new baby, not even a week old

Does anyone know where to find red or gray gill stripes that match the colors on the hood/trunk stripe?

Well "DUDE", I'm not a troll, and I never criticized the car or anyone that bought one. I merely questioned Chevy's motive. 9/11 didn't happen every year and Pearl Harbor didn't happen every year so you will have anniversary for those types of one time events with an "annual recurrence of a date" There is no annual recurrence of a date with the camaro. Did chevy celebrate the 40th anniversary of the camaro? No because there wasn't one to celebrate. But you guys all win. I surrender. I didn't mean for everyone to get all butt hurt about a simple question/observation, but I should have expected it. My sincere apologies to anyone offended. Except for the two jagoffs that made it personal, they can still pound sand.
