I have to think so. Easy to transfer R&D experience that way.

I dunno....that looks like Carbon Flash, and not black, to me. And the selling-point of the ZL1 he bought at Barrett Jackson was that it would be the only 2012 ZL1 produced in Carbon Flash....but I could be wrong. Maybe things changed between then and now....

It sure looks black to me, in fact, the same options, color etc as mine, except I ordered polished rims.

I don't understand how they could paint one Camaro CFM on the line as tough as it is to switch out colors and such. Maybe it's Black and they are going to have it painted elsewhere?

Nice. Reminds me back when the first 2010 camaro came off the line which was also his by the way. He was there and there were post about it. Money does give options.
