Paul, don't let them kid you! While the RS package will add the SS spoiler and the 20" wheels to the LT (which the SS comes with standard), the RS package on both the LT and the SS adds the HID head lights with the halo around them, painted roof moldings (unless you get the vert), and the darker tail lights. You will notice the difference in the badging. The LT with the RS package gets a red RS badge on the front and back - the SS with RS gets a red SS badge (non RS has a white SS badge).

Make sense?

If you're gonna do it, do it all the way - so IOH/IO it will probably be. Miss the '71 Chevelle vert (307) and '73 & '74 (454) Caprices I had 30+ years ago. Tuned up the neighbor's car once, a '69 Camaro with a 250 six and 2-speed powerglide.

Would like to join you guys in rallys if you'll have me, you guys sound like a lot of fun. I'm not a racer - only show, with a little go. So that "go" I get had better be good - therefore the SS!

Has anyone out there dealt with MacMulkin Chevrolet? So far so good here, though we haven't strated the negotiation or order processes yet. (newbie here, so I hope it's ok to ask that)

Welcome! I love the convert myself might have to upgrade next year.

Check out Quirk in Manchester they gave me a great deal and are really good to deal with.

RS package is worth getting just for the HID's alone



RS package like molloni stated has all those extra options that you wouldnt get by just getting the SS...The RS package is a must in my opionion

Thumbs up Thanks for the info

Thanks all for your helpful responses!

@Molloni - Thanks, you really made it simple for me to understand! Yes, that makes sense. I haven't seen an SS with the white badge yet, only red ones, so they must all have the RS option. I'm going to look for pics tonight in the forums. Right now all I've seen are SS's with the RS, and "plain Jane" LTs at Hertz. I do like the idea of white SS badges with IOM. Your info is really helpful and what I needed from the dealer, which as you can see I didn't get. But maybe I didn't ask the right questions.

@rjcamaro, Nice RJT! I've been going back and forth myself on hardtop vs. vert. Both beautiful cars, makes it so hard to decide! Will check out Quirk on the drive back from Canada to Nashua, I'm in Quebec but not near Oshawa, it would be neat to see where the plant is!

@Tim, yes HIDs are a must if I can find the extra $1,300 for the RS! Increased cost for vert vs. hardtop may mean no RS - will see how finances go.

Have a great week!

You live in Nashua? Me too. Talk to Mark Chartrand at Quirk he has been there forever and really nice to deal with.

Need wheel

Hi I'm reaching out to my fellow Camaro owners I damaged one of my 8 inch stock painted rims I'm thinking best place to look for one is with other Camaro oweners. looking to put a Hurst shifter in and did not want to put a lot of $ into wheels or should I say dealer prices. Has anyone replaced there rims or wheels and are willing to sell the stock wheel or wheels they removed I would like one or two. I live in cental Mass would like to hear from you.

Paul, this is an excellent question! Do any of our RI members know someone in construction who owes them a favor?

Welcome to scopemaker. Depends on how extensive the damage is to the wheel. I still have yet to get my curb damage fixed . But Filthy Phil suggested something that can be done by hand, but I forgot the product he suggested (what ever happened to that guy?). There are some local shops that will do a repair job for a good price. Unfortunately, I can't find my list...
