Big question?

So then the question that I'm facing is what to do with my 2010 2ss RS Camaro, seeing as all these options and upgrades are coming on the newer models. I was always under the
Inset that the 2010s were going to be a collectible year. But now I'm not sure what's your guys thoughts?

I agree too. I think there may be some collectabilty of the 2010 Model. Personally I'm going to finish paying my 2011 off and then save for a ZL1.

Is the 67 more collectible than the 69? The 70, the 82, the 93?

In my opinion, the 2012's will be the collectible year, that's the 45th Anniversary year.

Provided you own a 45th anniversary edition. I think the earlier your car was manufactured, the more collectability it will have. But if you have any mods that will probably make it less desirable. Honestly the only people who are going to care about what year it was are the hardcore collectors.

No collectability for any 5th gens other than maybe the 2012 ZL1. As was mentioned before, the '82 and '93 Camaros aren't worth much. This isn't the late '60's all over again. I can't see any reason a 2010 would ever be worth more than a 2011 or 2012 or 2013.

This.

My friend has a 97 Trans am that is 1 of 34 (color) and it's not worth anymore than a common 97.

I don't know about the collectible aspect, but I just traded my 10 2SS for a 45th Anniversary edition. It seems like a better car. It handles better, shifts better, more ergonomically friendly. I miss my 10, but love my 12.

Collectible? Not much collectibility for next 30-40 years for any of the regular models, just too many of them where made. ZL1 and certainly copo would probably be worth discussing.

I'm leaning towards this as well, not the collectability part, but paying off my 2010 and saving for a ZL1, or even just waiting for a 6th gen.

Had the 2013 blue been a bright blue, then it would have been a different story.

Only 2010 Camaro owners can say I have the 1st GEN 5 Camaro after 7 years. The GEN 5 Camaro is the best Camaro ever not latter gadgets, there are many 1st's with the 2010 Camaro, for one its the Camaro that started outselling the Mustang.

The key is the Gen5 is based on the 69 camaro the most collectable. So is the rs/ss more collectable then the Z28 or the ss. you decide

2010 SS may be the least collectible, given the unusual V8 to V6 ratio the 2010 model year had. More V8s in 2010 than any other model year.

Ultimately, the 2010 Camaro will be about as collectible as the 2005 Mustang, or Chrysler PT Cruiser will be....not very. The ZL1 may be a different story....in 30 or 40 years. Nothing produced in large numbers will turn into something you'll cash in on. Everything eventually reaches an age where it might start to go up in value, but only rare, low volume stuff (in pristine, rarely driven condition) brings the kind of money one normally thinks of when using the term "collectibility."

The zl1 or copo may be collectible down the road, 20 or 30 yrs from now.

But if you wait that long, it's a terrible financial investment on your return.

Look at a mid year vette, they are a good buck to acquire, but if you invested that money back then, you would have a LOT more $ than the car is worth today.

Plus, in order to make it worth more IMO you will have to keep it stock or be able to change it back to fully stock form. It seems like they ('67 - '69) pull the most at auctions like Barrett Jackson.....Unless its a special edition like a COPO, Yenko, or other high end racing modifier.

IMO its too way early to tell...So far, with the 10's, 11's, 12's having the same basic body style, it really depends on how many more years this gen continues to look the "same", before they are considered "collectible"...First year and last year always seem to do better as far as collectable. First year is already out there...last year??

I think as a general rule the most collectable will be the last year of the body style (before gen 6 comes out) and the top model of what ever that year is.

Drive the wheels off of your 2010. The new features are cool, but IMO not worth turning over an entire 2-3 year old car just to get them.

There are simply too many 5th gen Camaros for them to ever be collectable in the first few model years, period. You may have a chance in 40 years if you stuff one from a dealer lot (read: never driven) into a shipping container full of packing peanuts, but you've got to store and take care of the vehicle for the next 40 years, and there's a chance that the value will only keep up with inflation.

I think ZL1 001 and that Camaro 001 are going to be(already probably) worth tons. Other than that, as a guess, the 45th anni will be worth a lot in 20 to 30 years with no mileage on it.

I hate to tell you, but no. There are plenty of examples of legacy-color Camaros of generations past of just a handful (300-500) units that are worth nothing, with weird or limited option packages.

My '97 Camaro was a great example. Medium Quasar Blue metallic was a color that officially cancelled for the '97 Model year, but it made it on a handful of late '96-build cars. My car came in that color. '97 Was also a changeover year for the updated interior. All '97's had the new interior, but just a few were built with analog odometer with orange-needled gauges. Mine had an analog odo and orange gauge needles. The car also had a really rare option group (manual locks, windows, 5-speed) but it had fog lamps, cruise, and the Monsoon stereo, A/C, and alloy wheels. Plus the '97-only embroidered "30th" interior.

The color and analog odometer caused the dealer on multiple occasions to ask if I had the car repainted or had fiddled with the odometer, in fact, when I went to buy touch up paint, the guy flat out told me my car had been custom painted. I had to walk him out to the car, pull up some of the carpet in the rear where the car wasn't quite painted over the factory body seam sealer, and also show him the paint code on the door jamb.

The car isn't worth a penny more than any other '97 Camaro in good shape, certainly not with thousands of daily-driver miles on it.

I don't see many people chomping at the bit to buy V6 Camaros and Mustangs from the 60's. Can't imagine too many people will be paying top dollar for a 2010 LS in 40 years regardless of color. If these cars even last that long. Cars aren't built like they used to be, those solid steel classics have more staying power.
