Looks to me like the Bow tie was placed over the blue and could be removed if so desired.

Its Official ......the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro's with blue nose to tail stripes looks like 2012 Chevrolet Camaro's with blue nose to tail stripes. Thats Great enough for me...being I'm a fan of nose to tail striped Camaro's.

Thus the large gold Bowie to help prevent folks calling them Mustangs.


Actually the white with blue stripes scheme comes from the days when cars raced in country colours. Germany was silver, England was green, Italy was red, France white and so on. America was white with blue stripes. Ford became most associated with those colours because they raced with then the most.

Maybe this is why the Zl1 orders have been sitting. GM has been getting all of these cars ready to go. Thanks GM for telling us and putting us on the back burner!!!

Awesome pics...

Now take the blue color from the stripes and paint the whole car with it... that's the blue I would love to see on a zl1 vert and would probably trade in for.

Obviously paying homage to the '67 pace car, they are begging for a matching blue interior like the '67's had.

Yes, they are sold through dealerships. Talk to Becky.

The 500 Festival Committee Members get to drive them through May to help promote the race. Then they are typically sold to dealers as "used" cars to resell. Some will have very few miles on them and others will have several thousand miles.

These "should" not go for as much as they are not Pace Car Replicas and not a Z4Z Pace Car Package. Window stickers I saw did not have any markups from factory for the graphics. Aside from the decals these are just regular white SS's. Nothing special was done to the interior or anywhere else. Does not mean the dealer won't mark them up or command a premium though..

I have a feeling you are going to like the pace car (it is just a feeling) A ZL1 'vert makes sense to draw attention to the ZL1 that is out and the 'vert version coming soon. I would think this means no Pace Car edition this year so they can paint the pace car a color that doesn't currently exist in the Camaro world. I hope they don't just do white with blue stripes (or blue with white stripes) for the actual pace car, I'd like it to be a little more exciting!
