Exactly - the window stickers were in the glove boxes and they had no additional amount for the Festival Car graphics package. Unlike the Z4Z option which is on the sticker from the factory adding $7100 or more..

Of course the dealer can put their own sticker in the window adding whatever they want.

GREAT THREAD and AWESOME PICs BTW...
The Nascar Daytona 500 pace car was a stupid Camry. Pathetic move by the sellout Brian France...aka, Idiot.

Absolutely! I have been asking for this type of blue since day one...alas, GM doesn't listen. Apparently, GM "can't sell blue Camaros". (right, Mr. Settlemire?) Maybe they could, if they actually offered it. But, what do I know? I'm just a loyal Chevy guy since I was a little kid. I must be an idiot, those making the decisions at GM are the geniuses, apparently.

Nice colors

Like the blue stripes but the gold chevy logo on the hood has got to go.
Also would have preferred a darker blue for the 500 logo on the side .

Body shops all over the country can paint that color. But on GM's side they need to sell as many camaros as they can to justify it's existence. That means offering it in colors they know they can sell. To be honest, ABM was beautiful! Absolutely gorgeous color on the camaro. Does that mean I would buy one, no. I would still want red or black.

Agreed! I don't even like the gold bowtie on the grill or the rear trunk lid. That's why I had to replace mine with the black bowtie!

Yep, you are right, a bodyshop can paint it. I OWN A BODYSHOP. Why would I want to completely disassemble my brand new Camaro to paint it? That is ridiculous. Also, as far as I am concerned, Synergy Green Metallic was not a run-of -the mill type color. Very limited amount of buyers for that wild color, but GM made it happen. I applauded GM for offering it, even at extra cost. Why not try that option with a LeMans or Mulsanne Blue??? Aqua Blue looked fine as long as the sun shined on it...otherwise it was a drab, dull, blue-green...not that great looking...just an off the shelf color from the HHR and Colorado lines.

Sorry, I am not upset at your comment, I am upset that GM won't build what many potential buyers might want. Just tired of GM being GM...as usual. Many have asked for a blue on this car for quite awhile now, and all we get are lame excuses...its really just BS, and I, as many others, are tired of it. I don't think I should have to buy a new Camaro and then tear it apart to paint it. I already bought a 1/18 scale diecast from the Chevymall and did that just to see what it would look like. (looks great) It didn't take a million dollar focus group full of art and color geeks to figure that one out.

I think Guy Fieri would be a very good person to drive the Pace Car!

When I saw that the festival cars were beautiful Camaros in the style of the '67 pace car, I was completely certain that the pace car would be a Camaro. I mean... How often are the festival cars different from the actual pace car?! (That question begins life as a rhetorical one, but it does make me think)

I would say whenever the Pace Car model is just too expensive to replicate as a Festival Car. Although I would love to see it, if the ZL1 is ever a Pace Car (2013??) - they probably won't have 50+ ZL1 Festival Cars. The ZL1 is pricey enough without the added $7k+ cost of a Pace Car package!

2012 Camaro Pace Car Options

Does anybody know if any of the Festival cars this year (2012) are equipped with 6 speed manual transmissions and if so which numbers are these cars?

I have one and was told that all were automatics, due to the needs of the festival team!
