Low Vin Number

lots of references on the board about having that all desireable 'low' vin number. Just wanted to see what the opinions were on what is considered low??
Would all the R6P Camaro's be 'low VIN'??
would 112000 be low??

Thoughts?

I wish I had a low VIN number. My car still hasn't been built yet and I'm an R6P order. My hopes of getting a low VIN number have long passed.

To me a low vin number would be under 100, or one of the pre 100001 series cars.

Remember the first 3 were sold for charity/number 3. Then they made the ctf cars. I forget how many.

With that being said they probably made roughly 50-75 before starting customer cars. So many vin 075-1075 maybe? thats just my opinion.
Obviously the first few cars; 2010; 666; 5 - those would all be worth more cause of their number but these are all guesses.

At least I hope so since i'm number #1002

Just my opinion.

i believe the R6P code is all that really matters. i'm sure 20 - 30 years down the road, an R6P VIN under 1000 will pull more than say my R6P at 7553..............but the R6P code will rule.

You're a little off there. The "first" car (100001) was auctioned off for charity (bought by Rick Hendrick) and the number 3 car (100003) was also for charity. The CTF cars were produced way before the "first" car and they start with 00000x (000003 is the first I think we know of being out there and it is/was being driven by a GM employee and member on here - Number 3) and go up to somewhere around 000500. There are cars that got sold that are in the 000500+ range (I believe there were some in TX and Philly in the 600-700 VIN range). Those are really some of the first cars that you could buy.

As far as the actual standard production vehicles, I do think there will be a slight difference in value between RP6 and non-RP6 cars. However, that may take some time. I think anything sub VIN 100100 or in the 000500-000999 range will also be more valuable in the long-run. But truly, only time will tell.

Same boat here. My R6P order Vin will probably be 20000-25000 and thats if I get lucky.

I would say first 1000 or so.

But at the end of the day it takes 25 years for it to become Classic and 75 to be Antique. And then it needs to be bone stock and mint to appreciate up a lot.

I don't necessarily disagree. Only time will tell and a big factor will be how many of "x" number are still around. We may find that anything sub 2500 is considered rare by then.
