I've never seen another 1LE on the road. Have seen maybe 3 ZL1s. Though I've seen one white one at a dealer that they tried to sell me...Plenty of ZL1s at the dealers here both auto and sticks.

Same here. My local dealer couldn't spell Camaro correctly, and another salesman had no idea what the 1LE was. That's about the time when I called Becky.

I live in Nebraska and in a city with a popultaion of around 32,000 people. With that being said there are three ZL1's and four 1LE's in town.

Must be a Nebraska thing.

Other than car shows & the dealership I bought from, I've only seen 1 ZL1 and 1 1LE in the wild. I think we were about even at RICOA last weekend. For the current C5, it seems like they're about even - BUT - considering the ZL1 has been out longer, I'll bet 1LEs will be more common in the updated model... mostly because of cost.

That's the thing you don't get. If I could i would have bought the ZL1. Not that did not want to, just my bank account was not in agreement with me. I had to settle.

Quite close to the Champs de Mars (Eiffel Tower).

Yup, getting only congrats from people overhere! Even though 99% of people go:
- "what kinda car is that?"
- Chevrolet Camaro 1LE
- "camawhat?"
- Camaro
- "whatever, congrats it's beautiful"!


i love my car!

But no ZL1 around except in some specific import dealers way to expensive!

It also seems like dealers have more ZL1s sitting at the lot than the 1LE cars.
Depends on the area. I have only seen 1 ZL1 while I was driving in mine locally. I have seen a few 1LEs however.

i'll try...it was raining and the parking lot was pretty busy, so i didn't want to jump out and snap pics. think stock yellow 1le with stock exhaust, with body color gfx instead of a splitter and npp-diffuser
i'm sure it was the one from dealer stock that newb mentioned a while back. i know there was another member here in hawaii that ordered a 1le (can't remember his name)...he initially ordered yellow and switched to AGM, tho

No kidding ... Didn't realize the 1LE was shipping to EMEA. I bet it turns some heads.

Well I think it's safe to say the 1LE is more rare than the ZL1. This weekend is Camaro Superfest here in Michigan...out of over 300 Camaros mine was the ONLY 5th Gen 1LE there (except for one the dealer showed off and a 2014 they were showing). There were at least 15 Zl1s however so I guess it truly is a rare car.

That and they put me in the specialty class because its a 1LE???? I was like whatever man this is my first car show so I'm just here because its the first time I have something worth showing off ha ha

Also here's a pic with my Car and many others at the COPO build center.

I havent seen any 1le's in my area except for at the dealer...I had my eye on one and a couple in NH bought it. There is one more out there without nav, and my dealer is working on getting me one with nav. Have been told no more 2013's can be ordered due to the 2014's coming out.

I was at a cruise night this last Friday night with a friend of mine that has a 67 SS Camaro . We park by each other so when people came by they could see the first Camaro made then the newest Camaro made back to back . 90% of people had no idea what the my car was other than it was a Camaro and the last 10% though it was a new Z/28 . I think it a lot like the first 1LE that were made if your not a hard core Camaro guy or Car enthusiasts people have A. no idea that GM making 1LE Camaro and B. what the car is for ( as to compete with the Boss 302 Mustang) as a DD driver that also a track day fun car.

I think with people see the 1LEs showing up at the track and the new 2014s coming out and people reading this part of the forum you see more 2014 1LE this next coming year model.

Specifically a Vert Hotwheels SS manual. Going to be a low total on that one.
