That's alot of money for a set of stickers and an exhaust! Show me the power! Special edition? Why is everyone copying Yenko's decals??? Be creative and make your own decals! Just my thoughts, Jeff

SWEET RIDE!!!...

My Dad's favorite race of all races was always the Indy 500...he and my Mom went to a race when they were first married...

Before the days when they started televising the race, and the race was held on the ACTUAL Memorial Day - May 30th, my Dad, who was a 60yr VOLUNTEER fireman, would march in the Memorial Day Parade and then come home, still in his FD uniform, and listen to the race all day on a tiny transistor radio...this was a "few" yrs ago.......good memories...

For some reason, I really hate the look of that side decal. Hockey stripes are fine but that Yenko styled sticker needs to stay in the 60's where it belongs. Just my opinion though.

I do like the hood stickers...
I noticed that too ROLNSLO bout it not being an RS & side view LT.
I totally agree with you about the yenko stripes and hood stickers.
I already put dark orange (not quite a perfect match for inferno orange, but close) "SS 6.2L" cowl stickers on my silver rally stripes over IOM 2SS/RS! I think it looks awesome and i got some great compliments too!!!

+4 - I have to agree with the majority of the posters here.

It does seem a little lame that there isn't more to it than appearance trinkets and nice exhaust. It will be a future collectible just because of the very limited production and it's a 2010. They could make the spirit of the upgrades 60's like, but hop up more modern features. Of course the HP upgrades are always memorable, but so is a factory special edition hood. Let's see a unique scoop or composite material. How about more modern upgrades such as WiFi networking connectivity options, built is multimedia enhancements, how about a built in Hard Drive for media or a PC in the car? I am just dreaming here...how about a factory glass top roof? Or a two tone paint job like the RS second gen cars? Functional side scoops to cool the rear brakes? A new RS style grill would be really nice, especially it the cover the lights back and forth...

Perhaps a little out of the box thinking could gain even more critical acclaim for GM and the 2010 Camaro.

~SIGH~ I just love Camaros!

Stupid. I have a better idea. How about a '69 Indy Pace Car style for the 2SS model with full-length painted orange stripes, orange leather interior, Hurst shifter, and an uprated suspension. I know it's not totally faithful because the original was a convertible, but it's better than this crap.

+1


Also, 1 positive is that the next special editions will learn what not to do from this one.
Please don't tell me this pdf came from GM Corporate. What the heck did they use to create the graphics? Windows Version 3.1 Paint?! Dude...

Well even though it will be a "hot lap" with a professional driver (above the normal 35 MPH for these types of events where anyone can drive), they most likely will not exceed 100-120 MPH in the straights, slower in the corners. Won't be going near 200 MPH racing type speeds. You do realize that many concrete highways have similar "diamond cut" grooving right?

On Camaro builders sites a 2SS/RS with black hockey stripes and car cover, with out adding the cost for the exhaust etc., is $39,479.70 so pricing seems right in line to me.
The Daytona and Indy pace cars had some unique paint/graphics and sure seemed to have a lot of haters of those. This new Camaro pays tribute to the heritage of the car, those stripes are meant to pay tribute to the special editions of the past.
Also limited number special edition drivetrains are a pretty much a thing of the past from a major manufacturers since it would require millions in additional EPA/CAFE/Government certification investments.

Then you will have people complaining about "Why do they keep using those same rally stripes out of the '60s and done again in '96 for the 30th ann. models? Been there done that."


Clearly you can’t please all of the people,,,,,

Just a ploy to get more people to buy a Camaro with some goofy decals. The 400 HP on the side is tacky as hell, but to each his own.
