I would say RSSS, as I've always called my 69 convert. It's an SS with an RS description

It's an SS with the RS package.

so SS/RS

You don't go, "Yeah this baby has the RS package. Oh yeah and a V8." You say, "This is the SS with an RS package"

SS trumps a RS. SS is a performance package and RS is an apperance package. That's why SS in red denotes that is a SS with RS package. SS RS is correct>

Typically, in her Majesty's English, a 'descriptor' goes before the item being described. Ie: I have a "yellow Camaro", therefore, I have an RS SS, since the RS describes the additional package on the subject, being the SS.

To say I have an SS RS is like saying, I have a Camaro yellow...

In Gen 1's it was whacky how you could order cars and it could be more confusing then but in the modern Gen 5 it is simple.

The RS with no SS is a V6

The SS with no RS is a V8

So in my thinking it could NEVER be a RS/SS....ONLY SS/RS

Go back in time to 1967. They have always been called RSSS camaros. NOT SSRS.
Do a search on ebay, or look at carsonline.com, or any vintage camaro dealers listings.
They have always been refered to as RSSS.

SS/RS... Something about saying "S" three times in a row would just sound silly imho.

SS/RS

2010 Camaros have a SS in red on the car and dose not have a RS if it did i would say RS/SS but no it has a Red for RS in the SS on the car so it is a SS/RS. My 2 cents.
