My Ct reg/plate states SS/RS, so I would have to agree SS/RS for 5th Gen.

Thumbs up to the SS/RS.

Although with those beautiful new aftermarket Halos that were introduced, it makes me rethink my purchase of the RS package. I went with the RS primarily because of the Halos and the thought that they would have costed a lot more then what was quoted on this forum. I actually like the look of the car more without the rear mini wing too.

However, I am very satisfied with this car. For me, after looking at many different cars made by different manufacturers, the Camaro by far is the winner. And I love the ONSTAR features along with the built in cell phone. GM should be pushing these features more for there other cars in their ads. I didn't know anything about ONSTAR prior to buying this car.

To say I have an SS RS is like saying, I have a Camaro yellow...
But 'Her Majesty' doesn't know a thing about North American muscle, or does she?

It's SS/RS for me as well.

People always ask if it's an "SS", not an "RS". I believe it should be SS/RS.

I respect the heritage, but this is not the 60's-70's.

I vote SS/RS for 5th gens. The SS being the dominante role in this relationship. Thats why if you get the RS package, the RS still doesn't get put on the car because they wanted it to be known as the SS regardless... The red tint shows those of us who even know about the RS package that it is an RS.. (you wouldn't know unless you know atleast a little bit about your Camaro) therefor the RS is obviously not as important to advertise andddd soo....

SS/RS.

And I agree with something along the lines of what someone said previously...

You wouldn't say Oh.. I got the RS Camaro with the v8 package or SS package....
NO SIR... v8 is the first thing that gets mentioned.. "SS camaro, with the RS package." SS is not a package. therefor not an added "accessory" It is the type of Camaro you got.

As for the old English technicality.... I am pretty sure they don't utilize any of that when naming cars in USA/Canada.

I drive an SS/RS You can drive your RS/SS if you want !!

Here is another Scenario.

I met a "Canadian Girl named Megan".
I have an SS Camaro with the RS package. In order of appearance - SS-RS = SS/RS

Canadian & SS describe the "type" Girl/Camaro describe the "subject" and Megan/RS describe the extra identifying detail that seperates it from the others.

Thats how I see it anyways.

I would go with SS/RS, mainly because it is an SS with the RS package that is why it has red SS emblems instead or white RS emblems the SS comes first and holds more meaning....

If you have a 1 0r 2 SS with the RS option no where on that car is it badged RS, except that the SS badging is red. SSRS is correct for the 5th Gen

I'm sorry, both are ok, but historically....it's RS/SS. I just put badges in that order on my Super Sport Camaro. There are lots of SS's , but mines a Rally Sport SS. Just how I was raised. Round 2....*Ding*!

SS RS

SS is a performance package.

RS is and appearance package.

SS trumps an RS always.

Exactly! I had a '68 and called it that 25 years ago, and have an '11 and still call it an RS/SS.

That part is subjective. I view that as:

Canadian girl = RS as that's what she is
Megan = SS as thats who she really is

But as I said, subjective to the person
