Unfortunately if GM did that the magazines would completely rip the Camaro a new one. While smart, educated people like Camaro5 members don't pay any attention to what the magazines say, the majority of the general public does and that would seriously hurt sales. Not to mention all those people who wanted thrills AND frills would end up buying a GT500 if GM did that.

7 minutes? But the flip side to that is, think of the few that got one! They were really happy.
But, honestly, I want the options. I have a 4 door hot rod right now but there is something about a Camaro that is different. As a kid I dreamed of having the top dog Camaro like a Yenko or a COPO and now as an adult I'm able to do it and when it becomes available, I'll have one. Corvettes are cool cars but Camaros are muscle cars! I want a part of that history!

Wasn't meant to stay in production. I think some things are just lost on people sadly.

wasn't it stated in a mag or online there may be more than just one new Camaro?

Look at the Mustang; Bullit, Boss, etc.
I think Camaro may see; Z/28 (tracker), ZL1 or COPO (monster), and the executive model due out.
My reasoning is this car is HOT and GM will feed the fire if they are smart!
And I believe they are!

Hmmmm, I would say that past history does not agree with your statement. The 28,103 Z/28s sold in '67-'69 were sold in spite of not being available with air conditioning, automatic transmisson or in a convertible. A new Z/28 does not necessarily have to appeal to the entire mass market, it only needs to appeal to those likely to buy a high performance focused automobile (which is NOT the majority of the general public). The "missing" options certainly didn't stop me from buying a new Z/28 in '69, though at my present age I'd probably like to be able to get AC, but manual transmission is the way I'd go and I really don't care for a vert.

A Z/28 with an auto or convertible is not a Z/28.
A Z/28 is a streetable track car!

As a side note, I have not fantasized about a car like this since the 70's. I actually feel a little tingly.

Maybe Al Op was really looking for an answer to his question "what should we call it?"
