I want a new IROC :)

Yup, I went and did it. I didn't just call for a Gen 5 Z28 like everybody else. I want a 2010/11 IROC Z (I'll settle for an IROC SS).

I have always idolized the F-Body IROCs. Growing up, walking up my street coming back from school, I would always notice the house with the 2 Camaros that had IROC-Z emblazoned on the side. I didn't even know they were Camaros back then, they were just IROCs to me. I want an IROC

I thought IROC (racing series) was dead. . .even if it's not it's just a licensing issue like Trans am would be.

Hey if it's dead, it should be easier to buy the naming rights

As has been posted in other threads in these forums, that's probably not going to happen. Chevy had to license the IROC name when they made them (i.e. pay a fee to IROC for each one produced), Chrysler had to do the same when they made an IROC. Several months ago IROC went bankrupt and sold all of their assets at auction, I don't know if the naming rights were sold (doubt it) and if they were who now owns them. It appears to be a piece of past history that is gone, perhaps never to be revived.

I'm sure some people feel the same way about "rice badges" for an IROC as I do about the Z28. . .lol. no argument. . .just stating a fact.

I always though IROC was perfect for a car like that. I see it and think "yup, you sure do"

There is no point to an Iroc Camaro now since that racing league is dead and gone.

I've never understood the affection for the IROC moniker

It just superceded the Z28 name, so it's a glorified Z28 with a dumb name. Not only did it merely take precedence badgingwise, it's not even a Camaro specific name.

It left the Camaro for a Dodge Daytona for goodness sakes! Who wants that association? LOL

I've never liked the IROC name, gimme Z28 or SS.

Growing up in Norwood, OH where the IROCs rolled off the assembly line, knowing my dad had his hand in there shoving them thru......I love the IROC legacy.
