The '10 SS will in all likelihood become the '69 SS collector's idol of the future.

But that still doesn't give dealerships the right to gouge us 20% over MSRP... Considering they win on invoice, plus 3% holdbacks, not to mention, they don't have to advertise the vehicle. It's simply, plain robbery.
I don't agree with your analysis about the future of the Camaro. This car was designed with these standards in mind. That is the reason they chose a direct injection V6 and the L99. The standards you speak of don't go into full effect until 2016 which is after this generation of Camaro will be redesigned.
