Nope they will be like that was not avail in 2010 this was done aftermarket, therefor making the classic not original, no longer being worth as much.

Maybe in 10 years it will be worth more but once it reaches the classic status not so much.

granted I may not keep it that long bu you never know. I just like having the option.
If you're even considering this stuff then you must not drive the car that much.

The classic cars that are worth top $$$ are both rare and rarely driven.

If your camaro is driven over 2k miles per year the addition of HUD will not be a big deal in 40 years, especially if your HUD is done correctly and looks OEM.

Well I've shot the mileage out of the water for the next 10 years. LMAO
But you help make my point, "done correctly" to me and this is just my opinion... done correctly would be to do it with a OEM pre formed with HUD dash.

The bezel should hide any small cutting issues.
