Iconic Camaro Colors & Schemes

I need some help in getting a list of some of the more memorable camaro colors and paint schemes. If anyone is wondering, it's future reference for a project that will take place in the years ahead.

Off the top of my head:

(I'm sure some of these were used on more than just Camaros)

The white with orange stripes
hugger orange (The hugger was a short lived nickname for the Z28)
white with red stripes (Heritage edition..my old z28)


As you can see, I don't have many right now. Basically when I think of Mustang I think of a grabber blue Mustang, that is what I am trying to do with the Camaro. Almost like a tribute to the past generations, something a little eye catching, but any old school hot rodder will know the paint job was more than just for looks.

The camaro never really had any signature paint schemes except for their pace cars

67 white with a blue bumble bee stripe and blue interior
69 white with orange ralley stripes and orange intierior
82 silver with a blue bottom half of car and a blue and silver interior
93 black with a white bottom half car and with multi color striping interior the same
97 white with orange stripes and a with white leather or houdstooth interior
02 was red with a checkered flag decals

The name hugger applied to all 69 camaros and that orange had a few differnt names through GM

My first toy 30 years ago and still enjoying it
No replacement for displacement
