What special edition Camaros would you like to see?

This may have been asked before........but here goes.....

Please -- no arguing (altho on this board, we very rarely have that problem...)
Just would like everyones' opinion on what 'special edition' Camaros would be appropriate.
To save time -- do not include RS/SS/Z28........
We anxiously await your reply!

I would like to keep the special editions kept to an absolute minimum.
Ford is really overdoing this, I just saw this Breast Cancer edition Mustang earlier this week. http://www.fordvehicles.com/warriorsinpink/mustang/

While I understand the cause, if I didn't think they already have too many I wouldn't give it a second thought. With their sales on the decline, they are overdoing it.

In my opion, GM should be creative here. It is easy to use names like Nickey or Yenko. I'm assuming at least two of the RPO designators you mention above are already in use, I hope GM can put their creative minds to work and come up with something new for us.

Corvette has the C6-R. Will there be a race-ready version of the Camaro (I'm not talking with options like Air Conditioning, I'm talking REAL race version like the 1LE Camaro was) That would be a nice 'special edition' IMO

*Buys Breast Cancer Camaro* <---Sarcasm.


I Just Want A Decent Camaro With A Huge V8,Leather, And A Hardtop.
Whatever Car Fits That Is Perfect To Me.

Otherwise Im On A Budget And Special Editions Aren't Budget Cars ...

The anniversary car is a must. B4C and the pace cars too. Why not have some sort of edition marking the anniversary for the 69 camaro since it will come out in 09 and that car was an influence in the design.

Here's my brainstorm:
  • Transformer Edition Camaro would be cool, although since the production car comes 1 year after the movie, not sure it'd still be relevant.
  • B4C and 1LE options would be nice to see.
  • Anniversary packages (in appropriate years of course).
  • Berger cars, Dick Harrell cars, GMMG cars.
  • SLP involement on some sort of car? Camaro SLP Edition or something?
  • Fbodfather Signature Edition

1. I agree, it would be too late to have the impact you would want
2. Suck up

Hmm, here's a thought.
What if they do a sequel - Transformers 2 in 2008.
Then a Transformers Edition Camaro would work!

If Saleen can pull off a Parnelli Jones edition.

Then GM/aftermarket should be able to produce a Mark Donohue '69 edition.

ZL1!!! I like that Sunoco creation too. Let nicky and Yenko build their own (you know they are dying to anyway) keep the GM ones special.
