No, he's serious. I was big into VW's for a long time and I knew a couple people that had harlequins... they are super rare and actually pretty popular. I think it would be weird to see a camaro harlequin though... all the VW people would be like WTF? lol

Actually VW did it with the mk5 rabbit in a silver scheme... let me see if i can find a pic

No, I would not buy one. I would be interested in GM getting some more colors for the Camaro line.

Modern versions of the 1st generation colors is still a decent idea. IMO

I'm still pushing for Royal Plum.

2010 5thgen,

Ford has used some very good looking retro colors. Competition Orange coming in 2012.

Grabber blue, Yellow Blaze, Ingot silver, etc..

Sunlit gold? I think was a take it or leave it color that was used in 2010.


I like variety, just not all the colors on one car.

The only time I've ever seen GM do anything like that (but not for production) was when I was with my dad and he took me on a tour of the Corvette plant. When we visted the skunkwerks area inside the middle of the plant, I saw a weird looking 'vette on a lift. It was circa 1987, before the ZR-1 came out for public consumption. There were rumors about some magical killer Corvette on the horizon, but there it was in front of me- confirmed. On the floor were scattered all sorts of parts, including life-sized balsa wood/plastic LT5 engines and transmissions.

But the body panels were painted all different colors, and looked like it would give the DuPont Nascar car a run for it's money as a multi-colored lollipop. My guess was they were testing color pallette possibilities. The engineers/techs inside "the box" acted like they've never seen a person before and was so estatic to show me around and tell me about the car. I was in the Navy then, and knew how to keep a secret. I told no one about what I saw in there until AFTER they officially released the ZR-1 a few years later to the public. That experience was so cool. I'll never forget that. I referred to it as the Calico Corvette.
