Wink 50th Anniversary Edition Camaro

Any rumblings on this one yet? I'm really planning on getting one, just hoping it's one heck of an automobile!
I'd REALLY like to see some throw back type features, like...

~A BEAUTIFUL Blue...like LeMan's Blue, Marina Blue Metallic, or another great blue from the 67,68,or 69 models.
~how about beautiful white leather seating surfaces as an option for those of us that are "all grown up"
~hidden halo headlamps...[think '69 Camaro], today's technology can make them work without a hiccup
~ updated 67 or 69-ish tail lights
~hp that makes people pay attention...
~throw back nose stripe and badging...


PLEASE CHEVROLET give us 1st gen lovers something to be proud of...I mean, after all, I was there! [yeah...I'm older, but not dead! I love a FAST & GORGEOUS car!]

What would you like to see incorporated into the 50th Anniv edition???

I plan on getting a 50th anniversary as well. I'd love to see a dark green, like Fathom Green from the 1st gens. The new C7 color Lime Rock Green looks like a good match.
I'd also love to see hideaway headlights, but that's not going to happen from the factory. Government regs have killed that, that is why Corvette had to ditch the flip up lights when the C6 came out.
Factory houndstooth would be cool too! Or at least make the 5th gen seats fit in a 6th gen so I can keep my current interior!

I'm sure they will do a nice job with it whatever they come up with. I love every anniversary edition they have done so far. I like the white leather or houndstooth idea. A nice blue with white stripes would do it for me. I would also like to see the red, white, and blue Camaro badge make a comeback. It would be nice if they could give the anniversary edition it's own gauge facing, maybe in white. I'm sure they'll go all out for the big 50.

I too am looking forward to the 50th anniversary Camaro. Plus it will be the 6th gen AND on a lighter platform.

However, I'm not looking forward to waiting a couple years..........

I don't know that they'd repeat a color scheme. I'm pretty sure that's the combo used for the 2002 35th Anniversary Camaro. The stripes may have been silver, but I'm sure someone who owns (or has seen one in person) can confirm. I'd personally love to see a vintage first gen color brought back myself (LeMans Blue, [a real] Hugger Orange, Rallye Green or Daytona Yellow).

I love the 45th...I'm sure they'll knock the 50th out of the park too.

All I pray for is a return to the classic blue and white color combo for the anniversary edition. That would be a homerun for sure. If not that, then my favorite color combo from the 3rd gens which would be a dark green/ tan combo. And definitely a factory body kit that sets it apart but isn't ostentatious like how the 35th was.

I'd like to see them not use Carbon Flash Metallic again until the 50th.

I already have a savings going for the 50th anniversary. Can't wait! It WILL be in my driveway no matter what

As long as they 1 up the 45th I think it will be amazing because the 45th was pretty sweet

I would love to add a 50th anniv. edition to my collection as long as they offer a blue like they did in the first Gens just as the op stated. The ZL1 pace car is close to the blue from the early days.

Same here on the savings fund - provided they don't '14 the 6th gen.
