I'm so glad to see several folks are also wanting to see a return of the "blues" from the 1st gen. I remember one of the Camaro sales posters that my Dad had at the dealership; it was that gorgeous LeMan's blue! I kept that poster for YEARS...even took it to college with me to hang in my dorm room, next to the poster of the red Corvette!!!
Love me some bowties....since forever!

because it is the 50th anniversary, 1967 was the first year, its just like when you work somewhere and they lay you off for a year and call you back, you pick up where you left off

I don't understand your argument, in 2017 it will have been 50 years since the first camaro, hence 50th anniversary, i mean ford might as well have put the mustang on hiatus in the 70's as god awful as those were. And as a matter of fact i do know a company that shut down for 8 years and reopened.

It doesn't matter what we want if the color doesn't sell well. I just hope we don't have to pay $7000 extra for a nice blue in the sixth gen. Just another reminder that 2010 started with 10 colors for the Camaro and now we have 9. We lost a color and it doesn't look like we're getting it back. If we did it would probably just be another reddish, brownish metallic concoction. The closest we have to a nice blue right now is Dark Blurple and that's a shame. Maybe the production of the Camaro moving to Lansing will allow it to lay claim to more of it's own color choices instead of them being dictated by other models. I'm sure there will be other models built on the same line but I'm hoping the success of the fifth gen will give the Camaro priority for some real, brighter color choices.

I do like metallic, but a metallic version of one of those old blues, white stripes, and white leather... Drooling.

Why not be able to choose the color you want. I believe the 25th Camaro was not locked into any one color for the anniversary car. I want mine to be red, but I don't see why it has to be set to one color.

The 25th Anniversary cars had a limited # of color/stripe options.

Correct, originally the Heritage Package was only available in white, red, black. I believe Purple and Polo Green were added later in the year as color options as well.

Why do you guys do that? Are you as lonely as he is? He's old enough to know what anniversary means. Even if Chevy discontinued the camaro next year they would still be able to commemorate the 50th anniversary 75th 100th and so on and so on of the year they made it. He knows that. If Chrysler wants to they can release a 50th anniversary edition barracuda next year as it would be 50 years since the first one came off the line. Hes old enough to understand that. He's OBVIOUSLY trolling for attention. But I don't blame him for it. It's his nature. I blame you for feeding him. You should also know better. So I have to assume you did it for attention also. Please PM each other and get eachothers phone numbers and emails so you can talk to eachother all day and leave that dead horse off this thread.

Exactly!

But, I do like the idea of several body/stripe color options with the anniv edition package.

I would love a 50th as well, but I'm a little scared after the 14 refresh.
That Blue would be a great choice. I just hope they have MAJOR advances in paint technology by then.

I have a feeling thats exactly when they introduce the Z/28 in the 6th gen. I wouldnt be surprised if they limited the amount to 602 cars as that of '67. Who knows? Produce one that is 500+NA HP stripped out and I'll be getting one. I'd love the bumble bee stripe to come back and have it look as good as it did back then! The 5th gen it looks ok on them but its too pointed to have one.

....I think that's way off track, what sense would it make to make a Z28 next year and drop it without any lineage going forward, for no reason. Then, re-introduce it at a later point? No sense at all.

Boy does this topic take me back..... oh 12-13 years.

I always wanted a Corvette, and decided to wait until the 50th Anniversary to buy my dream car.

All kinds of rumors of big power, redesigns, limited production.... afterall this is Chevrolet's flag ship....

And what did they do..... google it, I can't live through the let down agian.

I did love my Corvette experience, went to the assembly plant and built the car, museum delivery... 50th caravan... great memories, but I did not pay $5000 for the 50th edition. My Electron Blue looked great, was built to MY spec and the badges still read 50th on them..
