GM doesn't do this to base models because that is what makes them affordable. You have to pay to play and that is why the Z28 ZL1 etc make them more money. Not for the fact that they sell a lot of these cars but that they get press time which promotes the camaro in general. The base models sell because they are cheaper versions of the beast.
