darn, I changed channels a minute too soon! I hope they have one at the Super Bowl this year too. That'll get a much bigger audience watching than this past World Series.

thats because that car isnt supposed to be like that. the poduction model cars in a v6 rs have a red RS badge, the v8 rs has a red SS badge. i know the red rs is a v6 body but a v8 motor. that is because they changed it after they decided to show the v6 as the main vehicle first.

I know all that- just saying don't be surprised by any combination of things you see on a pre-pro car... a good deal of things could and will be different when they actually start rolling off the main production line.

Not trying to get into a pissing match my friend; agreed- we both know better. It was your post that said "if you saw an rs badge it was a V6." Maybe I misunderstood- just clarifying it for others...

Well then I wish I was his brother.

Im not a phillys fan, but i believe hes 24, not 21.

But still

Obviously we all know what it was supposed to be, that is why nobody was allowed to take pictures of the car with the hood open when it was on display. This is not a big deal and for the production version this will be a 2LT/RS and nothing more. However the one given to the baseball player will be this exact car which may be one of a kind as being a V8 LS3 stick with the body of a V6/RS.. GM is not taking the car back and giving a production one later.. I would have rather had them have a raffle at the game and auction off the Camaro than give it to someone who already has many exotic cars.
