    Didn't even know my gold Camaro was special! Well, at lease not because of the color. It gets compliments everywhere!

    Sport Gold Metallic
    1998 Camaro SS ragtop

    First post here. I know this is an LS1 forum, but I'll have to include my '94 black Z28 6 speed in the list. In addition to that car, I've owned a white '98 SS T-Top w/AT, a silver '00 Z28 hardtop w/6 speed, and an '02 Sunset Orange Metallic SS T-Top w/6 speed. Unfortunately, they've all been sold.

    However, I still have my very special favorite, a 1998 Sport Gold Metallic SS convertible with a 6 speed. It's one of 7 gold SS ragtops produced and one of only 3 with a black top and dark grey interior, the other 4 were built with tan/neutral top and interior. I factory ordered it new and took possession in the summer of '98 at a now closed Carson City, NV dealership. It has only 14K original miles on it and is in mint condition. Has SLP options as well (really like the 17" SLP chrome wheels).

    Regards,
    -James

    Edit: Site seems to not allow me to upload pics??

    Thanks for the suggestion. I do have a photobucket account, but I get "post denied" when I try to upload pics to this site. I have some nice photos of my gold SS that I'd like to share, but I guess newbies aren't allowed to upload images.

    BTW, I see you have a Sunset Orange SS. I had a factory ordered '02 SS T-top the same color, black leather, 6 speed and all factory and most SLP options. Unfortunately, I had to sell it a few years ago with only a little more than 1,000 miles on the odo. Mint, with CD changer, floor mats, key fobs, etc, still in their wrappers. Sold it for $25K and the dealer who bought it was advertising it for $39K. Guess I let it go too cheap.. :-(

    Saw another gold SS convertible in the parking lot at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway about ten years ago. If memory serves, it was a Super Chevy event. I left a note asking the owner to get in touch, but never heard back.

    The last I heard (and it's been a while), the other two black on gold SS ragtops are located in Michigan and Illinois. Anyone seen them recently?

    I always love it one someone brings this thread back to life. It makes me remember both of my sgm camaros. Both of which I sold 5+ years ago. And it sounds like you've got yourself a really nice SS there miraje. I'd love to see some pictures once you can post them.

    Thanks, 5.7. I'll get some pics up soon. I haven't seen another gold Camaro, of any flavor, 6 or V8, on the road in years. And I've never seen an SGM Firebird, ever. Didn't know they existed until I registered here. Although mine is 1 of 7 gold SS ragtops produced, it's actually 1 of 1, the way I optioned it when I factory ordered it. One thing I didn't order, and I regret the omission, was the trunk mounted 12 disc CD changer.

    Got some details on how these few gold SS's were optioned from Scott Settlemeyer (Camaro Brand Manager) some years ago. Paperwork's buried in a drawer somewhere. Don't know if Scott's still with GM these days??

    Regards..

    Gotta get some pics up of these "endangered species". Gold F Bodies have pretty much disappeared on the roads. And I'm a truck driver..

    Rare...try living in the bush in canada. Snow for 6 months of the year. There is another v6 here sitting under a pine tree near my place and have seen one or two in Ottawa. The other v6 is a little darker than mine, not sure why. Just need to find a hard top ss to complete the set.

    Yeah, gold just never really caught back on after the early 70's. Used to be one of the most popular colors (along with green) back in the late 60's/early 70's. Now you just don't see it all that much anymore.

    We have a gold 70 formula, personally I love the color as does my wife (her favorite car in the stable) But the car gets alot of mixed reviews at the cruises/shows and will generally get passed over for more common colors like red and black. I guess you have to be old to remember/appreciate that color

    My wife drives a 4th gen daily and has had several of them in different colors. If we could have found a gold one it'd be sitting in the garage next to the formula. Too bad they only seem to be in the 98 model year. We (at the time) tend to buy 2000-2002 4th gens and I don't believe gold was even offered then. Too bad.

    Yes, gold was a '98 only color and there weren't many produced. I believe that Hugger Orange was a '99 only color, but that one did nothing for me. I really did like the Sunset Orange Metallic that was offered '01 and '02 F- bodies.

    By the way, this site will still not allow me to upload pics of my gold SS here. I give up.. :-(

    EDIT: Message says "Exceeds your quota by 11.7KB". What quota?? I can't even upload one small pic..

    New update. I travel to Aruba every year and 5 years ago I spotted SGM in a parking lot. Looked like a t-top v6. I saw it every year till last year. Tried to get a picture but the bus kept moving.

    We also have an orange car in the stable. Funny 30 years ago it didn't grab all that much attention at the cruises, but the last 4-5 years it's been nothing but attention. I've also noticed more orange cars at the big shows like Goodguys in the last 2-3 years, and people, as well as mags saying orange is the new black or red. Funny how things like that change seemingly overnight.

    My first new car was a 1979 Cascade Camaro. It was a regional edition offered in OR and WA back then, 1 of 90 produced, all fully loaded with 350's and AT's. White with an orange hood and stripes, tan interior. My girlfriend at the time said it looked like orange sherbert, so his name was shortened to Sherby. There are some pics online available with doing a "1979 cascade camaro pictures" search..

    Sold Sherby in '83 down in LA. It's probably the only one in the state of California if it's still running..
