Happy birthday, Camaro. GM's favorite pony car turns 45 in 2012, and Chevrolet is celebrating with a special 45th Anniversary cosmetic package for both Camaro and Camaro SS. Here's the official scoop courtesy of GM:

"The new 45th Anniversary Special Edition package is available on 2LT and 2SS models. All come standard in Carbon Flash Metallic (black) and include a unique rally stripe in red and silver, with 45th Anniversary graphics on the stripes. Also included are special fender emblems, new 20-inch wheel design in deep silver, RS-style tail lamp lenses, standard rear spoiler, standard HID headlamps, body-color roof molding and special-trimmed interior."

Price for these extras? $1375. We wonder, though, what kind of effect that figure will have on future prices. With pony cars back in the forefront, is this an easy way to pick up a future collectible?

The big Camaro news is something right on the horizon, though: Camaro ZL1. Power comes from a 6.2-liter LSA engine backed by a six-speed transmission. Output is said to be near 550 horsepower. Who said the pony car wars ended back in the '60s?
