2002 Final Production
GM Plant St. Therese, Quebec - Canada
On August 27, 2002 at just after 9am local time, the last Pontiac Firebird rolled off the assembly line at Ste. Therese, Quebec, followed closely by the last Camaro. Both cars were ordered as "non-saleable" and are a part of the GM Heritage Collection. It was truly a very dark day for Camaro enthusiasts worldwide.
The third car from the end of the line was a Bright Red Z28 Coupe that was, indeed, the "Last saleable 4th generation Camaro". It was donated to S.A.V.E. (Students Against Violence Everywhere) – and auctioned off at the Kruse Fall auction in Auburn Indiana over the Labor Day weekend of 2002. Among both cheers and tears, a Camaro Enthusiast from Michigan had the winning bid of $72,500.
