Something caught my eye while I was stuck in traffic waiting for an exceptionally long light; a 4th gen Camaro in Sport Gold Metallic. Knowing that this dealer occasionally finds some vehicles sporting rare colors, I knew I needed to investigate...  

Sport Gold Metallic was a rare color for the 4th gen Camaro - 1,542 were produced in this color for 1998, and 5 were produced in this color for 1999 as part of a Days Inn promotional giveaway.

Locating the online listing, it turns out this is a 1998 model - so, rare, but not ultra-rare. Unfortunately, this one happens to be a V6 (meh) and an auto (boo).

Still, it makes my day seeing any car in a rare factory color... though I do wish it was Bright Purple Metallic...
