Before life became filled with acronyms such as, LOL, BFF, FAQ, FYI, YMMV, and the one all married men hear at home– EOD (End of Discussion), there were a couple of acronyms that filled the soul of a Camaro owner: Z28 and COPO. Let’s take a look at what the meaning of RPO is, and what is offered, or in some cases would not be offered, to a new Camaro buyer.

GM designated this code as, “The Special Service Package”, or in layman terms, it’s known as “The Police Package”.
