If we are going to use the "blue car" and the "car blue" argument, than SS/RS would be correct. 

If we stay with that argument, than we go from biggest to smallest.  IE:  GM Chevrolet Camaro SS/RS.  GM (manufacturer), Chevrolet (division), Camaro (model), etc. and so on, biggest to smallest.

The bigger feature of the two is an SS.  The smaller feature is RS.  (It also cost more money for the SS option than the RS option).  Also, Chevrolet themselves help answer this question as the SS emblems take precedent over the RS emblems when both options are ordered.  Therefore, they thought it more important to emphasize the SS over the RS.  Thus, SS should come first. 

They had embems for each option separately, but no emblem to represent both together.  Maybe it's because GM didn't know the answer to this question either and therefore, just picked SS to take over. 

I like SS/RS because it breaks up the S's.  If you take out the slash mark, you have either SSRS or RSSS.   To me, SSRS looks better than something that sounds like "ARSE".  Since I label a lot of picks that both options and often leave out the slash mark when saving a name for the jpg, it just seems to look better with SS first followed by RS.

But then again, either way works and gets the message across.  Thanks a lot for making me think about this oh so trivial yet gosh darn important matter.

Of course, I have no idea how to label this car or what order to put these options.

By far the best explanation thus far. I also know what you mean about running the 3 S's in sequence. I once had a license plate the read; 69RSSS, it stumped my son's the first time they saw it. However, I'm still on the other side of the fence with this one, so I'm glad you ended by saying either way works.

SS/RS would be the latin way.  Smooth or not ...Adjative before the noun.

The chicken didn't cross the road, the road moved under the chicken.

Of course Z22 (RS) comes before Z27 (SS). I know, I know, Z27 didn't come about until 1969, but before that, there was no specific SS code, only engine codes.  So RS/SS.

There's another thread that I argued that SS was the model and RS was the option, therefore SS/RS should be correct (not that I am any authority on the subject). Another Gentleman corrected me stating his Father used to sell them and ALWAYS referred to them as RS/SS.
Well I was just watching some Camaro.org YouTube videos before bed (as you do), and watched the "1968 Chevrolet Communication kit, Sept 1967".

Here's a still from the video that may clear the debate up once and for all.
Note the 4 models...Base | RS | SS | RS/SS
