No Stereo-Work Around?
 
Whats up everyone!

The only thing I have a reall issue with is the lack of a radio. I loved the face the car is stripped down for performance, but I still would like some tunes every now and then when on the streets. Any ideas????

listen to the exhaust notes... or wait and see if they make a more street friendly one?

Mikes SS 03-28-2013 09:22 AM

you can add one, youll just have to run all the wires for the speakers and power yourself..not that much of an issue

+1!! If thats a big issue for you, A. Dont buy the car B. install one yourself and keep it hidden. You dont want to be that guy that owner a Z/28 and installed a stereo everyone can see thats not ment to go with the car. To me it takes away its autheticity...

woodside783 03-28-2013 09:33 AM

I thought he said the one speaker was a option?

WTF???? you quoted what i said because??

Honestly think that is stupid on GM's part to not alteast make it an option. They are limiting sales to people who want a track ready car instead of a street ready track car. NO sound deadening, optional a/c but leave a back seat?

The radio is there. It has one speaker for the chimes.

Back seat is more for looks. I wouldn't want to ride back there

woodside783 03-28-2013 09:49 AM

I agree I have never been back there and I never will

No back seat (2 seater car) used to mean higher insurance premiums. Don't know if that has anything to do with it or not.

So is the head unit just an empty shell? Looks like a disc player is there?

I like idea of a hidden radio setup, good idea!

I've done a few restorations and a new radio in a classic car looks out of place.. I've put them in glove box, center console, ect.. a stereo with Bluetooth its even easier because you can use ur smartphone (Pandora) with or iTunes content to control ur stereo.

Richy_Rich 03-28-2013 12:03 PM

It has a radio, get an iPod adapter... 1 speaker jammin'

b4z 03-28-2013 08:30 PM

Radio should definitely be an option. As should a quiet sound group.
If chevy were really serious about all Camaro trims they would have done aluminum doors. That's an easy 50 lbs.

77rs 03-28-2013 08:35 PM

I never listen to my radio! Just want to hear the engine and dual-mode exhaust!

Get an iPod and plug those ear buds in... the car is perfect as is. No A/C for me either.

I think he was agreeing with you...

2001ragtop 03-29-2013 12:01 PM

no radio = car is meant for drivers

if you listen to radio for traffic reports, then this is odd, as a Z28 is not made as a daily driver to be on highways (but one speaker is enough to get a traffic report..)

just put a better stereo in it if you need that so badly.

Get yourself one of these bad boys for cruising and remove it when racing.

I recently priced a Camaro and a Corvette. The Corvette was higher. It's more based on the price of the car, which for this Z/28 ain't gonna be cheap.
