1LE?
 
I have been thinking about this lately...anyone think they will ever do this. Light weight race car style? better susp. etc.? a stripper car.

also anyone know when the vert is coming out and also if they will produce a z28 vert?

I'd heavily bet against it any time soon. Too many orders would be placed, and GM isn't ready to fill all of those special orders as regular market orders. If demand falls in a few years, maybe GM will consider the possibility, but I would rather get a Pedders suspension on my own.

The convertible is about a year out. I'm uncertain of a Z28 convertible timeframe.

No thanks. Just make the z28 and my SS faster please.

wow, Some people like the old race car feel. They also hold there value better cause there different and the older ones are worth twice as much as a regular car.

I absolutely love the idea of a 1LE package. Less frills, suspension upgrade, and stuff like that.

GM doesn't seem to do "stripper" performance cars anymore, if anything they are going in the other direction. (Like how they recently killed the Z51 performance package you could get on a base C6 vette, now you have to buy the more expensive Gran Sport model to get the same stuff.)

I would prefer a 1LE package.

Recluse 12-21-2009 07:50 PM

I'd definitely be interested.

1SS is as close as it gets. I thought they couldnt be more awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PAUL SS 12-21-2009 07:59 PM

I wondered that a while back, check out some of the responses from back then.

That older thread was pretty interesting.

That said, I couldn't do without A/C. The summer here is both brutally hot and humid.

Otherwise, I could do without power windows, power locks, a radio, cruise control, etc.

Blue Book on a Z28 with these specs would be $3200 private party. I dont think the asking price is too much since one is on ebay for buy it now of 29,900!

Only 12,452 z28 were produced. Thats 3.8% of the z28s. They are on pace to produce 103,000 camaros in the first year of production. They produced 100,838 Camaros in 1991.

Seems like a 1 of 500 tag would work. Do it similar to the g8 1 of 888 custom badges. Skip the AC, use the v6 body work, ss brakes, engine, nice tranny cooler (auto), oil cooler, adjustable shocks, big sway bars, stiff springs, skip bluetooth, no radio, no shark fin, standard spoiler, no engine cover, c6 exhaust tips, no onstar, lose power seats for standard ones, etc... Just a start to the wish list!

Its fine if your not into the idea but i bet theres at least 500 that are.

Does anyone know if GM used the B4C for the new Police Camaros?

+ heavy duty alternator.

"1LE" would be a great "identifier" for the equivalent of what Mustang sells as a "Track Pack"...upgraded suspension for BOTH SS and V6 w/RS (w/Brembos?)...

MikesZ 12-22-2009 01:59 PM

Similar to a B4C police version...I like the package on this used pd car I found for sale at http://swps.com/usedpdcar.html
