I agree.

The auto enthusiast magazines will likely run the Z/28 in the quarter mile as part of their perfunctory testing, but as most of us know the Z/28 was not designed for quarter mile racing....

I doubt that anyone knows exactly how much the Z/28's MSRP will be at this point because it's very unlikely that exact pricing has been determined by GM yet. Therefore, if anyone states that they...

I still don't understand how driving your cars and enjoying them while you're alive prevents you from willing them to your grandchildren and having them enjoy your cars as well?
