I 'll tell you where we'll be in 50 years.

Before you start your car you'll have to scan your license into a box by the column. That way they'll know who is behind the wheel. Then there will be...

They pop up from time to time locally to me. I've never seen one with over 1000 miles. Typically have ~500 miles.

I haven't read all of the replies but don't the new Z06's have tuning that won't give full power until there are some miles on the engine? Could that be the case here with the ZL1?

In all actuality the true top-speed will be nearly the same no matter what rear gear you choose. The car doesn't make enough power to hit redline in 10th gear with 2.73's. Way too much drag. The...

I've owned 2 third gens myself an '87 IROC 305 TPI, and a '91 Z28 350 TPI with G92. All of the mint or excellent red IROC's we could find on eBay were going for $18k-$28k. So even when/if she decides...

Just picked up an IROC-Z for my girl!

They will still be able to put a big V-8 into a Camaro, so long as they sell 15 4-banger equipped Camaro's to offset it. In the long run they won't sell nearly as many V-8 engines, so there won't be...

I don't like the fact that he acknowledged that there may be an end to the V-8. Obviously that time isn't coming very soon, but he did say it. CAFE standards will be the death of big engines. Right...

It's possible that the auto equipped SS is .5-1.0 seconds than a regular SS with a manual at a track. I would believe it.

Agree! I don't think this package will be the sweet $3500 deal that it used to be. I'd expect a 1LE option on an SS to run close to the $10k mark. Base SS is $37k..............

30 more hp, 150+lbs lighter, magnetic suspension, bigger brakes, bigger wheels/tires, and a kick-ass engineering team. I'd bet on it.

A 429 Cobra Jet Mach1 is worth a decent amount of coin. So is the '70 Mustang fastback with the big-block. Even the Mach1's with 351's can fetch $25-$35k. The 2 'Vette's that were there are worth...
