History tends to show that in the cases of people making guesses on products they want to see come to fruition, they general underestimate the actual price in the misguided hope that they might actually be able to afford to put one in their garage.

It's like the old saying about building a house. Take the number you think it will take you to build the home you want, double it, and then add 5% and you'll probably be in the ballpark when all is said and done.

I certainly don't think it will be anywhere near that drastic with the Z28, but I think a lot of people are going to be surprised by the MSRP when it is finally released. But then again, maybe GM will prove me wrong.
and then you have realists like me that know the price is going to be close to the gt500 since that's the target market. granted I give it about a 5k window. 1500 each way of the gt500 price. that's what I expect. what I hope for is less but I expect more.
