Now Z28. Sure it should be in the same vein as the Boss. Is that not what the Z28 was? The boss fighter? Then it should go back to its roots and be a track ready race car like the Boss..not some gussed up over the top ZL1. Sure would we all like to order a ZL1? Sure but the price is not there..ok how bout a race version of the same car for a little less?
Well actually back in the day the Boss 302 was the Z/28 fighter, not the other way around. The Z/28 was kicking the Mustang's butt in the TransAm Sedan Series and the Boss 302 was brought out to try and change that. As a side note, the Z/28 was running a 302cid way before the Mustang did.
