Z/28 was the badass car with mystique. Camaro SS? That was your friend's mom's daily driver.
Back in the day SS's were were more than Mom's car, but as for the Z-28 badging is concerned, well that calling card carried a do or die attitude.
Sure hope GM can find that special magic again....
True that my friend...

Way back when, for the most part, the guys who were running one had their _hit together..they "got it", as in it was understood of their place in the street heirarchy. They were "hopped up". Sorry, we didn't say modded.

Agreed, and it can be produced so much more above the formidable 2SS. It GM wants it, so it will be done. They have all the hardware laying around to do it without alot of trouble.
