A Guide to the Sub Forums of Camaro5

Since there seems to be a some confusion regarding the various subforums, and even a lack of awareness in some cases I thought I'd make a thread briefly explaining the purpose of each.


General Camaro Forums

5th Gen Camaro General Discussions

General 5th Gen talk not covered by other subforums

This seems to be the most misunderstood section of the site. If something doesn't fit into a category we already have, post it here. So don't ask about what headers you should buy, or what polish we recommend, or talk about your lost dog. Those threads belong elsewhere. But if its a piece of Camaro news, or a general question about the car feel free to post it here.

Camaro ZL1 Forum - ZL1 Specific Topics
ZL1 Specific Topics

Fairly simple and straight forward. If its about the ZL1 (but not ZL1 vs ____ ) it goes here. There is also a sub-subforum here regarding Engine | Exhaust | Bolt-On | Drivetrain Modifications specific to the LSA in the ZL1.

Camaro Z28 Forum - Z28 Specific Topics
Z28 Specific Topics

Need I explain more?

This is entirely made up of subforms. If you questions specific to your area, have a regional owners club, or a local event talk about it here. Occasionally large events will be drawing on people from neighbouring regions so don't forget to check out whats going on in the surrounding area too. Also a good place to hang out and talk about local 'off topic' items. There is also a local marketplace.
