I don't know of any particular meaning behind the alpha-neumeric code, unlike with say the Olds 4-4-2. What I do know is that Z28 was the regular production order that you had to ask for to get the street version of the trans am series race car. It had a 302 cu (5L) small block V8 that was rev happy. The cars also came with a very good suspension setup as well, making them some of the best handling cars of the day.
