If I'm not mistaken the z28 was more powerful if not comparable than the SS only in the 1970-1972 model years, as far as before that the z/28 was only an option code for the regular camaro, with the same performance as noted before and it was still not an actual designated model till 70. Then after 1972 there were no more Camaro SS produced till 1996 after witch they took the 24 year rein over from the z28 as the top model in performance and price. Nothing against the z28 legendary performance but more people correctly associate the SS at the top performer. Sad that GM has practically ruined the SS name by branding everything with it as that models top performer. It should have been saved for only a select few, corvette,camaro,impala.
