This was a car that you could drive on the road.
Refer to the options and the PRICE.
To go from stock to Z/28, the price of the car did not increase 50+ percent.

It is what it is. GM apparently has a niche audience that they want to cater to.
Posting a link to a website isn't an elaboration... do your homework.

..... You've never driven one, have you.

Have you ever driven anything that had fat tires and manual steering? How about a manual clutch that was so stout it made you walk in circles? Or a transmission that would sing as you revved? Yes. Yes I have. The Z/28 wasn't a cushy street car...

In the 60's options were like a Burger King menu... You could have it your way. It's not like that anymore.

Go back and price the 1st gen with 4 wheel disk brakes, twin carbs, posi, etc..... THAT'S what they did with the 2014...
