i see it as a slap in the face of the original z28. a 427 wasn't an option for a z28. what option code got that engine . . . . oh yeah that pesky zL1. i think the zL1 should've gotten the LS7 seeing as how the ZL1 was the only car that came with a 427 and kept everything else how it is and the z28 should've gotten the LSA engine since a 302 is out of the question for the modern day enthusiasts mentality of no replacement for discplacement.
Also showing these numbers from factory the z28 was not the fastest car in the lineup, pretty much only faster than the ss350 in 67 and most likely faster than the 69 ss350 but i couldn't find a factory time slip for it :(

Not driving your car to keep miles off of it, is like not having sex with your girlfriend so her next boyfriend will appreciate it more.
