1. Original 1Gen Z/28's were NO lighter than other Camaros.

3. Original 1Gen Z/28's could be ordered with EVERY option, but AC and an automatic.
4. Original 1Gen Z/28's had superior (for its day) suspensions modified from a regular Camaro. Today's Z/28 has a superior suspension based on a regular Camaro.
5. Chevy already beat both Boss's with the 1LE - they didn't build the Z/28 to do it.
6. Yes the 1969 427 Camaro's were awesome, however the 2014 is on a much much higher level. BTW, Did you know in 1969 there was a ZL1-Z/28?

In closing the 2014 Z/28 is every bit a Z/28 in its original intent. A road-racing Camaro built with superior performance and handling capabilities.
"3. Original 1Gen Z/28's could be ordered with EVERY option, but AC and an automatic."

And no convertible.

"BTW, Did you know in 1969 there was a ZL1-Z/28?"

I've never seen nor heard of this one, I'd like more info on it.

I agree completely with everything else you said!
