Second, would the performance of the car you order as an SS with either the L99 or LS3 be any differently if the badge on the decklid said Z28 instead of SS? Would your 4th gen F-body feel any different if you took off the Z28 badging from the front fenders?

Again, no disrespect to the Z28, but sometimes people go a little overboard.

I love the Z28, and wish there was a Z28. Having said that, I'm going to order an SS and will be thrilled with the car I'm sure.
ok point taken. and didn't really get upset over it. just making a point and the internet you can't tell sometimes when someone is joking/humor.

personally I think calling the base V-8 anything besides that with out doing something special doesn't note the SS or Z28 badging. I believe the SS and Z28 should be packages like they were back in the 60's. but the badges have been watered down to be just a trim level. but that's a different discussion entirely. I am glad the camaro is back and intend to buy a vert if no Z will be on it's way.

my 4th gen is sitting up on blocks right now so it won't feel like anything . but that's the thing if I had bought an SS i probably would have wanted to race the 1/4 mile all the time. but I bought a Z and enjoyed the fact that I could debage it and it look like a regular camaro and my over all performance goal is to make the thing carve some serious corners. but that being said oh well.

again I'm very greatful the camaro is back. I knew it would be back in 2002. just like I know the Z28 will be back some day. hopefully it will be soon.
