Who's tired of Z28 threads, lol?

I don't know about you, but I'm about Z28'd out Getting no information sucks (can't blame anyone for that) but it seems like we're all getting sucked into repeatedly regurgitating the same, d@mn thing in all these polls. Of course I'm not going to say that I don't keep posting in these threads too, but I wonder how many of you are getting tired of reading the same posts in different threads?

Hey - pick an option and go on about why you are, or are not tired of it; call it blowing off steam, if you will.

I'm burned out on the arguments over what engine should be in it, what other things should be in it, what price it would be with X engine. BUT I'll post in them.


part of the reason i wanted that dream Z thread to just be you go in tell what you want and why and no arguing as to why you want that. I just want people to express why they want that and it be done.

I'm ok either way. It's fun to speculate. I just don't enjoy the "GM Fails if........." stuff. It will be what it will be when it will be.

You know, I enjoy reading how people rationalize what they want; I think it's very interesting. I often read things I hadn't even thought of. It's pretty cool.

We need something new to coo over

All of you with SSs should be. I never mean to come off that I think it's a lesser car; you just can have a debate like this without something being better than the other. Heck, I might still end up with an SS; I'll just have to get a tatoo to match it too I guess

I like to hear the opinions of people on this....it's very interesting to hear the tone of the community on this subject, if you listen...very interesting, indeed.

What I don't like....is repetitive discussion...multiple threads on only slightly different topics...namely, the engine...

That said, I can't get upset over the Z/28....

The biggest thing I'd appreciate from GM at this point would just be confirmation of Z28 and that the design is final. Then, I don't feel compelled to repeatedly state my opinions, ya' know? I can't really say why I feel that way except I feel compelled to make the voice for people who are thinking like me I guess.

I'd agree with that. Perhaps, that's why I feel like smaller engines don't really fit it. Back in the day, a person could order up to 427 ci; the largest engine in the GM line-up and the most powerful. I guess that's why I default to that feeling now. I don't think I'm quite forward-thinking enough to accept a significantly smaller engine in Z28; that may be my biggest hang-up.

but a DI engine might be a smaller DI engine but still an 8 count

I didn't want to say I was talking about any ideas of a TI-4 or even a TTV-6; sorry. Yeah - I'm not going to beesh too much about a smaller DI V8; let's not make it smaller than a 5-liter though

Okay, not smaller than a 4.9L (i.e. 302 ci). 5.7L sounds plenty good to me. LT-1, LT-1, LS1, LS6; shoot; can't go wrong with that one

I am as well, however I believe GM pays attention to us (we are a huge targeted audience for free(GM should be back flipping over us)) and for this reason I will continue to both post an start threads.

Any comments Number 3?

That is my thinking and exactly why I'm doing the same. Hey - there's nothing wrong with discussion on sharing of thoughts

Amen to that! And I'll add that a DI 4.9L with a handling package would work just fine for me. LOL, I post alot about the "Z" but a lot has changed since I was a younger man buying my Z-28 in 1984...like the high price of the cars...I'll be lucky to eventually get a 1SS, add a CAI, an exhaust swap, and add Pedders suspension parts.

...unless GM gives me a cheaper 1LE option. Sorry, I just had to say it again!

I only tire from the posts when the people who post the most don't even own a Camaro yet...much less actaully want/buy a Z/28!

I have my car, supercharger and a few other goodies...there is little if any chance I could buy a Z/28...there is little chance most on this site who have a Camaro already would/could trade it/up for a Z/28.

I guess my point is...while there is a lot of talk here about the Z/28, I honestly wonder how many people here, on Camaro5, would actually buy one, could afford one, or would trade their current Camaro for one? Not many I don't think...it's like asking a kid what do you want in your chocolate...you're going to get answers, but not alot of eaters!

I hope it does eventually come out...I think heritage wise it's a good move. But, stick to the heritage of the Z/28 and make it an all around track type car. The SS is, was and always will be the higher hp of the two...the fastest in a straight line as well.

My opinion...bash away!

I selected all of the poll options because I do feel that there are plenty of threads for this sort of discussion and new ones should stop but I feel that they are useful for expressing Camaro5's collective interest in a particular product. I also feel that the idea of a Z28 is so specific that Z[insert performance badge] may be a better description when considering the high-performance history of the Camaro ZL1 as well as the race-inspired Z28.

This site has thousands of threads. If you don't like Z28 discussions, talk about something else. If you do want to talk about the Z28, use the search because there is likely an existing thread to discuss your thoughts. If you don't know what a Z28 is, please go away.
