Please GM, keep tweaking those suspensions, drive train and braking system parts.

Oh yeah, solve that clutch cliche, you know we are going to drive it like we stole it.

ABM was only discontinued on the camaros. There are other ABM vehicles that GM offers (HHR and Colorado). The paint is still used for new vehicles therefore its not just leftover paint.

This didn't bother me at first, but the more I look at the dual-tip exhaust on these Z28 spy shots, the more I don't like it. Love this look on the Pontiac G8, seems fitting. But if I were to purchase a Z28 when it comes out, I'd like it with single tip dual exhaust, like on the current run of Camaros. Anyone else feeling this?

It could have 1 or 8 tail pipes in the back as long as it kills the updated 2012 GT500.

Also, there is a thread in the general forum where fbodfather says that ABM is discountinued and will not be back anytime soon. It did not sell very well.

If you look at the 2 tips, one looks darker than the other on each side. My guess is the dual tips are functional and are dual mode like the vettes.

That would be a Firebird inspired front, not a Z28. Either way, not a fan.

Why is there splines in the front hub/wheel? never saw that in a front end before unless it's 4wd.

They are CCW SP550s. They are a one-piece forged aluminum wheel. Very light, and pretty strong. The company that makes them is CCW and they are very reputable and have some of the best customer service I have ever experienced.

I know about these wheels because I have some very similar SP600s on my CTS-V. I absolutely love the wheels.

But the bottom line, I would bet lots 'o money that GM will not use these wheels (from a fairly small aftermarket wheel company like CCW) on the production Z/28, which is a shame. If I ever get a Z/28, I will just pay the $700 per wheel and get these anyway.

See pic below (found on the CCW website):

They might, if the Z28 were a limited production run. But with GM in the financial shape it's in right now, smart money says they'll try to sell as many as they can.
