...Car-gasm...

Hey, a while ago, back when we were only getting spy shots of the red Z28 test mule, Fbodfather said something along the lines of "...ask me about this car later..." or something like that. Anyone else remember? Is it "later" enough yet? Can we ask him what special, secret info he had for us now?

Jan 2012?? I was hoping for middle of this year. Guess it makes it easier for me to hold out for the 2014 Z/28 on the alpha platform.

1/1/2012 seems a little late to the 2012 model year party. I guess that also explains why Ford didn't update the 2012 GT500 much since it will be close to the Mustangs 2013 model year.

Production dosent begin for another year!
what is the delay?????
They have the body, they have the engine, just assemble it!!
Seems like GMs late to the party on this one, sure a base 5.0 GT will be able to best the Z28 with a drop in K&N filter by then and be a full $20k less.................

That's kind of what I was thinking.

I'm also wondering about the tires (330s and 285s). I may have missed this in another thread, but are they going to widen the car? I have 315s on the back, and anything wider would stick out.

I know there are still things I'm going to do right from the start, but I'm still holding out for it being an option

No comment. Maybe I can buy one of those trailers we've seen hitched to the back of earlier models, because I might have to live out of one of those. I wonder if a slider is an option...

I hope we can get some more pics' soon. Too bad we couldn't get anything right now. I hope the interior doesn't get too bright, and that anniversary model sounds pretty sweet looking!

PICS' PLEASE

I was thinking 315s at the most on the rear, with 305s being likely. I certainly won't complain with 335s

Based on those tire widths, if that isn't a typo, I'm suspecting the Z28 will either have wider body panels or a mini-tub on the rear. Hoping for the wider panels ala Z06.
