Maybe the dealer mentioned 85 because he was including a "mark up". It will be the latest ride and some people will be paying a premium to have it. I remember, when the Camaro's first came out, some dealers had ridiculous mark ups.

Hopefully people will avoid those dealers.

I can't wait for it to be really tested and available for purchase. This car is going to floor so many people!!!!

You seem to be really sending the same message that the ZL1 is really going to surprise a lot of people, especially since the fest. Did a little birdie happen to tell you something?

Seeing it in person is a different experience.

Nope. But then if they did, which they didn't, I wouldn't tell you anyways. j.k.

And Yes. It was the car equivalent of seeing Niagara Falls for the first time in your life...even though pictures of it are everywhere....

I pre-judge this car based on the confidence the team has for it whenever they discuss what's already known. If these people have confidence in what they're building (and you KNOW they've tested against the best to date), then that's good enough for me.

With a wink and a smile, many of them say the same sorts of things I'm saying: "It's going to surprise a lot of people", etc...I'm really no more than a parrot in this respect.

Make no mistake....all it takes is a read through the press release and a look at the car....everything that is different between it and an SS has been completely ENGINEERED to go FAST. There was no other goal...no compromises (other than cost).

So...am I overzealous in thinking it'll blow the doors off its competitors and hardly break a sweat?....I don't think so....

I was one of those. The sticker price on the car was basically $40k and they wanted a "just because" markup of $5000. But they gave me $13500 for my tahoe plus $2000 GM LOYALTY cash. So it worked out. I guess

Supposedly it has Performance Traction Management with Launch Control built in.......the only vehicle that has used this system is the ZR1 Corvette. I think that speaks for itself. .....

Yes... Yes it does.


This car is so very in line with exactly what I've always wanted it's scary.
