How is this different from the ' 2011 SLP Camaro ZL1' or any other SS with a supercharger and badges thrown on it?

SLP has the trademark rights to ZL as of right now, so they can build what ever they want and slap that name on it.

GM/Chevrolet have never sold off the Z-28 name to anyone, thus it's a trademark infringement. Even though it's on a Chevrolet Camaro.

It's a dealer badged z28.. I don't see any big deal with a dealer doing that.. dealers customize cars all the time... Is it a licensed official z28 from GM ? No of course not and as long as they don't try and sell it as such people need to relax about it...LOL

WHAT I do question is 104 hp from a CAI and exhaust... do they have any dyno slips to prove it or is it that an estimate from doing mods and a tune

They are selling a customized car, I dont see the big deal or outrage about it.. Its a dealer version.. not licensed.. not sure its illegal to do that.. ?

I'm hoping fbodfather reads this thread...... GM's attorneys would probably like to speak to this dealership. In person. With cease and decist court orders in hand.

Since "Z28" is a registered trademark of GM and Chevrolet, it is illegal for anyone to make a profit by selling anything labeled, advertised, or passed on as such whether expressed or implied as a "Z28" if it is not a Z28 as made by GM.

The same exact laws apply here as someone pirating music, and then selling it to make a profit.

If this dealer makes a profit larger than what would reasonably be expected by selling this SS as if it were an SS and nothing more or different, that is illegal.
