Z28 ???

Why is there so many that are just dying for a Z28 badge. Is it just a badge? Come on, really. Any performance model that comes out some feel that it should be a "Z28". Take what ever you can afford or want that GM offers or buy badges and put it on. If its a dead model then it's dead. If Gm brings it back then they bring it back. No body asks for a Berlinetta. Or the come back of the 4 cylinder Camaro. If they offer a ZL1 or a 1LE or a COPO or 2SS, 1SS, LS, LT, optional RS package. All kinds of interior and exterior options. Then buy what you like and make it yours. STOP whining! And for those crying for AWD >>> if they ever build it then buy it as for now it's a RWD performance/ muscle car. If you have trouble driving it in bad weather park it or sell it. If your not happy with yours sell it, change it, rebuild it. If you don't like what they have then don't buy or wait till the do. Be thankful for what we have. Ask questions about your car or how too's even give praise and thanks. Show it off, drive it enjoy it, MOD the hell out of it or leave it original. BUT PLEASE STOP the Whining! Write GM if you want a different model. I'm happy with mine. I drive mine. I show it off. I mod it. I'll keep it. Thanks for listening.

IMHO the 1LE will turn into the Z/28

Well if you posted in the correct section it wouldn't have gotten moved. Also, you have this whole rant about people whining and what not, but isn't your post just you whining about other people whining? Seems like a vicious cycle to me. A cycle that can only be stopped by us (collectively). If you don't like someone's post or thread just move on. You have the power to ignore them. We all do. Heck, ignore my post if you want.

Well...Z28 = Z28 section, no?

The people you're addressing will most likely see it in here.

I guess there should be a whine and complaint section then I could have posted it there. All others that complain instead of being positive could go there to commiserate. I enjoy the car and this site just tired of the negative aspects that I too got drug into it. I'm excited to hear of new models no matter the badge.

Well they could go in the off topic section. Or rather if you want to whine about the website there is already a section for that. Let me know if you need any more help figuring out what section threads should go in.

If you don't want to hear "whining" about no Z/28, then don't friggin click on the Z/28 section of the forum! If you're happy with your SS, then I'm happy for you, but there are many who want a Z/28 and one that is worthy of the name. I find it interesting that most all of the complaints about people wanting a Z/28 usually come from SS owners.......hmmmm.

Just because we disagree with the OP's opinion doesn't mean we get to be rude. Play nice.

OK that was intensely annoying!

Actually I don't see much in the Z28 threads that I would consider whining. What I see is constructive debate on what the Z28 should and WILL be. Maybe you could spend some time perusing the highly patronized threads to see what we're about.
I have to point out in your post where it says wait until they build what one wants. That is precisely what we're doing. And along the way we are stating what a Z28 should be. We know that our threads are being watched by those that can make a difference.

I don't see a whole lot of whining about a Z28. Lots of asking, lots of wishing, lots of armchair engineering. But not much whining. And to my knowledge none of us simply want a badge. If we did, we could by some old ones, slap them on a car and call it a day. But then its not really a Z28, is it? And neither is a modified SS, or LT, or LS, or ZL1. We want GM to make a Z28 that honours the tradition of the name. If you don't care, fine. You don't have to. Keep on enjoying your car like tens of thousands of other 5th gen owners, its a great car. But for some of us, the best Camaro is one that hasn't been built yet. Maybe it will come, maybe it won't. But until we hear one way or the other, we'll just keep on dreaming.

The z28 is a LEGEND among cars. Im a little confused as to why you seem to be yelling at and mocking anybody who wants to bring it back. If you dont want one, or dont care, then thats fine. but theres no reason to say all that crap about ppl who actually do.

and HEY! Theres nothing wrong with the Berlinetta! Lay off bro!
