BTW, although the Z28-specific Section only shows posts over the last year or so, this Section formerly included a multitude of posts that are now buried in the ZL1-specific Section. My point is, much of this debate has raged since the early days of camaro5...and that, folks, is a long-long time ago...

Again, we will all strive to be inclusive, respectful, and patient...

Sometimes, "dreams" DO come true.

Gramps, just because "active participation" isn't present DOESN'T mean this Section is "unseen"...

Not to continue on with this, but it's so common for people to say things and forget about it, but...in all fairness, your appology for directing that less than off color phrase towards him would be just....and appreciated.

I understand the business aspect as well and the risks involved with producing cars with respect to cost and competition and placement in a class of vehicle. Maybe I just caught a couple of you on a bad day but really...me stating what I think a Z28 should be no different than you telling me the same. I might disagree with you but I'm not going to treat you like your are an idiot...so who was being un-civil? Thanks by the way to htron for the apology... no harm no foul. I have noticed that a lot of the group here on the Z28 forum have held out on buying a Gen 5 Camaro waiting for the Z28. That does say something for your dedication for the name plate and I respect that.
Thanks, I believe Lowdown has it right, we're most influenced by the concept over the name, however I'd love a new Z28/RS.

Here's the deal: we ALL have seen vehicles badged variously.

Some have "meaning".

Some immediately conjure up a vivid "picture".

Some are "whatever!"

And some are sooooooooo appropriate that you immediately KNOW just what to expect!

It's called "building a BRAND".

427 Cobra!

L-88 Corvette!

Custom Sport Deluxe Super-Duper! Really?!

ZEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE / TWENTY EIGHT.................

Got the picture?

As I said some time back, they can leave the damn emblems OFF...weight...aero...

I'm gonna put my own expression, in small letters, on the rear spoiler...

LAP DANCER
