When you reply to someones post, there should be a column of smilies to the right. At the bottom of those there is a blue hyperlink that says [more]. If you click that, you can see all of them. Just copy the link that says it will post the smiley and there ya go!

But if you're just replying in that little box below the thread, you'll have to click 'Advanced' to get to the screen Camarochick's talking about.

I take your use of "affordable V-8" to mean the base V-8, correct me if I'm wrong. While I absolutely want to see a new Z/28, I also don't want it to be the "watered down" base V-8! What I really wanted to see (and think is highly unlikely) was a base V-8 around 350 HP, then two other V-8s at 430ish HP and 475+ HP. I don't mind whether SS or Z/28 is the top dog, but I surely want the Z/28 version to have great suspension/handling characteristics to go along with whatever engine they use (more like the 1st gen Z/28s), I don't want every darn base V-8 pumped off the assembly line with a worthless Z/28 emblem on it, Z/28 should mean way more than "base V-8".

heres a simple test:

how many of you know EXACTLY where the Z28 is from - and those of you that "know", state your knowledge here as to what the Z28 moniker means.

Are you asking what the Z and 28 mean in the name? or are you asking if we know what the original car was?

I don't know of any particular meaning behind the alpha-neumeric code, unlike with say the Olds 4-4-2. What I do know is that Z28 was the regular production order that you had to ask for to get the street version of the trans am series race car. It had a 302 cu (5L) small block V8 that was rev happy. The cars also came with a very good suspension setup as well, making them some of the best handling cars of the day.

the title "Z28" is actually an RPO code.

RPO Z28:

Z28 Special Performance Package; includes 302cid V-8 engine, closed positive ventilation, dual exhaust with deep tone mufflers, special front and rear suspension, heavy-duty radiator and temperature controlled fan, quick ratio steering, 15x6-inch wheels, 7.35x15 nylon red stripe tires, 3.73:1 ratio axle and special paint stripes on hood and rear deck (requires 4-speed close ratio transmission, power brakes, front disc brakes or HD front disc brakes with metallic rear brakes; positraction recommended; Sport Coupe V-8 only) 602 358.10

my dad had a 1969 Z28 from 1969-1970 (had to sell it) - hugger orange with white stripes and a 4spd manual. he loved that car and always hated that he had to give it up.

what sucks is that the "Z28" has stopped meaning anything and is just a badge on the car now to mean "v8". like GT is to mustangs...

Well...with the lack of a books worth of V8 choices nowadays...Z28 does still mean something. And you said it; V8. But where it differs from GT, imho...is that Z28 has some honor. As opposed to every car company using some form of 'GT' to denote performace. Z28 is unmistakable.


It means 'move'.

The Z/28 name only "has some honor" if they put a package in the car worthy of that honor. How would you feel about a new Camaro with 325 HP and a base car suspension being called Z/28? Sorry, that wouldn't cut it, it needs to be a fairly high HP engine with the complete suspension package (and not necessarily the top dog), etc. to be worthy of the Z/28 name.
