Considering there is a lot of GM employee's that visit this forum, I think combining or removing the Z28 section is sign of giving in, giving up hope, and or compromising. It should be left alone IMO to not give that impression...

Even if a 5th gen Z28 seems to be a false sense of hope at this stage. There is still 2 1/2 years before the 6th gen will be released, I'd say the Z28 still has a chance.

Like this Idea.

A 1LE sub-section needs to be a sub-section within the SS forums since 1LE is an SS option, it is not a seperate model.

As for what to do with the Z28 section ... I vote that it be kept as its own separate thing until we know there won't be a 5th gen Zedder. I'll admit the prospects look slim at the moment, but the Z28 fans here are nothing if not hopeful, lol.
I'm on board with you DG, 1LE and Z/28 are two seperate animals. Even more so after the announcement.

And since the real Z/28 heritage lives only in the first gen. Camaros (since you said that didn't apply to other gens) there should not be a Z/28 forum?? Can I ask why you are even on this site? Wouldn't you be more comfortable on the official GM after announcement sites? Just wondering since you seem to be so full of negativity for this site in general and this forum in particular.

No, you misunderstood me. I am not a fanboy and I am not dissing the Z28 section. I like it. But it was getting kind of stale lately. Usually on other forums there are future topics. This is where the Z28 should be IMO.

The 1LE while being an SS option is not a Camaro for the masses. Much like the Boss 302 is not a Mustang for the average pony lover. So I think it deserves its own section.

Last time I posted that I was put on notice. Hopefully it's Okay this time.

So OP, what are the moderators thoughts? New 1LE section? Or...

Separate V6 and SS discussion sections here would also reduce some of the clashing you see on the main Camaro discussion forum. Although sometimes it is entertaining.

Almost as much fun as the ZL1 vs GT500 ones.

Welllll......1LE is supossedly an option to the SS, not a distinct model. Z/28 couldn't be confused with anything else and stands alone. Let's seperate them topically I suggest. But since I have come down from my recent tirade <> I appreciate the fact GM is moving is a direction forward, although not as fast or boldly as I would have liked. Let's pick up the pace and take the initiative Chevy...times running out.

I'm just a little disappointed to read that some people appear to already be "picking a side"...Folks - I'd like to remind us that we are a CAMARO FAMILY. There is no right/wrong in opinion, and there should be no feelings hurt over new models or lack thereof.

That all said..........

No merge.

I feel the point about the 1LE not being its own trim level is a compelling one.

Thanks for everyone's input!
