Let's not forget that the original 350cid SBC was also first showcased in the '67 SS Camaro a full year before it showed up in the Vette.

You are correct, I thought it went to the Vette in '68, but a quick check of specs showed otherwise.

I would be happy with the new DI engine in the Z28 if it was an HO version. I'd still prefer the LS7 it just fits the Z28 image perfectly.

...I'm with ya there Chance..., addendum: 2013 might not be the year of the Z because of yet to be released SS/1LE slated for same, but it may be the year we have to petition Mr. Reuss a bit harder, and get it in 2014.

Z28 for 6th gen. Or they'd have done it already. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Yes if we want it we can't let up. Kinda like my son wanting a hot wheel, I just want a bigger one we both can ride in.
