The right suspension parts work wonders!

And the 1LE fits in there somewhere. LOL


GM has already designated the ZL1 as the then and now Ultimate Camaro.

Also from a marketing standpoint the price gap is between the 1LE $40K and the ZL1 $55K. That is the gap to fill.

...ok, we'll just leave it at that...we want a Z/28....in a Gen5 form, with a LS7...the SS VS Z/28 argument had been played out so many times we need a taxidermist to re-do the dead horse.

Nothing official numbers wise. The only thing we have heard is that it will pull 1G in corners..... Impressive for a "stock" Camaro but they CAN do better. That is where us Z/28 faithful hope we are heading.

Back in my day everyone in my town wanted an SS of some sort if they were chevy nuts.

I ran Mopars back then so I didn't really care for any of them. I've since then found a love for Many of them.
