A Z/28 would be cool, but the ZL1 is the king of the hill.
Have all of you guys owned a Z/28 before, and want to re-live the past?
Much better way to ask.

You could take some time to look through the different threads in this section and find the answer...
I'll simply say that what we want is what the Z28 was originally built to be, a track (not dragging) ready street car. It's not so much the name it's what it stand for...hence the name.

Obviously you don't get it, and that's OK! You're quite free to let us wallow in whatever we're wallowing in, nobody is holding a gun to your head and forcing you to read this forum/threads. Since you don't get it and I'm tired of explaining it to the thousands of non-believers that have come here......See Ya!!

Yes be nice.....er.........errrrrrr

He just doesn't understand your and others passion for the venerable Z28. I don't personally feel the same as you but you do know that I respect your passion for this great and historic car. And I wouldn't kick one out of my garage for eating crackers

Hopefully there will be another to capture and fuel the passion for those that haven't had the joyous experience.

But I was being nice, I simply stated that he didn't understand and that was OK, I don't go baiting in the SS and ZL1 forums and I would appreciate the same courtesy here.

For those interested in the implications of losing weight, vehicle-wise, there's a great read in the new June '12 issue of Automobile Magazine outlining the measures taken with the Benz 550SL. Torsional Rigidity up 20%, 165 added lb. of safety engineering, 275 lb. NET LOSS in Curb Weight while growing in size and adding a twin-turbo V8...

Answer? Only 8% of the structure is STEEL, and that is largely HSS in the windshield frame and its support system.

Weight can disappear, but it won't leave with an inexpensive result.

I gotta give you guys this.
You're hardcore about a Z/28.
Hopefully they make you one, and you can stop dreaming.
I'd never wandered int the Z/28 area before, and was just asking what all the fuss was about whan the car doesn't exist.
I'll leave you to yourselves.
I really do hope they make you one.

And I think we will see some of that same kind of engineering on the 6th gen. Camaro based on what we've seen so far with the Cadillac ATS.

Keep in mind the current Zeta architecture was developed (starting in '99) for introduction in 2006 and was a flexible platform able to be built in varying wheelbases and overall lengths. The Gen-5 Camaro version was about the smallest version built. So its emphasis, and therefore structure, was intended for generally larger versions than the Camaro...up to 118" WB (6" more than Camaro).

Going to the new-Gen smaller Alpha platform will, all by itself, save some weight BEFORE implementing "new age" weight-conscious measures I'm sure we'll see more of with CAFE '16 ever-present. As suggested by the Caddie ATS data, V6 Camaro models around 3,400 lbs. sound likely...and very encouraging.

There's no doubt we will have a 5th gen Z/28, when is the big question.

A road show that I did lights and sound for used Dream Weaver for it's theme, between rehersals and all of the shows where I heard it, if I never hear it again it will be too soon!
