I agree. With only three or four functioning brain cells left after my partying days many years ago, old age diminishes coherent thought quickly!!

Looks like a great stride forward, eliminating obstacles with the associated red tape will move along product development for sure. Good show GM....!

Last I heard it's been pushed back until after the face lifted Camaro drops so don't expect anything until AT LEAST 2014. Still hearing rumors of a big displacement LS motor....

Face lift? You mean the 6th gen or will the 5th get some exterior changes?

The 5th is said to get a new front and rear fascia. I'm sure (if they know what's good for them) nothing too bold. I do hope they move those stinking ugly designed back up lights to the rear diffuser or to integrate them with the taillights.

We figure 2014.

Thanks for the input.

That's interesting. Would be a great time to roll out a new Z/28.

Edit: Is that model year '14 or the year 2014?

Something akin to the Fesler-Moss tail lights would be just fine...

Sounds like it may be possible but the "every six months" statement would put a new announcement in September.

Possible Z/28 announced next month?

The 1LE was announced some time in March wasn't it?

True, forgot about the Dusk.

If that's true I hope we see the design while it's still possible to order a 2013. I just don't see what needs improving exterior wise. What would be cool is if they coordinated the facelift with the new V-8s.
