Oh boy. Does that mean I can get rid of my badges and get Z28 badges? Retro ones of course...lol

Now excuse me while the Camaro vets rip this idea to pieces lol

ZL1 = ZR1
Z28 = Z06
1LE = Grand Sport
SS = Base Vette

Edit: Why was this moved out of the Z/28 forum to the SS/LS/LT forum?

That's what I've been saying all along. But maybe they will be nice enough to at least make the engine a 302ci next Gen motor, then it will carry over some history to the new tech.

What's all this bullshit about Z28 being a "track star" or something "truly special". The Z28 name has just indicated that the car's a performance model since the early 70s.

My IROC has a Z28 badges all over the place, and it's no stripped down track car.

Because it was something "truly special".


"What's important to remember about the Z/28 is how unique its mission was. While the rest of the Camaro lineup was designed and built around standard street car parameters (a trait Car and Driver referred to as "a polished lack of character"), the Z/28 was produced to homologate a race car package; the parts selected fell within higher specifications not usually used by Detroit carmakers. By doing so, Chevrolet, unwittingly or not, came close to building one of the best American sports sedans ever made. "With the Z/28," Car and Driver observed, "Chevy is on the way toward making the gutsy stormer the Camaro should have been in the first place."

Don't forget to put the 302 emblem on the cowl hood and have an 8000 rpm red line. Ya know to keep some history.

The original Z/28 was build for Trans Am racing which is why is had the 302 engine. So yes, the Z/28 was a track star, no bullshit.
