As Chevrolet monitors C5 forums, they must recognize the tremendous marketing opportunity the Z28 name plate has to the public, not just us crazy Camaro people, but to the United States of America!! The 5th gen rebirth plus the execution of the 1LE, ZL1 and COPO models tells me Chevy gets it - almost like one of us! (Note the design details of the ZL1 exhaust system We can dream \ wish \ drool \ pray for a killer Z28 model or how Chevrolet may just throw some badges and bolt-on's onto a 6 cylinder Camaro, but I'm not going to sit here and listen to you bad mouth the United States of America!! (Sorry, Animal House flashback...) All kidding aside, I am confident the current DNA of Chevrolet will resurrect the Z28 as a proud member of the Camaro lineage when the design and timing is right! Make us proud Chevrolet - I'll take one if your execution is great!!

The Z28 is probably going to take the 1SS place. After all, that's how it should have been in the first place. Z28s have always been the stripped versions of an SS. No features, no leather, and the basic sound system. I would have bought that if it was available. Problem is price wise, you can find a used loaded 2SS for the price of a new V6. Did it. I don't think I will ever buy another Camaro as this one has changed my mind on them. I love the car, but I am having to plan on how I'm going to fix the HORRIBLE exterior quality.

So does this mean that they only own the rights to the Z28 nameplate and not the Z/28 which I prefer?

The slash character (/) would have to be specifically enumerated in a second Application filing as a variation of the original Z28.

It is my understanding that the ZL1 was supposed to be named the Z28, but GM found that their rights to the name had expired.

Does not surprise me that GM didn't have it protected. I remember when I saw my first Eclipse GSX. My Buick was madder than hell that the GS nameplate was on a Mitsu. When the GSX nameplate was on one, well, it took some time to calm it down

Well, respectfully, truth be told, the Z/28 was to participate in SCCA competition, not to produce a stripped down SS

I didn't read all 5 pages of this thread, but this is the answer. You can search the marks and see that it was registered in 2009 as well as other times. This is just a renewal, would be my take.

Doesn't mean there won't be a Z28, but wouldn't think it means there will be one, either.

And the LS7 engine option couldn't possibly be connected to the trademark....

Honestly they're probably just protecting the name. Wouldn't wanna see some Toyota Celica Z28 running around. But here's so hoping they remake it as well!
