Considering the ZL1 was already better than any mustang, this just blew them completely out of the water.

Not to mention, it doesn't look all feminine like the Mustangs do.

Toss a Z/28 badge on it and suddenly everyone loves it.

I'll say what I said before - I'm not a fan of the hood vent. I know why it's there now - but I still wish they executed it better. I've liked the front fascia treatment all along, the taillights look better with a professional pic and not what we saw on a SD broadcast (proper lighting and all that).

Throwback to 1969 - that's what they are aiming for and I will agree, they hit that mark. The car is honestly a race car you can drive on the street. Buy on saturday, race on sunday.

They've done good in the mechanics department. The car just needs a different hood and it would be perfect. I'm glad they brought back the Z/28 - I'm on the fence about the fact that the car still weighs in @ 3900lbs (the ZL1 is 4100 - 300 = 3900lbs).

Still a pig - but the LS7 will help with that a bit. Still. If GM plans to keep the Camaro Z/28 moniker alive through to the alpha platform, I think that I will be choosing that route. We'll have to see...

This is fact.

Would have been nice if they had at least left the stereo intact (two speakers + radio).

The original Z/28 (1969) had only two speakers and a radio.

I might try and score a set of those Recaro seats for my car, they look comfy... I like the tail lights... The rest of the body changes? Not doing anything for me, I don't feel the urge to run out and buy one, like when I originally saw the concept 5th gen and I knew that I would own one.

Ls7? Great. How much is that gonna cost? Interested to see pricing for the Z/28, but not interested in buying. I'll be holding onto my 2010 at least until the 6th gen comes out; fingers crossed they can pull off something amazing like they did with the original introduction of the 5th gen.

I AM however interested to get my hands on that air intake though to play with. I wonder if that's a Z/28 only thing, or perhaps available on the SS also.
