All great points BUT no pricing available yet. So those who want one should be getting on their dealers' lists...NOW.

Maybe we should think of this as a street-legal COPO...and we know what happened, initially, to those prices...don't we?

BTW, I'm "on the list"...

The amount of crying you have been doing over this car is insane.
Piss off. I can afford it rather easily. Question is will I pay 60+k for an auto? Answer no. Auto is not an investment. When I'm older ill be able to buy 3 or 4 of these things even at collectors pricing. I have my priorities straight. And that's to make money now spend it later.

I always thought they could drop any optional engine into whatever model and still, each model would be unique...But inter-changeable engine options are just not the way they efficiently build cars these days...The model dictates the engine, and that's the only option...

It's not a question of wanting it. It's a function of affording it.
Just because somebody wants something doesn't mean they have the means to attain it.

Ford now has a tall order to come up with something that will match the Z/28.

For them to just put in the 427 in an SS with the available 1LE option was not the direction they wanted to go. And it's not just the Ceramic brakes, it's the other 200 changes they made to make it the Z/28.
I don't think Ford has to do anything. They have so many versions out there, it's ridiculous. Then they have a long history just as long as Chevrolet. We are the ones playing catch up. We just got a Supercharged model with a factory mind you. GM doesn't offer any packages to increase the HP unlike Ford. GM is headed in the right direction so I'll continue to stay along for the ride...

You don't have to jump to a LS7 right away. Put a nice cam in the LS3 and the power output should be close to a stock LS7. If something goes wrong and you blow up the LS3, then you can spent the money for a LS7.
