No really? Thanks captan obvious...

We know why they are there... We are commenting on why the fender flares have to look like CHEAP AFTERMARKET parts. Not the Camaro Z/28s aerodynamics...

The sound track for the 3rd video sounded kind of like porn music, which works because it was porn, car porn

The small fender flares are to keep the front 305s from sticking out past the fender lips. The rear fender lips are there because it would look stupid if they just put them on the front.

I think people feel add on fender flares look cheap and wonder why they just didn't make new front fenders and rear Quarter panels for the Z/28.
The quick and simple reason is cost... New front fenders and rear quarters would require extensive retooling.

the question is whats the cost of the car and are they goimg to over price it and then not understand why it don't sell. Thats just what they have done with the zl1. not worth the cost. If you look around there are tons of zl1's, used for sell. either buyers got in to deep and could not aford them or the car did not add up to all it was made out to be. pricing these cars to high is just what the problem is today. you want to make money make them affordable.

All of the Chevy V8's made right now are small blocks. They all have essentially identical external dimensions as well as the same bore spacing as the original small block.

Just because people that bought them got in over their heads on the loans does not mean the ZL1 isn't worth the money...
Have you read Mr Wyndham's interview with the Z/28's chief engineer?

I am absolutely in love with the rims. I think they are the best looking factory rims I have seen along with the new CTS-V rims. I hope a third party picks up on these and manufactures them, they would look good on the green machine.

no thanks i'll stick to my zl1. that front splitter does look slapped on to me. its an SS with a ground kit on the outside. i think the zl1 hood and front end is way more aggresive. we will see what 14 zl1 looks like. they should just make our current lights LED, change all the chrome to black. than the car will be perfect.

The ZL1 is gorgeous, I would rather just have the SS with the brakes pakage and the ls7 as an option, I'm sure the the bolt-ons of the Z28 would be way cheaper than factory sticker price.

The 2014 ZL1 looks the exact same from the front...

The lips and skirts probably are carbon fiber. GM has variations of exposed and painted versions out there.. My 427 vert has grey painted fiber pieces on it

LS7 is still a small block. I believe LS motors still use the 4.40" bore spacing which qualifies them as a GM small block.

No one said they were for everyone. If you can't afford a ZL1 or a Z28, than enjoy your SS, it's a really nice car.

....this is one slick ride, I really dig it....alot....the GM promo is way cool. Silence can sometimes say volumes, and a picture speaks a thousand words they say. There is a whole lexicon of superlatives for the Z/28. I am eagerly waiting for more info on it.

So who's going to try and stick those 'cheap-looking' fender flares on their own Camaro?

This car is growing on me... the worst part of it i thought was the restyled back in.. but the more i see it the more i'm starting to like it. However I still would not trade in my 2013 ZL1 for it. If only I hit the lotto jack pot.. I'd go out and buy it for sure to add to my collection.
