Well since GM is playing the "appealing to collectors only game" it looks like GM has driven me to buying a mustang.

I agree Ryan, first I was happy when fbod posted it would be around 40k, but one Camaro 5 member got invited to show and was told it would be more, guess I have to change my plans, hope he was lying

But we will have to wait till the official announcement

I wouldn't say that they're playing that kinda game, they're just adding in stuff into the Z/28 to make it a monster on the track. Plus they mentioned that this car is primarily meant for the track, not on the road. The 1LE sounds more line what folks would want as an everyday driving type of Z/28, which everyone clamored to when the 1LE was revealed as a concept car back in SEMA of 2011. The Z/28 is in the same line as the COPOs, for performance use. It is a shame that they car is not gonna come in at ZL1 pricing, but for what you are getting in the suspension, chassis, braking, engine, seating, plus it being 300lbs. lighter than the ZL1, it all comes down to how much do we think that we can put into our own Camaros to get that kind of performance.

I just listened to a podcast on CamaroZ28.com where they interviewed the folks from the Chevy Camaro production team at the New YorK Auto Show during the refresh and Z/28 reveal. The episode is linked below and is a real neat thing to listen to in regards to the new Z/28. It's a little over 40min long, but worth the listen. Cheers!

There really is no way this car was going to come in at 40k. A fully loaded 1le is 44k for a 2ss and a 1ss at 40k. Maybe a base z at 56k and loaded with ac at 60k and a possible gg tax at 1300. Zl1 start at 56k and look at all the equipment on that.

I'm inclined to agree, but after thinking about it, I can't think of a series where the Z/28 would fit that there is not currently a highly modified SS in the top tier pushing the limit of the rule book, so I think it's likely many of the teams are just going to stick with something proven untill the next gen comes out. I do think a few are going to be raced, but more are going to be stored away by collectors and very few are going to be driven on the street.

Guess I'm just under the impression if your going to make a Camaro street legal, make it reasonably priced. I think it's going to have a very hard time selling to anybody other than rich purists and thinking that they included a back seat just drives that idea home even more. Other than that with pricing higher than the ZL1, their putting a Camaro in the Corvette market.

I can almost guarentee from what I have read less R&D went into the Z/28 than the ZL1 and probably everything on the Z/28 save the wheels, motor and brakes costs less to produce than the ZL1.

BTW getting past my disgruntled Z/28 rant, the mustang part of my last post was just throwing a little April Fool's out there. If I can't end up with a Z/28 I may have to settle for a nice used C6 Z06. I'm getting that LS7 one way or another. It just won't be lining GM's pocketbook directly.

The way that I do it is that I upload my photos onto a my photobucket account and copy the link that is provided by photobucket for that particular picture and then just paste it onto to here. You have to create an account at www.photobucket.com and vuala.

EVENT: CAMARO5 EP/LC Gathering, Saturday, April 13th, 2013



Caffeine & Octane/Farley's Pub and Grill
El Paso, TX to Las Cruces, NM
Saturday, April 13th, 2013
9AM- 5PM


Good morning, afternoon, evening, or whenever time it is that you are checking out the most awesome Camaro thread in the El Paso/Las Cruces area, . Hope that everyone's month has been turning out well so far.

Next Saturday, April 13th, we have a big day planned for everyone and anyone who wishes to join. As many of you may remember, a few of us attended the El Paso Caffeine & Octane gathering off of Sundland Drive and Mesa from 9AM-11AM. This event is a cars and coffee sort of deal where all auto makes and models come out and talk shop such as Shelby Mustangs, 442s, Corvettes, and Lamborghinis, while grabbing coffee during the morning. It is such a great site to see and had such a grand time the entire morning, aside from the cold wind, that we are going to be attending this event again. Of course though, we are also going to be having our monthly Camaro Gathering at Farley's in Las Cruces that afternoon, because why would we wanna ruin a good thing, right? So, with that, once we are done with Caffeine & Octane at 11AM we will take photo ops at a location between El Paso and Las Cruces, which should take no more than an hour and cruise to the LC taking Hwy 28 and have lunch at Farley's on the patio at 2PM. Parking will be saved like usual, but we must make it very apparent to everyone that is going to be joining to let us know if you are joining for lunch to save parking. Last time we had a few spaces that were empty and we do not wish to take lots that Farley's can use for other customers. Once we are done with lunch we will cruise to Caliche's on Valley Dr. in LC for desert. The day should end around 5/6PM. So who is in?

Itinerary: (NOTE: Times subject to change)
08:00am - Meet at Pic Quick off of University Ave. & I-25 (This is for the folks meeting up in Las Cruces)
08:30am - Leave for El Paso
09:30am - Arrive at Caffeine & Octane at Starbucks on corner of Sunland Park and Mesa St.
11:00am - Leave for photo op
02:00pm - Arrive at Farley's Pub & Grill on Foothils Dr.
04:00pm - Leave for Caliche's on Valley Dr.

I'll be there. At least for lunch for sure. Depending if my rim gets here next week like its supposed to, might be able to cruise down to EP and back. I'll have to skip out on Caliche's this time :/ as I have a business obligation at 4.

Question for the group. I was thinking about upgrading to a 1LT camaro, because I wasn't sure what to do about the vette. My thinking has changed though. I'm thinking the 2015 corvette might be available for order around Aug of 2014. Maybe I could order it then. I'm thinking by that time all this allocation crap will be over with for the new corvette. I'm thinking it will be a mess for the 2014 corvette.

So my question for the group is this. Do you think my thinking on this is correct? I plan on ordering a 2LT coupe corvette. I plan on ordering magnetic ride suspension, variable exhaust, auto trans, and night race blue for the color. I'll probably get it from Viva, from the same salesman I got my camaro from. I like this guy's style. He's polite, but business like. He and I are kind of on the same page, so to speak. I'm figuring my vette wil have a MSRP of around 64k. My camaro will probably have less than 3000 miles on it, when I trade it in. It will be 2 years old by then. Right now it has 640 miles, and I got it mid Sept.

Well I went down to Viva and talked to them today. My salesman no longer works there. I talked to one of the managers there, and told him what I wanted. He said they would look into things, and see what they could do for me. He told me, "You're a good customer for us." I told him I was ready to buy right now. He told me they want to sell me the vette. I don't know how things will turn out. I'll eventually get it. Don't know how long, though.

I think I'll like the vette. If I don't, I'll trade it in for a 1LT camaro, because I know I would like a 1LT camaro. I really enjoy my 2LS. And with 323 HP, it has plenty of power for me. I even spun my rear tires the other day, when I rounded a corner and accelerated. I was like, "Holy Moses." That V6 can be a lot of fun.

I'm like Garfield when he says he loves driving his 2LS. Same here. I love driving my 2LS. Everytime I get in my camaro, it's fun. It drives great.

The vette is going to sold on allocation, so good luck getting one at msrp, and it won't happen at viva. They were crazy when the camaro first came out and are still that way with there zl1's.
