How can it be a Z28 with no stickers!

Z28 have always had wild sticker patterns stripes/etc The new one looks way too plain and no radical hood scoop?

Will trade in only if in advance they designate triple-wide parking spots for Z/28s at Wal-Mart...

I won't be trading in my ZL1 for the Z/28. It's not practical for me not being a DD. I am excited to see one in person and or on the road if a brave owner takes one out on the street.

If it actually had a radio I'd consider it. It's odd to me that the radio weighed so much it had to be eliminated.

It's not the type of purchase many will be trading in for. It's more like adding another to the stable type of purchase. Most current owners' Camaros serve a different purpose than what this new Z/28 has to offer.

Not @ that price. Rather get a ZL1, gut it and it'll go faster than the Z28. That's what the original bare bones ZL1 were baby!

No... and what were they thinking with those taillights? Oh, I know... "let's make it look cheap and like everything else."

I'll take the LS7 though, anyday.

That seems to be the biggest complaint about the car.

I hope everyone understands that the weight saving is not the radio it's self but the 9-speakers with 20oz magnets + the sub amp (10lbs +/-)

If I wanted to hear music, I would drop down a few gears to make the LS7 sing.

Obviously if you put 305's and lighter rims of the Z/28 on the ZL1, (and maybe those brakes) what might happen to that 3 seconds? The lower splitter on the front of the /28, other stripped out items (radio, soundproofing, etc) won't make it or it's driver happy on the street. It is my belief the ZL1 still maintains the advantage over the Z/28 that the ZR1 has over the Z/28 if you added just a couple of mods to the ZL1. Advantages the Z/28 just wouldn't be able to overcome. Future ZL1's should have the better rotors and rim options and recaro's (nobody has mentioned that the recaros' are part of the 3 seconds due to driver control added).

The ZL1 remains the Most Street Capable Camaro Ever. Likely capable on the track as well with just a few mods mentioned above. Close enough anyway.
