Haha...Winner White. Love it.

Also an excellent point on the solar reflectivity for non-A/C

The bad news is you would have to clear film wrap pretty much the whole car if you plan to track it (as I would), otherwise cleaning the clag off of it would be a never ending job. With that said, that color with clag streaks would have an interesting look...like this:

Cool "red hot", now that's a name for a color. Calling all photo-shoppers.

Many specific topics going on out there. Taking a lot of time and brain power to keep up.

BOOM...or is it *thud*, the sound of jaws dropping from the unveil of the Z/28. All the years of speculation now reduced to waiting with anticipation of further news and info on this conquering American roadcourse beast.

It's like finally reaching a goal, savoring it and then ...at that moment you say to yourself... "Ok, now what?"

My question is, will GM legitimize the release of this hallowed car by entering back into sanctioned races as they did back in the late '60's? or will they just let the consumer be the one to prove it's roadcourse manners?

I would love for GM to pick up Stevenson Motorsports and make them a factory ride. Z/28 in the new United SportsCar racing series FTW!

I'm not sure if Becky is still tracking production or not... you may want to check with her.



Edit: Looks like she is still tracking orders...

They went through the trouble of SCCA certification for the 1LE. Don't see why they wouldn't do it for the Z28.

Likely the car the show car was made from. Somebody check that bin code and see what engine it is. Shouldn't be any 2014 production VINs yet.

Yeah, as per above, it's a converted '13 SS Manual...

Anyone interested in a ZL1...an "original" Camaro COPO 9560, from "back in the day"? Here's your chance:

Spoke with a friend of The House today. He'll be selling his Camaro soon for very good reasons. I feel bad because I know what Camaro means to me and Ive never actually owned one. He was one of the patient originals.

Bummer for sure, but....it's just a car and....it can be replaced later. Sometimes people get really wrapped up in their cars putting more priority on them than they really deserve. Good for whoever this person is. Other life circumstances are clearly a higher priority.

thanks Jim. You've folowed my build from the very begining... I'll never forget your trip to Daytona. Your willingness to share the early pre pro camaro with Camaro5 has always been appreciated by me.

couldn't agree more.. It was a pretty easy decision. There will be another one, I have no doubt.

There will be a for sale thread up soon. Tom Henry is also going to help me broker the deal.

Otherwise, what fodder would we have for all those "the one that got away" car stories we'll tell our grandkids?!
