If it's in the low 7.20's that would make it one of the top 10 track cars on Gods green earth. Just throwing that out there.

You are definatley putting the car in a certain demographic than your average Joe can afford which is what the Camaro always was to me, the perfect sports car for the middle class. The ZL1 for me was the top of the class for everyday Camaro owners. To pay 10k for every second faster than the ZL1 (if 85k for Z/28) )around a track brings the "want" of this car to only a select few, kind of like the COPO did. IMHO I wanted to see a Z28 for the average joe and this is not it. But congrats to those of you who got exactly what they wanted, a very special car.

The Z06 is the go-by. The car won't stray too far from it IMO. 75K-80k is probably the upper limit. I want one bad, but anything over 80k and I'll probably have to bow out

I really think GM is making a poor decision here... the Z/28 as described so far, is only going to be appealing to a very small group. It seems apparent that they are going to price it north of the ZL1, and the ZL1 to me is the limit for a new Camaro...

I really wonder if it would not have been more effective the go with Z/28 nomenclature instead of 1LE... and fit the Z/28 in between the SS and the ZL1? I have seen nothing but positive reviews about the 1LE changes, and they seemed to be geared towards handling and road corse style racing...

Then buy a 1LE. Why does the name matter if it's the car that someone wants?

There's a Camaro designed for anyone wanting one!!!

I hear ya, lol. But the car made the name (especially since it was not even a name, but an rpo code) not the name...the car.

I have a soft spot for the Z-28 as my first Camaro was an 02 35th Anniversary Z-28 loaded, and while I would love to own another... it is being elevated and priced out of your average persons budget...

No, Mr. Hendrick is the premiere caretaker of the heritage and history of Chevrolet. He purchases GM/Chevy historical vehicles. He is THE man. Before you make such a calous statement you should research all that he has done, what he has, and how he is commited to preserving the historical Chevy record of all things badass Bowtie.

That's why I feel the 1LE could have been the Z-28, add a few more things price it at $45k and have it sit in between the SS and the ZL1... sells like hot cakes!

I know of Rick. But does he deserve all #1 cars that comes out in low production just because of his status? He's simply scooping them up to sit, collect dust and try to sell for a Mint later on. I'd think it should be first come first serve no? Give everyone a chance to obtain it.

Most of these are bought at BJ Auctions, so anyone can buy...with the top bid. It's just Rick has been the top bidder.

He is not the only one bidding on the cars he gets... If he wants to drop a million on a car and every penny goes to charity more power to him. Somebody else can have the car, they just have to outbid Rick!
