Why do you LOVE the ZL1?

A little different take on Jashobbsie's thread.

Why do I love the ZL1? Well a little convoluted but I'm a huge fan of Top Gear and 5th Gear. The dig on American cars is that they couldn't take a turn. GM started to fix that with the first gen CTS-V. There was some criticism of the 2010 Camaro's handling and GM reacted quickly. To me, the ZL1 and forthcoming Z28 finally answer our European critic's question.....can America build affordable cars that actually handle on a road course? Not just yes, but hell yes!

^^^ Bout says it all. The style is magnificent. The power...well, when I get one I suspect it's gonna knock me out over my SS. The front end is aggressive. The interior is menacing (with the black door panels). The sound is fabulous. Where's my checkbook?

Why do I love my ZL1?

Because of the aggressive sound, menacing stance, impressive sound, the near supercar handling and power on an affordable budget, comfortable interior and most importantly.... its is full of bad@$$ery!

Love your sig quote "I'm your huckleberry" that's my line whenever I see a rustang, other muscle car or rice burner on the road.
