Z28 at Barrett-Jackson, Reno

Chevrolet was there and showed off some of their latest models including two C7 Corvettes, '14 Silverado and a red SS. But the jaw dropper was this satin white Z28. Unfortunately the hood was closed but there are few adjectives to describe this stunning car. The car is a great tribute to the historical Z28 models. I am told by another forum member that this car is #5 and is a pre-production model.

Yeah Fbodfather said at the Fest they weren't allowed to open the hoods of any pre-production cars.

Interesting, because at the Baker's Camaro show here in Michigan the hood was open, not on the pre-production one, but one from the proving grounds.

While at Cfest we heard the trunk couldn't be opened, but shortly after hearing this information, the trunk was opened and a few people were snapping photos, we took photos of those taking photos.

Oh, that trunk reminds me of our '63 Impala's trunk. Looks like we are going back to the old days of cars.

I'm torn, I love some of the modern accessories and reliability of new cars, but there was something real nice about a car being basic and easy to work on with cars built in the old days.

It does seem to have a tilt to it... whether that's on purpose or by mistake, dunno. It could be on purpose as the design of the Z/28 emblem itself seems to be a bit slanted.

Might have been the angle they took the picture.

So, wait they do produce the car in the satin white? Now, that's not right.

I read somewhere that the satin white was only produced for SEMA or something like that. Won't be an RPO.

B-J auctions rock, often I spent vast amounts of my down time on weekends watching them live. That was when they were on the Speed channel. Recently I lost that channel in my cable network, instead Fox Sports 1 took it over. That's good,.... but I also wan't Speed back...
