Personally, I was actually pretty interested to know why the Z/28s front end wasn't changed a little more from the normal piece.

One thing is true, as was mentioned in here...They learned/discovered that when the lower opening is bigger than the upper opening, the car takes on a more lean, sporty look. They learned this from the ZL1...the lower grille for which was designed to function...and function demanded BIG. So in effect, the ZL1's front end could be considered "in between" the original design and the refresh.

EDIT: Also...no cooling "problems" for ZL1 in OE form. Higher cooling needs, sure, due to the blower and higher overall power...but most of the cooling air for the heat exchanger comes from the lower air dam, anyways.
The ZL1 front end is ahead of its time. Just a classic front end.

Look at the first PDF. Lots of good info. I believe they were Black, Silver Ice Metallic, Ashen Grey, Summit White, and Red Hot.

Thanks. It was driving me crazy trying to find where I had read it.

Does anyone have specs or pictures of the Dry sump oil system or location. I am curious where they fit the tank.

The dry sump tank is located just behind the radiator. You should see the cap on top with the Oil symbol and the inlet and outlet hoses going to it.

I can see the vendors now.
They will be building a nice polished one, which would look killer under the hood.

Kinda reminds me of a much better looking GTR, could be the color....excellent. I wasn't so sure about the front end changes but the more I see I like.

well i had to come over and check this thing out...
Not too bad...but i'm tired of saying that I hate those tail lights...so I'll just leave it at that.
Its not the car for me....the reason i bought a ZL1 is because it still looks a bit retro...
in my opinion, this is just a beefed up ZL1 with half the looks.
This is Chevy's attempt to knock the socks off a Shelby Mustang...I highly doubt they will achieve this. Look at the sacrifices they had to do to try this...I mean, NO RADIO????
lol what the hell is the fun of driving without a radio?? Again, not the car for me...its a crying stab at trying to beat a Ford....sorry but this is how I see it.
Just put all the options in it and let the customer bring it to a high performance shop and do their stuff if you want to beat a Ford. I like the paint job though...but they'll probably end up saying that this is just for the prototype and not available to the general public... mark my words. lol
and those seats are killer! The tires and rims are not something to be desired as well...
put it this way, if I never bought a camaro in 2012 and one in 2013 and I had to settle for this stuff...I would have definitely bought a mustang, I'm serious. Their design team needs to be fired, seriously. Its not too often that something bothers me on this forum but I would have loved for the z28 to be a touch more retro and a little less honda prelude...sorry

cheers!

Legally it is, just missing some creature comforts.
