I would take the '67 over the 2014 in a heartbeat. The 1st gen Camaros had a style to them that IMO cannot be topped.

Having drivena real 69 Z/28 on a road course, I would take the 67 over the new one. Hell, if I could find a 69-70 Boss 302 willing to trade, I would swap in a minute for the classic ride. All out performance is one thing, but it takes real skill to drive one of those old buggers well!

I'm just the opposite. I am totally over old cars. Compared to cars of today even the most awesome old car is crude and drives like crap.

More people agree with you than me, though, because the value of the old ones keep going up.

In 1967, Z/28 was just the next RPO after Z27. GM didn't have a name or badges for the car. By mid-year 1968, they still didn't have a name and had been referring to it by it's RPO for a year, so they decided to just put Z/28 badges on it and make it official. RS could definitely be combined with Z/28 in 1967 and would have been marked RS. The car in the photo has rally stripes and Z/28s were the only 1st or 2nd gens to get rally stripes. No Camaros got rear spoilers until 1968. And I thought front spoilers debuted with the rear spoilers. I know that by 1969 the spoilers were RPO D80 and included front and rear spoilers.

Spoilers were available for 1967 late in the model year as an OTC purchase.

That's news to me, but I'm still pretty sure that none were factory installed until 1968.

As has been discussed on this forum previously, the first gen Indy Pace Cars got the Rally Stripes as well, so those stripes were not totally exclusive to the Z/28.

I've read for years how underrated that engine was , but Motor Trend had it 0-60 in over 7 seconds.
and before someone says something about the tire size they had the 63' Sting Ray under 6 seconds and they were no larger.

I think the Z/28 had a few options for that engine...a cross-ram, dual-carbed manifold comes to mind....For sure would bump up hp....

I never said the top 2014 Vette... I said the top Vette. there are still some ZR1's on some lots. So.... your twist of logic is faulty. Good try. I never said the Z/28 would come in at $39*** I said $70*** ish. Oh well, you tried. C-.

Indeed, you never said the top 2014 Corvette. But by using the 1967 Camaro Z/28 and the 1967 Corvette, logic would dictate that for the 2014 Z/28 you should use the 2014 Corvette -not the 2013.

Very few of the cross rams were ever used on the street, the single four barrrel carb was quite enough for the street as it was a Holley 780cfm double pumper. Once you made some linkage adjustments to the carb to better control the secondaries and or re-jetting, you were pretty much at optimum gas intake for the 302cid engine as built at the factory. Back in '69 I found a lot of improvement to be had from ignition improvements like a dual point distributor. Chevrolet Dyno charts from back in the day show the single four barrel producing 440hp@ 7,400 rpm and the cross ram dual quads producing 463hp@ 7,400 rpm.

If you logic dictates only using comps on cars from the same year that are released, then you cant do it because the z/28 is not released yet. Mine was a hypothetical comp. Intended to be hypothetical and my comp, as stated, justifies a $70Kish Z/28 price. My logic is sound. You can twist it... but no reason to. Correct?

You used two cars from the same model year for 1967, so it only makes sense to do the same thing for the 2014 Z/28. I'm not really sure how that doesn't make for a fair, honest, apples to apples comparison. If you don't think it does, well I can't really convince you and I'm not even going to try. Its your opinion, and thats that. And I'm not trying to twist anything, as you said I have no reason to.

But we've taken up a little too much space in this thread with our side-discussion. So lets agree that if a 1966 Corvette with as many go-fast goodies as you could tick off on the order sheet came in at around $5,400 ... the 67 Z/28 was about $3,500 ... the 2013 ZR1 tops out at $122k ... so the 2014 Z/28 would be around 79 grand.

the one thing i'd ad to that is that the new Z/28 is a far more extreme performance car than any of it's predecessor's. it looks to be just this side of a race car.
Hence the higher price.
