Sorry, just venting a little.
THe Vette comes with 4 separate LT option packages, there is no LS cause there is not such thing as a Vette with steel wheels...Its just an option package label....

Yeah, now we get to say, "Hey, come check out my Camaro LT!" I can't believe they are going to throw this LS/LT junk on a Camaro

Ya, but I'm sure some of the Corvette guys here can say they were in the same boat. There's some people that keep waiting for the next year because "something better will be out next year". Then the next year comes, then the next year, then the next year. At some point, you just need to give in, otherwise you'll never own the car you've always wanted. Also, I wouldn't expect a Z28 within the first year of launch. You only live once. The Camaro is back, so go out and buy that SS.

All I'm saying is that words could have been chosen carefully. I am not laying claim to knowing anything personally.

No one has whispered anything into my ear and said they WILL do this or the WILL do that. Sit back and think about this for a second. All the architecture will already be there...All the underpinnings...etc. The engine will need to be upgraded. CHECK. Testing will need to be done. I'd be surprised if GM hasn't done testing on the Z28 yet.

GM WILL sell all Z28's made. I'm sure of that. It would be a bad business move IMO if they didn't come out with it yet. Maybe they want to get it right and need more time on it??? Right???

You guys can get upset if you want.

You guys can continue to listen to Scotts words and "have faith."

I, for one, will be waiting for the info to be revealed from GM about the Z28. I know...some might say, "Dude....they just told you about the Z28." No (IMO)....they didn't.

THE Z28

Ok so I dont feel like writing on ever damn no Z28 thread.

Look we all knew or should have known there would be no talk of a Z28 today. Also for those who will say "but but its not on the spec sheet," nor is the vert are you going to start crying "wait no vert WTF." The Z28 will most likely by a 2010 model, you dont think GM would spend money to advertise a Z28 TF2 do you???

I am so tired of this stupid crying. Just read the threads and you would know about this!!!

THATS COOL BUT I DON'T WANT TO HAVE THAT BABY BLOW UP WHEN SOME SOCALLED SPEED SHOP FORGETS TO TUNE IT THE RIGHT WAY THEN IT WILL VOID MY WARANTEE, COST AN EXTRA 2000 ON TOP OF THE 6000 TO 7000 TO HAVE THOSE GUYS INSTALL AND TUNE PLUS DYNO. AND THEN I WONT BE ABLE TO HAVE THAT FINANCED OR MAYBE I CAN NEGOTIATE THE PRICE DOWN SO THAT I WILL GET THAT SUPERCHARGER FOR FREE. THAT IS WHAT I DID WITH MY AVALANCHE AND THE 7000 DOLLAR 22"S I GOT FOR NO CHARGE, OH AND DID I MENTION THE BILLET GRILL I GOT FOR FREE BECAUSE THEY INSTALLED ALL OF IT.

I WANT A FACTORY INSTALLED SUPERCHARGER THAT COMES FROM GM THAT I KNOW WILL WORK IN THE CAR EVERY TIME I TURN THE KEY. BUT IF IT DOESNT WORK I CAN TAKE THAT BITCH BACK AND HAVE THEM FIX IT

Its not that anyone is complaining that its not coming out, at least I'm not. Personally would like to hear if they are working on one thats all just like they are working on a vert. Its as simple as that. No one wants to argue about this, I'm just stating my thoughts.

I do agree a good place to advertise a monster Camaro would be Transformers 2 in July-ish... and then come out with the monster at the end of that year.

No one needs to get mad, we are all humane and we can discuss our thoughts right?

Not saying not to have packages (stereo, appearance, etc) but why not have the car itself be an RS, call the package whatever you want or just call it a coupe, anything "Camaro like" but LS/LT.

You bring up a good point. Lets assume we knew the monster Camaro was coming out and we knew that two years later there would be better one, say 630 hp. Would we wait 3 years?

Personally I would not. I'd get the first Monster and live with that. All I want is a great top of the line or "near the top" vehicle... and right now thats an SS, but of course who knows when a supercharged Camaro will come. I will wait, the good news is that when you can actually go out and buy an SS, there will be information on the monster whether its a "go" or "no go"

Like jmliptak said, the Corvette is split up into 4 different levels of "LT". So will the Camaro, but unlike the Cobalt, Impala, etc; it won't be referred to or badged an "LS" or "LT", its just an option group; no need to get upset over it.

Dude, there are any number of us on this board that had Camaro's before you were born...Don't worry, it will come, and when it does the delay will mean that much more time to make it even cooler...Its funny how your perception of time changes as you age and how your definition of forever changes...I have been there...I only got my first Camaro after the Fiero (yes, I ordered one) did not come in after 9 months because the supplier that made the alloy wheels on the nicer trim model went bankrupt. This will be Camaro number 5, so while the wait was VERY PAINFUL it worked out great and we one here today talking about the NEW Camaro....Nothing to be ashamed or feel bad about, age is all in your mind, and that is indeed where MY problem lies....
