REALLY WHO CARES...There both CAMARO's and thats the only thing that matters.

But for the sake of argument.

They are complete different cars, One was built for Drag racing, the other was built for street performance.

Lets do this:

SS vs Z28 in the quarter mile...who win's....SS....Hands Down!
SS vs Z28 at the Track...who win's....Z28...without breaking a sweet!


So one could say they were both "TOP DOGS" in there own "back yards"...

SO PLEASE LET IT GO!

so if we go by history here, if and when there is a camaro z-28 it wouldnt, or shouldnt out perform the SS.

you think there going to put a supercharger on a V8 pushing out 420 horses already, and have it surpass the SS?

that just wouldnt add up in my opinion, unless they go with this current line and supercharge the V6 or something.

no?
Why didn't you just reply to one of the other Z28 threads? Also, things change. The SS doesn't HAVE to be top dog. For crying out loud, SS, Z28, who cares.

i dont think my post is negative, and im not trying to be.

i think a z-28 would be cool as well. but if chevrolet is going to start producing an SS, there are going to be people that want the best, and as of now this is it.

i remember reading a while back that this SS was supposed to be the supercharged motor, the z-28 was not.

my prediction is that in the future this will happen. that is if gas prices allow it.

you may not but after doing a lot of damage control another post pops up about how there's no Z28, SS is the best, blah blah blah Z28 is dead or wot not. and it's not like there isn't another thread that corrosponded to this thought that wasn't already made that you could have posted in. that's the point.

You're ok, it's just that this has already been hashed over..a few...hundred...times. Hey we have a 5th gen, is that cool or what? Paint it plaid and put barney stickers on the door I'll still drive it, heck even as a 4 banger.

1. Go up to Home Depot and get a sheet of 1/4" aluminum ducting

2. Stencil the design of your favorite era Z28 insignia on to the ducting

3. Cut out stencil

4. Paint in your favorite shade of red or black

5. Glue to deck of your Camaro

6. Enjoy!





Do we really need to hear anything else about this?????????

Well if you hadn't noticed they didn't use "LT, RS, Z/28, and SS" as the trim levels... they went inline with the current format of LS LT and SS as the trim levels. In my opinion The Z was the best of the best because it was the total package... it could beat you on the straight and the corners Look for the Z28 to possibly have the LSA at one point... i can't wait honestly.

Okay, first I meant absolutely no offense. That was my sense of humor about the whole thing that I think is quite immature that some people are in such an uproar over the absense of the Z28. But I do understand on the same token that it's an important part of the Camaro herritage. It's just, the Camaro is back, and we should all be lucky and thankfull it has returned at all.

Second, would the performance of the car you order as an SS with either the L99 or LS3 be any differently if the badge on the decklid said Z28 instead of SS? Would your 4th gen F-body feel any different if you took off the Z28 badging from the front fenders?

Again, no disrespect to the Z28, but sometimes people go a little overboard.

I love the Z28, and wish there was a Z28. Having said that, I'm going to order an SS and will be thrilled with the car I'm sure.
