I have owned a zl1 and driven the z28.. no way in hell to me would I buy the z28 even at the same price.. and I can buy either.. that does not mean it is not truly awesome car..it is.. but first the ZL1 is highly underrated in the z28 crowd.. Both are awesome cars!!

How has the ZL1 been underrated by the Z/28 crowd? Several of us have owned ZL1's in the past/present.

I've never seen a Z/28 guy bash a ZL1 or any other Gen5 Camaro. If I'm wrong, please provide examples and I'll stand corrected.



Furthermore,

Now, I've seen numerous posts from non-Z/28 owners who claim that other model Gen5's are better cars than the Z/28 in one way or another. Optioned differently doesn't necessarily mean better or worse for that matter. It's all relative to what the potential buyer is looking for in a high performance vehicle.

As stated in my earlier post, I've owned (not just test driven) all three (SS, ZL1, Z/28) and all are great cars that each have strengths and weaknesses. After putting thousands of miles on each model, my personal preference is the Z/28 and as you similarly stated, there ain't no way I'll go back and purchase another ZL1 after owning a Z/28.

The ZL1 is an awesome car but I like the Z/28 much, much better. No justification needed, simply personal preference. I'm sure many ZL1, SS, LT, RS owners, etc. feel the same way about their vehicles. With that said, I try to be cautious about discussing negatives about any other Gen5 model because what's negative to me may be something positive to someone else.

In the end car choices are all subjective to the owners preference by what's important to them and what they look for in a vehicle, but some people take every opportunity to take negative swipes at the Z/28 in one way or another. Unfortunately, this thread is riddled with them.

I saw the same negative swipes toward the ZL1 in that forum from some non-ZL1 guys before the Z/28 appeared on the scene.

Maybe the spoon is empty, reference to Z/28 owners, and there's nothing to feed. If you run across an instance, please advise.

Thanks,

Look we are all Camaro fans on this site, when the ZL1 came out it was the top dog, and we where all happy for the guys that got one, but we know in our hart there was a better track car on the way,but if you look true this Z/28 forum you will see lots of posts from fellow members putting down the car for its price, that's not right IMO, if you dont like the car for something it does or does not do then state what bad on the car.


I do this all the time, car need to drop more weight and add more power, here is hoping GM can do it in the next Gen6 Z/28.

Yea, forums for open discussion don't please everyone For some it is frustrating the car costs what it does for what you are buying.. I could care less
