Remember there hasn't ever been alot of differences between the Z28 and the SS models other than wheels, some trim items, some times the hood and of course the emblems...
And the very first Z28 (67) didn't look any different than your base model 6 Cyl Camaro.

Thanks.
If I could fit this quote in my sig', I SO would

The Chevrolet Camaro Z28 won't be more refined (with regard to NVH) than the Cadillac CTS-V. If anything, it will be less refined, which opens the door to improved performance. Whatever they did in the CTS-V, they can push it a little further in the Camaro. So the suspension can be a bit firmer and they'll get away with it. And the exhaust can be a bit louder and they'll get away with it. But even if everything is tuned the exact same as the CTS-V, the Z28 is going to be a bit lighter which will improve overall performance.
Lower restriction exhaust = more power; stiffer ride = lowered with better bushings, springs, sways, coil overs and better handline

I fully expect Z28 to be at least a couple seconds faster than CTS-V. Like 'G said - Z28 can be tuned to be a lot more aggressive which will result in a better performing car. I'm hoping we get some magneto' shocks with all this too, but there are vendors here that are putting out probably better products for us, so I'm not worried about anything.

I love the stance!!! OMG! I love the profile of the tires in the wheel openings and it looks like they're as big as they're going to get. Maybe it's just my eyes, but it looks like there was a lot of weight transfer when it left the starting line so I wonder if it'll have similar settings ZR1 and CTS-V have as far as Launch Control or something along those lines. It seems really flat during cornering.

Two things, if I may: I hope we don't get new, bigger mirrors, because, that might have to be the first thing I change, lol. Second - I'm still hoping for the PS2s, because I just don't have confidence in those F1s; if the PS2s were good enough for the 'Vette and Caddy, they're good enough for Z28.

Back to watching the video again, LOL!

Uh, maybe in some things, but if you have paid any attention at all with the Camaro, styling wise, tradition seems to win out over doing what others are doing...
