I am highly impressed with Mary Conway's general knowledge of automobiles, I know some of these segments are canned and rehearsed but she seemed pretty fluid to me...

I hope they'll use TVS2300 and not the 1900. It would be a shame to spend over $50,000 without much room to grow with that blower. That's my only hangup. See how efficient the 2.9 Whipple runs? I'll settle with a 2.3 but not 1.9.

What if you spend less than 50,000 and use the savings to put whatever blower you want on it?

Honestly, I've looked at this logic many times, but I much prefer (trying to get away with the moding nightmare for the first time) having a factory fast car with warranty. Trust me, in the past 12 years I've thrown away a ton of money moding cars and dealing with it's consequences.

I can definitely hear where you're coming from. It's one of the reasons I want a Z28 to begin with.

Turn of phrase. Sorta how some publications were calling Camaro's success "supercharged".

I don't expect news stations to get everything right...but she got most things spot-on, and definitely did the story with enthusiasm, and that's what counts in my book.

Did she say, "It will get a lot better gas mileage than the old ones when they were a lot more supercharged"?

Damn RIGHT it'll beat that P.O.S. mustang. The Z/28 is a beast and always has been, and there's no doubt in my mind that Ford's plastic crap toy will out do/sell the 2012 Camaro Z/28.

Z28 is about a desire of the heart, born to be wild and free, Prius is work and save the gas money so I can have fun on the weekends with my future sweetheart, Z28.

True, but it'll be nice to have 20mpg (or 25 in the SS) when we cruise to Camaro5Fest.

I'm suprised it made the news, but certainly happy about it! The more exposure, the more talk, the more likely we get what we want

I'd like a pair of footprints, a couple hundred feet long, about 305mm each (or more )
