Ok.........


...........let us repeat in unison:


WHAT Z28???


The script said nothing about "Z28"............

In the HP Edition thread... And later in that same thread...

This is a thread that is going to be very visible - and so I say to you that no matter what the car is called -- some will love the name - others will not. I'm just hopeful that once the car hits the streets, people will come together over whatever nameplate is used - and know that the Camaro Team put their everything into this great automobile.
Maybe it is smoke and mirrors on Fbodfather's side...but until I get an e-mail from him or a post on here stating that the car will be called Z/28...I will not believe a blogger or website sensationalizing to get readership. Fbodfather takes this very seriously, and he was pretty adament that the name Z/28 was never mentioned in the script at the dealer meeting in Vegas. There is a high HP version of the Camaro coming, yes...but I am starting to doubt that it will be called Z/28.

Ah true, I did not think about that.

Not if the Z28 option is not available in a convertible. Plus it's 14 months away.

Breaking news! The "HP EDITION" is going to be called the Chevrolet "DogTurd-R" and WE ALL STILL WANT THE DAMNED THING! As long as it is the bane of all Mustang's/Challenger's existence (and it will be) I could care less what they call it.

I want the Z-28 or what ever it is going to be called. A coupe, 556 HP+, 6M Blk/Blk for under $53,000. What Z-28 are these folks reporting on for the Chicago Auto Show!

It is hard to believe it would be anything but a concept car.

I must say that I am VERY disappointed that this vehicle wasn't revealed at the NAIAS in Detroit this month. I realize this is somewhat of a "homer" perspective but I really think they should have revealed it in the Motor City.

If the production date is accurate....it would have given the competition a HUGE amount of time to up their game before it even got here....much too early, imo, and I suspect they were thinking the same sort of things...

That is a very good point. I'm still disappointed though. You may be right. That makes good sense.

I said the same thing at

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...97#post2731897


Just makes sense to unveil it at that show, since they already teased the dealers that was released with Becky's Intel

Plus it is the LARGEST of the autoshows!

Wrong, it's obviously going to debut this Friday at the 2011 West Virginia International Auto Show.

The Charleston Civic Center does seem a bit more classy than a Midwest venue.
