If anything, I'd put long tube headers and high flow cats to the factory exhaust and mufflers. Definitely no need to change those

I don't like the ricey front end, don't care for the ground effects, not a fan of suede and the obscure name ZL1 is lame. 60K +- is not in the spirit of what Camaro is in my opinion. I am impressed with the magnetic ride suspension, I LOVE the exhaust, the supercharger and engine are AWESOME. Worth double the cost of a base 1SS. . . . . NOPE sorry. I won't be investing 60K+- just to have value depreciate 10K+ soon as I drive off the lot. I am currently searching for a first gen I can protour out.


and YES before you ask. . . . Z28 nomenclature would have gone a long way towards getting me over the shortcomings I previously mentioned. In addition I learned Z28 will be released as soon as 2014. I just can't wait that long for a Camaro so 1st gen here I come, maybe add a 2014 Z28 later. . . . OK don't be too offended anyone, I just can not justify twice the cost for the deficiencies I previously mentioned (personal opinions) to get upgraded suspension and a motor/supercharger upgrade.

Nice pics!... I'm so impressed with the American Pride... pics DO NOT give the paint job the justice it deserves!! We had it at our event 2 weeks ago, Camaro for Heroes and i was floored at the detail.

Now, the ZL is a nice car.... There are somethings IMO that are not all that impressive, however I do like the exhaust, and wheels... but what I do want................ is Chevrolet to make a CHIN SPOILER like this one to fit our cars!............. C'mon Chevy....SLP hasn't answered the demand for their chin spoiler, so somebody needs to make one thats not all radical and specific to a whole gfx kit.

Good exhaust photos and first time I have noticed the small "mudflap" extensions on the quarter panels to avoid massive amounts of rubber on the paint. Nice touch......Wow, does that shifter look tall to anyone else? Not like bang your knuckles on the rear view mirror TALL but taller than the regular SS gear rower.

Love the car. Thanks again.
Those aren't mudflaps Those are air deflectors to manage the air around the wheelopenings Notice they are on the front of the front wheels and aft of the rear?

To each his own I was hoping for Z28 for this car, but ZL1 has been growing on my since the announcement, and I'm over it now. I still want Z28 back, but 2014? Eegads!!! I hope that's wrong... It seems to me that's going to be pretty close to the 6th Gen coming, and I hope we don't have to wait that long for Z28 to come into that tiny segment. Regardless - I'm sure it'll be done right, and it will do the name justice

'Rockstar - THANKS SO MUCH!!! I haven't even looked at them, but flashed by, and wanted to say thanks. Please keep them coming

EDIT: So many great pictures of so many great cars. Thanks again. I can post some more on the FACTS Sticky

I understand where you are on your outlook.

imo if you gotta have a Camaro and gotta have one now and what you see isnt in your vision and a first gen ( that can be fixed up ) is in the budget then I dont blame you.

I love driving my 10 like no other. Everytime I get behind the wheel its permagrin 100% but is it like getting in my 69 ? NO


Thanks again for the pics.

Great pics! Its gonna be really tough waiting out for this car (especially in my case). The zl1 definitely nailed the "Super Camaro" concept......this car gets all A's in my book. Thanks for sharing.
