maybe because old school muscle cars are all manual ... its the way it is ... but i agree, for sales purposes an auto should be offered (although a car like this should not be bought in auto)

are you crazy?!? that interior is beautiful... that red stitching alone is ... but then again I have a RJT now and will probably get the same color in the ZL1 so the red stitching will help me match overall ... and suade is so nice and comfortable...

Rocky, with all of the complaints about thin paint and how easily it chips, how has the paint been on your car. If they do not make the ZL1 in a lighter blue color, RJT is my backup color, if it is available.

my RJT has only chiped along the front bumper in very small spots ... most likely from tiny pebble on the road hitting me as most of my driving is highway... that can EASILY be primed and fixed to look like new

other that that and someone love tapping me in the rear for a tiny tiny paint chip (also very easily fixed to new) ... my paint is fine...

im thinking ZL1 in RJT like the orignal promo pictures.. or summit white with havoc racing stripes on the side... black and white contrast is ... but then again... girls really dig red cars ... its the color of passion

ZL1 proposed brochure cover...

The ZL-1 looks good in green, kinda reminds me of the 1969 SS brochure cover...

That is at odds with all the information that I've been able to obtain so far. The first orders of ZL1s will begin in Q4 2011, with production starting in January 2012, and the first customer deliveries will start in late February and early March 2012.

Also, the ZL1 is not going to be a limited run production vehicle as the 2011 Indy Pace Car is, with only 500 units being built. Chevrolet will build as many ZL1s as there are orders for them.

Well I can see only 300 to 500 being made in the first month of production, due to the fact production may start after the first week in
January. Also keep in mind they will be making all the other camaro's at the same time at the same factory I am assuming? So keeping that in mind, I can see the first month or two being pretty limited on the availabilty of the LZ1. That's why I went and placed my name first on my
dealers list back in January figuring this may happen. But as the year
progresses there should be plenty around for those interested in this car.

But heck their's so many unkowns about this car such as all the colors,
will there be an automatic, all the options, and of course the MSRP.
Those are all factors for me along with my dealer sticking to his promise
that I will be able to buy the car at the MSRP.

Fortunately for me I must have 30 chevy dealers within an hour's drive
of where I live, so that helps with the negotiations some what.

Will know more in about 6 months and hopefully sooner then that, will
see.

I went to the C5 Fest last year and had a great time but I am saving for the ZL1 this year so I will have to wait for next year. Take care.

Thanks for the info, with the paint problems they are having I will have to wait until the end of the year to see what will be available.
