Just a reminder folks, #28 is taken.
I believe they bought the rights to ZL, not ZL1. If you look closely, their 'ZL1' is really a 'ZLtm1'

I don't know one way or the other if GM ever let the trademark on ZL1 go away, or if they ever en tm'd it in the first place, since it was never really a Camaro model ... just an alpha numeric code like any other.

Pete...and Mike/LPE...here we are, with 800-and-some posts spread over 30-odd pages, trying to guide/evaluate/reassure ourselves and others of a "Z/28 blueprint to success". Resulting in a canyon-carving BOSS-busting wallet-friendly daily-driveable weekend-wicked heritage-hungry Gen-5 Camaro warrior...

There is interest. SERIOUS interest. At greater unit profit than an SS. For units that will draw traffic and add conquest sales. That are worthy of the name...

Who's gonna fill the VOID?! And when?

Even if we have to build it ourselves. If you think about it what can Chrevrolet offer that we cannot add ourselves? Right now if you start with any SS LS3 and $10k you can build a 425+ rwhp track starlet with a full warranty that has limits way beyond most drivers (me included) that probably would dust any affordable Z28. I guess what you lose is some resale and the emblems.

But do I hope we see a Z28. I wouold be a good start for my next project. And I would love to see the inevitable Z28 - Boss showdown. Of course the magazines will hammer the Z28 for visibility, looking like a Transformer and the sterring wheel. Even if the Camaro wins on the track it will be:

Pete, did you figure the base price for a ZLP28?

We'll call it....The Emblemator ...., side note.., still thinkin about the LS7, that LS7 is an amazing engine....it keeps pulling past 7,000 RPM stock on the dyno charts...with alot of room for growth, it's not even breaking a sweat. That is one bullet proof blue printed engine. I looked up pricing, 14 and change in the crate without pulleys and front bolt ons. Yes, the ZL1 is a magnificant piece of engineering, but for a foundation to start from and build up reliably....that 'lil "factory" hand built LS7 is a motor heads dream come true.

If you're in the Detroit area for the NASCAR races or Woodward Dream Cruise, consider this rare event.

Raise you hand if you wanna go...



While I'm there, I'll check out their "capacity" and suggest some "volume enhancement..."
UPDATE:

We very much enjoyed GM's hospitality, Thursday. BBQ. Many interesting cars on display, outside, not all of which housed "Wixom Power". Met some old friends. The tour itself was very interesting, and insightful. Watched an LS9 being built from bottom-up. Saw their testing equipment. Unfortunately, cameras WERE allowed...but I didn't have mine, expecting them NOT to be useful... So, applies...

Some of the assemblers were in the GM Performance Parts display at 13 Mile, Friday and Saturday, assembling and disassembling an LS9...in about 90 minutes, each process. Wish I could be that productive...

Other than the mini-twister that went thru the Royal Oak area, Saturday afternoon late, and led to traffic problems Northbound Saturday nite, the Cruise was worth the journey as usual...and the ZL1 on display at the Chev display in Birmingham was a treat for those in attendance.

NO ONE...in any capacity...at Wixom...or the Chev display...wanted to talk about a "possible Z/28"...rumors abound, but no "insight"..."hints", kinda-sorta, but nothing to hang your hat on...

Sorry...but sometimes, no news is GOOD NEWS... NO ONE denied it, either...
