The new Z/28 will announced a few months after the ZL1 has hit the streets.

That's when Chevrolet will pull their chips from the ZL1, and go all in on the Z/28.

I personally think they need to make the Z-28 a N/A beast. No turbo or supercharger. Just brute force with just the engine.

I am convinced it will be close copy of this car. See Bumblebee 2 vs ZL1.

All I can say is....

T-Tops

I want my T-Tops cause I'm not going to blare my tunes without the wind in my hair, and I'm not too fond of convertibles.

He told me that was the best damn answer he ever heard.

I personally don't see T-Tops in the future. Maybe a targa for the next gen.

someone is stuck in the 80's. got your mullet still? j/k man.

believe me I loved my T-tops on my old 98 Z, but for performance they aren't something you want. to me the Z28 should be about performance with minimal creature comforts standard. but you can option it out.


a 1Z28 would be radio AC, no onstar, no nav, no 8 speaker surround, no bluetooth, etc.

a 2z28 would have the better sound system possibly bluetooh and leather.


but I'm just dreamin.

I know what you mean cause they'd probably weigh down the car a little and the roof is one of the main twist points when high toque comes from jolting starts.

That's why we ended up buying another 3rd gen (1982) hardtop that's sitting in our garage. We were going to build it and race it over the summer, but I chose college so I can have more moneys to play with a better job.

My dad told me a couple of stories of T-topped big block Camaros at the strip losing a top or two when they got off the line.

I am liking the idea of the front facia off of the transformers Camaro. That seems pretty cool to me. I also like that aftermarket spoiler that looks like the one from a 2nd gen Camaro. I can't find a picture, but someone posted a pic in a topic a while back that had one. Painted stripes also sounds like a solid option. Just hope there will be a blue color of some type available by the time the car is made, because I don't know what color I'd go with otherwise.

Repair costs made them rare...but I hear the feds made them extinct...not to mention in the Corvette's case, Europe outlawed them before us - but GM wanted to sell the Vette there...so the hideaways had to go. :(

Proof? As I don't see any reasonable reason that congress passed a law on this.

Congress never needs a REASONABLE reason to pass a law, one need only look at the thousands of absolutely ridiculous pieces of legislation they've passed over the years. And you might as well brace yourself, unless there is a major change in the direction of our Congress, it is only going to get worse.

Has to have a functional cowl induction hood,
must have really big brakes,
must have aggressive suspension set up,
must have spoilers front and rear, must have 3:73 gears and a naturally aspirated 500 horsie shorter than 6.2 L stroke revver engine.
Forged crank titanium rods,forged pistons, aggressive cam.
Possibly have active brake cooling, adjustable suspension, 21" x 10.5" wheels and the lowest profile tire available.
closer ratio trans gears with 6th as 1 to 1. possibly an 8 speed to accomodate an overdrive. built in chassis stiffeners and serious weight loss. ie use of carbon fiber body parts or fiberglass.
cross ram intake design with optomized mid range tuning.

Whoops..re-read title ..I totally suck. This is supposed to be to do with appearance. I kind of rambled into performance...sorry

1) yeah..cross ram. kinda like a two-stage intake with electronically adjustable runner volume.
2) envision more speeds to stay within power band kinda like a crotch rocket
3) 21" wheels= less rubber sidewall=less slip angle. I woulda said bigger, but I think thats the limit for clearance or close to it..
