Very true.

Every Gen had a Z28, so should the 5Gen.
I say let the 5Gen and the LS7 go out with a bang!!! Build a LS7/Z28 or a Z28/LS7 either works for me.

I guess Im just naive or something, but I cant believe the 5th generation is only going to be 5 years when the last 3 were 10+ years, kinda sucks IMO.

Not to sound pessimistic but perhaps the Z-28 will be Chevy's mid-range Camaro model to compete with the Challenger R/T and the Mustang GT. A smaller V8 motor, a little less hp, and bigger fuel economy.

I think I just messed myself...

Gosh, the thoughts of a Silverado-inspired 5.3 have me... apoplectic...

Wait, there's always the 4.8...or maybe we just need better Windex for the crystal ball.

A DI 5.3 will work perfectly in "my" Z28. And since i know that GM cares about the heritage and enthusiast side of the house, i know they wont disappoint! Clamour on all you want about the LS7, with that it makes an already hardly possible version of the camaro even more expensive and less possible. Get your heads out of the clouds!!

Not in' the clouds. If you look at other Z28 threads good arguments are made supporting the LS7.

I know i have read all the threads, making a thousand 45-50 grand Z/28's will in by no means make the car any cheaper. The LS7 adds 15 grand to the car easy

I'm not supporting the idea of an economy Z28, I'm just saying that if we are reliving the old days (70's) with high gas prices and now a bad economy, GM might pull something like this off. I am not hoping so by any means. I prefer the economy to shape up and today's muscle cars to keep improving, including bigger motors with bigger power. We'll just have to see.

Ummm ... doesn't GM already have a Camaro to compete with those cars in the SS?

It adds 15 grand to a car that doesn't already have an engine. There is already around $7000 worth of LS3 (or L99) under the hood of the SS.
