Theft of the Z28 name aside ... intake, exhaust, & tune, and they claim +104 hp?

Would that be dealer performance package ZEE-28 ?
You could buy a base model and build your own. It will hold the same value as a dealer package, and you can brag about the customizations as your own idea.
Or wait for the real deal.

I can see the use of the name being BS but why can't the dealer do this? Isn't this what Yenko and Motion did back in the 60's and now those car cross the auction block with massive premiums? isn't it similar or am I missing something?

The difference is guys like Yenko made their own name by what they where doing with cars. This dealer is using a name that is trademarked by GM and he really has no right to put it on a car and sell it. I'd be surprised if that dealer doesn't get into trouble for using that name.

You are missing a few things. Yenko, Balwin, etc. were not slapping GM's emblems on a Camaro and calling it that, they were Yenko versions, Baldwin versions, etc. If this dealer in SC wants to do this, call it a special version by "dealer name", not call it a Z/28. What this dealer is doing is totally wrong, unethical, and unlawful. I for one would hope that the dealer will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the applicable laws.

Those were custom dealer versions of the Camaro. Not fake production Z/28s the dealer is using to rip people off.
