I think too there is a false assumption that deleting items will reduce cost...All I hear is that to offer items as options, is actually more expensive to accomplish now on the assembly line, than it is to just include them...lol...

I think they're all in for a surprise over there...seems like the common belief for a price is around 50K...don't think so...lol...

Anyway, rear seat delete came this week, so dropping another 35 to 40lbs off my Camaro...

I can't wait to see one in person though....
I know your happy. To many other folks on the forum just have to get the next thing that comes along because the WOW factor overcomes the brain factor.Especially when they cant afford it, but its their life.

Read somewhere here that in NewYork it was said the Z28 will be the most expensive Camaro made, so there you are..

I just read on the Z28 this morning and its going to be nice, but now that I hear the rumors on price, the 1LE is plenty for most of us.
That LS7 motor sure sounds good though.

And 60 treadwear on the 305's that stick out a country mile.
And $6000 Recaro's to. Dont like the crushed front end much and definately not the back or fender flares. And whats with the rocker panel shape? Didnt get a close look but will watch the vid tonight.

Better news Off tomorrow and new wheels go on in the a.m.
