Like seen in photo below. Did you have to mold it as well or how to get custom shape
Looks as if ends or edges raised slightly in opening. Looks good.

i know u didn't include my name but , ehhh being nosey time id personally say follow what your really thinking about , if your such an addict for camaros and you don't feel like changing , id say go with the z/28 , its one hell of a beast and it will also be something special on the streets rather than just seeing a c7 that soon most people would own , i really like the c7 too , but the z/28 is just one hell of a beast even though i don't like the rear end that much .

Lol its cool bro you're not being nosey, this is the kind of feedback I need !!! Now I'm leaning 60% on the z28 because you're right everyone soon will have a vette but not many will have the beast z28

Trust me, I LOVEEE Camaros. However, I would chose the Vette without a doubt. Sure, the Camaro Z28 will be unique because not many are being made. However, the Z28 has been heavily modified to run how it does. Let's face it, you are going to mod the C7, so that alone will make it unique. Ask yourself, did anyone have a Camaro that looked like yours? No, they didn't . If anyone could chose a better platform to run, hands down a vette would be where it's at. Much less work is needed to get Vettes to run like champs, and they are a true 2 seater sports car. It's light, fast, and technolically advanced. Plus, you'll be WAY ahead of the design refresh time frame. The vette just came out. The Z28 will be the old body style in another year or two. I would get the Vette hands down, and this is coming from someone who is obsessed with Camaro's.

Damn it Tommy now I'm 50/50 again lol, I guess it's going to come down to availability, if the z28 is going to be limited that means huge mark up from dealers, although the dealer I'm working with won't mark it up because I've been a loyal customer for so long, but I'm afraid GM will pull the same crap with allocations and who knows if I'll be able to get one. I'll put the deposit on the Vette for now and if I do change my mind I'm sure my dealer will let me use that deposit towards the z28 since I'm sure they won't have a hard time selling the Vette

Look Leo ,Tommy is right about the vette ,i know for a fact that you will transform that vette into a beast that will look like no other and that's because of your unique taste in modding ,sure the Z28 is a tough beast but IMHO the rear taillights suck and the new vette is super cool in every aspect and imagine it after you've modded it heavily, Tommy is also right that the Z28 is already modded and you don't have much to work on so my advice to you is to go with the vette if you wanna have fun modding and transforming it into a Diablo .

The z28 will be unique, rare, etc, and have more power than the vette.

But the vette is lighter, and in all honesty, looks better. I love camaros (even the 2014's), but that vette looks just as good, if not better than a bunch of ferrari and lambo models. Its freaking amazing in person.

Not to mention the updated interior!

What are the prices of the two with the options you would want?

Another thing, the camaro is still based off of a 2009/2010 design. The corvette is 100% new everything, frame, suspension, engine, interior, etc etc.

Me personally, Id keep my camaro for a few more years, and then get a vette. Im not ready to leave the camaro world. But ive only had my camaro since mid-2012.

They're only making 1500 Z28's, and they're being built as 95% Track cars, no AC, no radio, no sunroof, they're going to cost more than the ZL1 and with the limited number (1500) the dealers will be taking orders from the rich & famous to add to their collections. GM will be making the Z28 performance parts available in the catalog for SS's. I wouldn't even consider a Z28 and I had 2 of them back in the 80s, but they had T-Tops & were loaded, this new Z28 is a whole different animal, you might as well just consider buying a ZL1, as you'd have a better chance of seeing it or you can buy the ZLX and blow all 3 away (sorry for the shameless plug)



And besides, where's the baby seat going in the Vette?

Now back to your normally scheduled broadcast:



Hi Pierre, my friend sorry I've been gone for so long, but life got in the way, and I dropped the ball forgetting where my friends were. So I'm back for good, my brotha and your whip looks fantastic as always! Your skills are endless, I love what you did with the sound system, I had to pay an asshole to do mine! I wish I had those skills to do more work on my beast, instead of having to pay to have it done. Keep up the great work amigo!

Dude Im going to have to go with the Z/28...Lets face it we all love both of them. We are all Camaro fanatics and the new vette is so sexy. IMO you can mod a vette but you can mod it to the point of our camaros it still always looks like a vette the Z/28 is more rare and here we are 4 to 5 years down the road and we all are still in love with our camaros. The vette is like the new shiny toy and lets face it the 60 year old plus crowd are going to all have them in their driveways with their golf clubs in the back on the way to the country club. The z/28 is a legend and will remain that way for a long time now. But just like everyone else giving their input here, what comes down to is YOU. what do YOU want.

Either way you cant go wrong
