Thank you for your support.

I was wondering when you and Lowdown would appear........

"(we assume it has the ZL1 drivetrain)!"- just to clarify, that would be ZL1 drivetrain minus the LSA engine.

The disciples may also want to remind GM/Chevy that there are a lot of Z/28 diehards that have been waiting for a loooooooong time. The following photoshop was done at my request at least four or five years ago.

Hello Janet,

We have spent countless hours discussing the 5th Gen Z/28 with our friends here on Camaro5. The wheel and tire package should be square -- the same size front and rear. While many would really like to see our 305/30/19 package or something close to it would be good.

Please let all the disciples know how much we appreciate their work on the 5th Gen and look forward to the results of you hard work on the 6th Gen.

Hi Janet,
I know the LS7 has been mentioned, but I want to chime in here so that you realize it's not just a few people that seek the LS7 in a camaro. There are many, and it would make the Z28 a very special car. I can afford a new SS now, but am holding out for an LS7 Z28. I've been looking at the tuner cars that offer an LS7 conversion (And have driven several), and they are most likely a bit out of my reach right now money wise. An LS7 built camaro from GM would fit many more buyers budgets.

If the LS can not be included in a standard configuration camaro, (IE All Z28's get an LS7), then make it an option I can order with a check box on the order form for a new camaro. GM has many great performance parts available for the camaro, Going with the "check Box" option would allow buyers to build their dream car as they want it. IE --
Check box to add the LS7
Check Box to add ZL1 Drivetrain & Coolers.
Check Box to add Pedders Supercar Coilover Suspension
You get the idea... The more options we can choose from the better.
I'm sure others will post the ideal car we seek in a Z28, but those 3 above are often key options mentioned in the past.

Many here, including me, seek a 5th Gen Z28, but it must be worthy of the Z28 name, not just an SS/LS3 with a few extra bolt on's & Z28 badges, but a real street/track performer.

Thanks
John

To me the 1LE as is is pretty close to being worthy of Z28. That's assuming the trans, clutch and rear end are upgraded. I think an LS3 would be fine and if there is a way to mildly bump horsepower I'm all for it. I would love a Camaro with an LS7 but I personally believe it would be hard to build without approaching ZL1 cost. I love the SS but would like something a little more. What I don't want is another supercar Camaro for me to read about and admire without being able to purchase.

The LS3 1LE is not going to do 1320 ft any faster than our SS cars and if we wanted to track our cars, we could Pedderize an SS for cheaper then the LS3 1LE would be priced at. Need the LS7 with the Z/28 badge......

One thing that concerns me is that if a Z/28 does not come out for the 2013 model year and the 1LE does then I have to ask if they are going to bother at all to build a Z/28 for the 5th gen. Assuming that the 6th gen comes out in 2015 as a 2016 model, we are running out of time.

Even if they did, how would a Z/28 differ from a 1LE or a ZL1? The Corvette guys pretty much let it slip that the LS7 won't be around for the C7 Corvette (next year) so if ever there was a time to pursuade the engineering powers that be to hold on to the LS7 until the end of the 5thgen, now is the time to put that engine into a camaro.

I would say no MRC on the Z28, it saves us money not to have it since it is not race legal.

What's the price point people are thinking here? The ZL1 is already far beyond the reach of many.

This one is easy:

1. Put the car on a serious diet.
2. Build a Z28 using the LS7.
3. Give the ZL1 forged engine internals.
4. Please lose the 20" wheels on any Z28.
5. Include the ZL1 trans/rear end in any Z28.
6. Please listen the the guys who are racing these cars.....don't forget the people who put Camaro on the map.
