Wait until you join the 60+ club like some of us here, it keeps getting more frequent! The plus side to that is that I can dream about the good old days and a nice first gen. Z/28 and if I drift out of conversations or chat rooms, I can simply blame it on being old and nobody thinks badly of me for that.

I believe everyone is in unison when I say that the Z28 has to be a very unique vehicle. It can certainly draw parts and information from ZL1 and Corvette but it needs to be its own car that can be marked as the best Z28 of all time.

The LS7 quite simply has to be the heart and soul of the Z28. Anything else will dilute the marque.

Use the performance parts that were developed for the ZL1:
Front spitter, Lower front bumper with brake cooling ducts, Shock tower cross brace, 6 Piston front/4 Piston rear Brembos with the 2 pc. rotors, beefed up suspension components BUT NOT the MR system, upgraded transmissions both TR6060 and Automatic, Short-Shift Shifter, Dual mode exhaust, Beefed up ZL1 rear end.

This car HAS to have better seats. The Recaros used in the Boss 302 are the best for a reason. Use them! Because the Magnetic Shocks are not race accepted, pull the Pedders coil overs off of the GMPP shelf and put them on the Z28.

Use the 19" wheels from the CTS-V and put 285 tires on all four corners. Put a heat extractor hood on the car, either a variant of the ZL1 or Jay Leno hood. Use the upgraded HUD from the ZL1. Change the gauge faces to red like the ones used on the Camaro Black edition.

The hard part will be keeping the car in the $42,000 to $45,000 range with the above parts. But whatever you do, DO NOT dilute the name Z28 just to make a car. If the decision is made to build a Z28, then make it right and make it worthy of the name Z28.

My best guesstimate is 1SS + 1LE (HD drivetrain/hardware/rolling-stock/body, excluding heated leather) = $40-42,000 ($8-10K); as a 2SS, mid-$40s. Multi-adjustable coddling Recaros: $2.5-4K. LS7 = $7K.

So...2SS + 1LE + Recaros + LS7 = ZL1 $hekel$, give or take (LSA "crate" = LS7 "crate")

And 1SS + 1LS Trim/Seats + 1LE + LS7 = Base Z/28 = $47,500...+ Recaros (only) = $51,500
