These guys may be right; maybe just add a subsection in the SS section for the 1LE?

It's true that the 1LE is a go, and the Z/28 is still rumor & speculation. Once the car is built it will need it's own area, may as well do it now.

Its a package on the SS, should be a subforum under the SS forum. Otherwise, you either need to have a separate 1LE forum, or lump all the performance optioned Camaro's under one forum (Z28, ZL1, 1LE) and then under that heading have a separate sub forum for each model.

JMVHO.
Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding.........We have a winner!! Those are my sentiments exactly, a SS option/package needs to stay with the SS forum.

Chevy says the 1LE is faster than the Boss at VIR.

The 1LE is no SS imposter. Option or not. Merge the topics.

For me with no announcement, why is there a Z28 section?

Although I do like the section there has been nothing new for quite a while. Merging it with the iLE will keep it fresh.

Just like before the 1LE is for the trackies, not the posers.

Given the news about the 1LE, today....how would members react to altering this section's name - for now - to "Camaro 1LE/Z28 Forum - 1LE/Z28 Specific Topics"? I ask because, honestly, at this point I don't see a need for ANOTHER section for the 1LE...it's so young, yet. But it might be nice to have a place to focus the conversations...

Thanks for your input!
You don't see a need? There is no Z28 yet, why is this here? This should be a rumors section.

I understand the passion for the Z28. But only because of the Gen 1s. The later Z28s were just V8 Camaros.

But if the 1LE is faster than the LS Boss at least at VIR, what is the point of the Z28?

Give the 1LE it's own section and let the Z/28 dreamers keep the dreamers section.

Fbodfather said the 1LE wasn't quite worthy of the Z/28 name.

Well unlike you, I don't think I want to listen to the constant stream of SS/1LE buyers and wannabes "why is there no auto tranny, they should have that to include everyone", etc. By your logic there should have never been a Z/28-ZL1 forum up until the moment there was an announcement, that's a little bit of a short sited view isn't it?? And since the real Z/28 heritage lives only in the first gen. Camaros (since you said that didn't apply to other gens) there should not be a Z/28 forum?? Can I ask why you are even on this site? Wouldn't you be more comfortable on the official GM after announcement sites? Just wondering since you seem to be so full of negativity for this site in general and this forum in particular.
