Love the Z but we could be looking at a $70k Camaro. That would make it a .2% car.

.2% probably... that thing is the true beast... I predict that you saw a 65000 dollar car today. Best part for us 1LE guys will be the parts bin!!

I'll take that spoiler with a quickness

good point about the cost...from what i read, it sounds like this would be my reaction to the price of any of the new stuff

I also like my car and it's comforts, but I could really get into those Z/28 brakes, and seats. A black hood with vent is an item to consider down the road. First for me is the cam/heads swap, hopefully by summer.

Maybe a $80k 1.5% car that is worth every penny.

The 2014 rear deck lid has a 'bump' in it to house the third tail light. To use the Z/28 rear spoiler requires you also update the deck lid.

The aero you see on the Z/28 is only part of the story. There is more under car work. The guys on the Camaro TEAM are not standing pat. They took everything they learned on the ZL1 and found ways to improve it.

The Z/28 may be the best 'parts car' ever built by Chevrolet

Did you guys help with the suspension on the Z28? Or did they do it in house? GM has been pretty good at outsourcing lately it seems. I was wondering if this car was the same way.

Mark Steilow is the engineer that is responsible for the Z/28 suspension. He doesn't need my help. That said, on his way to winning the OPTIMA last year he may have noticed Raymond's Performance Camaro and the Lingenfelter L/28 along the way :-)

I don't doubt that its worth every penny in the $65-75k range and I'm really happy they brought it back...but I have no use for a "track-only" car, and the 2SS/1LE was at the upper limit of my financial comfort zone. If you want a good laugh, read some of the Z threads and how many people are bitching about how much was stripped out of the car...they don't get it...or how expensive it is...they asked for an LS7 that'll blow things away on the track, GM delivered exactly that. They thought they'd get all that for cheap?

Anyway, just got home from work, time to polish the baby up!

I have been laughing at those threads too. I will be enjoying my 1LE. I have no problems missing the boat on this one. I know it is an awesome car. I am ecstatic that Chevy built it. But I think it could have been styled better, cost too much money, and its too specialized of a track weapon for me.

The funnier thing to me is the guys who swear up and down that the tail lights are just like the '69. Sorry but not even close. I get the lenses are the same pattern but the 69 didn't wrap the corne. Sorry

This shows the bump for the third tail light in the 14 deck lid.

That bump destroys the lines. Don't like. Still like the spoiler tho...at least, more than what's on mine.
