it may have an "F" in the vin for sentimental purposes, but it is not an fbody. the fbody is dead.

Twin is right, G8 is the closest to the new Camaro and I don't think you'll find an "F" in the 4th digit of the VIN.

2010 Camaro SS
Power = 426 fwhp
Weight = 3860 lb
Ratio = 0.11 hp/lb

02-04 C5 Z06
Power = 405 fwhp
Weight = 3116 lb
Ratio = 0.13 hp/lb

Also the C5Z has better gearing.

A C5Z will run low to mid 12 sec stock with crappy tires and that's just in a straight line. The two cars are in a completely different class and I don't think anyone would cross shop either of the two. In the end both cars are bad arse and will be for many years to come.

Corvette's are king of the hill because they should be, GM has never looked back since the 50's with the Vette. Like the others said Corvette = Permium Sports Car & Camaro = Muscle Car

Yes you can. I cross shopped my 03 cobra with the 02-04 Z06 and in the end (obviously) picked the Cobra.

If they were the same $$, I would have taken the vette most likely. But weighing out the positives, I chose the Cobra.
