Poll: will you be ordering a Z/28 -- and will you track it?

A lot of folks are questioning the Z/28's very direct focus on track usage. So, I decided to throw a little poll into the mix. I realize you can't formally order these cars yet, but I'm first on my dealer's list. Here goes...

If I bought one I would track it, but I am not buying one.

If you buy one of these beasts, you must track it. Don't think I'll buy one though. I think I'll grab a used ZL1.

Just for the record, I will be tracking mine about 75% of the time. Another 20% will be driving to the track. The remaining 5% will be pleasure use on the street...

Not that I'm in a position to buy one right now, but if I were, I'd DEFINITELY track it ... as much as possible!!! But based on my own track record (ha, ha, ha, ............shameless pun!) I only do a handful of track days a year anyway, compared to daily driving whatever car I've got, so even though I voted 20% - 40%, I'd probably be hard pressed to exceed ~20% of the car's driving being on-track.

If I could AFFORD it, the car would be ~60% - 80% track use, but still get plenty of fun street miles in too .

I already have 4 cars in my driveway . 5 will just enhance the driveway "not itentionally bragging, Rather informing" and hell yeah I'm tracking . Not to mention The huge activity that takes place here at least 1 a month . I'll just park it outside someone's venue for stares and pics.

I already have 5-cars, I have no case for getting a 6th DD car unless it is only for my track hobby.

Thus the Z28 would be on dedicated race rubber (1/2 the cost) trailered to track.

My justification to my wife would be to have fail safe brakes when going 140-mph (she is not interested in me getting a $ 1-mil insurance policy instead)

So, I will be the odd one here. I would buy one and hold on to it (a few cruise weekends here and there but no track).

My reason: I have a strong feeling that we are in a very short window of a muscle car renaissance. With the CAFE standards coming in a couple years and GM stating this is going to be a limited production run Camaro, this may be a car worth having a 4-5 years when the only thing you can get in a Camaro is a turbo 6cyl that looks like it belongs in a Toyota.

If the COPO would have been street legal (and they made a few more than 69 of them) I would have been in line for that for the same reason. Cars are most always a horrible investment but this one MIGHT be different.
