I like the new color. Put a blower on top and it's good to go.

Not crazy about the look of that hood heat extractor, looks too small. The parts in the car are awesome. To bad you couldn't get it with the 13 body style

My only complaint is the no stereo option or one speaker how ever they want to market it. I like to cruise with music on the street. I know it's suppose to be a track car. But zero tracks in Calgary.

You're making a pretty big assumption............that we'll even be able to get one here in Canada.

Most likely it will be like the ZL1's, only a handful stay here in Canada. Of course if your not opposed to buying a used ZL1, the dealers have a number of "US Cars" available here in the GTA....selling for their original sticker price WTFE!

Apparently there is talk of special RPO (CUSTRAPEKT) on the Z/28. Anyone thinking of purchasing a Z/28 would be well advised to consider adding this to their order.

I think it is a great car. However for a daily driver it won't be worth it IMO. It is definitely a track car, but the ZL1/2SS will be much better for the daily driver.

And those brakes are going to be very expensive to get fixed/repaired when the time comes.

Apparently, the Z/28 is going to be priced over the ZL1!

If they crew up the 6th Gen, let's get ready to kiss the Camaro good-bye....FOREVER! This is MY OPINION! (everyone is entitled, even if you don't agree).

I don't mind the screw ups, it makes my "early production" more valuable, as time goes by.

Well Frank they had to get the Zed built before the end of the 5th Gen. They had already laid the ground work for the drive train with the ZL1, HP will be comparable so they know it will handle it. Had a bunch of LS7 that weren't going to get used in the Vette's anyway.

Spend a little on a redesign rear and front cones, plastic fender flares, cut a hole in the hood and place a heat extractor. It will be a limited run anyway and if the price comes in above the ZL1, that will be a good thing.

Just my 5 cents worth, don't dislike it, just not sure that it is deserving of the Z/28 moniker.

While I like most of the MODS done to this (SS)/Z28 , I believe that the design model of 1st or 2nd gen Z28, especially my fav 81 model, would have provided me a lot more drooling.

However I may just have to trade up for the new Zed later this year and add all the missing details of my SSlike a radio .....maybe!
