Possible but not likely. At some point the CTFs will be out and about but even those wll be in Michigan and Canada. So just not very likely yet.

She most likely had a few extra and above her normal high octane drinks
Just a thought.

Is it possible she saw an SS with Z/28 badges bought off of Ebay?

I live near Oshawa where they are built...haven't seen one yet. From my understanding through someone who works on the assembly line at the Camaro plant, there are only a few prototypes floating around the plant...I haven't even seen a standard 2014 sitting around. I used to work for the shipping company and drove the cars from the plant to the rail yard...usually you would see a few new models tucked away in corners, but only on GM property...sometimes you see the new models with Michigan plates on them, but I haven't seen any new Camaros...probably will soon though as the shut down for the modle change over is only a few weeks away.

Not possible. The fact that you had to show her a pic tells me she doesn't know her cars as well as us lunatics do! lol She saw a white Camaro, maybe a ZL1 and thought it was a Z.

Anything is possible. That said there is a guy around here who has been running a 2010 SS that is heavily modified and badged as a Z/28 that is oddly similar in style. Has been that way for at least 2yrs now.

I would love to see one in the wild. I am guessing that Cali is a little far from Michigan and Canada for them to be running around. And like most topics on this forum...it didn't happen without pics!

I'm going with 99.99% not possible, unless The One and only Z/28 made it from Indy to there after Sunday by Monday. That's the only way.

How can I say The Only One, because when I was in Atlanta this weekend I went up to Fbodfather and said "Where is the Z/28, I know you brought one." He said "No there is only one and it is in Indy where there are more people."

Well, the Z/28 is supposed to be fast...maybe it's really, really fast.

It was probably an LS Camaro with Black steelies. They all look the same to non-gearheads!

I saw someone post this pic on Facebook. I don't think it's a Z/28. Maybe a 1LE? Either way it could be mistaken for one.

The person who posted the pic should have been able to tell if it was a 2014 1LE or a 2014 Z/28 by the thickness of the rear glass, right?
