So, 1500 per year, that is the first time I've heard "limited production" from an official source. At the release they said no limits, so that is an officially new revelation. 1500 is a bunch of Camaros compared to say GT2RS/GT3RS 4.0 at 500 cars each worldwide, but still a "limit" will be creation of scarcity and scarcity is a primary determinant of value, so dealers will be adding markups. If you are a serious Z/28 buyer you'd better sign a purchase order now noting your price or don't come whining about getting gouged.

The idle at approx 12:00 sure sounds nasty (in a good way).
Just my $.02....Jay is a collector for sure....don't know where he heard the 1500 made from, but it sounded like Al didn't want to get into all that with him while driving....lol....I'm thinking the "limit" will be how many of the available/smog legal or whatever LS7s they can get their hands on for the builds....Also I think Al was a little sheepish/demure on the pricing, and didn't want to raise Jay's gigantic eyebrows with the real price...lol...

Seemed Al wanted to emphasize the availability of the Z/28 parts....maybe that's something that might help keep the price of the car down a tad, but I doubt it...

Last thing, Jay kept saying it felt like a "muscle-car"....In my book a muscle car didn't handle worth a darn, was overweight in the front, and just made to go a 1/4 mile at a time....not quite what the Z/28 is...lol...

Jay says, "Go for a test drive, I think you'll be impressed". I wonder how many dealers are going to hand out test drives of the Z28 ? !!

Jay Leno thinks he's middle-aged?

So he can still be funny.

The best part of that whole thing for me was hearing Jay say this. I don't know how any aftermarket company could improve on this. Except for maybe something illegal like a chip.

Would that be Pringles? Doritos or maybe even some Jays?

LMAO

IMO The best part of these You Tube vids are the trolls who post ridiculous nonsense about mismatched paint, doors and emblems not lining up on a pre-production car. Esp. from the Ford fanboys and the anti-GM crowd that claim to hate GM and Chevy yet miraculously appear on every GM/Chevy video on You Tube.

Speaking of Z/28 parts, would a 427 "bolt-up" right into a SS Camaro, including the transmission?
