I thought I read there are some different spoiler options on the car... some you can adjust to add downforce.

I love the new taillights... they look more like the original '69 design. I just don't like the unpainted portion under the taillights... I never liked unpainted bodywork. At least on the Z28, it's painted.

You could always just replace the rear with the 2010-13 rear and tails. I'm guessing if someone could swing the +$75k for a Z28 then they could probably swing the maybe $4k it would cost (not factoring any money made from selling the Z28 parts removed) , but I guess it depends on how much you really want it.

You buy what you like correct? You want a back up camaraderie or you want two doors or a hardtop or convertible. What ever you buy you buy because you like it correct? Enough said.

I hear what you are saying and that is an option, but then it wouldn't be original. I wanted it but since the change I'll wait to we the next gen.

I was more wondering where the z-28 was? I think FBodFather put out an article on the importance of the Z/28 name and why it was not called a z-28, Z28, or any other form of letters and numbers...just saying! Bwahahahaha!!!!

Nope, nope, nope...the marking z-28 is NOWHERE on the car...research the reason for the "/" and not the "-"...there is no dash mark on the car...slash for a reason. Maybe you didn't know.

The Z/28 has never had a - between the Z and the 28, it's always been either Z/28 or Z28..

Spoiler thing is not that bad to me. No real street necessity though.




The way these cars look is absolutely paramount for most people. When I walk up to my car and walk away from it, the way it looks when I see it is half the enjoyment of the car. So, yes, tail lights can be a deal breaker. Even with the loss of some of the luxuries inside, the car looks amazing with it's stance and those wheels but those tail lights are hideous to many. Me included.

I can absolutely see it as a deal breaker to some. There are other track cars out there.

Personally I would not let it deter me from buying a Camaro but I'd choose a ZL1 over it because of the tails. BUT I seriously doubt GM is worried about moving the Z28s. hahaha

the orginal white Z/28 had the emblem on the rear... is it gone for production?

from what i read, half the Camaro team wanted Z28, half wanted Z/28. chief engineer wanted Z/28... so guess who won?

as you should know, it's just an RPO code right? should just be Z28... same as Z51, ZL1, 1LE, LS3, L88, L89, L71, L82, M22, L98, LT1, ZZ4, LT4, ZR1, Z06

Isn't that wicker bill the "spoiler extension" that was talked about in the parts thread? I don't know, wasn't paying much attention.

While the fact that those that want the car and got allocations will be able to get theirs is fantastic, I'm glad it's them and not me.

As cool as the Z/28 is, I don't have it on my list of must haves, so I'm not worried that I probably wouldn't be getting an allocation. The car doesn't fit in my usage category. Besides, I'd be so freaked out about taking it out anywhere without some ass clown running into it or someone messing with it.

It's a special purpose car that's going to be a track warrior's happiness. Please enjoy responsibly.

Not exactly. The slash represents the performance of the 67-69 Z/28's. The 70 1/2 wasn't too bad either, but after that the Z28 (no slash no dash) was just fake scoops, decals with no horsepower and only slightly better handling. I should know...my 78 and 79 Z28's were just that. Heck my 68 327 would blow both of my Z's into the ditch.

I think a better explanation is trans am racing support was withdrawn and smog emissions hit hard after 1970.

I don't buy this slash story. I could make up some similar story that the 63-67 Sting Ray is super special because it's two words... and the later 68-75 and current Stingrays are crap It was just some market people's decision... then people make up special stories afterwards.

To me the original Z28 was a nice handling car with decent power for a small block, but it was no ZL1 or Yenko. When you think of 60's cars, when was the last time you heard "I really want a 302!!!" It's a gem of an engine but everybody loves the big blocks. I think there are several better GM small blocks put in corvettes... early LT1's, 327 fuelies.

I really think the current ZL1 should be the top dog... and the Z28 should be a lightweight handling package with some extra power (basically a 1LE with 25 extra HP) for maybe $5k or so extra. Not a $40k option.
