Didn't ZL1 Camaros and L88 Corvettes best the Hemi's?

I gave up on collector cars a long time ago. You sit there and watch it for years. Bring it out for a concours every few years so people can oh and ah, and never really enjoyed it. Run the heck out of it. The smile factor will be much greater

Auctioning a car through eBay is simply a dealer's way of letting the market decide the final price. Note the two Z/28 auctions listed to date are "No Reserve," so just one bid over their posted price = Sold.

Other than that technicality, those two cars are sold, we just don't know for how much.

i no longer use ebay because of dreamers who click "buy it now" or bid up an item only to bail.

Then i have to deal with ebay to get fees removed and relist.

Those cars are not sold until money exchanges hands.

I can bid 85k on an ebay example and it doesnt mean i bought it. It could also mean the dealer has a second account and bid it up just to get the ball rolling.

The 426 HEMI super stockers came out in 64. They had a 3 year head start on the L88 and 5 years on the ZL1

I would expect an engine coming out years later to beat up on the HEMI



I also love the one of the lines from Two Lane Blacktop
"Hemi Cuda. Nothing there!"

The 2014 isn't sold out.

I went to one dealer and got a TPW of 6/9.

I didn't want to wait so 2 days later I put a deposit in car #27, and I was the first one to do it.

I predict they will make a lot less 2015's than everyone thinks.
I personally like this car better than the vette, although the vette is cheaper and way more popular.

I really don't know how or even if Chevrolet declared all the cars sold, when their customer is the dealer, and they have no idea who the dealer's customer is or if there even is one for the car. Where do these publications get their information?

I would speculate that it means that all dealer allocations for 2014 have been used.

What 5th Gen are you coming from to upgrade to the Z/28?

I tend to agree based on early dealer pricing. The next month will tell the story. If they sit on lots at MSRP, 2015 will be a short run.

Who is buying a $75000 Camaro ?

That looks like a billion other 25k Camaros ?

It looks different enough for me.
It is cool to me.
I want my #27 Black Camaro-----

I hope they don't build that many 15's although they will build as many as they have parts for.

The less 2015's there are---the more special my 2014 will be

I guess that's what a girl gets for HS graduation if her parents are wealthy?

Today, you can pick them up for $150-$250k based on latest Ebay SOLD prices. Hence, some people could have lost money on them.

So even they aren't necessarily collectible.

I would not be surprised if they go back under MSRP in the future due to the high production numbers. Very few modern cars ever become collectible.
yeah I dont see these being a collectors item with the new production rates in 2015. BUT I dont see them dipping below the $65k mark anytime soon. If they do then I might lined up to buy one

If you want a deal on a z28 wait till next generation comes out. At that point the 5th gen will take a huge hit.

Even supercars come down look at lamborghinis in price look at this one, this is one of many I saw.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lamborghini-...US_Cars_Trucks

just shy of 500HP, same price and in cali no gas guzzler tax because it can be picked up used. Big point is how much they dropped in price.
