When the Camaro came out six years ago, it was fun to take it to shows as people were crazy for them then. Now even heavily modded, they seem quite common. The Z is something pretty unique, I have not seen one yet in the wild.
Take it and be prepared for all the attention it will get.

I had my 2015 Z/28 in a 600+ car cruise night/car show last weekend and there was a steady stream of people stopping to take pictures and ask questions. A surprising number of people know, and appreciate, what the Z/28 is all about.

I, too, have never seen a Z/28 (other than mine) in the wild.

I have had huge responses at a few shows and then a few duds...mostly old muscle car guys that think it's just a regular camaro...a new 5.0 mustang got more attention at one of these...I was surprised...I guess since it was new and mine looked like just a regular gen5 to the unknowing...and I think there are many vette guys that think they are da bomb in their z51s and have no idea either.

I can echo all of the responses. Last car show I put mine in, the guy judging stock category passed my car by because it looked modified. Lol. I was there for the company and to see all of the other cars.

I've done it, and had a great time doing it. People love to talk about it, I almost couldn't get away. Here's a pic of it at the show.

I was at a car show in May. There was a Z/28 and a ZL1 there both were White, both drew plenty of attention the ZL1 had a huge crowd around the entire day. It was surprising I heard many people saying they were aware of the Z/28 but was not aware of Chevy making a ZL1 even back in 1969. I think it will be a fun experience for you regardless!

Now that's how you showcase this car! Find another GM product with brakes the size of pizza pies, this is one very special model-a third of them are still sitting at dealers so there's very few of these on the road, you have the best color too!

Yes, I would do it. Contrary to what some of the haters on this forum believe and post, the Z/28 in most cases always draws a lot of attention at car events, even in stock form.

I've taken mine to several shows. Draws a big crowd. You'll have fun with it if you enjoy answering endless questions.

So took my z too the show had a good time but was shocked only about three or four people knew what they were looking at and none of them were judging lol got beat by a 2008 stang lol the only place it could ever beat it . Judge came too me and wanted too know what it was told him a z28 he put down just camaro . Most people really liked it especially the younger crowd had a few haters on how low it set and wanted too know what kinda body kit I put on it . So if I ever do this again or if anyone else takes the z I will would recommend you take something too show that it is production and factory . All said a lot of people came by and gave it a good look over

Glad you took it and generated more awareness. Perhaps the window sticker showing the myriad of options and MSRP will help to educate....

Probably should have mentioned that things also depend on the demographic of the spectators and who the judges are.
I've entered 100's of shows over the years and each one is different for what the crowds like.
1st show I took the z to, I had some guy call me a liar for telling him the brake rotors are factory. He really got upset about it.

Must have been one of those car shows for dummies.

The Z/28 is a rare bird.

The need to be seen in the wild more.
