Forgive the newb Z28 question, but when do we think the Z will hit the streets?


EDIT: I found it...

Quote:
During the Frankfurt Motor Show, representatives from General Motors confirmed suspicions of the Camaro Z28 being built and sold sometime in late 2011.

Not very convenient considering the Z28 was basically completed earlier this year but was put on hold when GMs financial health dropped to an all-time low.

I think GenV DI will be the big news. It was good to hear the Vette is back on track.

Good food. We've been looking for a good "authentic" Mexican restaurant. We had one pretty close that we would stop and have a couple of margaritas each and nachos and out the door for 20 bucks. But they closed. And it was probably because of the $2 margaritas.

Food was good but ummmmmmmmmmm Margartias were 8.50. So we broke our personal rule of alcohol being more than half the bill.

Not top shelf, but they were BIG. 16 oz. I think. And they were....................not stingy on the tequila if you know what I mean.

Um...this is an original...never done it before, either. Freaked me the hell out. Usually...I'm dying in my nightmares...cliffs, drowning, walls, cars, trains....They say that if you DON'T wake up before "impact", then your nightmare will kill you, physically....luckily, I haven't had that issue, yet.
