I bought the worst performance year Corvette, 1975, as my first Brand New car. Drove it for 2 years, put 19,000 miles on it, damn near waxed/rubbed the paint off. NEVER rained on. Sold it (remember, the most gutless "modern" Vette produced) in '77 for EXACTLY what I paid for it...because a new '77 was $2 Gs more.

My first '10 Camaro I bought in Sept/09 (emp. disc.), drove it all winter, sold it this time of year '10 for what it cost me. Many others did the same.

"Supply vs. Demand", a very basic tenet of our western economy...

Buying new vehicles does NOT have to cost you an arm 'n a leg...

...my thoughts. Same kind of release like the ZL1. Uber crazy attraction, even more than the ZL1, without the promo hype. It's going to sell itself based on it's own merit without commercials and onboard film clips. The price, and availability....there's another matter. Spring only availability for 2014, and one full year for 2015. Wixom has or is in the process of moving to Bowling Green. Hand bulit powerplants take alot of time to make. Low numbers, low allocations, and pricey I am affraid... a tall order to be the guy to get one. I don't have enough juice, or fight left in me, to try to be that golden guy with an allocation.

...very true my friend. And I thought I fought a long, hard seemingly endless fight to be the guy to get an allocation for a ZL1<that was rough>.....I could write a book on the hoops of fire I went through on that matter. That in comparison is going to be childs play compared to what it will take to get a Z/28.

I believe it will hold it value as well. The Camaro already is one of the best in that category.

Very true, these are the best of times, and offer the best of Camaro's we have ever been fortunate enough to have seen in our lifetime.

Yes as much as I've always loved the 69' I'd never buy one before the new Z28 or ZL1.

...funny you mentioned that. When I bought my 2002 SS 35th Anniversary Camaro back when I coulda bought a '69 Z/28 for the same price. And I asked myself why? For investment? I did all that back when, drove that stuff, endured the scene because we had to. I like new and easy modern/comfy over old and unreliable/harsh relics. Why go back in time when one has been there. I'm not in this for the long haul, heck I ain't gonna live forever, and am not doing it for future growth on investment. I am in it for the adrenaline and the rush of driven the livin' daylights out of it....hahah....

Anybody else feel sorry for the Ford guys.... would love to see what is on their drawing board.... how much longer can the escalation continue? Also what part of the Z/28 will be/ was subsidised by the soaring 5th Gen sales?

So glad the 5th Gen got the Z/28. This group of owners deserves it. Even if almost none of us will breathe that rarified Z air.

...Ford? Never really considered that.....Camaro we bleed Chevy Bowtie blood...., and I for one don't consider the other....it's about us, and our brand. The competition will ensue no doubt, but as far as technology, inovation, and advancement goes, Chevy is on a roll.

The Z/28 is here and it exceeds , expectations. I commend the Camaro TEAM and Mr. Reuss for building the baddest axx Z/28 in Chevrolet's history. We are not going to let them rest on their laurels, are we?

I went on SVT Performance and was reading a thread they had. It was mostly the general fan boy responses about the Camaro being for hillbillies with a mullet and the Camaro being a fat pig or how it takes GM 7.0 liters to make 500 HP.
