Brother in Law ran the Boston Marathon today. Luckily he is pretty fast and crossed 45 minutes ahead of the detonation.

Sad day for sure. Big House of Z prayers to those that lost a loved one and those that were injured.

It makes one so angry! A little 8 year old boy was killed.

Nice find! I think its the suspension flexing in the corner. That front is MUCH more aerodynamic looking.

Likely a video pre NY Auto Show. Once it's shown to the public they generally take off the Camo. In some cases though, I think it's a pain in A$$ to take of the tape. Note the front and rear lamps are now exposed.

Is there or will there be a possibility of GM releasing a video like they did for the ZL1 on the 'ring?

I would bet on it. GM seems to do that fairly regularly on the cars they run there.

I'm guessing we'll see the C7 coming up and maybe the new CTS as well.

My Zbrothers,
Just in case one cannot be obtained...based on what we know, what would it take to build up a 1LE to a Z/28? It goes without saying the Pedders suspension would be used instead of a stock Z/28 one (right Pete?).


Thanks guys

IMO, it just wouldn't be the same. With that said, I would think at minimum, a $30,000 investment. You'd have to order the 427 crate motor, the CC brakes and the necessary suspension components not included with the 1LE. Got to include the cost of installation and tuning, tweaking etc. Then there's the aero parts, paint. Ouch, not an easy endeavor to say the least. Base 1SS is 37K + 30K +5K(for unknown incedentals)= 72K. You can always recoup some of the investment by selling unused parts, LS3,susp.,etc.

This is one of those questions that requires a little more detailed information to answer completely.

I'll answer this way. This assumes that you leave the brakes and seats alone. If I were the occasional track type, say 3-5 times per year I would build as follows.

Headers, Mid build Cam (Livernois 2C), CAI, Custom Cal, goal of 445 to the wheels.

Pedders Supercar Coilovers as part of Camaro Justice Package

I think this would be a pretty kick butt setup for the average guy.

You can't really make a Z/28 from a 1LE but this would be a pretty awesome 1LE.
