It will be interesting to see if parts and repairs are more similar to Chrysler or Ferrari.

Having driven several road course ready street car Camaros I believe I have a very good idea of what the Z/28 is like on track. The last Alfa I drove was built in 1983.

On the other hand, The T2 Solstice GXPs were AWESOME at track ready weights of about 3,100. SCCA Club Racing 2007 National Championship Runoffs the Pontiac Solstice GXP placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in Touring 2 (T2) and the Pontiac Solstice placed first place in Showroom Stock B (SSB) even after being penalized 200 lbs between the 2006 and 2007 seasons. Those GMPP tuned GXPs were a bit over 300 HP.

The Alpha will be a few ponies short, but almost 1,000 pounds lighter. The initial allocations are so small I doubt I'll get a chance to get behind the wheel for some time, but I am intrigued by the HP / weight.

Turbo four rumored to be at 250 HP. Breathing on it will bring it to 300+. It weighs 1,873 pounds. Ready for the track with driver 2,163 pounds. That is 1,850 pounds less than a Z/28 fueled with driver.

Discuss.
Just waiting on that price in US dollars

I don't think my feet will fit either. It is a VERY small car.

Alpha's ...meh...., never really cared for them...always were a back of the pack Euro performer to me in my mind, it's tiny...and clostrophobic. They just don't have the Italian chic. Just sayin'..I put them in Fiat's catagory. But that's just me being me....

Thet get sucked up the banking when they are either off the rear corner of another ride or too close proximity of another in a large pack. Not a driver issue, just plain physics. It was uncanny to watch the slo-mo. They get swept up like leaf's in the wind. It happened several times with big wrecks towards the end. Not bonehead driver mistakes....just the forces at play on the cars. Amazing. Jr was dominant.... and Jeff and Jimmy helped him keep the front...quite a show....Hamlin and Keselowski made it exciting at the final shootout. Best part was Mr. Hendrick riding inside Jr's car during the victory celebration...I never saw a Team Owner do that before. What a happy day for them. It was like watching kids celebrating together. A special moment. Congrats to Jr, and Mr. Hendrick. It was one for the ages.
Being a Jr fan, I was extremely pleased with the Daytona 500 results. Nice Camaro pace car for the race, great performance from several of the Chevrolet teams and a very exciting race.

As an added plus for Chevy, the Camaros aren't nearly as flammable as the SS Pace Cars...

Ehhhh really it had nothing to due with the SS.... It was the equipment that was installed for the extra lights and such.

Maybe I watched one too many conspiracy movies and think it was caused by someone less than pleased with GM ending vehicle manufacture in AU act of sabotage

If you have a pristine 1LE, ZL1, Z/28, C6 Z06 or C7, live in the Mid East Coast area (West Virgina, Maryland, DC, North Carolina and Virginia) and are interested in performance upgrades on a cooperative basis drop me a PM.

...roger that Clyde...it was all that and then some...I literally stood for the last 40 last laps and was fixated on the TV....I have to say it was the most thrilling thing I have seen since the last time I can't even remember on TV. I am so happy for Jr., and Mr. Hendrick. It was high fives all around...except for Hamlin with the dead radio....LOL. The pace car looked a red 1LE 2014 SS. It was sharp......

...it's just drain bamage.... Scary thing is, it's slipping away faster than I would like...but what the hay....we all will get there at some point if we hang around long enough. Now....what about the snow, I am looking at the car every day in the shop and remembring last winter when I could drive it every day....LOL. Sidenote...we have Canadian Robin's here...I have never ever seen them before. Big ol fat red chested Robin's eatin the daylights out of my holly tree and crapping insanly onto the ground, walkway, sidewalk, porch, driveway, and my cars in the driveway. It's like the movie The Bird's. Never in my life have I seen these critters here before in the dead of winter. Must be a real bad winter for our neighbors up north if their critters are coming to Jersey.

Just like I sit at the computer and walk 20 feet into the kitchen and then go "what did I come in here for?"!! I told my female online friend that sometimes I felt like the male owl on the Geico commercials. But hey, I've forgotten that I can't afford a 2014 Z/28 and am ready to look at them, there's always a positive!!

I think I'm gonna take the Atlanta route on the way there so I can see my sister and niece but I could go your way on the way back. Sunday morning after it's over I could follow you, if that's cool with you. We'll have to set something up to make sure I see ya once I'm at the fest. I don't have a smart phone or navigation so I'll be google mapping it to get there and hoping for the best. (I've had the same flip phone since 2009) Not knowing anything about Baytown I asked a girl at my work that's from Houston and she gave me some pointers and says that Baytown is a pretty nice area and shouldn't be unsafe for us or our cars. My only experience in Texas is just passing through to visit family in Kansas. I'll really test out these Recaros doing this much driving. Should be a blast.
