Chevroletreports.com Z28 article

I'm hoping this is not a repost. It's an older entry from Chevroletreports.com dated Sept. 28. I thought some people who haven't seen it yet might find it interesting.

"Expect pricing of the Z28 to exceed current SS models by at least $8,000, but not to grow anywhere near Corvette money. GM would like to keep the Camaro Z28 as its original pony car for the average-income car lover. If the General keeps his word and GM builds this thing, we believe it will become a workhorse and a collectors item for Camaro lovers everywhere"

It would be very nice if they can "keep the Camaro Z28 as its original pony car for the average-income car lover"

LSA camaro for ~$43,000, and lip spoiler is larger. Sounds like a good deal to me. =)

Since when did GM release images of Z28?! That's Jinx' design right there!!! If GM released something, I want to see it. The closest I know of was in the little blurbs on the bonus disc of TFROTF and in "... An American Icon." $8K over SS sounds too good to be true for everything that article is quoting, however, I'd sh*t my pants if that were the case. If they can make that car, I'd sell what I had to to get one

Looks like I'll be selling my SS next year, depending if this thing can beat up on the HPE550 or not.
