Content aside, that was a pretty cool article. I still say that IMHO, there isn't a need for so many variations on the same dang thing. I mean, okay, LS9 for the ZR1, LSA for the CTS-V, and maybe the "lowest" power one (I forget the designation) for trucks. Why do the Z06 and Camaro need a completely separate engine? Stick the LSA in those cars - tune the cars more conservative power-wise, instead of like reengineer the whole deal. Of course, I'd be one of many who would be super happy with that, but I'll just have to be hopeful. Come on GM

Exactly. Hopefully, they'll be a little right and give us an LSA.

First, I want a Z28 (on topic)
second, "HEY!!! I played trombone for 6 years...marching band last 3 years. LOVED it. Went to Cali and swept in all catagories (both Jazz bands, Marching, drumline, both concert classes). Was a lot of fun....band, trips, games, etc. Had to play foot ball the last year and a half....which was a hell of a lot of fun too!

Well, yesterday, I talked to a frined of mine. We were talking about cars and I told him th eCamaro was out on 2009 but that I was waiting for the supercharged Z28.
He told me "yeah, I'm pretty sure you will never get that car and that you're nothing but a big mouth".

Please GM, make the Z28 happen as fast as possible, I can't wait to shut HIS mouth. I HAVE to shut his mouth

Bari' sax' and ssousaphone in marching band and bari' and miraphone (I can't find the spelling, but it's like the tuba, but purportedly more mellow... boring.) Marching band, wind ensemble, orchestra, jazz band, pep' band, State honor bands. Band geek I guess you could say. "One time, in band camp..."

But HEY, I want a Z28!!!

I can play the drums on most songs in Rock Band while drunk at 3 am (ah how I will miss those thursday nights ) I figure I should be decent on real drums when I'm sober and alert.
