He said no Z28.

prove it.

I want to see the whole quote, want to see where it came from, want to know when it was said and want to know the context of the conversation.

you talk a good game, but since you haven't been in on any of the product planning and development meetings for the Camaro, I dont believe a word you say about the Camaro or the status of the Z28 program... until you've got some HARD COPY PROOF, your best bet is to keep your mouth shut.

WMHolden will only produce an alleged copy of an electronic letter he received. It will be a copied and pasted statement. Thus far, IMVHO, he has no unequivocal proof of what he is claiming. What's a little confusing to me is this meeting was with a bunch of GTO guys or something; I forget exactly.

I'm tired of all the "BRING ME THE Z" or "THERE ISN'T GOING TO BE A Z!!?!?!" ETC.

The ONLY person I will believe ANYTHING about on the Z28, is the Fbodfather Himself.

He should be the ONLY person allowed to post ANYTHING about the Z, THEN we can talk about it.

Just my opinion.
I, honestly, don't see why there are so many with a view similar to yours. If you were to apply this view to Camaro, before it was even confirmed to be produced, this forum wouldn't be here. I'm all about discussion and friendly talk about enthusiasm and disappointment in this car, but I don't see why there is such a fuss about this particular subject. I can completely understand the frustration in sifting through anything constructive in posts that have no validation, however, we have been given validation by 'Father. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, and I think this forum is a great place to express it. Can't we all just get along?

Speaking of quote, I'm going to jack for just a second - can someone point me in the direction of figuring out how to multi-quote from multiple posts in one response? I've looked but haven't figured it out yet. I'm sorry to

I'm sorry, but I still fail to see the proof in the statement. Please believe me when I say that if I get egg on my face and there is actual confirmation the car isn't in development for a future release, I will be the first to appologize. However, this information does not have any factual information as of yet. It is common knowledge that GM does not discuss future programs, so it would stand to reason that any answer from executives and such would be met with a "no, we aren't doing that car" and such. Again, if you are correct, and there is factual proof from someone like 'Father, then I'll be the first in line to appologize for any negative suggestions.

Sincerely...

I have no real problem with people discussing it really, but ever since those articles have been popping up all over the net people have come here and made posts like "OH EM GEE TEY KEELED OUR Z28!!!" and its just kind of annoying, especially when we have been told by the father that it isn't dead.

for one this is a very touchy subject and for anyone that feels it should be locked I'm sorry but it will just cause another thread to pop up. and if that were merged it would cause another thread and so on and so forth.


As for your post holden, we know of a supercharged camaro running around. we also know what Fbodfather has said, and that no one in their right mind would think the Z28 ZL1 or wot not would be available at the start of production. and all the information being published right now about the Z28 being dead is only focusing on the start of regular production. because everyone that sells mags and wot not want to sell more mags later on they only publish what is in the short term and state it as fact when in reality it could/will change in the future. so they publish a new mag later on with more current info and they make more money. all this press about the Z being dead is just to sell mags or to draw up internet traffic. but yea.

so who cares what people feel when it comes to locking threads over the Z28. the ones that want it will just create new threads.
