SLP ZL575 OR WAIT FOR Z28

Would you recommend purchasing now the SLP ZL575 or wait for the Camaro Z28. (assuming it's produced) The ZL575 IS at least 10K MORE THAN A Z28 WOULD probably be. (Has to be competitive with Shelby GT500). Also do you think the ZL575 would hold its value better than a Z28?

Just get a HPE650 or something.
Was just typing this when I had to back out and refresh......LOL.


You have 200k in 2 cars already, who cares about 10 grand..... fishy

Not to take anything away from SLP Im sure their car is great. However from everything I've seen and read If you in the market for a modified Camaro you might want to check out NICKEY Chicago. They offer Complete cars packaged with super chargers all the way to a twin turbo 427.

I forgot to say that I already have a 2010 Cyber Grey Camaro SS already. However, I was planning on getting a Z28 or whatever with 550HP plus, but with this ZL575 available now, I have got a problem.


Price is an issue now. These cars were purchased with inheirtance. I would probably just sell the Camaro ss If I decided to purchase the ZL575

Wait for official word on the Z28. If it's a negatory, then buy ZL575

Well since I talked to SLP and they are only making 250 MT and 250 AT ZL575's and the Z/28 is a pipe dream..go for the ZL575 for collectors value.

But to totally confuse you Hennessey offers some really good mods too. Thats the route I am taking.

I hope this will be the case, but then how do you explain that the Special Edition Yenko's , Berger's, etc are worth more today than for example a 69 Z28 Camaro- I think it could be the old law of Supply & Demand. Approx 20k 69 Z28 Camaro's were produced & only a few of the high HP special edition Camaro's were manufactured.

I don't think the ZLP575 won't keep it's value like the Z will. I think I'll just spend the money on the one I have. Spending all that money on just speed equipment will more than make the Camaro VS GT 500 a winner. Who needs all that other stuff the they put on the SLP.

One big difference I see, none of the Yenko, Baldwin-Motion, etc. were Z/28s, most everything you are talking about was 427cid COPO cars that were then "personalized" by Yenko, etc. Sure there were 20k plus Z/28s built in '69, but I've seen numbers matching '69 Z/28s go for $140,000-$160,000 plus at Barrett/Jackson (though many sell for less), so they seem to still fetch a pretty good price. Some people like the "personalized" COPOs, some like Z/28s, I think it's awesome that we have so many choices from back then.

Why not just take your 2010 and let Hennessey or Lingenfelter convert it?

Yenko Sports Cars Inc. did indeed have a special Z28 available. It was called the Yenko Stormer. It was a complete SCCA road race ready package.

Don Yenko is the man who was able to convince Vince Piggens to have the factory install the L72 427ci engine into was was basically a Z28 Camaro body and chassis along with a few additional upgrades. Other dealers learned of the COPO 9561 and 9737 Packages and soon ordered there own versions.

Supply and demand has a material impact on the value and collectibility of these special Camaros.

The super car tnners of the day such as Nickey Chicago and Motion Performance etc.. did on occassion use Z28 Camaros as a basis for their conversions.

That is a great idea, except I decided my Z28 or whatever has to be a different Color-VICTORY RED with Black Stripes or ORANGE with Black Stripes. Also SLP is 50 state certified. Lingenfelter according to their website in not Certified in Calif. Not sure about Hennessey Ca. certification & not aware of their Prices (there prices are not listed on their website-they say to call for prices)

Also, I forgot to mention the Z28 or whatever has to have a Hoodscoop like the SLP or the MOTOR TREND Z28. Lingenfelter & Hennessey seem to use the existing hood. Of Course, I probably prefer the Nickey Chicago Super Camaro Wheels vs the SLP wheels, but considering all the current Special Edition Camaro's, the SLP seems to be the least expensive.

Interesting that they made a Z/28 based version. That does not alter the fact that once the 302cid is removed and replaced with a different engine you no longer have a Z/28, in essence you have a "Z/28 tribute car".

I know a man who owns a multi-billion dollar company and he buys his shirts at the swap market, 3 for $10. He doesn't understand why his wife insists on paying $100 for a Tommy Bahama shirt. But he'll spend $10,000 on a Barret M107. My point is just because you have it you don't have to flush down the toilet. He feels a shirt is a shirt, why pay more. But he doesn't flinch for spending the dough on something unique.

I personally would wait for the real thing...Z28. Or buy an SS and build it to suite, I never understood why people overpay for packages like the SLP car.

Most of the companies will do whatever you want to your car. I have spoke with SLP, Hennessey and a few others. I am sure somthing can be worked out as far as rims, hoods and the like.
