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.
