Would you get rid of your SS for a Z/28?

Topic.


I'd say maybe, depending on my financial situation and just how beefy the Z/28 was.

No, considering I already have the SS. If I was in the market for a new one and the Z28 was out and priced right I would consider it. I look at it this way, the car is paid for and I plan on keeping it for a long long time. Down the road if I wand more power I can add my own blower.

It would be cheaper to just add a maggie to your SS than get a Z/28 with the same output assuming the Z/28's will be around $45k.

You guys raise good points.

Personally, I would consider it if the Z/28 was so upscaled it would be illogical to pour money in the SS instead. Besides performance, we can speculate a possible Z/28 would have a much more aggressive body style, electronics GPS package, perhaps a Bose system, etc.

Yeah and if it had a different engine than the SS's. Because eventually all of those things will become aftermarket and you could just make your SS into a Z28 lol. But if the Z28 had a LS7 (Lets dream now haha) then I would think it would be worth it definately. But if its just an LS3 with a maggie naw.

Would have to look at the cost and see if I could get #230 to the same performance for less money.

Someone said "upscale" GPS, bose... blah blah. This goes against everything a Z/28 stands for. The SS should have that stuff, not the Z/28. The Z/28 should be a 1SS non RS with more power (LS7/9), better (stiffer) suspension, slotted rotors, standard short throw shifter, bumblebee hood, lightweight wheels... No bose, no GPS, no leather heated seats, no HUD... all crap. Yes, its nice crap and I love my 2SS/RS but if I was making the Z/28, thats how I'd make it.

I would not get rid of my 2SS/RS for a Z/28 as I described. I'd get one TOO, but not in place of.

It would depend on what the Z28 option entailed. Great points brought out here, if it was just predominately a supercharger with heavier coils and bigger sway bars ,no it would be alot cheaper to just upgrade my SS with these component, or their aftermarket counterparts,which may actually be better. Besides I already have one.

Nope, not gonna do it....

My SS/RS is the first new Muscle car I've ever ordered/owned, and I'm kind of attached to it... Not as much say as Sssoochh, but attached all the same...

I owned a 71 Hemi cuda, had no problem selling it, though I wish I still owned it today... I would rather make the horsepower in my SS than buy a Z-28.... I like the sleeper effect.... though if the price and stuff were right, I might own both... as mentioned prior---, LS-7, no heated seats and Bose and GPS and all the other things that make my SS so Classy....
Raw Power, oh yeah....

I will be getting a Camaro SS. Any future Z28 will be great, but a stripper 1SS is just right for me.

Why, you can build it faster, more unique, and personalized.

1. I get to enjoy it now
2. I can change what I want to the way I want it
3. I can make it faster than the Z
4. GM will never be able to match my interior

Once I get my Z/28 , it is going right down to Mikey @ Rapid Motorsports. I am already thinking about modifying. I never learn.

order Z/28 , meh

I do not recall seeing the Z/28 outdo the SS buit then again I have not paid attention to Camaro until I ordered and paid for my 1st Camaro , the 2000 SS!

If I had known about a Z/28 confirmed for production before I bought this SC, pipes, and CAI then maybe.... as long as SS isn't available with the bigger and better which I suspect will happen. When I bought my 2000 SS the SS was the Z/28 upgraded with everything like CAI, suspension, wheels, etc. Don't let the secret get out but I have never actually liked the Z!

You can personalize a Z/28 too. I know I will not keep mine stock even though I will keep it looking stock. Head Work/ Rapid Custom Grind Cam plus maybe swapping that 1.9l blower to 2.3l. Swap out some of the internals for sure.

No, I will not be getting rid of my SS. This is the car I have always wanted. I ordered it with EXACTLY the options I wanted. No more no less. It is perfect for me. I think it will be really cool to see how the Z28 ends up when it comes out, but I will only be an admirer, not a buyer. This SS is HOTNESS!!!!!!!!!!!
