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.



and thank god your not!

If it has a factory supercharger it will be over $55k, they will have to upgrade the entire drivetrain. The 426hp already blows apart the clutch,trans and diff.

I think they will not do it since the top HP for the Caddy CTSv is 8% of its sales share. IMHO

Probably keep it. But I will get a manual for sure. I dont know why I ordered an automatic for my SS, I want to shift gears! Tap shift doesnt do it for me.

In my circumstances. Nope.

I love my 2SS and am pretty much happy with the car as it is. Will be doing some minor modifications to accomodate my tastes.

Nope.. Dollar for dollar I think it would be cheaper just to keep what I have and do some mods to make it better/faster and be ahead of the game. I'm betting the price tag on this thing will be high.

the first gen z28 only kept its value cause of the 302 motor. second gen z28 was ok. first gen camaro SS and RS kept there value and are high collectibles.

GM might give a warranty for there supercharger but you know its gonna be a low boost car. Aftermarket superchargers offer a 3 year warranty as well.

As for the value it depends on how many they make. that is the real bottom line.

i guess if GM offered a z28 with a supercharger, headers, CAI and some new options I might be interested but i think all these camaros will keep there value. i guess we got to see how many they make in 2010.

3)The SS badges I like I think that the SS should have still been the top Dog like the old days.
4)Cannot be insured by most insurance companies (since when)
5)Is not warrantied(Forget stinking warranties)

if the z/28 is a supercharged v8 with all the cool features then yes i would trade but i hear a lot of you say you want the z/28 to compete with the mustang cobra.. but if you let the z/28 be plain jane with nothing inside as far as eletronics, seat warmers, nav screen, radio, power windows, power seats and just have a big engine, you know that people wouldnt go for that and just buy a cobra that is supercharged and has all the extra cool stuff, the days of just having a big engine, a radio and hard seats are gone, its 2010! lol

It will be easy to get your hands on a SS once the Z/28 comes out because everyone will be trading their SS in for a Z/28.

No they won't, because the Z/28 MSRP is going to be well out of the range for most of the Camaro target audience and you can pretty much guarantee that if they are built in limited numbers, there will be significant dealer markups. Couple that with more stringent financing rules, and the inevitable resale hit the SS version is going to receive as a result of the Z/28 being announced by GM, and you're looking at, generally speaking, few current SS owners trading in.

What, ... are you kidding? Trade my 2SS for a Z/28?? Not on your life!!!

I love my SS and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world! I would much rather spend a couple of grand and add on to what I've got rather than to shell out an additional $50 - $60,000 Canadian just to say I have a "Z"
