It seemed more logical to me for them to possibly put an LSA into it. It'd be great to see a GT500 fighter. Or killer in this case. But I couldn't afford it anyway.

I can look at this in a couple of ways.

1. that the z28 is dead.
2. That the supercharged z28 is dead. and plan B could be implemented


I'm going to pray it's the second one.


and let me say plan B could be just about anything. my personal fav is

race tuned suspension with double adjustable shocks
hot cam in the ls3.
lighter materials used through out.


but oh well all I can do is write my congressman and keep the faith.

He didn't say it's not going to happen, whatever it is... yet... They can take their CAFE an stick it up their tailpipes. Do you think I could actually send that to them?

Scott, I've done this and will continue to do this, even though I know it doesn't do a bit of good. I continue to vote against people who are in favor of arbitrary fuel economy numbers, but it doesn't do any good.

What I would like to know, is what are GM's lobbyists doing? We all know GM has very high powered and influencial lobbyists on Capitol Hill. Every time another CAFE adendum gets rubber stamped in Congress, we see and hear nothing from the GM and domestic automobile clought.

Are they doing their jobs? Do they pull as much muscle as they used to in Congress? Is Pellosi paying them under the table to shut up? What's the deal there?

I think the GM folks will most likely let everyone know exactly what their ultimate plans are for any high-powered Camaro by the 17th of this month.
