Sold SS waiting for Z28!

I just sold my IOM 2SS/RS to my father. He just got a '10 Corvette Convertible Grand Sport, but once he heard that the Z28 is a go, at the moment, and that the new Vette is only two years away he sold it. He wanted a toy and I was selling it anyway so he bought it. I also am waiting for the Z28 I know alot of people on here are still up in the air about GM building it, but I am one that believes it will be out at the end of 2011 so I am waiting. My dealer also heard from his rep that it's a very realistic timeframe that Oct/Nov 2011 as a 2012 model with the convertibles coming out Aug/Sept 2011 as a 2012. So hopefully we will know something soon and get some pics eventually so we can all gawk at it!

Why didn't you both just keep your cars until GM officially announced it?

Because obviously neither one of them knows how to exercise and restraint, and they have the money to do it.

Wish I was in the same position

and who are you to know what business they are in?

I'm sure if they find it profitable they will make it. with enough people around here begging for it and the price range it is very possible. stop being a negative nancy

that's at LEAST 2 summers worth of driving you will miss out on.

Provided your time line is accurate... It's still a crap shoot as to when the Z28 may appear.

Don't worry the car will be built. These are probably the same people that said GM will never bring back the camaro.

Does anyone else not see this story as BS? Dad takes an immediate loss on the brand new GS (hearing that the Z is a go??? [source?]), deciding he can do with out a vette for 2 yrs, then decides a used Camaro would fill the bill better than the GS. Meanwhile, son CAN NOT WAIT for the Z28, but easily gives up the SS to drive his Honda Accord for some unknown period of time until which GM may or may not build a more desirable Camaro. Can anyone honestly imagine having the SS, then saying, what the heck, they might build the Z, so I'm going to give up this BA car NOW so I can what, put myself thru penance for the unforeseeable future in the event the heavenly Z is built? Raising the BS flag...

and I guess you would raise the BS flag on me. I haven't even bought yet because of the Z. . .I've seen all types on the forums and in person.

I don't like to speculate on RUMORS, but the GM rep at EPCOT clearly said with conviction to my attempt to bait him on the topic, by pretexting him with "I wanted a Z-28 and would never buy the 2010 SS, and would wait for Z-28 and was told 18-24 months before GM gets my money" His reply was simple "GM is going to get your money very soon"

Trying to validate the statement, I started doing my due diligence on the license GM vendors who provide aftermarket parts and they are already advertising Z-28 parts, so it just makes you think.........Do they have some inside information?

Example: http://www.defenderworx.com/index.php?option=com_joomgallery&func=viewcategory &catid=28&Itemid=22

Should be obvious I own a SS, and if the Z-28 comes out in the near future, I'll probably get it unless the C7 hits the streets first.
That is one very weak example...any vendor can make Z/28 badges for the 2010 SS. And note, the website promotes 2010 parts...the Z won't be a 2010 model. Anything more substantial?

I personally would rather be driving a new 2010 Camaro than a used Honda Civic for the next 2 years +....

To each his own..

No, I can understand simply waiting. What I don't get is having the SS already, then giving it up NOW to settle for my Honda DD. And dad, having a brand new GS stating, "What? The Z/28 is a go?! I gotta sell this thing and buy my kid's used Camaro." What??? I just don't buy the story, and if it is true, they are two of the most strange characters I've ever heard of.

Those Z28 badges don't mean squat. There will be alot of pretenders buying those badges and putting them on their SS's.
I wouldn't hold my breath on the Z28, just wait and when/if it ever does happen, it will be shown at the auto shows way before it happens.

Boxmonkeyracing, i suggested the zl575 cause you can order it from chevy and get a legit warranty. and from the looks of pictures the hood that SLP 575 is very close looking to the z28 pictured on motor trend which said it was a go but from then on no other updates.

do you have a crystal ball on when the Z28 is coming out what specs do you think it will have and price. I really honestly donno much about this Z28 but just a hunch i think it would be around the same price of a Zl575.

also if the Camaro goes to the alpha chassis, im sure they will make a z28 but would it be the same as the ss. Prob more like a cts.v.
this is all guessing
