Anybody else suprised that this made front page, when a new member comes in and his first post is about a Z28 driveshaft? Don't know the guy, but I have my doubts.

Hmmmm...OP only has 2 posts in the forum and he shows up knowing about the Z28? I'll believe it when I see it, but I hope it's true.

I only searched google for a Camaro forum when I found out the info from my contact. I don't own a Camaro or plan to so why would I have an account or a post history here? And I'm not the only person who has said something about z28 driveshafts. Theres another person here that I saw - http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=70180. Like I said you guys can believe it or not but I'm just relaying what I was told from a guy I trust who said that this is fact.

I'm not trying to offend you or anything. And I'm not saying you're lying. I'm just skeptical, a lot of rumors floating around about the Z28. Gotta be weary of trolls.

I just sprayed soda all over my screen. That was hilarious.

I would definitely be interested in getting the Z28! Can't wait to see the end product and I certainly hope they use some cool lighting technology like LED's!

Man, now it makes me wonder if I should have waited. Although I don't think I could have waited to get a 5th Gen and I wonder how much it will cost. If it's gonna be comparable to the GT500 then the price tag will be close to 50K, and that's a little over my budget.

I'll just be happy with what I've got and maybe think of a Z28 down the road in a few years.

I'd hate to be one of the people who spent thousands on mods,when they trade or get rid of their cars,they won't get a penny more for mods or no mods. They should have been patient and waited for the Z-28. I haven't stuck a penny into my SS.I'm just wating for the Z!

Who really cares if a factory Z/28 exceeds the performance of the GT350? Ford doesn't even make the GT350. Ford currently offers only the base Mustang, the Mustang GT and the Shelby Mustang GT500.
