That's a good list of things. Personally would rather see an LS7 over a SC LS3 though... It would just give it so much more potential, if it was an option of course.

Thanks. I thoguht real hard about the list. I saw someone called out GM to read his wish list and someone mentioned having a poll instead of a wishlist so here it is! And I guess I would have to agree that maybe a LS7 wouldn't be so bad if they bumped up the power a tad. The engine has alot of potential and is easy to mod. And a 427 badge would kick @ss on the Z28 hood!

I know it's a pipe dream but I would like to say I owned a 427 at some point in my life. Maybe I should just get a Z06.

I little more aggressive styling, hugger orange, more race inspired tuned suspension, 500+ hp v8 either bigger cubes or SC...wider rear tires

optional radio & a/c delete and stripped down interior for weight reduction...

Yeah, I definitely think this poll is a wish list! At least it is for me... I love the thought of the Z28 and stuff but I don't know if GM is going to be offering an AC/stereo delete. I think it would be a good option for people who are trying to squeeze every ounce of power out of their car but to be honest if you want it done you should probably just do it yourself. That's what I think, not trying to be rude or anything. But you never know, it could be a sales pitch for GM to save money and recycle assets, you never know how it could pan out. But I know when I get my Camaro SS or Z28, whichever I like more, I'm taking the back seats out. Should save some good weight, and I won't even be using them so it's fine with me not having them lol.

Personally not a big fan of badges, so I hope it doesn't come with a whole bunch of badges. But if it does, I'll just remove them. That's just my opinion on badging though. The worst badges are the dealer ones though...

You never know, there may be some sort of special "incentive" or trade in deal on it. Don't get me wrong, you won't get what it's worth but probably better than any other used car that's a GM product. At least I hope for every one else's sake. I'm sure they'll get more SS's back, which will increase the Z28 sales, if they make some sort of incentive trade in set up.

I voted for more aggressive styling, but what I don't want is a bunch of body cladding, ground effects, and fake scoops that will make it look like a wanna be Mustang boy racer mobile, yuck.

I hope GM uses the same design philosophy as the Z06 with the Z28. More aggressive with it's wide body and scoop/larger vents, but still very clean and functional. Less is sometimes more.

Supercharged v8, 500+hp, lower stance, better handling, recaro seats, functional ducted hood, z-specific wheels, color option for gauges (console/dash).

Unique but simply executed.....no gawdy ground effects, wings, etc.

Dream on.........::

Aye Cosmo, you pretty much nailed it.

They come even close to that with a Z and every holdout will mortgage his soul to get one.

So what would need to be done to have better handling than the SS when you add weight via super charger and supporting componets?

A big DI engine, more aggressive, hood scoop, better handling (magnetic maybe), and it'd be nice if it had a different style stripe to set it apart.

I never thought of the Recaro seats, that's a great idea. Recaro seats are awesome.

I dont really care, the only thing is the most definite and obvious thing, and thats an engine that will eat any GT500 stock for stock for fun. A nice bigger scoop would be great as well.
