If you want the stripped down, start with a 2014 1SS/non-RS 1LE. Strip it yourself and sell off the parts. Use the money from parts sold to buy upgrades. I'm sure once the Z28 hits the street, the body parts are going to get copied left and right on the aftermarket. You can build the SS into a z/28 clone pretty easily. You'll just be missing the engine and brakes. You can build the LS3 to meet the 500hp number of the Z/28 and as far as the brakes go, do you need $10k carbon brakes or would a set of drill/slotted rotors and high preformance pads be enough, or even a big brake kit? You might eventually end up near $50k invested, but you can spend it at your owe pace over years.
