In my mind the 69 to 70 1/2 Z28 was the King of the Hill, but starting in '72 GM didn't have a clue about making horsepower with the new smog restrictions. I think that held true through the late 90's when the Z28's were much better, but then the SS came out and surpassed the Z's power. I always thought GM betrayed the Z28 name by letting the SS have more power.

I'd buy a new Z28 in a heartbeat, but for now I'm enjoying the hell out of my SS.

Yea, I set my Z/28 game plan 3 years ago when the Gen5 prototype came out. Buy DD Gen5 for a few years and enjoy it until the Gen5 Z/28 comes out. I'll probably make that my weekend car. This is my 7th Camaro. I ordered a new '78 Z/28 (stolen) and a '80 Z/28. My 2LT will run circles around them. In fact a Gen5 2LT/M6 will run the quarter mile a second faster than '67 SS350.

It would drive me absolutely nuts if I wasn't driving some sort of Gen5 while waiting on the Z/28.
