I bought my first Z28 just out of high school in '78 which was only 7% more than a rally sport V8. At the time it was not easy to swing it working entry-level full-time but it was possible. Don't get me wrong I would love a new Z28, just think this one has fallen away from it's roots a bit. Just my opinion. I respect those that think otherwise. We all love Camaros .
Go back to the '69 MSRP list, take a 6-cylinder Camaro, add all the features you can to match a 2013 1LT as close as you can, and you'll find the '69 list would have been over $5,800. You STILL wouldn't have all the electronic and safety features you have, today, nor would you have the build quality you have today.

$5,800, adjusted for today's dollar (X 5.94), = $34,452, considerably more than its current Base Price.

To approximate a Z/28, you'd need to take '69 COPO 9560 ZL1-engined Camaro (@ $7,000 and change) and start adding a very l-o-n-g list of features to it. You'd end up well north of $10,000...which today would be over $60,000...which it will be...
