Is it just me or did GM piss you off coming out late with the ZL1?

If I would have known GM was going to offer a ZL1 I would have held out until it came out on the market. Even if GM would have said they will be coming out with the ZL1 with the higher horse power I would have waited.

I love my 2010 Camaro but I would rather have the higher HP of the ZL1.

Dude you had to think they would eventually make a 550+hp car....the camaro coming back was clearly going to kick start the pony wars.

You've been a member since 2009 with 800 posts and you didn't even have an inkling that GM was gonna make a supercharged Camaro?

Did you really expect GM to stop developing and improving the Camaro just because you bought one?

I would answer this, but I'm busy playing checkers and yelling at the neighborhood kids to stay out of my yard.

Even though I have a 2007 Impala and a 2009 Pontiac in the garage, I must be careful and watch what I post. I wouldn't want to upset any of the board Gods.

All kidding aside, it seems like about 2 or so years since solid rumors have been out, starting with the rumors about the Z/28. Most muscle cars always come out with a higher HP model a year or so after the car has been on the market. Challenger did it different coming out with the SRT8 from the inception.

A better, newer, model is always going to come along. Mod your SS and enjoy the ride. Just think of it this way - now you can get zl1 take off parts for your SS

Thanks Hylton, I am still laughing 10 minutes after I read your response. As the owner of a 3GS, patience is a virtue.
