You got disc brakes, stripes, and more appearance options than the ss/rs package and some other shit I don't remember but hell with the difference in weight I'm sure 396 vs. 302 became a drivers race. Not to mention a numbers matching z28 from the 60s will fetch way more at auction since way rarer. They only made like 600 in 67, 7000 or so in 68, and I forget for 69. But next time you rag on some shit be right. I drive a z28 and personally I love the ss tail and hood and always thought they looked good but I wanted rs tail/ ss hood, just so it would be different. But now I gotta go no ss parts cuz you think its stupid on a z28. Hahahaha. naw just giving you a hard time no hard feelings just thought you should know

    Nope,,,,Z28's came out in 67 and 68 as well. They made 602 the first year to homologate the car for Trans Am racing,,,which required 500 or more to be available to the public.

    Im all for the Z28. Anybody can bargain shop, but when you roll up in the 5th gen z, people will walk right past a vette or comparable car to get a glimpse at your car. I have been down the bargain road many times with gently used C6 Z06's and clearanced priced LS3 vettes but nothing compares to the car that has a engine that normally doesn't belong in it. Where the LS9 gave the corvette the highest hp production engine ever produced by GM, they will make history again buy creating the highest horsepower production camaro ever built. Going fast is cool, but when you get eyes going slow, that counts to.

    That's about how it goes with anything that's new to the public, once the newness wears off it's just another camaro, vette (or what have you) at the local cruise.

    Its not about the looks for me and I don't do car shows. It all about the sound of the exhaust, the engine straining at the mounts, and smell of burnt rubber!

    The Z/28 was not offered in 1975 or 1976. I thought that was correct so I double checked. www.camaro-registry.com/production.htm

    Good catch. I'd forgotten they stopped making Z28's just as the catalytic converter came on line.

    And technically the 88, 89 and 90 IROC-Z isn't strictly a Z28. I guess it all depends on your take on it.

    Production totals FYI: http://www.camaro-registry.com/production.htm

    THEN, I'll wait a few years and buy one when they've gone down considerably in price, just like I did with the SS I currently own.
    Lots of options out there,and if someone owns a high mileage or buys one,your still way under the price of a new car without all the tax and everything else.

    The only downfall is you also get all the abuse that comes with a used one.

    Well think of it this way.If you pick up a car for lets say the 8-10 range in really decent condition,and drive it while you collect the parts for a serious upgrade in the way of something out of a crashed Corvette or an Esclade(sp),how much will you have in the car without the higher Registration, Sales Tax, Depreciation, Insurance.If you even have 20 in the car when your done, thats still a long way from the cost of buying a new one, and if the Camaro is not your "Cup of Tea" there are probably just as many Trans Ams out there to be had. Super Chevy has an article on just what fits what from the guys that designed them in the copy I just got in the mail.Just my .02.

    x2. I'm either going to rebuild the engine at 200k or maybe drop in something a little newer...

    stroker ls3 t/a anyone?

    Even after replacing, fixing, and upgrading everything you can still have an extremely nice 4th gen for cheaper than a new 5th gen.
    And it'll be faster.

    Whether you'd like it better than a new car is up to you.
