The Z/28 is Back!

My first car was a 1967 Z/28 that I dearly loved. Wish I still had it.

Are you as excited as I am about the 2014 Z/28?  It's a gorgeous car called "the most track-capable Camaro ever" right off the assembly line.  The outside is beautiful and the seats are sexy.  The exterior has been revised for high performance aerodynamics ... more efficient cooling and stability at high speeds! And, like the original, it will only come with a manual transmission!

According to Mark Reuss, president, GM North America:  "As the ultimate track-capable Camaro, this car restores the mission of the original Z/28 and serves as a testament to the expertise of Chevrolet as the best-selling brand of performance cars" and "This car could only come from Chevrolet and could only be called the Z/28." 

The hand assembled 7.0L LS7 engine (think Z06) delivers at least 500 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. The chief engineer says "The broad torque curve and high redline of the LS7 mean fewer shifts are required and the lightweight design improves the front to rear weight balance for better handling."  We should be getting the Z28 late this year so if you are wanting a track ready Camaro or just want to relive the Camaro of your youth...please let  me know!
