I don't understand all the negativity being directed toward the OP because a big part of the reason for buying a really expensive, exotic car like the ZL1 is to show the world how special you are. And if regular people can alter their plebian vehicles to mimic the appearance of your exotic, well then that defeats a large purpose of owning the exotic, doesn't it?

I feel your pain, OP.

Personally, I do not even wear my Rolex anymore because of the rampant proliferation of knock-offs that any poor person could afford. The final straw came when someone complimented my watch, but then asked if it was real. I just wanted to crawl into a hole and die.

Then, just the other night, while the wife and I were waiting for our usual table at Smith & Wollensky's, a woman, clearly a commoner (upper middle class at best), came in and stood next to us carrying what was obviously a counterfiet Prada bag. Needless to say the wife, carrying a real one, was embarassed beyond words and could only be placated with a buying spree at Tiffany's.

So yes, when regular people try to pretend they are us it is upsetting. Most people on this forum won't get that, but I've got your back.

The timeslips of the ZL1 makes it different from a V6 or SS with the body panels, but you can't say anything about it if an SS looking like a ZL1 hands it to ya.

I'm fine, lol. But thanks! The forum is a platform for opinions. There will aways be people who agree and disagree with certain things, that's just life. That's what I love about Camaro5 and will continue to be a supporter of it and the vendors, good or bad.

This.

I knew lots of folks who swapped IROC bumpers and body kits on their V6 third gens years ago. It has always been done. There was an attempt to make purchasing 4th Gen SS hoods more difficult. As a result, there are lots of near exact copies of 4th Gen SS hoods available in the aftermarket. None of that ever bothered me.

OP, I seldom read an entire thread. This one was instresting. I can understand your concerns, you bring up a good point. Do I beleive GM will do that most likely not. I got to sit in a ZL1 when I traded in my 2011. I beleive that makes me smarter now J/K. Please post a pict of your ZL1 I would like to see it.

thanks

A lot of people seek attention, some more than others...

...and get mad when attention is taken away (in their mind)...



Why am I so entertained by members Usernames, Signatures and thread posts.
