whats funny is my local Camaro club has regular SS's and even a few Turboed V6s in the 1000+hp range that stomp ZL1s for lunch.. You are not that special.

I haven't read all of the responses but this has been going on for as long as muscle cars have been around. I could care less if somebody bolts a bunch of body parts and wheels onto the SS/LT/LS. It doesn't impact the ZL1 at all. There's only one way to get a ZL1 and that is to buy one. I'm not trying to minimize anybody's modified car because there are certainly many many very tastefully modified Camaros. I'm just saying it has no impact on the ZL1.

OP you probably should have bought a Lamborghini.

I hear they're pretty unique.

Posted this on another thread, but heres something that sets the ZL1 (projected) to differ from the camaros.....so keep it original


While there were shouts out for V-8 powered Chevrolet Camaros, DeutscheBundeswehr picked the top-dog ZL1, suggesting that today’s ZL1 will be in 25 years what 1960s classic Camaros are to us now.

I have plenty of friends with high powered vehicles, faster then my stock ZL1. Not sure what your point is? Hell Suxhost 1LE would most likely whoop my ass, and many other members on this forum. Once again, what's your point? Oh wait you dont have any, and clearly misunderstood what I said. Enjoy your Dusk edition, btw.

I'm simply asking GM to make it harder to replicate, nothing more, nothing less. If they decide to add fenders, maybe a vent in the quarter panels, etc that would work which would require different lines for the front bumper/hood. I have nothing against other models. I've had them all damn near. In any case, this is a platform for opinions and this is why I love the car. Not all will agree which is everyone's right, I pay my car payment just like everyone else.

my point is.. you make no sense at all.
You bought a muscle car. a Camaro at that which the entire history of the car has been about modding.
If you wanted to be "exclusive" buy a freaking Bugatti. otherwise you are not special.

welcome to the world of muscle cars and cars in general.

Would this be at Board track racing? Drag racing? Dirt track racing? Ice racing? Formula racing? Midget car racing? Sprint car racing? Off-road racing? Pickup truck racing? Production car racing? Rally racing? Rally-cross? Road racing? Slot-car racing? Sports car racing? Stock car racing? Touring car racing? Truck racing or Lawnmower racing? Or maybe Street racing?







Wait, what the heck does stomp for lunch actually mean?

I have heard 'eat for lunch' and 'stomp', but 'stomp for lunch'?

Oh well, group hugs for all. Or maybe just a round.

I chose to ignore the juvenile dig and answer the real question.

It's not that I don't make sense, because clearly others understand where I'm coming from, now whether they agree or disagree is a different situation.

You made no sense at all about V6 TTs being able to beat a ZL1. Clearly you don't understand. I won't fault you for that.

Being as old as I am and your entire stance on customizing I'm betting I have cars older than you. welcome to the hobby.

This is part of the motorsport hobby.

there really is no need for the arguing, everyone has a different opinion. theres better ways in saying how you feel about something. RELAX guys, it's just a car.
