If they do make a Z/28 as a top of the line model like last time, they need to limit the production run. I pretty much guarantee that if they had limited the Z/28 to 500 (or 602 for history) per year there would be no question about whether the car was a success. Camaros were selling well and they decided to sell as many as they could make. Limiting the number would have cut total production by 1/3 and made them much more desirable and in my opinion would have made them hold their value much better. They would be viewed as the collectors items they are. Instead there are plenty of people trying to get rid of them at a steep discount because the market is over saturated.

That is funny! With only 1800 made you would think there would be more buyers. The plain truth is the name Camaro is what shot it down. As a car guy I don't care who makes the car, I only care about what it can do and the quality of it - so I spent the 76K and bought one of my all time favorite cars - for what it does. Which is go around a track ALL DAY and I don't have to worry about it. Give it a few years and those who track their cars will start grabbing them up at these low prices. I feel that eventually you will be paying more than what I paid for it. But that just an opinion of an owner.

As bad ass as that engine is, it's not street legal because it won't pass emissions. Wonder how much it would need to be detuned to pass emissions.

It is street legal, for older cars. But this can go in a vette if you watch the other video.

Here is the last Mercury in a vette.
