Decoding/Numbers / Re: New to this site!

Hey, Welcome to the CRG!
I would encourage you to start a new thread and introduce yourself, and the car and throw up a pic (or 10... ;D )

If you want, repost the link to the for sale ad, good pics and info, and then tell us what your plans for the car are.

I really like the excitement of new members and their purchases.

pics loaded fine for me, and i am on a slow connection. I like all the pics in general. What kind of heat shield is that for the starter solenoid?

interesting. Some of the numbers are off a bit, but at least you get an idea of HP VS. LBS VS. $. for each model.

It looked like the price and HP of the IROC was off and the 2010 SS, same thing.

With American racing wheels, and Cragar, I am surprised that steel wheels would have been a sought after item back then

Well I was thinking a similar idea but I was thinking it would be priced around 55k and maybe match up to the Shelby R. I think the Shelby R is Fords version of the 65 Shelby GT350R, and is more of a handling machine, with a extra high revving 302.

I liked the idea of the 2014-2015 Z/28, but with the extra fender well extensions, only a few colors, and the crazy price, I thought they missed the mark. Did it handle great yes, but it was the price of 2 camaros, and more than a corvette!

A 1SS (lat time I looked) base priced was about 37k ( 37k was about the price of a loaded 2SS in the 5th gen). SO I am thinking there is no way they are going to undercut the SS. I figure the 2SS has to start somewhere around 44k, so base of a Z I would ponder 50-55k. Plus I think they make it, since they have everything on hand, it will be one last hurray, for 2 years, and then the 7th gen will come out. Kinda the same way they only has a Z/28 in 14 and 15, and then 6th gen. Just a way to up the hype long enough for them to roll out a new model. Just my 2 cents

I agree Gary. Also trailer tires with the weight and stress on them are even more suceptiple to cracking and blow outs i have learned. Also there is different ratings for trailer tires specifically. I would have to look at my current trailer but i think the tires are D rated.

I have used original tires on many cars with no issues. If they are in a mild climate and not exposed to UV then it seems like they have been fine. Any kind of cracking in the side wall especially at the correct PSI and I would be leary of them.

Thanks for the input Vince. Well I know that the 6th gen as well as the 5th has terrible blind spots. I also know the 6th gen hasn't sold as well as the 5th, but there are many reasons for this. ( no rental fleet, no 10 year absence, and higher sticker for even the base 1SS). Maybe with the infotainment system and the better technology they had to up the prices a bit from the 5th gen?
It will be interesting to see where they go with the car as it evolves. I started another thread on garage told regarding the 2018 COPO having the option of a 302 motor, so just makes you wonder what could be in the works... ::)

I have seen an even shorter one than the PF25, so maybe there is 3 sizes.

Garage Talk / 2018 Camaro the 350 427 and 302 Cubic inch motors are back!!!
« on: November 01, 2017, 05:10:39 PM »
Hey guys I just saw this interesting presentation on the 2018 COPO Camaro and at the end of the video they announce that with each COPO you can choose which motor you want installed, with the option of purcashsing each of the other 2 motors, that will VIN matched to the car. I was not as impressed with the 350 cubic inch motor annoucement since Chevrolet has had a motor in there line up with very close to 350 C.I. , but the announcement of a 302 I thought was very interesting, and makes me wonder if this will be the motor designated for use in the upcoming Z/28.

If Chevrolet came out with a 6th gen Z/28 that indeed had a 302 C.I. motor will that get customers in the show rooms to purchase?

of course I am sure it will depend on price, and with the extra marketing power they are bound to use, I assume the new Z/28 will be priced at around 75k, BUT will they offer it in more colors, and a few more options ?

Could you special order it in "orange crush" ?

All questions I guess we will find out in time. I did not see the dyno numbers for each COPO engine. if someone wants to post that.

I also just noticed the 50 in "50th" on the emblem looks like a hot wheels track, and they moved the RS or SS emblem to the (upper) grill area instead of having it below on the lower (grill) air intake . Looks better .  I like this "Orange Crush" better than the Inferno Orange.

Hey guys saw that Chevrolet was teaming up with Hot Wheels again for a special edition Hot Wheels Camaro. This time the exclusive color is Orange, and it is not metallic like the 5th gen "inferno orange" . It looks closer to the Hugger Orange of 1969. I think they said the orange is to reminiscent of the orange tracks they have made for the cars since 1968.
For the die hard H.O. crowd this may be what gets them into a 6th gen. I know a handful of CRG members have a 5th gen on here, but I have't heard many owning a 6th gen.

What do you guys think in general of the 6th gen?
( A little lighter than the 5th gen, for SS models about 30 more horsepower. )

Other than Steve Shauger, and maybe Hawk, I am not sure if any of the other H.O. guys have their cars in a state to "cruise" them.

Maybe if they are getting towed behind a float in a parade?

So many H.O. cars out there, still in project stage.... :P :-X

( is this reverse psychology ploy going to help them get on it?  ;) )
