I do not like the $$ topic to be honest. I recommend that if your here to make money dump all your first generation stuff (as the stupid money is all gone) and INVEST in 3rd and 4th generation stuff (as it now cheap) . I hope the market continues to correct it's self.

I been holding out for the new 5th gen. Z and talk now on the 5th gen. boards it's in the $50,000 plus range and it may not even be a Z, but a different name.  Looks like I'm keeping the CTS as my primary driver.  

John...this might be old news for you but have you seen this? 6.2L Supercharged V8...looks like you won't have to wait much longer...2012 Z28 due out by the end of this year!

Marty, it's called a ZL1 instead of a Z/28.  I spend a lot of time on the 5th generation forums.

Still looking at $50,000+.   http://www.chevrolet.com/camaro-family/

Well...its too bad. GM is making a huge mistake by changing the name. They could have cashed in big time if they'd kept the name, badging etc... IMO.

Marty a first gen ZL1 is probably worth twice as much as a Z28 maybe more. So the ZL1 should draw quiet the attention.

You are correct...The ZL1 is as you say worth at least twice as much as the Z28. The problem is, how the ZL1 is being perceived on line.

Maybe I need to do a little more research to find out how the First Gens progressed back in the day. Did GM do the same thing back then? Jumping from the SS straight to the most powerful of all First Gens, the ZL1? If so maybe there is still hope for the intermediates. If this is true there is still time for the rest of them to be developed before the dooms day date of 2016...

I would expect the folks at Chevrolet did a whole lot of market research before deciding on the new model name, plus they may have other plans for Z28 of which we are unaware.  You have to remember they are marketing to the most likely buyer group.  I was told at a dealership this past weekend that most of their Corvettes are bought by 50-60 year olds, 30-40 year olds buy most of the Camaros.

These prices always start off high. I remember when I was tracking the new (07) Shelby GT500 the prices were very high. In fact, dealers were allocated only one or two depending on their status. Most of these dealers either kept theirs or auctioned them off. Many of them brought 6 figures. Sure feel sorry for those guys that took the bait. Be patient, I'm sure the prices will come down.

Pete, sure hope you are right about the Z.

Hey Marty,

Was that 69 SS Z28 suppose to be an RS or was it one of those super rare one of one cars built for a some GM executive? LOL

Not to be a thorn, but the Garnet Red on Red Z sold at 47.5. I have a tendency to fast forward through the Camaro "stuff" until I see a Z :)
