Good looking car... congrats! I’m sure it was one hell of an upgrade.

Question for you since I don’t know Camaros... there was a ZL1 at a car show that I hit a couple weeks ago. It had a big wing on the back that looked factory. Is this an option or standard on some years?

that’s a Z28. The track edition with a 7 liter NA motor.
OP’s ZL1 is a supercharged SS

Congrats on your new ride!
I’m sure the tech, interior, and ride are much improved over our 2007 models.
Keep us posted as you enjoy it

I dug back through my pics to find shots I took at the car show. This is definitely a ZL1 and it definitely has a large wing. Is it a transplant?

Is it a 6-speed? And is it slightly-used? That's a lot of car for $56K, no doubt. Chevrolet really stepped-up the Camaro with that Alpha platform, my daughter's little turbo-4cyl 6-speed with ZL1 wheel/tire package is a great little corner carver.

Nice Pony Car! Camaro's and Mustangs are the biggest bang for our buck. Not sure why GM produced a 650HP Camaro- had to hurt the sales on the Corvette (Z06)?

I've said it 1,000 times, and I'll say it again. People who want to buy a Corvette, buy a Corvette.. Regardless of whether there's a 1,000 hp Camaro model available for 1/4 the money.

The existence of Camaro models that could run and gun with Corvettes has never statistically or measurably affected Corvette sales. But the old myth that "GM execs didn't want a Camaro with more power than the Corvette" persists.

Two different buyers. If you lust for a Corvette, no Camaro of any ilk or creed will sate your desire. Especially now that the engine is behind you in the Corvette.
