in a trailer park!
ILoveEnzo said:Well I guess we agree to disagree, I think of the big three American automakers Chevy is the worst (Think new Monte Carlo SS; 303 hp to the front wheels, got torque steer?). For me a good car emeges when it offers something that cars of similar price do not, Z-28 never struck me as such a car. You are correct that it would be unfair to compare the Chevy to a Ferrari, and its probably unfair to assume that the Chevy is at a trailer park. However, when I see a Z-28 I laugh, not because I think I'm better or classier, just smarter and wouldn't buy an ugly Camaro.
Yeah your talkin about the Trans Am series, and the Camaro's with the 302. (equivalent to new V6 accord acceleration & 1/4 mile times: 7.4 0-60 and [email protected]) Neither is impressive.Brian said:I suppose you are too young to have seen Mark Donahue wipe up the competition in his 69 Z28. The street version was almost unbeatable in the hills on back roads. There was not a Ferrari at the time that would stay with it.
And besides it does not matter what you like or don't like. Be respectful of other peoples likes and dislikes. It's just polite.

Ferrari 365 in any form comes to mind as a 69 model that would more than stay with the camaro
To answer your question: I drive an 04 Audi s4.
I understood your point but I think junior missed it.Pete04222 said:Don't get me wrong guys, I wasn't saying the Z-28 was a bad car, quite the opposite, I agreed with him that it was an awesome car for the buck. But for him to put my car down and compare the performance of his car to one that is 25 years old......
I guess the 308 is timeless, even when it is an antique people still use it as a benchmark for performance.
No I am a couple of decades too old for one but it is probably all the young lad could think of at the time given his situation. I am not even a Chevy fan but he so misses the point he cannot see that possibility. I have put him on ignore. He is far more suited to Fchat, he would get along well there. They embrace trolls. I sure hope this place is better in controlling his type. I would hate to see it go into the sewer like the other place has.Pete04222 said:Brian,
You don't have a mullet do you?
Pete,Pete04222 said:It is funny about how the Ferrari seems to be the benchmark by which all other cars are compared.
Ferrari owners are jerks. Just ask my wife.FerrariKiller said:The one thing that makes me think that the story is false is the way the Ferrari owner is shown. Ferrari owners are constantly recognized as jerks - but this sounds like it is straight from a B movie.
