    What he said. EXTREMELY rare. I believe there were only 69 made, including two Vettes(which were destroyed during crash tests). Aluminum 427 that weighed as little as a 327... Just badness from the factory.

    *not my quote, from a website...

    I'm pretty sure the 2 vettes that were produced were strictly ZL1 coded not ZR1 until they came out in the 90's


    apparently I was wrong about the two vettes being destroyed:

    I bet, I once saw someone trying to sell a Ford 429 SOHC from a Boss for around $30 Grand. A ZL1 motor would command a HIGH price. :eek3:

    GM/Chevy was selling the same engine that comes in the newer Phase III ZL1 option (the all aluminum 427), but I can't remember the price. Seems to run in my mind, $40k+...

    But agreed. Best. Car. EVER. If only there was some way to get them to release more Camaros (if they come back) with around that power, for at least 1/3rd the $100k+ pricetag, I'd jump on it in a heartbeat! :o Forget about Leather seats, or passing safety tests, I want a fast car, damnit!

    Uh, Go fuck yourself. I could give a rat's ass if it can bolt into the Camaro. Good for us!
    The ZZ572 bolts right into the Camaro too! As does a ZL1 motor! As does the stock LS/LT1! Lots of engines bolt right up to it. One simple aftermarket engine replacement isn't going to revive interest in it. So please, /yourself, and save me the trouble of placing you on my ignore list.

    But in all seriousness, just because I can take a semi-badass engine, for cheap, and drop it into my camaro, doesn't mean that it's instantly the best car ever built, like the ZL1 is :o
