This car is an amazing deal for the price. For about $26k, you are outfitted with a 310hp LS1, a gorgeous interior, and slot car handling. While the throw on the six speed could be a little shorter, the gears are quick and very broad.
This is my second Z28. My first was a '95. I dropped about $3k into my '95 in just performance mods, and the 2001 is already quicker, even stock. I decided to go for the $2500 option of the rally kit, which adds a split front air dam, side skirts, and a rear air dam, and a small, subtle wing. I'm pretty happy with the choice.
For those of you looking for a relatively inexpensive asphalt eater, this is your ticket. 0-60 in 5.2, 1/4 mile in the mid to high 13's. Six speed gearbox. Leather interior. Great handling. All for under $30k. You can't go wrong.
