Cool Should Chevy Call The ZL1 the Z28??

Back in 1969 the ZL1 program was, as we all know, 69 Camaro's with aluminum 427's. Now Chevy has made a new 'ZL1'. But.... they have made a ZL1 without an aluminum 427.

To me, a Camaro called the ZL1 should have an aluminum 427 period. Chevy has a beautiful aluminum 427 - the LS7. They have put it in the Camaro that was at SEMA two years ago..... amazing car. Why build a ZL1 without that engine in it???

The current ZL1 should not have been called a ZL1.... it should be the Z28.

While it would be cool if the zl1 had a ls7, its kinda a silly arguement. If they did call it a z28 you could argue that it wasnt true to its roots as well.
