$5k for 21" wheels? Is GM trying to achieve profitability via sales of 21" wheels on Camaros. There better be a LOT more than wheels for $5k.

I'd love to see a link that provides details on the "1" and "2" variants of the SS. Right now I'm thinking 2SS + RS + Boston Acoustics = $35,125.

Haha. You could also quote Sam from the Transformers movie when you're heading to the dealer with your parents.

Glad to hear that Fbodfather. I thought the exhaust note in the video sounded shitty; a bit on the tinny side. Homemade vids rarely do justice to the aural quality of a car.
