The Beginning:
I purchased my 2010 2SS/RS on 2/19/2011 – Summit White with Inferno Orange Metallic Rally Stripe Package, IOM Interior Leather Package. The car was the last 2010 model the dealer had and he wanted it off his lot. I kind of felt like I stole this car from them, but hey, they were willing to take my offer.

The car came with a GM car cover (grey with black stripes), and I also got to select $1200 in GM Accessories as a promotional deal. I chose the GMPP Exhaust, IOM Engine Cover, and some really nice Orange “Camaro” Floor Mats. Below are pictures of what I came home with on that unusually warm day in February, 2011. It was so warm; I collected bugs on the front of the car on my drive home, not normally the case for Central Illinois in February.
