I never thought I would see the day when I could say im upgrading from the a V6 to a V8...Well today (12/31/12) was day I went from being a V6 camaro owner to and V8 camaro owner. I originally went to the Chevy dealership with no intensions of buying anything. I took a walk around the dealership parking lot to see what they had in stock for camaros and such. All i saw were V6 2013 models and took a look at the new Blue Ray Metallic which was nice. As I walked down the next row I saw this Inferno Orange Metallic 2ss/rs that just calling my name. It was a used 2010 but the car was mint and it already had a Borla exhaust atak axle back system on it, so I just had to ask what they wanted for it. I decided its time to test drive this thing because I never got behind the wheel of the V8 so I really wanted to see/hear/feel the difference between the two. The dealer said let me go get the keys and temp plates so you can test drive it. Well he comes back and puts the temp plate on the back and what number is it? Thats right its number 28, my lucky number. I took it as a sign that maybe this was the right thing to do if the price was right. Well I took it out and noticed a huge difference in power and handling, when I got back I was sold on it. I told them to hold it for me Ill be back on monday and well now I own a beautiful fully loaded L99 IOM 2ss/rs. I was actually really upset and almost felt depressed after trading in my V6 camaro because of the memories that I had while owning it even though I had a V8 now. Its amazing how something like a car can truly make you feel on the inside, but I know ill have some great memories and times ahead of me while owning the V8 and looking forward to modding it.

So without further or do, Id like to welcome to the Camaro5 community SSydney
SSydney is a fully loaded 2010 IOM 2SS/RS L99 with IOM interior and gloss white rally stripes, I picked her up with 26k miles
