The video was unexpected. I was watching them work on SS and just happened to be there when they said they were going to move it.

There was some fellow off to my left just babbling on. That's when I decided to get up close to the exhaust. I didn't know when they were going to throw it into reverse to move it.

I was there to take pictures originally. I hurried up and put the camera setting to video. The camera is new to me and it's hit and miss with quality.

NOT the stock exhaust system.......

that car was built in late fall of last year -- we are still working on final exhaust tone - it will sound better.

Automatic will not sound the same as manual with a V8 -- because the L99 has active fuel management. (Cylinder deactivation)

OK, I have to ask, it was going to happen eventually. If I get the SS auto, and IF I put loud exhaust on it, what is my reaction going to be? Will I be able to get used to it and consider that's the price I gotta pay for having a loud L99?

BTW, Is Cheryl and the gang going to be in Texas? Also, could you bring a Camaro LS3 cutaway poster to Texxezz? My collection has a bare spot between the autographed DI V6 and L99 posters. Thank the gang for the autographs. The auction was a blast!

This is even better news, the SS is going to sound like a beast come production.

No....in the first video. There were a couple guys carring on under the tree. On the second video they were talking about the ECM. I turned it off just as they were stating that the car was going to be leaving at 4:00 for Paris.
