3 months with Number 3, so a Camaro review by ME

I've just been keeping track of our experiences so far with Number 3 and also the SS we've had for the last month. Nothing technical, but I hope you find it interesting. I've posted a lot of these thoughts in various threads over the past 3 months so I thought I'd try to put them all together in one place.

4 pages?!?!?!?! Do you think I have nothing better to do with my time than read more crap about this stupid car?

If you answered "Yes" then you'd be correct

Thanks! Now off to reading I go...

Edit... done reading. Great writeup! It seems your "issues" (for lack of a better term) with the interior are right in line with many other people's. You're making me want to save money and go with the 2LT over the 2SS lol.

Very nice. Sounds about like what we discussed in 296 a couple weeks ago. See you tomorrow!

Number 3, you have been consistant with your assesment of both cars the whole time. That's very encouraging. I don't know if maybe I should switch to the V6. You sure do make it sound appealing. It's probably too late for me but anyone getting the Lt should feel pretty good about it.

It's great to see a write up from someone who has actually spent time behind the wheel of both cars, for more then just a test weekend or week, or whatever. They can pick and point, and lots of times see things the short quick tests just won't pick up.

Thanks #3!
