I am very impressed just with all the tid-bits, it's like a soap opera....you get a little more each day, I can' t even sleep at nite , I can't stop reading this site , my wife says I'm obsessed... Think I'll have to get a cot for the garage when I get mine...so she won't get lonely of course. I don't think my wife will mind if I have a girlfriend.

Wow. I'm continually impressed with new information about this car. I like the concept drawings and its cool to see the LS7 style wheels and the front scoop hood. I am very interested in what Al meant by "and we're not done!" Even if it's not a new model and something like more improvements to ZL1, I'm very proud to be a chevy enthusiast right now.

An excellent, informative write-up. Very well written. I think GM should use this write-up in their promotion as an outsider point of view

Part 4 is up, guys.

That's it from me...I'm tapped on pictures (great ones, anyways) and story...thanks for your compliments. It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I hope will happen again. What a thrill this car is to drive...and what a thrill ride the Grand Course at VIR turned out to be!

Please, I encourage you to ask any questions you might have about the car...how it feels, how things work, etc, etc...I am SO enamored with this car, it would be my pleasure to share what I know with you.

Dude. Really thank you so much for the wonderful write up. Up until now I have been holding back my emotions on this car. As I didn't want to be overly excited and drive my wife nuts again.(She about hit my reset button a few times when we were waiting for the SS)
Your insite of the vehicle is so much more in depth compaired to the other writers and journalists. Maybe it's because you eat, sleep and live Camaros, either way you did a great job.
I love all the pictures, but the IOM holds a very special place in my heart as it is the colors of the U.S. Army Signal Corps. If you're asking, Yes the Signal Corpse flags will be going on this car just like I have them on the SS.
Thanks again Dragoneye and GM, I can't wait to get my ZL-1!!!!!!

HOOAH!!!

Thank you, Scott. You and your enthusiasm for the brand is an inspiration for me. This car struck a chord inside me that I didn't know I had. It's...hard to explain. It sounds awful mushy...but I feel like I have this bright moment in my life that I can look to no matter what I might be upset or frustrated with...and I can't help but smile.

Great write up! You represented our camaro5 family very well. Every tidbit I read gets me more anxious and excited to place my order. If all goes well, I hope to place an order for an early 2013!

To everyone at GM, Thanks for a car of a lifetime!

Now to go make more room in the garage.....

Man this thread will sell ZL1's. I bought my 2SS in October and have been thrilled with it. I like reading the ZL1 section but until I read your posts, I never really wanted one. I figured if I was ever going to spend $60k on a car, I'd get a Vette or something. Now I can feel a little itch inside me. I have a feeling that itch will only get stronger as time goes by
