My question is how did you only drive 40 miles!? I picked up my GTO at lunchtime during work and ended up taking the rest of the day off LOL. That was just a little 06 GTO. You have brought home a monster. I would have filled the tank up and drove it until she was empty if I were you! Congrats though. When I come back from overseas, I will have one eventually.

Congrats and great write up. Wish I had the $ to have one, but, enjoy reading about how the Camaro (in any configuration) brings out all the positive emotions in each new owner. Enjoy the new ride & hope wife doesn't catch you sleeping in the ZL1....

WoW I absolutely LOVE Camaros!! That thing is a Beast!...Looks Awesome! My plan is to buy one as soon as I can afford it.

I do love my 2SS but I just can't stop looking at the ZL-1! I wish you many years and miles of nothing but fun & excitement! Happy motoring!

I just got mine today in Cleveland. It's number 220 and it's just amazing!

It's the best sports car I ever drove so far, and the list includes Porsche 911, Porsche Cayman R; Mercedes C63 AMG coupe, M3 coupe, CTS-V coupe.

The steering is light and fluent, the manual transmission is butter and very short, the suspension is firm but not rough, the brakes are strong, the engine and torque are overwhelming (so I moved the setting from 2 to wet) the sound is astounding and the looks is better than in the pictures. I only drove it 40 miles today and sorry, it didn't get a wash yet. I already forgot the 5 months wait time and I have a big smile on my face and in my heart. It's an amazing car and it was worth the wait. Thanks GM for building the best (affordable) sports car yet!!!

Enjoy the pictures. I'm going back to lay my bed in the garage (after my dear wife falls asleep)
Beautiful!!! Enjoy

Congrats. Just curious, how could you tell it out handled all of those amazing cars from a small, break-in period drive home? I know you're excited, but better than a Cayman R?

I can't read anymore of these. My excitement is already at a fever pitch and I have to wait a while.

Mine is orange, must have forgotten to build and ship it first. LOL.
It's even worse that Joe's went to the same dealer mine is, it could have had company!

Great to hear about people driving them!
