i love this new ZL1, im very tempted to trade my 10ss in for this. But id be ticked off if in 13 they comeout with a more powerful or a new color thats hot. Cant believe they dont offer a blue. Horrible. Bring back that royal blue or whatever it was called. Imperial was nice also. I wont lie I love grabber blue on stangs. Just think gm needs to offer a blue.

In 2009, I surprised my wife with a 2012 SS/RS. I kept the secret for about 2 months and gave it to her on our 27th wedding anniversary.

This past saturday, 4/7/2012 she convinced me that we needed to go the Chevrolet dealer to look at the new Camaro and that we should maybe trade hers in. I was emphatic about telling her there were no "new" camaro's in the DFW area. The ZL1's had been delayed and were only now getting released. Thinking if a dealer did have one, surely it was allocated/sold and there was no chance I could do anything but look from the outside. But hey I was having a good day so I went along with her plan as she assured me that my son told her he saw one there. Thats when I started to get suspicious.

Upon arriving, my son is there with the sales person we normally deal with. He goes into a song and dance about how its the general managers car, and what would it take to convince him to part with it....yada yada yada....

After admiring the car a little longer, my son walks up to me and says....congratulations on your new ZL1 and hands me the keys....Apparently 8-9 months ago they conspired to surprise me with my dream car.

Btw...we still have her 2010, I let go of my 08 Z06 to make room for this beauty...

It looks like the 1 on the ZL1 badge is crooked...

Also it looks like your tailpipes aren't lined up either...

Dude, why don't you go down the hall, last door on the left that says Ford. You never have anything positive to say. I hear the Ford room has been looking for guys just like you, and where everything is perfect all the time. And meets all your standards, and where your mom is there to tuck you in at night.

The angle is normal, the SS and RS are the same. The ZL1 is more pronounced because it it longer.

Official BLACK ZL1 Photos Thread

I finally had a chance to take some better pictures of the car. It is a REALLY nice car. Super impressed so far. It feels a lot different than my SS's did.

He's right about the 1 being crooked, I already notified the owner in another thread about a week ago and he noticed it and had it fixed
