Only the special ones, I know several of my previous cars. My 74 Camaro was October 10, 1973, my 65 Corvette April 12 1974, my 2007 Saturn Sky March 25 2006, my 2010 Camaro December 31 2009.
Funny I have a hard time remembering things I did yesterday though..

LOL.....I know what you mean !

I've gotten where I write down the date I ordered it, the date it was built and the day I picked it up in the owners manual so I don't forget

Nothing like seeing someone who really loves their car and happy one year anniversary as well. I like your ride but I think the stock wheels looked great before you installed the ZL1 insert but now that you have that insert installed the wheels actually take away from the car. That insert is aggressive and calls for some high powered wheels. It's like getting a ground effects kit and riding on doughnuts. I really like tha car but with that insert stock 18's fall a bit short. I still like it though.

I will just have to disagree with those statements. I hate the larger wheels on cars nowadays. I like the look of some meat on them instead of shinny sidewalls. These wheels remind me of the old IROC-Z wheels from the 80's, a design I always liked.
Plus the extra cost of tires to fit those larger wheels. Like I said before I have never been a fan of aftermarket wheels and none of the other factory styles suit my taste either.

Congrats!!!!! I'm a week away from my 1 year anniversary although I have put far more miles on mine than you have (22k). But like you, most of those miles were with the top down and I absolutely LOVE my vert! I love the way it looks, drives and the compliments I get everywhere I go. I have also just installed the MRTv2 and CAI that I got in a package deal from Apex and the improvements have made my car even more fun.

I am looking forward to many more years of fun with the top down..

Well one year and one month and in the last month I had to take it in for a rattle that developed. I had been trying to track it down but sometimes the sound seemed like it came from the right front around the glove compartment then other time it sounded like the door. When my son was in we went down to the tail of the dragon and on the way down he found it was the plastic header panel on the convertible top. I took it in and they found one of the clips were broken and ordered a new one. I got a call today and have an appointment to get it installed on Thursday.
Other than that the car is still doing great. Unfortunately not much top down weather this month since we have gotten rain practically every day. So far this year we have gotten within 3" of the total rainfall average for an entire year.
As of today there are 13,800 miles on the car.

The part came in and I took the car in to be replaced, well they found out it wasn't clipped in but bolted in, so they had to send it out to a top shop they use for repairs. In the meantime thay gave me a 2010 Ford F150 Lariat to drive. What a dog.....5.4 V8 that had no guts at all. I think they call it a Lariat because after driving one for a while you want a rope to hang yourself with... Well back to my car. It only took them an hour after getting the car to replace the panel. Now all is good with no rattles... I then took it and washed it to make sure there were no leaks...I can happily report it's perfect!
