Yeah I saw that, I am sure camaro2lt has sold plenty, I just don't want to spend that much money and get ripped off I guess. I am just being cautious.

Post a pic, which looks better, the hole from just a few days ago or the new scrape? Might as well throw in the Ding, I know that ones not your car, but just for some comparisons.

Took the Beast out for a spin yesterday, around 8pm or so, and as I'm sure all of you have experienced since you drive camaro's, that every yahoo that sees your car is all of a sudden compelled to Race you. So I'm heading towards the hi-way on ramp and I see an Audi in my rearview mirror, A6 or 8, and I do enjoy stepping on it a little bit, especially those curved on-ramps. I can no longer see him in that curve, but once on the hi-way, here he comes, and the traffic is so-so, not heavy, but still sorta busy. Anyway, this genius is dead on my ass, I'm in the left/passing lane, so the lane opens up and I take it to 120 or so, and the genius is still two feet off my ass. Then both lanes open up, maybe a quarter mile stretch or so, and I'm just about to put my blinker on to move over into the right hand lane, doing around 100, and I see this jerk whip the car over and floor it to pass me.

Now obviously if I was one of these dumbass yahoos I'd have floored it to, and a quarter mile opening is not much space before you reach the cars up ahead. So I actually let off the gas and hit my brakes a bit to make sure this idiot had plenty of space to pull back into the right hand lane.

So he's probably telling all his buddies how he blew away a ZL1, when the reality is I never tacked it over 4,000 rpm's. I was applying my brakes when he passed me because over wise it could of turned into something really stupid and dangerous. Sure I was gong sort of fast, but that's normal driving for me, but that's in the open stretches. I don't even have to use my brakes, I see a car up ahead and I let off and just naturally slow down so by the time I reach the car up ahead I'm doing the same speed as they are.

The point I'm trying to make is, there's no winners in a situation like that if someone doesn't have the smarts to foresee the danger. Really didn't want to take part in a car fatality. I may not have been the one to crash, but I'd have been just as guilty for causing the accident. Oh yeah, it would of been an accident, this kid didn't have a lick of smarts.

I've had such retarded people mess with me on the road

You're absolutely right when you say everyone becomes a race car driver...I've had trucks, vans, ricers, more vans, more ricers, all try to race me or rev at me at lights

Then other day I heard an SUV revving next to me and I just thought he was trying to learn how to drive a manual or something. Then he was looking at me smiling ....I rolled up my window

Crazy isn't it! The Owners Manual should have a chapter with warnings of the side-effects of owning a Camaro. Should be called something like "The Dumb and Dumber Effect". It could have little antidotes from Pro drivers. Can you imagine the stories they have to tell about every dumbass that wants to be able to say "I just whipped pro driver so and so". Unbelievable how stupid some folks think.

I like driving fast, but only when there's nobody around, I'm not endangering someone else. My favorite is being in one of the PTM modes, usually 3, and in a hi speed curve. Just when you reach the apex, its pedal to the floor, and the PTM will let the car go to its absolute maximum speed. As soon as it feels its starting to loose grip it will torque/throttle down and stay at peak and gradually increase to stay at peak. In other words, your not going to loose control and oversteer, the ass end isn't going to come out from under you, the PTM/Nannies will take over and keep/hold you at maximum performance! How cool is that, yeah Baby!

Just let them go like you did. They have something to prove/make up for and you don't. Simple as that...

He's not wrong, I know it's a burden sometimes, but just put on the sunblock! I hate doing it too, but it's better than getting melanoma
