Just bought my 1st Camaro 2010 2SS (pix)

Hello All. New to C5. Very excited to be here.
Bought this bad boy Thursday night:
I love the way it looks and drives.
My favorite feature so far is the Bluetooth interface so I can listen to my Youtube playlist while I ride.

Check it out, chrome in the gills:


You can see the four gauge cluster on the console:




Smile for the camera:


Staggered 21's:


Damn, she's got a fat ass:


Dude at work parked his Mustang next to me. It is like seeing a man standing next to a 2nd grader:



More pix to follow.

CONGRATS on the ride, and Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's, wive's, husbands, girlfirends and boyfriends here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!

Rims came with the car. They have a bowtie on the cap so I assume they are authentic Chevy.
Found them listed here: http://www.shopchevyparts.com/wheels...-92255508.html

Today I had my car valeted for the 1st time ever here in FL. Except in NY, where I had my Honda CRX valeted a few times back in the 80's and 90's. I have never had any of my other rides valeted. ( I adored that car and it treated me like a city-streets-sleeper-God. ) That thing would spool up those 130 ponys so fast.... light to light I ate IROC's ( and other cars ) ALIVE.... daily.

Anyhow, I have never had another car that deserved valeting.
But today I took my children on their 1st day out in the Camaro.
They loved it!!!!..... So did I.

It was actually easy in and easy out of the back seat for my 5'4 daughter. My 5'6 oldest sat in the front and off we went.

I bought the car Thursday night (after 11pm ) and haven't had a good chance to settle in since I work Fridays and Saturdays.

I took my car to an empty parking lot and adjusted the seats, mirrors, steering wheel, entertainment center. I also set up the Bluetooth passwords between my phone and the car.

This car has everything on my wish list: Amenities and power. The ability to play my Pandora and YouTube playlist via wireless directly into the ships speakers has been a dream of mine..... since watching William Conrad as Cannon in the 70's. (Rockford, the BEST of them all,..... used pay phones!! )

I am right at the 260 mile mark. Some city, some highway . Some rural. Some twisty, some straight. Fast (128 ) and slow.

Now that I have the car dialed in... it handled very well. Sightlines are cramped AND SMALL, BUT very WELL DEFINED..... feels like a combo of driving a tank, ( which I have done. ), and driving a formula one car ( never done that. )

My one issue is that the car takes a while to spool up... It's strong thru the power band... VERY smooth once the fire-cracker pops, BUTTTTT: while the fuse is burning there is a noticeable lag in power....waiting for the fuse to burn sucks! it doesn't bring the pain immediately. In my Grand Prix GXP.... torque went STRAIGHT to the asphalt
How do I fix that?
(My kids and I both miss the neck snapping torque of that GXP.)

Anyway... the point is:
I saw the valets drive my car and....... it looks amazing. I never knew fully what people saw when my other cars were in motion. I only saw them at rest... cause no one else drove them (lest I was IN the car)..... But I SAW MY Camaro IN MOTION TODAY, at a distance, mid-distance, and up close,....... and it looks AH-MAZING!!! I was STARING

The valets ALL complimented the car and all around said Camaro's are a favorite car of theirs. They actually had another Camaro and mine parked close.

Looks great. But hopefully you know how much tires run with those rims. Most people don't know till its time to buy tires

How much does a set of 21'' Pirellis cost? around $21-22 hunge? I spent more on a staggered set for my Grand Prix GXP. So I am good.
