Smile First post, and a thank you to all the Camaro5 members!

Been lurking around the site for a couple of months now, but finally registered. I'd like to start by giving a huge thank you to everyone who's posted info, tips, photos, videos, comparisons, etc. There's a lot of great information on this site, which was very helpful as I decided what configuration to choose.

Here's what I ended up choosing:
1SS/RS IBM with 6-speed auto tranny, Boston audio upgrade, and white stripe package. Opted for the car cover as well, since I don't have a garage to put it in right now. (Sorry manual fans! But, I know automatic is the best choice for me.)

I ordered mine Saturday (4/25) from Bacon Auto in Athens, Texas. I didn't feel pressured or talked down to at all, and they gave me sticker price. (I'll post a reply to that thread so they can be added to it, as well.) The GSM there said their initial allocation of 3 cars were spoken for, but I'm #1 in line for any new allocation they get.

I also had the opportunity to sit in their dealer car (the red V6 RS) and was quite impressed. I'll restate what others have already said, and that's the pictures do NOT do the Camaro justice! Mole and the rest of the guys on the line up there in Oshawa are really cranking out a badass car here. On a side note, I'm 6'4" and a pretty big guy, but I didn't have any trouble with headroom. Shoulder room was a little tighter than I'm used to in my Sierra, but that's a given since one's a truck, and the other's a badass car

For now, I'm playing the status 1100 waiting game like so many of you here, and look forward to the day I get that special phone call from the dealer!
