These are Midnight Silver

Took me a few reads to get that. So what do we think the AZ pic wheels are?

Painted LT non-rs 18" wheels.

And are the VR SS wheels the standard painted SS wheels (I think so), or polished optional SS wheels?

Hey, are the wheels on that car polished optional SS wheels or standard SS wheels? Thanks.

Awesome vids! It's great to see the car in candid shots. Especially when it drives up in the first vid. Looks great!

OK. I'll fess up. I drove it too. Nice ride. That definitely clinched it for me. I'll be placing my order shortly. I refrained from trying to replicate the burnout I did in my 69 though. Don't want to be the first guy to break one.

I can't believe you didn't request a "kinda hard" acceleration when they left your place and get the audio/video of it.

All you had to do is show them the V6 video and explain to them. We didn't need a burn out.

None of you that were there mentioned the the exhaust note either

THAT PICTURE IS A LT RS AND DOES NOT HAVE 18" WHEELS. LOOK AT THE HID HEADLIGHTS. THOSE ARE THE DARK 20" MIDNIGHT SILVER WHEELS.

We did discuss the exhaust while they were there. There's another video on YouTube of Bryan pulling out of the driveway. You can hear my wife say "It's not loud". I replied "We can fix that", and the guy videotaping says "Right".

I considered myself very lucky to even get a chance to crawl around the car, let alone drive it. I wasn't going to ask him if I could hammer it.

I understand all that, but YOU didn't have to. Just ask them to get on it a little when they leave while you video tape it, like the V6 clip.

I think the video you are talking about is posted in the thread here.

Don't forget that this car and any videos that end up on the web represent the person who is driving GM's car. We were very fortunate that Heather and her husband took the time to show some of the Camaro5 forum members the car. And when you hear the car in person and rev it to 6000rpms you wont be disappointed!

DAMNIT

Today I am finally heading down to Marco Island and Naples for the day after being in Fort Myers for over a week now, and was excited to be on the lookout for you... Now you won't even be there

I agree 100%. We're just lucky to be able to get a look at this car, and get some questions answered....as for burnout videos and hard take offs, I'll leave that for when I get my own.

A quick stop in Pittsburgh on the way back to the factory should not be to difficult.

I thought that the 4 pack guages were going to be available as a Dealer installed option later on. I would bet that you will be able to buy all the parts and install it yourself at some time.

Correct. One would have to assume though that even as a dealer installed option, the wiring harness is already there for it, used or not.

MAN, NO ONE ASKED FOR A BURN OUT. read the post.

Number 3 didn't have a problem accellerating hard enough to get sound.

Nobody asked for anything that would call into anyones representation of themselves nor GM.

So can you describe anything else other than "nice ride" since you got to drive it? How was the stick/clutch? Smoothe? I'm no pro at driving a stick and wonder how it rates on the difficulty.

The more HP you have, the easier it is to learn/drive a stick. That's the truth.

High performance and high style have always mixed with Camaro
enthusiasts. You can give your Camaro’s V-6 or V-8 engine a stylish,
show-quality upgrade with our gorgeous engine cover kits.
They’re available to match most exterior colors, allowing you
to complement or contrast the color choices to suit your style.
Match the engine cover with one of the color-coordinated
interior trim kits, too, for a completely integrated look.
The engine cover kits are easy to install and are easily removed
when service is required. They don’t interfere with oil fill or other
common maintenance access points.

The ride was smooth, pretty much what you would expect from a current model vehicle. Not too harsh, even with the 20" wheels and low profile tires. We had both windows down, but the wind noise wasn't bad at all. The wind was minimal inside the car when we were moving too. My 14 year old son was in the back seat and he said it wasn't blowing in his face much at all. Drove the car on a couple different roads at speeds up to 60 mph.

The clutch is very easy. I got used to it immediately. I let the clutch out in Bryans gravel driveway almost at idle so I wouldn't throw any rocks, and the car didn't sputter or start to stall. Once you get a feel for where it starts to grab upon pedal release, you're golden. Very much like what my 2002 Z06 felt like. Just for reference purposes, my wife learned to drive the Z06 in about 10 minutes and then drove it all the time without any problems. Shifter throw is smooth and relatively short. The clutch pedal is very light, actually lighter than my preference. I'm more used to the one in my 71 Vette, which takes a lot more pedal effort. I like it a little heavier, but as long as it bites good, I can live with the lighter pedal.

With regards to the ergonomics, I'm 6'2" and didn't need the seat all the way back. A lot more room than I expected. There was also probably 3" of clearance over the top of my head, and he said the seat will go lower. Visibility is good, but you need to watch the right rear corrner if you're backing in to a parking space. No different than any of the first or second gen cars I've owned.

I would have liked the car to be louder, but that's easily fixed. Even my wife thought it was too quiet. I don't know how much the shorty headers would change the tone or sound level, but I'm thinking a set of 2 chamber Flowmasters would be just about right.

Lastly, the view out the windshield when you're driving is great. Very much an old muscle car feel to it. It was a blast.
