It certainly isn't as bad as the Solstice with front plates, and I didn't think I'd have a problem with a front plate installed, but it does look very nice without. My father the law enforcement guy would not approve...

I've already participated in a petition with my state representative to get Ohio's front plate requirement repealed. We'll see how far it goes, but I'm going to stick with it untill there's nothing left to stick with.

Front plates do not improve public safety, nor does the lack of one hinder public safety.

Up until I bought this "winter" Impala a couple months ago, I haven't had a front plate on my vehicles since 1994 here in NY. 94 Z28, 96 Z28, 04 GTO. I never ended up with a ticket, got pulled over only once for a warning, and asked twice with the 96 where it was. One time was at a DWI checkpoint (that's an entirely different thread... - no, I wasn't, I just think they're unconstitutional) and the other time was at the Rainbow Bridge customs coming back from Canada into the US.

The truth I told both officers, the Sheriff and the Customs officer, "It's nailed up above the bar at the Buffalo Hooters." That was the truth- I had no use for the front plate since there wasn't a bracket on the car for it anyways. I was out front of Hooters one day with one of the assistant managers and I had happened to back into one the spots in front of the front door. Long story short- he said he wanted one of my plates for the bar- there were many others there already. He thought it was cool- I did too after thinking about it- to have a TRiM plate above the bar at the hostess station...

Just a little nostalgia from a time now long gone (along with that plate when they closed)...

It comes from Chevy with a front plate bracket- uninstalled. Generally, the dealer installs it, in States where required, during their prep.

This is a great photo posted by Heather on page one! Great side shot of car, with nice backdrop. I just did some minor photoshopping on it to remove trash can that was behind rear of car, and the front of tan car parked to the right...and did a PS auto adjust to bring out more blue in water.

Wow Derby I needed you for all of my pics! You do such a great job, and the car looks so much better without the front plate that you did--I actually saved your pics to replace a few of mine

Heather, after driving the 1SS, would you want to go for the 2SS or stick with the car you got to drive? I ask is because I cant decide between 1SS and 2SS. Thanks for all your help .

I was pleasantly surprised how nice the "base" V8 was, and I think that anyone who is looking for a powerful, fun to drive V8 will be more than satisfied with the 1SS. For the price point it really can not be beat. The cloth was nice, and seemed like it would hold up (it has so far). I personally am not a fan of the 4 pack, so that I did not miss. The stereo sounds good, and although no connectivity it does have the ability to plug in an ipod (just not radio controls). So, depends on what is important to you...Do you want all the bells and whistles and leather, or will you be happy without.

If you think you can't live without leather or will miss some of the features in the 2SS and can afford it--go for the 2SS. If you are comfortable knowing you don't mind cloth and don't need some features and want to keep the price down you won't be disappointed with a 1SS.

Personally I must have leather, and that makes a 2SS a must have for me-some of the other upgrades are just a bonus.

My husband is actually the one who will be ordering...When I became too involved and opinionated last fall (by visiting this site and becoming more informed) he surprised me with a Solstice GXP and said the Camaro is his to order the way he wants

I "may" be allowed to drie it!

Thanks Heather! And while I would like to take credit for the front plate delete-edits, those were actually done by 91t/a. (I live in a state that mandates the front plates :(...so I plan on atleast getting some vanity plates that suit the car). I did do some Patriot versions based on your Camaro, though. You took great photos, so there was very little that could be improved on them. Thanks again for this great thread, that has it all. Great photos, and great journalism! Here's a close-up of that photo.

thanks for your help Heather, to be honest, I really want the bluetooth. Probably the most important option to me. If later on GM can add C & C on the 1SS, thats probably what I'll get.
