First and foremost, a BIG THANK YOU goes out to Heather and Jeff. They were on vaction in south Florida and spent more time showing off the car than enjoying their vacation. Heather and Jeff you are great people and people like you are the reason the I have faith in the future Of GM.

Now for my experience with the CAMARO. The red you see in the pics/video is much better in person. I actually said, wow, that red is much nicer in person many times that afternoon. The engine compartment is clean, organized and looks mean as heck. Sitting in the seat will truely amaze you, it was sooo comfortable, I did not want to get out. All controls within reach and gauges easy to see. The clutch was easy to operate and the shifter is right were it needs to be. I am only about 6 foot, so their was no issue of headroom.

I think everyone will be pleasantly suprised with thier new CAMARO.

I agree with Bryan. Heather and Jeff, thank you so much for spending that much of your vacation letting us pester you and slobber all over the car. Everybody that was there with me loved the car. It convinced my wife that I can trade in her Acura for one (which I was really gonna do anyway). I'm sure my son will be telling everybody at school about it as soon as winter break is over, and I'm sure the video is already on his MySpace page.

I hope you guys have a safe trip home. We'll stay here and soak up the sunshine for you. Thanks again. Happy New Year.

NOOOOOO!!!!! Hee hee hee!!!
I have a 2LT ordered and did order the RS and then canceled it. I am of the opinion I should at least have a choice of "all season" and not wanting "summer" tires.

It also says "Late Availability"

Question for HeatherR (or someone else if you happen to know)....

What are the 9 speakers for the Boston Acoustics sound package (location, woofers, etc)? There was some guesses a while back but I've not seen a final answer to this.

They sell universal HID kits for around $100 a bulb with all the wiring on Ebay or just do a google search. I have alot of friends that converted their bulbs to HId's for under $200. My buddy has an Avalanch with HID headlights and HID fog lights, he lights up the road! He did the whole thing himself for around $350 and that is 4 bulbs and wiring. Thats how my Camaro will be no RS for me. But the hailos do look nice!

Boston Acoustics Sound System
– 6.5-inch woofers in each door
– 1-inch tweeters in A-pillars
– 3.5-inch center channel speaker
in the upper Instrument Panel
– Seven-channel sub-woofer
on rear shelf

That only adds up to 6.

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.

So did you get on it hard at all? Even once? I just can't wait for the performance reviews to come out!!!!! I test drove a few LS3 vettes and almost went with it, loved the power and feel but when it came down to it I need the 4 seater... So how did it drive?

Been there, done that. Noone had a final answer. Just a bunch of guesses which quite possibly be right. Unless you know of something I haven't seen....... I'd just like some confirmation if it's possible.

This picture has me wondering if I could stand the black moldings.

This is my favorite pic so far, but I planned on RS, that may change.
