How's everyone been?

Just thought I would stop in and say hi.

Got to drive the SS today. I also got to take a pic because this one's been out on the streets so here ya go.


Overall I was pleased with the car. To be honest though, it felt a little underpowered. Now this doesn't mean it's not fast, I just expected a little more out of the V8. It was also the auto with the paddle shift so that may have been why too. I don't like autos. lol.
I think I've been spoiled though because I've ridden in the new ZR1 and driven the new Z06 so I think my standards may be set a little too high.

Are those CGM stripes?

And acceleration probably feels a little different after being in a 638 horsepower car that weighs significantly less

For me, the V6 will be incredibly fast when compared to my past driving experience.

CGM?

Yeah I know. It's ballsy, don't get me wrong. I think a manual transmission would be funner as well.

^^ the Cyber Gray Metallic stripes. it almost looks like they're on there to me.

it must be nice to be able to say the SS Camaro felt weak. if i could drive ZR1s & Z06s, id' be a little less than inpresed, too!
