Cool Winter delivery of new 2011, washed for the first time

Well, my 2010 2LT is long gone and I have been driving my 2011 2SS/RS for a few weeks now. I can tell you that my 2LT and my now 2SS are entirely different cars! I now have a 6.2 not a 3.6 litre engine that perform entirely differently. Both cars seem to be a completely different type of driving experience, but similar somehow...

I drove it for about 3 weeks before washing it (no contact car wash, of course!) and can show you a few pics of before and after the FIRST car wash! I drove it about Montreal today, with a perma-grin on my face all day. Even though gas prices were cranked up a full 10 cents today for no apparent reason, I didn't care a bit...cause every second in this fine machine is pure driving pleasure! eB

Used 75 Camaro = $3500
Rolling restoration over 10 years = $5000
$5 of gas burned in 10 seconds = Priceless!

after all the talk about storing them (including mine) it's good to see someone getting some use out of the heated seats and mirrors!

camarodriver: I hope your not doing this winter driving with the factory p/zero tires.

In Quebec, there is a law that by December 15th we are required to have winter tires on all vehicles. I always had winter rubber for all my cars regardless so on the new Camaro I am running new Pirelli Scorpion ice & snow tires. I had also ordered wheels but the dealer made a mistake and they only fit a 2010 SS not a 2011 because of the roller skate brakes. I will be buying other wheels next season as I much prefer not mounting and re-mounting the tires on the rims.

I would certainly lose control on the p-zero's in winter up here in our hard winters!

z0mfg idk wtf . . .

On a more serious note though, it's nice to see that people can enjoy their cars with no boundaries. If I could do it with zero consequence, I'd be doing the same thing.

I tend to agree! I am careful not to drive it in snow storms, but when I can see the road and traction is good, I take her out. This car simply works for me year round! I also have weathertech floor mats to keep the carpets pristine.
