I'm currently in Lawrence. Look for the Subaru Impreza wagon with a cracked windshield. It's green.

I'm from Olathe, Kansas. I have lived all around KC though.

Question: Since all of you know what the weather is like in Kansas, who thinks I need a second car for winter driving?

winters in KC are pretty weak. There will only be about 2 weeks of the year you can't drive your car.

lol I'd have to disagree. The weather itself isn't all that bad but the Roads suck horribly. They don't manage them well here in Wichita and when they do manage them... you are guaranteed some paint chip and dings for at least 2 weeks time from all the salt/gravel they lay on the road until it blows away.

I highly recommend a cheap daily driver if you can afford it.. especially for winter time because of all the reasons to harm your car.

Not to mention the corrosive salt and chemicals they put on the roads to melt ice. I'm not worried about control, but I always want my baby to look good. I'm either keeping my SUV or getting a cheap truck.

Man, cats out of the bag now! I was working for Don Hattan Chevrolet, but it got to slow over there. I sold 5 Camaros through them, and had to give them up. Now I am at Rusty Eck Ford... Trust me I didn't want to swich but sometimes it is just how it is in sales, I have to eat ya know! I have not order my Camaro yet, because I was at a Chevy store and wanted to take car of customers first. Money became an issue, slow store= no money, but I have cured that part now. With 11,000 on order there is no way I will get mine before next winter, so I will wait and see what goodies next modle year brings. Another reason for the swich a slight promotion to the internet dep.

What dealership did you order from? Please don't say Joe Self!

HAHA Oh Good Lord no.. I talked with them but I really dis-like all their sales people. Talked to some guy named Big Al ? and he seems fake.

Ordered mine from Davis Moore, bought my '04 pickup there as well. Im outside the allocation but I don't care, just means more time to save the green $$

You would be correct Big Al has gottin me a lot of sales because he such a dumb ass! LOL! I like Davis-Moore I thought about working there, but the traffic here at Rusty's is good. I don't know I feel kind of like a traitor, I don't like it. I had a couple of people that order out side of allocations, and a couple of more that where seriously considering it. Man I wish I could still deliver those vehicle and watch all these grown men turn into kids.

OMG, big Al?!?!?! He is the epitome of a used car salesman. I can't stand him. All he cared about was follow on business. I would never go back there just to avoid him.

Originally from Scipio, KS, moved to Orlando, FL then moved back to Kansas and currently live in Gardner, KS (just outside of KC). I am dang tired of this cold, crappy weather, however, so hope to move back to Florida as soon as I can.

Joe Self (Big Al) wouldn't tell me what they allocation was, i asked several times in about a 2 min convo with him.. its like its a secret I guess? I just wanted to compared who got the biggest allocation in Wichita area. lol and ye I know what you all mean... the dude just rubbed me wrong like he was trying to hard.. and was a big fake. lol

+1000 for Davis Moore.

I still haven't ordered yet because I have about 8 1/2 months left of service in the Army. I'm planning on sticking around after that if I can find work. I think that if you're going to invest some dollars in a Camaro then you should definitely get a "beater" or something for the winters. My Trailblazer SS flat sucks in the little bit of snow we've gotten (2WD...not the AWD version) but I think much of that is to be blamed on the crappy OE tires on that thing coupled with a serious amount of on again/off again torque management by the "stabilitrack" and traction control system.

For the guys a little closer than KC: are there any reputable performance shops in central KS? I can't seem to find anything online.
