What's the First place you'll go in your new camaro?

Just wondering what the first thing on your to do list is with your new camaro?

I'll probably pick up a buddy or 2 and just go for a drive with no schedule or time line! I thought about a road trip. but might put that off a couple weeks.

Next will be go see all my buddies I've told about the car.

Home.

I'll have to drop off the vehicle that we rode to the dealership in (since I won't be trading in anything on the Camaro). Put the truck or the Tahoe in the garage and then go for a drive....probably over to my parents house or my in-laws house to show it off and drop off my 3 daughters so my wife and I can go for a nice drive.

Drive to muffler shop to get mufflers replaced. (since stock car will probably be too quiet.)

Take car to show members of family. Allow siblings to drive it.

Then Drive to car wash at 8am.

Wash a few times/Wax. take car home. drive on special occasions only, and stay away from potholes.

Drive Home, then after my family has seen it, drive to my boyfriend's house so I can rub in his face the fact that I have a faster car than him!

Don't count on it....

I've got a route already planed out!

A few of my Aunt's and Uncles, and a few friends. But I won't be stopping, I'll rev untill they come out to see what the hell all the noise is about, then I'll burn rubber, and be outta there.

Reason being: Everybody on that first route doubts that I'll be able to get one...I'll show them, I'll show them all!!!

Its funny how we all seem to be the same!

Everyone doubts me too, I mean i am will be 25 when actually purchase it and have a great job, but people still doubt.
We will show them all for sure. Chances are I will be living in Austin, TX by then, so one of my first trips will be a road trip to Michigan to show it off to everyone who did did not believe

First trip will be from the dealer to the tint shop. After the tint shop, I'll head on home to install my stereo amp and subs. I'm sure I'll go over to Circuit City or Best Buy to but something for the install because I will have forgotten this or that. But, after that, it'll be driving no where in particular. It'll just be for a nice, long drive (with my new tint and tunes).

No idea, but since the initial fanfare will have died down on the coupes, it will be fun to be riding around everywhere with the top down.

My luck it will be raining the day I get my vert.

Yeah right. That's just a laughable concept. Sitting at home knowing my car is at the dealership waiting for me?

I'd be a wreck.

I will probably show my family first and then cruise around town for a bit to hear the rumble but not revving it too high cuz i want the piston rings to seat properly and all that good stuff. After +500 miles, its all gonna come out of the box

No need to do "break-ins" anymore really. Engines are pretty much broken-in when installed these days.

At least, that's the last I heard about it.

Plan A: (assumes top dog car has 500+ HP)
I-20 Westbound for 87 miles west of Fort Worth to State Hwy 16 (mile marker 361). Southbound on Hwy 16 through the heart of the Texas Hillcountry to Kerrville. Then Westbound 25 miles to Hunt, TX. One of the best drives in Texas...especially the 30 mile section between Llano and Fredericksberg.

Plan B: To my tuner

Day 1: Down the 60 onto the I-10, off the I-10 to the 202, 202 to the 101, 101 ALL the way around phoenix back to the I-10 (with a short side trip to near by Scottsdale Barret Jackson area). I-10 back to the 60, then home

Day 2: tint shop (must have in phx)

First months weekends will be spent in fabrication of the audio system. Nothing huge, just probably a pair of 12's and a 10 with amps and cap with surround upgrades if the factory isn't up to snuff.

After that its just a bunch of small road trips and the normal daily driving~

Drag younger sister, who is a Mustang-driver, with me to dealership to get Camaro, followed by road trip to see older sister, who is also Mustang-obsessed. Then mother of all road trips with my younger sister in the new Camaro, just because I can. Probably Vegas, or someplace like that.

I'd cruise to Santana Row near San Jose, CA and watch as heads turn from the common everyday lambo or ferrari to this new Topless beast I have.

I don't really have a plan. Just plan on spending about 300 dollars in gas the first few days. I'm hoping I don't have to spend 500+ dollars on new tires in that time too.
