I've bought 5 Brand new cars in my lifetime but this will be the first one that is EXCLUSIVELY mine.

The rest have been for the wife or for 'US' as a family.

So in a way, this will be 'MY' first brand new car. I had a used 73' Z28 in high school.

I bought my 2000 Camaro SS off the showroom floor in 2001. That was a great feeling and the first new car I ever bought. This is the first car that I've ever ordered before so I'm looking forward to it even more cause I KNOW I'm going to be getting exactly what I want.

The one advantage of the showroom floor car was that it had been there for long enough they just wanted to get it out the door. The sticker was $31,790 on that SS and I only gave about $27-28K for it. I was sooooooo nervous driving it home though. I'm going to have the same nervousness with this Camaro cause it's the most money I've ever paid for a car before.

I bought my '95 and '02 with a few thousand miles on them. The wifey has always gotten the new cars, so this will by MY first. I imagine this will be my last, so I'm going to make it good

I can only imagine how that felt. Im going to be so excited/nervous as well!

Hope i dont stall it leaving the dealer

Most i paid for a car was 7000 for my 94 z back in 02, this car is like getting a Bentley for me, OR better yet a new Camaro

Yes, it will be my first brand new car. I don't count my husbands truck although we bought it new, it's his.

I'll bet you have a much better chance of leaving some extra black lines on their pavement than anything else

If all goes well with the Camaro purchase, it will be my second new purchase. I was nervous driving my truck the first time, but i'm guessing that it won't be as bad as when I get behind the wheel of the 'Maro. 190 HP compared to 400 HP...big difference!!!

I am 22 years old, and this would be my first new car I have purchased. It will also be the first car I have bought from a dealership as well.

Bought both a 94Z and a 96Z new (other new cars too). Traded the 94 in on the 96. Really missed the 6-speed when I did it but the 94 was a base Z28 and the 96 was fully loaded up through leather and t-tops. To answer your question, they were both GREAT experiences; of course buying both around invoice didn't hurt either.

First thing is make sure I have full traction conrol off,
Ive seen to many people try and do a burnout with it on and
make a fool of themselves.

my first mods will be traction control reversal and skip-shift eliminator kits. Just like on my 2000 SS

Removing traction control on mine, up here in Massachusetts, would make December - April rather harry. Not that I couldn't do, just not worth it when you can turn the traction control off manually already.

It's REVERSAL. It starts off instead of on. You turn it on when you want instead of turning it off when you don't want it.

Sounds like we all did it tight. Groom the spouse WAY ahead of time so there is no doubt.

BADZ, thats awesome. I had my 73' in 1985-86 so as I was buying my used one, yours was being made.
