I have had 3 camaros 1 vette and my current GTO and when I saw the concept 3 years ago I knew right then that this would be my very first new car, only a few months to go

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.

This will be my first brand new car and my first camaro. I always liked the camaro but it was out of my price range at that time.

Actually i was purchasing another used car but the price for a new camaro is just right.
I had previously owned 3 cars all used. So I'm really excited and can't wait for it to arrive.

My GP, G6, and Silverado were all new, though this is my first "performance" vehicle. My GP was supercharged, but it still only ran mid 14's.

This will be my 3rd brand new car in a row. All Chevys.

My first two were used. Both Fords. I'll never buy a Ford again.

Yep, the Camaro would be Zabo's first brand new car (and the first time driving a Camaro too). He couldn't be happier, so much so that it's forced him to refer to himself in the third person.

Awesome.

I went through 1 used car, 2 leases, 1 new car puchase, now 1 more lease...

So this will be my 6th vehicle, but I guess it will kind of be my 5th "new" car... nice, since it's 5th gen

Also, this is the first time I've ever "ordered" a car. Tell them exactly what I want, and get one through a dealer locate.

In fact, this reminds me of a story... this one dealer cracked me up... this was for my 2nd lease... I went in, told him exactly what I wanted, including the color (blue). He said, "how bout a red one? I've got it in red." I told him no... I wanted a blue one, and told him to get it from another dealer. He said "well, I don't have blue, but I can get you a red one..." so of course, realizing that he was an idiot, I left. Next dealer... I told him the exact same thing... and without even looking at his computer, he said, "ok, I'll get it for you." And sure enough... he went and picked one up from another dealer (an hour or 2 away I think), had it to me the next day. Just shows how good a dealer can be if he wants to be

This will also be my first brand new car. I previously owned a 1994 Jeep Cherokee, now a 2006 Chevy Cobalt 2LT Sedan, then to my brand new 2010 Imperial Blue w/ Silver Ice Stripes 2LT/RS Chevy Camaro.

16 DAYS UNTIL PRODUCTION AND I CAN'T WAIT!
