Glad you're ok. It makes me feel safe to drive my Camaro seeing yours crashed that bad and hearing that you walked away from it.

I am glad you are OK, and as others have said your Camaro gave it's all so you would be OK. See if you can get some small part from your car to remember it by. Kind of like that TV car commercial about the car going to the salvage yard, and taking off the gear shift knob and getting back into a new car of the same type.

The insurance company will own the car after paying off the OP. No parting out.

Wow! I'm so thankful that you are okay!! It does prove something tho, that car held up pretty damn good with that kind of a collision. Guess we know that not only are these cars amazing in performance and looks, they can withstand one hell of an impact too!

But you still need a {{{{{hug}}}}} I'm so sorry about your car :(

Good to see you wore your seatbelt. Good luck with your new Camaro. Go for the 2012 if you can, it handles better.

OMG! So very glad you're ok, but I know what you're saying about your car. Makes my recent accident look like a scratch in comparison. We just stopped in London last Sunday night on the way back from the Camaro homecoming in Oshawa.

Maybe you can sneak a little "piece" off your old car to keep a reminder of the good times you had with it. Hope you get back on the road again soon!

Thank you so much for the kind words, everyone! Also, I appreciate the steady reminders that, above all else, I'm lucky to be in one piece. As a result of this exercise, I think the replacement car will be cherished even more.

I did actually get to keep a piece of the car...and the way it came about was a bit ironic. After the crash, there was a pile of debris from my car (half of the bumper cover, a cracked headlight, some crash structure, etc.) that had accumulated on the sidewalk nearby. The red 'SS' emblem from the front grille was somehow perched on top of the pile, glistening in the sun. I nearly cried when I saw it, but forced myself to snatch it up and put it in my pocket. It's now designating that my toolbox is a Super Sport model.

Onto more positive news, do you think it's worth waiting on a 2012? I have an odd attachment to the unique 2010/2011 'Camaro' steering wheel because it reminds me of my Iroc wheel. If the improved suspension mostly consists of stiffer sway bars, I think that's something I can take care of myself on a 2011. I have no idea what a ZL1 will end up costing in Canada, but I imagine the price will be steeper than I'd like. Given that I've likely found a suitable 2011, I need to come to a decision by Monday. My dealership has agreed to honor all of the current 2011 incentives on a 2012 order if I do it next week, but the salesperson obviously doesn't know how much the base price will shift yet.
