Obligatory first post pics

Like so many, been lurking for a couple months enjoying/absorbing the info and entertainment of the forums.

I've always enjoyed Camaros, especially the '68 and '69 SS and had been debating about buying one to restore. But when the C5's came out, I hafta say that I absolutely fell in love with the looks... mix of retro feel with modern vehicle. When the Convertibles became available I really started actively watching pricing, etc, but wasn't ready to jump in.

Then when traveling in May, I took advantage of renting a convertible SS for an extended test drive, mainly with hopes of it being uncomfortable enough on the 2 hour drive out of the airport that I'd be able to strike a pricey car off of my lists of "would love to have one". No such luck! And I ended up finding it quite comfy and pushed about 3 more steps toward buying.

So ... now one is parked conveniently in the garage, but I did get a few pics of it as required by the folk here ...

(already popped open the big fridge and made my self homely)






Yup. HUD for safety, though had to kill the headlights for camera to capture it ...




And, yeah ... it goes pretty fast ...





Yeah well ... having problems getting myself out of the car to actually get pics of the exterior ...

Congrats and welcome! You need to post a few more pics during the day and of the outside of the car. Now, truthfully, did you really think it was going to be uncomfortable or did you just want another reason to buy it?

Was expecting stiffer ride. I injured my back quite a few years ago, and figured that the sports suspension had the potential of making longer trips rather rough on me. Was pleasantly and unpleasantly surprised! (pleasant, since I absolutely love the car and the 2 hour short trips were super comfy, unpleasant on the wallet).

I put about 650 miles on the rental ... and so far this past week have put that many on the new car.

GnyaTek, CONGRATS and Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's and wive's here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!
