Oh No!!
You are going to wish you could take this back.

"I did hear today, though, that at least some of the CTF cars with the up level interior are getting the door and IP trim replaced with ABL. Hoping Number 296 is on that list".

Guys are beat that like a dead horse!!

Hopefully this won't start anything. It's been understood that the 2LT and 2SS CTF cars were built with 1LT and 1SS trims. So going back and updating the cars to be the same as what is currently being built in Oshawa should not get anyone too excited. I hope.

Hey Number 3, now that I know you are part of an Engineering team, what parts are your team responsible for -- if you don't mind me asking.


BTW, great write up. I believe your assessment to be about as real as it comes.

Oh, one more thing -- who can I contact at GM to BEG them to make the LS-7 Camaro wheels available through GM parts? My wife LOVES those wheels and tires. I really like them too, but she is nuts over them.

Thanks again Number 3.

What will get people excited was the fact that you wrote "IP" and "ABL" in the same sentence.

To John Q. Public, the ABL is doors only. You may have let a proverbial cat out of it's bag *crosses fingers*


Now...where is that horse?

Ok so I actually went to bed early last night. We had blizzard conditions all day and I actually thought the forum was a little slow last night......Big mistake on my part. Number 3 posted one of the best most honest reviews out there. It is always a pleasure to read his posts but this one went above and beyond. Thanks for taking the time to really sit back and think about your cars, your likes and your dislikes. I am sure kyou havve to turn in some kind of report to GM on your CTF cars but thanks for turning one in to us.

No surprise Number 3 that you again come to the board here with a plethora of great information, a wealth of past experience and a point of view that everyone can understand. You are a gentleman and a scholar!

14,000 camaros bought on faith. With reviews like #3's and the magazines, probably tenfold or more will be bought on fact. I can't even fathom how many camaros will be bought once Joe Public who's been out of the loop, starts seeing these out on the street. Sales worldwide???? Wow.. GO GM. Thanks #3 for putting your experience in writing for us and the world to see.

Thanks for the "normal" write up....but wouldn't expect anything other from you! Thanks again for taking time with us in St. Louis back in December with Number 3. I can't wait to get mine home and start making memories!!

Oh...and don't think I'll ever see those EPA numbers...my family is even betting on how long it will be before I get a ticket...and big the fine will be!!

Beautiful review, Number 3, and thank you!! I think mine would probably end up reading the same way. Is the car perfect? No. Is it perfect for me? A resounding YES!! You've just solidified my satisfaction with preordering my SS even more.

Great write up... I can totally relate to falling hard for the new Camaro. I can honestly say I have never wanted a car so badly.

Thanks for the review. This sentence made me smile as I had exactly that discussion, plus FE3, with the Camaro team during Enthusiast Summit II.

Quote:
I will also say that I really like the Brembo brakes that are standard on the SS, so much so that if I could, I would make them a stand-alone option on the LT. The brake pedal feel is firmer, and the stopping power is noticeably better. But that’s what you’re paying for.

Thanks a million for your effort and honesty. It's really, really refreshing to get valid data, information and forthrightness. Nice to know that you love your job and jump into it with both feet.

I'm just sitting here patiently waiting for the V6 constraint to be lifted so my order can start through the system. I'm still hoping for delivery by Memorial Day~!

Best to all....

Great review #3. Thanks for all your time and efforts through the past 6 months. I loved the review, and can't wait for the car to be produced and delivered.

If I read his write-up correctly, he's an engineer on the Corvette team, not the Camaro.
