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.
