FINALLY in the club!

I tried to order an Imperial Blue Metallic convertible last April, but was denied due the xirallic crisis in Japan. Of course my next two choices were also metallic, so that was a no-go.

I decided to "settle" for a Summit White with a beige top, but was unable to get a 2011, so I had to wait for a 2012.

I haunted the gmconnects.com web site for months - the info there, while sort of scant at least lets you see some progress. Well, the car finally arrived on August 30st and I picked it up the next day. I've been happily tooling around in it ever since. Yesterday I drove out to Western Massachusetts and took a couple of shots on the road to the top of Mt. Greylock.

I love the solidity of the car, and it is just such a blast to drive. I can't remember the steering wheel of the demo I drove last spring, but the new one is just fine - really comfortable over the long haul. The heads up display is really cool too. The tonneau is a bit of a pain to install but once on it seems pretty secure. My only complaint is that the exhaust sound at low rpms is pretty weak (I've got the V6), but once you get it up to 2500 or 3000 it rocks.

The wait was worth it!

I tried ordering IBM also but couldn't because of the quake. My dealer found mine in a showroom 500 miles away. Had everything i wanted on it besides the ground effects and it had the 21" wheels instead of the 20" polished aluminum.
