Watch out this weekend Chicago

I am an engineer with GM and I'll be driving an orange Camaro out to Chicago this Easter weekend. I'll be in the Western and Northern suburbs, so keep your eyes out for me!

I honestly don't know what this one will have. I'm swapping with another guy so I'll see tomorrow when I get it. Yeah, I'll make sure to post some pictures when I get it.

I live in the northwest suburbs. I'll be keeping my eye out for you!

Any hints on where in particular I may want to "watch out"?

I like this version of an "Easter Egg Hunt" much better!

Oh sure, everyone wants to go to the Northern End of the area. While I live down near Joliet.

Geez, That stinks!

Glad to see so much excitement! I'm not sure what my schedule will be like with my family but I'll be stopping in Carol Stream, so you're gonna luck out Gotham. I'll also be driving up to Grayslake sometime during the weekend. I'll try to keep you guys updated during the weekend to let you know where I am. Right now, we're thinking about driving out tonight or possibly Friday morning.

I'll let you know Zeus.

I just picked up the car and it's got the RS package. Cloth seats, so no orange interior though. It's gonna be one fun drive!

Oh hell yeah!! finally I get some good news, this week sucked so bad.

Please let me know when you're in Carol Stream, if you want my cell# to text me, PM me if you don't mind. If not, I will be on the look out for your posts!

I work near Grayslake but not over the weekend, so you picked the best parts of IL for me! AWESOME!

I would love to see the Camaro in person!

Sweet mercy those pictures rock!

I think I don't need my camera now, I need to physically see it.

But.... I'll bring my camera just in case.

Thumbs up

First....Codeman71,

THANK YOU MAN!!!!!

Everyone else that hasn't had a chance to sit in one that actually was gunning around the streets.... Holy %$#^ ! This V6 had kick, I don't know what's wrong with some of the people that look down on the V6. I've never had more fun in a car in my life.

It was a Lt/RS IOM in color, no stripes. It was a sunny day and I gotta say one thing first, ANYONE that ordered the IOM, needs to sue all camera vendors or current photography tech. The orange looked so sharp in the sun, it was mind blowing. I totally get people when they say photos do the camaro an injustice. What a beautiful car!

The interior was cloth, Beige. Really nice and for a sec I wondered on getting Beige interior. Got to blast the Boston speakers, yup I could hear nothing else, I can't wait to get my Metallica playing in my Camaro!

Codeman let me sync up my G1 phone, called my buddy who didn't believe I was in a Camaro (he didn't hear me talking about it last night) via Bluetooth.
So easy to sync, now I don't have to worry about buying a Iphone.

Funny part was Codeman gave the Camaro a little gas as I was talking to my buddy and he heard that and then BELIEVED. lol

Took a couple of sharp corners, love how it hugged the road, the ride was smooth as hell too. I'm 6 ft and plenty of room, I couldn't believe it! I'm a husky guy and fit in it just fine. I felt like I was in a cockpit of a jet. I was hoping to see a Mustang and thought I saw one parked but it wasn't. I think Mustangs sensed who was in town and stayed in. I don't blame them. The return of the King, time to bow.

Being in the burbs, we had a lot of soccer moms on the streets, got a few looks but I'm imagining people were not sure what that hot car was? I hope I didn't drive Codeman too crazy with my excitement over the Camaro. You just can't help it.

The photos posted above from Codeman is the Camaro I was in, so nothing my photos would be repeating. Just added the one of me in the driver's seat.

The backseats... yeah, no one is going in the back but kids or a laptop, it's not built for more than two adults in my opinion.

Yeah I had to call my dealer and let him know what happened and then called my friends, had to share the Camaro love.

I needed this day, it made my year so far, it sucks I don't have mine but this so helped to calm me down with all the people getting their Vin#s before me.

I found some peace... so hurry GM... can't hold in the inner madness too much longer.
