I have only had it a couple of days, but I have taken it out and drove around both evenings after work. When I get back from driving around I try to clean it up a bit before letting it sleep in the garage. There is always a fine dust on the rear and here or there, but if I wasn't 6 inches from the car I couldn't tell it was there. It is dusty here in Utah also.

I got the CRT because I liked how it looked in pictures, wanted red, but didn't want the bright VR. I was hoping it wouldn't be too dark... and it is not. It really is amazing how it changes with the lighting. Sometimes a little orange (my wife says pink, but it is orange), sometimes a bit burgundy, and then sometimes just like the brochure. It is a beauty.

Agreed, welcome to the club man, hands down the best color on these cars. I can see the argument for IOM, but I think once youve gone metallic, theres no going back.

My baby arrives tomorrow morning-

Well after 2010 now gones and my tongue still dragging on the ground for years, everytime I saw a camaro pass by. The orange was by far my favorite, I almost bought Synergy green, last year but passed. I bought a brand new F-150 FX-4 Crew in Red Jewel Metallic and everyone loves my truck wherever it goes. It is lifted and Metal Mulisha Rims on 37 and 20Inch. I was dreaming oneday our beloved Camaro would come in a color like my truck and now finally it did. Well I gave in. I bought a 2012 CRM, SS, V8-Hurst short throw shifter, custom painted grill, ground effects painted to match, and now must decide on which wing, I have the lip on it now, but like the high rise one. I am getting window tint done after I take possession and will add crystal dark grey dual stripes from lip spoiler over hood --over trunk, over back bumpers. I am ordering custom Forgeline rims painted to match--Centers black and outer lip and rim CRM. I will add straight pipes, Headers, Intake, and many other mods later. I would like a highrise hood, but need to find the right one. Maybe will order a ZL-1 hood from parts to make it look bad ass. As soon as car gets to the lot in the morning I will take pictures. I am so pumped, cannot wait--woooo hooooo---I will add some lettering on the side also and a front window eyebrow, with pin stripe

Here is a picture of my CRT ZL-1 taken at a car show next to my 68 Camaro. The photographer used some sort of effect which makes the CRT look incredibly awesome. Enjoy.
