Thumbs up Autoblog: One Night Stand: Taking home the 2010 Chevy Camaro SS

Anyone seen this? I apologize if it's a repost. I did search for the title.

http://www.autoblog.com/2009/04/09/o...evy-camaro-ss/

Quote:
At the end of the night, I drove the Chevy home -- a nice, light-traffic drive on the Merritt Parkway. I made one last pit-stop at a gobsmacked buddy's house before easing the big red beast into my own empty garage bay, where it spent the rest of the night. Come the next morning, it was time to drive back into the city. The auto show was beginning, and I needed to return the Camaro on my way to Javits. It was snowing when I rolled back up to the parking garage. With regret, I handed the key fob to the parking attendant, flagged down a cab, and joined the rest of the gang for the show. I thought about the Camaro all day. I need another shot at it. Less than 24 hours with it was just a tease. This was a one-night stand that I could see turning into a full-blown affair.

If this one doesn't get you excited about the car, nothing will.

The Camaro SS is so testosterone-infused, the FDA ougut to regulate it as a male-enhancement product.

Rock on! I want to go smash something, haha.

Nice read! I love this part:

Sure, you can find vehicles with a nicer interiors, sharper handling, and more power. And yes, the trunk opening is surprisingly tiny and the low roofline that makes the Camaro look wicked while standing still doesn't exactly help outward visibility. But fair is fair: GM nailed the important stuff with the Camaro. This is a car that grabs you on an emotional level. It is relentlessly, unapologetically, unequivocally badass.

Power is simply monstrous and on-demand. The Camaro SS is so testosterone-infused, the FDA ought to regulate it as a male-enhancement product. Shifts with the manual gearbox are reasonably short and crisp. The subdued, muscular burble at idle turns into a full-throated bellow when you mash the loud pedal. And mark my words: with an aftermarket exhaust, this thing's going to sound utterly malevolent. Children will cry
this paragraph just gives me chills....

and like with every review I read I get into the 2nd paragraph and shout "i want my car!!!"

Reading that article made something hit me.. I have been lurking on here for a long time and have occasionally chimed in. This article finally made me realize that I should look forward to the people's reactions when I take the car out. I hope that the people of the Louisville, KY area are as passionate and positive as the people that I am reading about when they are reacting to the car. I have always been thinking about how well I am going to enjoy this car. I hope that the people around me, my friends and strangers, also get enjoyment from seeing it and riding in it as well.
