Festival is always a nice stroll... always crowded... we walked no more than 1/4 mi or so from parking spot to center of the action... easy to spend som money there if not careful... I ended up with kettle corn, and a business card from a guy who does car plaques from multi-colored wood pieces... so my black Camaro would be done with ebony or black walnut for example... grabbed his card to look at doing an order over the winter... they are around 12-14" oval style in a front quarter perspective looking back... thought it would make an interesting spin on the typiucal Camaro promo stuff...

Hey all, I just picked up my Camaro on Friday!

2SS RS, sun roof, L99, CGM

The summer tires weren't too bad this morning in the snow and ice, but my snow tires should arrive mid-week.

Congrats SRM, where did get your Camaro? I was at Balise Saturday, talking to Wayne and he has an awesome full showroom of Camaro's, there is a real nice CGM 2SSRS there, Balise has 7 2SSRS Camaro's and 4 RS Camaro's, I love walking into a showroom full of the best Camaro's ever made.

I agree!!! Nothing like walking and having a bunch of Camaro's right there.

I went to Hurd, they are near where I live and I've been extremely satisfied with them before. They didn't actually have the one I wanted, buy was able to obtain from another dealer. The did have a CGM, but it had stripes and the flashy interior color - I'm just not into that.

I did not get the warm and fuzzies from Balise. I went there back when SS's where not on lot. But they had one only because the guy that purchased it lost his job. They marked up the price I think 10 grand over MSRP. Then the sales person kept giving me "sales" speak. I cannot stand that. Hopefully they are better now.

I just bought some Heritage wheels and tires on Craigslist and put some Pirelli Scorpion ice and snow tires on them. They look good on CGM! What do you know... it's snowing out right now...

Hi All,
NOOB to the forum from RI. I've had a couple of new Camaros in the past though. Had a new baseline '86 from Dan Angelone in Warren and the a new '88 RS from Liberty in Swansea. I was seriously looking at the new Challenger but I have to say that the new Camaro really has my interest.

Paul's right! Get some time behind the wheel... You'll be hard pressed to go anywhere else! Let us know where you live (I'm in Portsmouth) and maybe when the weather permits you can hitch a ride with one of us. I know it takes no excuse at all to get ME out for a joy ride! I had an out-of-town visitor out last week in fact when it was like 15deg out! I can tell you for a fact those summer tires do NOT like that kind of weather! :-)

Hi, new to the site, just found this. Picked up my car on Wednesday, love it. Maybe someone here can help me. I have several little specs in my paint, all over the car. They are like if you were to paint a car in a autobody shop you get the little lint specs. Not a big deal but I would figure from the factory things to be perfect. Thanks

Point that out to your dealer, my paint is nice and smooth.

Congrats on the 2SS and welcome to the site. And don't be shy about posting photo's.

Who was your dealer?

Congrats, did you buy your Camaro at Balise, I know they had a Silver Ice SSRS with the Black Hockey Stripe package, really nice looking Camaro.

Guys, how are the stripes when you wax the car. Does it make a discoloration on it?

Yes it was. I think that it is screwed right into the bumper. Poor design. I just ordered vanity plates so maybe it will look better. LOL

I think it may be riveted. Vanity plates will help, what are you getting?
