Decided that I should head out early - (lots of spinouts and such....)

In fact, it is 4:10am........ (.....*yawns*.....)

now - Shaniqua -- whoops -- I mean, Brother Ezekiel - has Ice/snow tires all around - and just as his older brother 'Thor' proved - these cars do very well in ice and snow! (.....I DO feel guilty getting him all covered in salt - but hey - we build 'em to drive....)

As I'd mentioned in previous threads, these ZL1s (at least in my opinion) ride the best of any Camaro we've built over the past 45 years. In fact I was cruising down Mound Road past the Chrysler plant (....even the Hemi Pickups seemed to be trembling just a bit....) -- thinking to myself - "Wow, self -- this rides extremely well even with all of these rough patches - " -- and then I looked down at I realized that the suspension setting was on "Sport" rather than "Touring" --

Did I mention that the ride is quiet at 70mph? (albeit with a bit of 'rumble' from the ZL1 exhaust)

For those of you who will be purchasing one of these legendary driving machines, you're in for a real treat - and it's our intent to exceed your expectations -

My hat is off to Al Oppenheiser, Tony Roma, Mark Dickens, Aaron Wing, Cheryl Pilcher -- (I'm forgetting many names - sorry!) and the entire ZL1 team - bravo, guys and gals.

(......and yes, I'm prejudiced -- you got a problem with that???
)




Ladies and Gentlemen - I can't think of a better time to be a Camaro Enthusiast --

Let "Ultra-Grin" begin!
Have a safe trip and have fun in Milwaukee. Since you are the only person that can drive a ZL1 and be able to talk about it, , we all are going to live on your every word. So don't be shy, not that I have ever known you to be, and tell us everything about 'Brother Ezekial' aka "EzeBro". Is he a manual or an automatic? Please keep us informed. I will start a thread so it will be easy to put your experiences in one place and we all can go to just one thread. Thanks Scott for all that you do for all of us.

Now, at 4:15 pm every day you will have to toast! All the customers who come in from 4:15 - 5:15 will be the recipient of your absolute "best price" due to the new official Happy Hour! It just starts early for you!


And, to DRAKE.... so good to see the pic of Shaniqua. Nice to see her waiting for daddy!
I like the Happy Hour Wonder how that's going to go over at work
