Thank you for writing such a great article and reinforcing the knowledge that this car is definitely worth the wait. And the question again rises...how can Chevy build so much for such an amazing price?

What's interesting is that there would be some folks that would say this write-up is biased. I believe many of us recognize that it takes devotion and pure love to create such warm and visceral experience for the readers.

Nice job Joe. I know you were doubting yourself prior to going, but you did a better job with this than most of the "pro's" that were there.

Just jaw dropping, thank you for sharing your experience with this beauty. I would love to own the ZL1 if only I could afford one right now.

Great writeup. Incredibly jealous and now, more than ever, wishing I could afford the trade-up even though I love my SS.

I must say, I absolutely love my Avalanche, but this write-up and those pictures are making me miss Camaro that much more, and I'm REALLY wishing I could afford a ZL1!! At least they're not making it in IBM or Blue Topaz Metallic, or I'd be crying...

I still snoop on this site all the time, looking for updates on this amazing vehicle, and this thread has been the best yet! Thanks for such a detailed, exciting write-up. I feel like I was there, and I certainly would've enjoyed it!!

Excellent write-up, Joe!!! I'm so happy you were given this opportunity. Getting someone from our Community to share their thoughts really drives home a lot of what we've already read; and that most of that was true!

Congrats' and thanks for all the comments
