Are you trading up in the Camaro world?

Just curious are most ZL1 buyers moving out of an exsisting Camaro?

I'm moving (or should I say moved) out of a 1SS manual to a ZL1. Sad to see it go.. I went a headed and traded it into my dealer a couple weeks back and was very satisfied getting 28K for it. I had the car one year and three months although only put 4500 miles on it. I figured it might be a good idea to get my trade value locked in before the market price drops..

I still have my daily driver 2011 LS to make the regular commutes although its nothing like an SS.

Any one else getting a good trade in?

Car #305 hurry home!

I am going to sell my supercharged SS soon, I want to hang onto it but with only 6k miles, I rarely drive it and I can't have another car I don't drive (says the one who writes the checks). The the SS goes and the ZL1 will take its place. The ZL1 will be my roadcourse car.

I'd say you did pretty well on your trade.

First one for me. My wife had a 67 convertible with a six when we first met so it will be her second. The Vette stays.

Traded my 2010 rjt ss had 25,000 miles on it with near perfect interior and 1 scratch(and new rear tires too many burnouts). Traded it for $28,000. And got a 2011 silverado LT for bad weather days so the ZL1 doesn't get dirty. One of the most painful things i have done is trade my red dragon.

Sort of, his has been an ongoing project. I was really wanting a Z28 and hoping there would be one and figuring their probably would. I sold my 1999 SS and my Harely Road glide 2 years ago to start to prepare. I bought a 2002 Z06 to have something to drive and track while I was waiting. When I read the specs and saw the price on the ZL1, it covered most of what I wanted in a car so I sold the Z06 last fall and ordered my ZL1. Been waiting for something to drive ever since. Exciting to see one home!

This will be my first Camaro, but I've wanted a '69 Z/28 since 1973. What I'm finally getting more than surpasses that dream.

Sounds like you've got a great setup with the LS as your DD and a ZL1 soon to be your weekend warrior! Congrats to you sir! I am jealous!

Thanks to all....I can't wait to get my ZL1.. and I agree with ********** staying out of the pedal will prove very difficult during break in..

I think the trade in numbers for 2010-2011 Camaros show the these cars are holding some pretty good value. I remember purchasing a new 96 Trans Am convertible and keeping it 2 years with only 4K miles and all I could get was 16K from an original 31K MSRP.


03/30/2012 - (4200) Shipped (vehicle is shipped to the dealer or interim point of delivery). Its getting close.

I wish I could get better tracking.. For all I know the car could be there and the dealership guys could be out on joy rides...

All you guys who got good trade in deals. Did you revert your car back to stock or leave the mods on?

My 1SS had an SLP hoop on it and the dealer made me replace it with the stock one. Otherwise it was stock with the exception of a custom rear spoiler.
