Well today was finally the day. Two years and ten days after giving Stingray Chevrolet a deposit check on a "possible Z28", I picked up my ZL1 today along with afirehawk1. Keith thanks for posting your pictures here, it was a truly great day for both of us. See the "IT'S TWINS" for the dual delivery.

Let me introduce you to MAXINE. She is Crystal Red Tint with Exposed Carbon Fiber Hood, Polished Wheels, Sunroof, Suede Package Interior and Cargonet. My deepest thanks to the entire Camaro Team for designing and engineering a truly phenomenal vehicle and the entire Camaro Build Team in Oshawa for building a world class supercar.

I picked up Maxine at Stingray Chevrolet in Plant City, Fl. and drove her 240 Miles home. During whole ride I felt like Fbodfather was hiding in the car somewhere waiting to yell at me if I did not follow the break-in guidelines. It was a great ride home in a very special car. Thank you Chevrolet and enjoy the pictures.

Maxine saying goodbye! While driving home, she heard the cars racing at Sebring Raceway and just had to stop.

She wanted to do a few laps on the track before she went home but was told that car with as much power as her's were not allowed on the track. Something to do with too much grip and melting the track beyond repair. It was all very technical. She was very sad.

Maxine made it to her new home where she was introduced to her older cousin, Tiffany. The two of them should become best friends very soon. Once they stop bickering over garage space.

Crystal Red is a beautiful color but very difficult to capture the Candy Apple Red depth of the color. She currently has 280 miles of driving fun behind her. With Ultragrin all along the way.

This is the most beautiful color I have seen on a ZL1. If I can ever afford to get one, this will be the color I get. Congratulations on the new ride.

Outstanding! More pics!!

I like how you see some dark (almost rust color) hues in the paint. This may be the outfit that I will go with.

Congratulations on finally getting your new ZL1....! I'm a little envious, because I made the decision a few months ago to forego getting a 2012 ZL1 because of all the dealers out here on the west coast who slapped $5K to $15K premiums on top of MSRP for the limited-allocation first model year. I've never paid even MSRP for any of the Camaros I've purchased so I couldn't get myself to do it this time. I also knew the 2nd model year would be a different story (and as we recently found out the 2013 model will have some nice upgrade options available, as well as the convertible we already knew about). But, I am impatient, so in two weeks I will take delivery of a 2012 CTS-V Coupe in Crystal Red Tintcoat and Ebony-Saffron on the Recaros. Hopefully that will ease my pain a little. Yes, I love that paint! Your car is beautiful! I'll be taking mine to Hennessey for some potent upgrades after I break it in...enjoy driving your new ride! By the way, your blue 'vette is equally if not more killer than the ZL1. Let's have a beer sometime.
Cheers
