Love the car, Old Jedi. I hope you enjoy it.

Also, I'm partial to the blues myself, but that shade of red has me re-thinking...

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
Actually I rented a CRT Caddy CTS for week to take the family on a vacation. And to also make sure that this was the color that I wanted to live with for a very long time. The color is everything I hoped it would be and the car is even better than I hoped. I loved the cooled seats in the caddy. I spent 11 hours driving it home and the cooled Recaro seats kept me cool and refreshed all day. The CTS-V is more refined than the Camaro, but will be just as much fun. Thanks for the nice words about the Vette. I hope we can get together soon.

Congratulations, CRT is beautiful. I come here everyday and admire the ZL1 in CRT.

I do not see this color option on the Chevrolet "build your own" website.

CRT is amazing! I had AGM ready to go (waiting for next allocation). The photos totally changed my mind and I'm going with CRT! Funny, the website shows it as more maroon but these photos do it justice. Enjoy!

So far you can only view it when you are building an LT or SS

OldJedi,
Man, I can hardly wait until I can order my new vert with everything that you have on yours. Do you have the 7" touch screen radio and did you upgrade with the large bass woofer? I will be considering adding CRT pin stripping on the wheels that Iv'e seen on here, It look really, really sharp!

You can view CRT at this location but it comes across as maroon. http://www.chevrolet.com/camaro-zl1-sports-car/

Gorgeous Dave!

Did you custom powdercoat the wheels? If so, what did you do with the car while you had all 4 wheels pulled?

Thanks-
Bruce

Bruce,
Looking into powdercoating, I just used 3/8" pinstripping to see if I liked it,,and yes I do, checking some options.One body shop wanted 1100.00 to strip them down and totally repaint them 2 tone.

If I pull the wheels I'll make board that has the lug holes in it and bolt it to the hub so it holds the car off the ground.

No, the 7" screen will not be available till the 2013 models are released. I did not buy the subwoofer, the stock system has enough bass for my likes. I am enjoying driving with the windows down and the sunroof open listening to the exhaust tunes.

Best color bar none, those black plastic accents and how they mix with the hood and badges and everything is just awesome.

If i had one of these i would struggle daily to go with black wheels or keep the stock look.

The black wheels with the red accents are bad ass while also being classy and could easily be a aftermarket part.
