New to the ZL1 gang

A few months ago I started looking around for 5th gen ZL1s. I quickly came to the conclusion that these were hard cars to find, seemed like no sooner did one pop up at a dealer was it sold! Finally, about two or three weeks ago, I found this one. Had nav, recaros, ECF hood insert, low miles and certified. Went and test drove it and it simply had to come home with me. So, I pulled the mods off the SS and traded her in to take this beast home.

Still waiting to get my NJ plates so I can submit for custom plates. I think i'm gonna go with "BUMBL Z" lol

Here's a pic of the old ride, and the new. I have more pics on my phone, just gotta upload them in a bit

Nice. You'll love the ride quality and handling...and most likely then power.

Already love all of them. I keep saying despite it still being a camaro, it's a night and day difference from my SS

Congrats.

The ZL1 is in a whole other level from the SS and other trims. IMHO.

Enjoy.

Besides the obvious power, their composure in a banked on or offramp is smile enducing.

Congrats! Its funny because I don't even consider the ZL1 like any other Camaro. It seems like a whole different car to me.

Thanks everyone! Yeah I was looking for red, yellow or white, so when I found this I was quite happy. Also just found out the last owner pulled the fuse on the NPP lol
