beautiful

Took the wifes car to the Saturn dealership today. What do I see when I'm getting ready to turn in? A car hauler full of Camaro's. My heart started racing. Hurried them up with the oil change and shot down the street to my Chevy dealer. There is a VR 1LT sitting in the parking lot. So I walk in and the sales manager grabs up his phone and says "hi is Jamie there?" Pretending he's calling me of course. They let me take it out for a drive. Unfortunatly it was around 3:00 with lots of traffic and school buses so the fastest I drove was 45 and I had to creep up to that. Blind spots will take getting used to. I see what some other guy said about the mirror. Thats just cause of the low roofline and it has to go somewhere. I will get used to it. Pulled back into the dealer and there were to guys standing there waiting for it to come back so I went ahead and got out of the salesmans way. Man oh man I can't wait for my IOM SS/RS!

BTW they can't sell it yet because they only got a generic window sticker so it will probably be there a couple of days till they get the actual one. Wexford, PA

VIN indicates it was made before the SORP (3/16/09). It would have been a CTF car but ended up in the dealer's hands instead, like the 40 IOM SS's that were at the Dallas, TX event.

BTW, I think there was one Silverado on the truck and the rest were Camaro's. Dealer said that they were all the V6 dealer cars. A little late getting to Western PA for the unveiling I guess, but they are here so that must mean ours are coming. I'm still pumped up from driving it. Anyone know where my wife put the lotion?

The first digit of the VIN indicates country of origin.

1,5=U.S built
2 = Canadian built
3= Mexico built
6= Australia built
K= S. Korea built

I believe he was referring to the 12th digit. On cars built after the start of regular production (3/16/09), this digit is a 1. On cars built before SORP, it is a 0.


Oh, and JamieMac....I sure hope you weren't smoking in that Camaro during your test drive.

LOL no I wasn't smoking in the car. At first I was wondering how you knew that. Then I saw the pic. Actually I realized I was leaning over the car with it and put it out. I go back to the hypnotist in a couple of weeks to start over :(
