My Black Mamba RS

So how will I start. Since when I was a kid my passion are cars. I bought my brand new Camaro this year of January. I've been living here in Edmonton, Canada for only a year from now which is winter last for 5-6 months LOL , basically it is not accessible during winter and for me it's only a summer car driven even though I still bought it, buying a brand new sportscar is like beyond of my expectations. I am only 22 years old and my first choice was really the 2SS but when I found out that my insurance would be around $300-$350 a month then I decided to go for the V6 which is I pay $270 a month for my insurance still high but not like the V8. I am very happy and please with my choice and I've been getting so many complements and recognitions of my car.

maybe he is older enough and the years of driving experience. Yeah people say that when you turn 25 it will drop your insurance and also when the year goes by without any claim or accident.

Monthly Camaro Insurance premium

Multiple car discount, bundled with home insurance discount, 20+ years no accidents or tickets on State Farm Policy.

I thought I was paying the same monthly payment as everyone else lol. What does everyone else pay?

P.S. I would guess my Escort Passport 9500ix detector has saved me from at least 50 tickets. Nice investment. Can see the police from 2 miles away, plus it's a smart detector, meaning it learns the false signals, knows where all the speed traps and red light cams. Hands down best detector for the $.
