Bah!! Four wheeling....All I wanted to do was cut through traffic to get to the parade...it was Mike and Doug's fault for revving their engines and egging me on!!! Yeah, that's it!!!

Heck, you're gonna have 10,000 miles of test driving behind the wheel of the new Camaros before you need to decide for yourself !!

Already decided on my end....

And what can I say...it's addicting. The only healthy solution....is to buy one and feed the addiction, obviously!

In all truth, I've been a dealer and test-driven an SS....three times since the car's come out. Two were used, and one was new but the salesman was all about it (that time was sorta funny...). I felt a little guilty each time. But I got over it. Also test drove a Mustang and the Dodge dealers wouldn't let me in a Challenger...so I got my bases covered early.

oh yeah. i got paid $25 once (by the dealer) to go romp on a new 08 Mustang GT
it was actually a bit of a let-down because i'd just got done beating on a 97 trans am right before it

have you tried the new 5.0 yet? it's pretty stout. the brakes - notsomuch, but it handles nice

i almost drove an SRT challenger this spring but didn't have enough of my lunch break left :(

Grass Rooster ?

From where we were (a nice high vantage point) it looked like 3 drag boats running on green/brown water

Nah, I really have no interest. Test drove a '10 and I know there's no chance I'd buy one so I don't wanna waste my time trying to find a dealer who'll let one go for a ride. (the Ford dealers here are REALLY stick-up-the-butt-ish)

Ok Set to take 22 in for some warranty work...

I'm headed to the same dealer Speedster bought his camaro from....

I've told them the whole deal on my car, and they seem to be cool with doing non powertrain warranty repairs..

I have a lug nut that's probably cross threaded and I need a new PDIM...

so we'll see if they give me the runaround when I get there.

Hoping for the best.

Tell us how it goes. They were really great to work with up front. Let's see how they do on the service side.

"We are sorry. You added a supercharger. Your seat knob is not covered."



Sorry....lol. I'm sure they will get you taken care of, no problem. I just had a bunch done too. If you find something that you know is on "the list" of TSB bulletin problems, you might want to print it up for them as you bring it in. My guys looked right over the two problems I brought mine in for and I had to point them out on the list for them to get taken care of.
