Okay...for the record...it had nothing to do with the speed. In fact...I think the sheer power of THR22 and the heavenly stabilitrac helped me get out of that 'situation' with some....grace. Wouldn't you say? Heeheehee

It was dark...and the median was not clearly visible from down in the parking lot....

So was he asking you because he sawTHR22 parked, heardTHR22 run or that THR22 left some "racing stripes" in the parking lot ?

You should not try to go boating with items that have wheels on them. Nor should you try to go 4 wheeling with vehicles that have 2 wheel drive...

True but there is still something very unsettleling about seing your brand new Camaro going the wrong way in traffic.....

I did think it was pretty cool he liked the Camaro...

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!!!

Need I remind you........you didn't even know until I called you. Guillermo was watching...and apparently amazed at how 'natural' I looked pulling a U-turn (which, btw would have been a donut if it weren't for Stabilitrac.......)

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....

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 :(
