Great review. I have to say it is the best overall car I have driven. The polish of the setup is amazing.

Interesting observation about looking like an SS. I just traded my Black SS in for a Black ZL1. I drove my ZL1 over to my parents house this weekend. Neither of them noticed it was a new car. I took my Mom on an errand and she noticed the new radio. It was not until that point that she figured out that the car was not my old SS. My Dad still has not figured it out. Also a co-worker and I always fight over a great parking space. He has mentioned that he has noticed I have parked in the good space but has not noticed that the car is a ZL1 not an SS. (Even funnier as I have talked with him about me thinking about buying one.)

For those that are into cars they will know what it is.... but to common folk it is just another Camaro. Not a big deal as I love it and that is all that matters.

I can understand glancing at the side of a new ZL1 and not really noticing it's not an SS, but for a journalist to get in and drive a totally different vehicle and not realize it till the next day makes him clearly Moronic.
