Don't flame me too much

After years of waiting on the ZL1 to go into production, I decided to go with another. On Monday (tomorrow) I place my order for a 2013 CTS-V Coupe. But you can bet I'll still be on this forum getting alot of info on mods. This site is a great community and like a family. I may not post alot, but I do lurk often.

Congrats on your new car. The CTS-V is an awesome car, but I don't know why you would have to wait for a ZL1 now when they're in production and shipping.

I bought my wife a 2011 SS covertible and when they announced the ZL1 I too got fed up with waiting (especially here in Canada). Wife said, I have the Camaro, why don't you look at the CTSv? I found a black diamond tricoat coupe (2012) and fell in love with it. I call it a refined ZL1...here is the link to the CTS forum

I'm referring to the time between when the Camaro was just a concept to the SS coming out, waiting for the top dawg to come out. Just waiting and watching. Once the ZL1 went into production, the allocations and funds coming together (on my part) was the waing I was talking about.
