The final ARRRGHH Thread (really!). I finally get mine Monday. Pics/Vid comning.

Hello Everyone,

First, thanks to everyone who put up with (or ignored!) my rants over the past 3 months. I take back everything bad I said about GM....

My car Vin 1080, 2SS/RS Silver) finally arrived at my dealer this past friday. He was covered in pre-inspection dust and gunk but was still the sexiest car in the lot.

Special thanks to CAMARO RICK. He knew exactly where my car was this week and accurately tracked it from Oshawa to my dealer. (As a final stab, my dealer told me last week to expect delivery in JULY, and GM said "It's on hold". Sigh...)

To thank Camaro Rick for actually HELPING me I promised to give him a call once I pickup my car and drive over to his home or work and shake his hand. (We'll take some pics and post them here). When he gets his Camaro we'll definately get together again for more pics, and hopefully some cold beers shared with a new friend.

So the car arrived on Friday but as it was Friday, the dealer-prep procedure could not be finished until Monday. IT FIGURES, but it didn't matter that much...

I got in the car. My 6'3" 190lbs body fit perfectly inside it. Lots of headroom, and lots and lots of legroom after a quick adjustment. The seats (leather) are the nicest I have ever tried. (I hope they feel this good after long drives).

When I fired it up I was REALLY surprised. Did it start? Oh wait I hear it.. the new Camaro is SO QUIET! No kidding, I had to open the door to properly hear it and even then it was much more quiet than I expected.

Before anyone scoffs at this, hear me out. I replaced the exhaust on my Trans-am with a "loudmouth" system and I HATED it. It was so damn loud and "rude". 1 Week later I swapped it for something better of course. Today I really appreciate low noise inside the cockpit and I think once you try it, you won't miss the ROAR of other less refined cars...

Anyway, I FINALLY pick it up on Monday. I plan to take lots of pictures and video and will post them all here.

If you are still waiting for your Camaro, like everyone else here has said, Don't give up - your car will come soon, and it is definately worth the wait. (I'm saying all this and I haven't even driven the thing yet..!)

Cheers!

Good note. It helps a bit for those who've been waiting on their pre-orders. I'm expecting mine in early July, but hoping for something quicker

Congrats Mark. I'm glad to see you hung in there thru all of it and didn't give up (yes, I've read almost all of the 'customer complaint' or 'arrrghhhh threads'). I think you may enjoy it even more with everything you went thru to get your Camaro!

This doesn't sound like an "ARRRRGHH" thread at all... maybe you should've named it the "YAY!!!" thread

This thread is still officialy an ARRRGH thread since I am still not driving it yet.... tomorrow, natural disasters aside, this will become a YAYYYY thread..!

Mark.

PS: My girlfriend of a million years asked me if I wouldn't mind picking the car up later this week because she wants to take the day off and "finally organize these darn closets!".

Opinions anyone?

it sounds like your gf of (a really long time) wants to know that she is more important than your long awaited car. a ring should ail this.

Tell her you had plans to pick her up in your NEW car, and whisk her away for a romantic weekend. Just be sure to spend AT LEAST as much time looking at her as you do the car!!!
