Upgrading to a 1SS

Hey ya'll. Traded my 2012 Black 1LT for a 2013 Silver 1SS. I pick up the SS Tuesday.

I loved the LT and I thought I could live with the high-maintenance black and V6. I was wrong.

Below is a picture of what the new 1SS will look like. I will probably have some type of rally stripes painted on at a later date.

Congrats on the SS upgrade and you'll love rally stripes...................black, carbon fiber or a combo would look awesome on it.

You won't regret going to silver, It's like they say once you go black you'll Never go back So much easier to keep clean.

That's the exact trade I have considered before. 1LT to 1SS. NOBODY here carries a 1SS. I asked the dealer once and he said in recent memory they have only had two 1SS cars and both were ordered by customers. Did your insurance change drastically?

I built a 1SS LS3/6 speed manual on the website today. Victory Red, no options but the white rally stripes and the blade spoiler. Black interior. Identical to my current car. Too bad it was $34,000 :(

Thanks to no accidents, no tickets, multi-car and homeowner's discount (and I've been with State Farm since 1985), my payment will actually go DOWN by $8 a month. Nice, huh?

Congrats on the upgrade........SIM Pics when you get time...

I the SIM without the rally stripes...easy care, 2 bkt wash and blow dry or high dollar micro and you will never notice a swirl...after a black camaro, you will feel like you have enough free time for a second job!
