Too bad it wasn't a yellow convertible, manual trans, with suede package, NAV and 5 spokes...then we'd probably have to talk.

Not sure if I will get those or not, have to wait and see on that.

Once I get the VIN for the car I'm sure that's when the "negotiating" will begin for everything.
I was thinking of negotiating for the Camaro car cover, it looks nice and goes for $400+. I probably won't drive it much in winter. There's a lot of pictures of HWSE cars on lots at US dealers, check autotrader .com. Why did you go with the Hot Wheels car and not a normal SS?

Stay away from that car cover. If you are wanting a quality cover, that is water proof, water beads right off, please look at www.calcarcover.com and choose the Superweave material. I have, well, let's say oer 20 of these covers, and am very pleased with them. When I purchased my first 5th gen, I ordered the cover as well and was NOT happy with it at all. I will sell it to you, if you would like for half what you will pay for a new one.

If you are going to put money into a new cover for your car, GO with the Cal Car Cover and get the Superweave material. I had one custom made for our HW car. It's blue on top, black on sides, separated by a silver piping with custom embroidery

Congrats on your car!

I went with the HWSE because it is a rare car and wanted something different then everyone else. I was looking at the ZL1, but with dealers putting almost a $15K markup on it that turned me off of that. Plus with the ZL1 the dealer here in Fort Mac is not able to actually work on it so if I need any work done on it I have to take it to Edmonton which is 4 hours south of here.

Thanks for the info but my car will be indoors with the cover on it. That custom cover sounds real good. Did Cal Car Covers do that for you?

Sherwood Chev. in Saskatoon told me they never charge over retail, maybe your next car can be a ZL1 from there. When I started shopping for a Camaro I was thinking a 2LT, then saw the color and how rare the HWSE are I had to have one. I think it's very close to my 1979 Z28 in bright blue metallic. I'll try to upload a photo later, have to go move more snow.

LOL Damn snow won't go away! I know that all too well. But the weather here is FINALLY going to start warming up, so here is hoping for a quick melt!

Thank you. I bought it new for a little over $9000. It has about 35,000 km. on it. Never winter driven. My favorite option was the aluminum wheels for about $300. It also has a factory 8 trach LOL. I originally ordered it in white with blue stripes but changed to this color.

Here's a funny story. I actually had deposits on two 2013 HWSE Camaros for about a week. The first was on Edmonton kijiji. I found out it was from a dealer in Wetaskiwin. They were asking above MSRP, but I thought for such a rare car it was worth it. Then I called Sherwood in Saskatoon. They were asking MSRP and were closer to me, so I backed out of the other deal. Did you have to pay over MSRP?
Congrats on your HWE purchase man! I'm in Winnipeg and also ordered the auto in the Coupe, TPW is this week! Very exciting!!

Yes

You can go to the website and do it all online. Their customer service is also unbelievable as well, so if you would rather call, it would be a good experience

Does anyone know if they are getting or have the body colored (blue) engine covers for their HWSE? I haven't seen any pictures of one with them yet.

The body colored engine cover is on our build sheet (it's a $0.00 option). But, I have yet to see any pictures with them installed. Not sure where that's going. Our car should be delivered within the next week or so. We'll certainly be checking for that.

Yes it's a premium painted black car cover on the V-8. A few of my club member friends went to look at one locally here and told me its a painted black one. Not sure why they didn't paint it the body color.

You're right it's a $0.00 option included when you build the car online. It says it's a dealer installed option thats shipped seperately. I've seen pictures with black ones which look good but would kinetic blue be better? Maybe others that have taken delivery of theirs can help us.
