Now I wait.

I placed my order today for a 2SS/RS IOM M6S. I've been trolling around the forum for weeks and just couldn't take it any more.

Now how do I break the news to my wife.

I had a great dealer experience, I've bought a blazer from this guy before and he's been great to work with.

All that's left to do is count the days.

Have no idea how your relationship is with your wife to even begin to answer this but I would just tell her.

Hey honey guess what, we are poor again!!!

Start by dropping hints about how much you want one and gauge her reaction from that and proceed accordingly. That's what I would do.

Tell her (one or all of the below):
You prayed to God for divine inspiration for an answer if you should buy it and he said "OK".
You just found out you have 6 months to live and this is your final wish.
Your friends on a Camaro forum said it was the right thing to do.
You have a sleep walking sickness and you did it all while you were asleep, too late now to cancel.
You promise to pick up your socks and put down the toilet seat forever.
Its better than having an affair.
You know that she secretly always wanted a Camaro and its really for her. "What? No! You really didn't want one? Ok I'll take it then"

LoL, thanks for the great advice. I ended up just slipping her the order sheet and smiling really big as I handed it too her. She was pretty excited about it actually. But was bummed when I told her it was a stick, she not very good with a Manual trany.

But she did say it would cost me a new set of wheels and tires for her Tahoe. She's been wanting to put 20s on it for a while. I can live with that.

Day 2 of my wait is in the books.

I'll be sure to pass on the advice some of you gave.

You kind of did it backwards. You start off bringing the word Camaro into some conversations, let some time pass, Show her some pictures, lstp, ask her if she wants to stop by a chevy dealer to check one out...... before you know it she is asking you when you are going to order one. Door open, walk through it.

I'd been dropping a few hints so it probably didn't surprise her to much.

Get her one! We looked at one on a Saturday the next day I left my husband a voicemail that I had put a deposit down and ordered one for me! Nothing like getting that message when you are walking off the paintball field with a bunch friends.
