She's home! (finally)

I picked up B yesterday and she now has about 150 miles on her. It is one amazing ride but at the moment I still favor my 14 year old Trans Am Firehawk. I'll try to get a shot of them together tomorrow if I can. Even better would be all 4 cars (red firehawk, yellow camaro, blue Prius, orange subaru) but they won't fit side by side in the driveway! My wife is making me get rid of the Orange Subaru in the end, she does not like 4 cars in the driveway (been there before) so the Camaro will see winter with snows

Side note, I hate the new key, I constantly hit the fob with my knee when shifting. I'll disconnect the key from the remote ultimately. Larger better pics in the future!

Beautiful SS. Regarding winter snow, you may want to consider a really nice all season tire. Many of us have had good success with the General GMax. The Pzeros on your SS are summer only tires. They turn to stone at about 30 degrees. At 20 degrees they turn to glass.

As soon as it stops raining I'll get a pic of them together. The bad thing is at 165 miles the display is throwing all kinds of error's. Anti theft, check engine, ABS, power steering ect....

I'll go with dedicated snows, I'm not a big fan of All seasons.

Is it just me, or do I see a screaming chicken in the treads? Maybe the mention of "Firehawk" made me think of it, haha.

Clean Camaro, they're so much fun!

Here's the pair of cars. I managed to keep the Prius (garaged) and the Subaru out of the pic hence the odd angle.

PM if you want to know where to get a switchblade key cut from eBay. I had one made when mine was stolen and it cost less than $50.00.
