UPDATED W/PICS "SHARK" MAKES LANDFALL IN TORONTO

I am happy to announce that my Camaro has arrived and is happily resting at the dealership. The pre-PDI inspection, carried out by ME, has passed, and a more detailed one will follow, after it's cleaned, and when I pick it up. Since I was there only 1hr after it arrived, I managed to get all the necessary paperwork from inside the car (i.e. window sticker etc.) before they started going through it. I will give the dealer some points that they called me, so I could go through it before they began the PDI. Unfortunately I have to wait for the white rally stripes to arrive and be "dealer installed", therefore the "shark" will be in quarantine for a while . Photo's will follow upon completion of the car, so save your breath and DON'T TELL ME:





Ordered: March 14, 2009
BORN: JUNE 5, 2009
Arrived: June 24, 2009
PICKED IT UP AND BROUGHT IT HOME: JUNE 30, 2009

HERE ARE THE LONG AWAITED PICS OF THE 'SHARK' IN IT'S TRUE COLORS...SORRY FOR THE DELAY...ENJOY! (pics taken @ NASCAR SPEED PARK @ VAUGHAN MILLS)
Attached Images

Apparently I learned that only 2LT & 2SS trim levels get factory installed stripes, as far as white & cyber grey are concerned.

Sorry, I got you confused with someone else. If the dealer gets all the paper work in order, I will be picking it up on Saturday, and then they'll call me when the stripes arrive. This way I can enjoy the car, instead of it sitting at the dealer where every "tom, dick & harry" can get their hands on it.

That's a plan that's been in the works for months, and hope it comes together, we're all due.

I know exactly what you mean, I was only getting anxious after I found out it was built and waiting transport. Prior to that, it didn't bother me as much, and now that it's here, even without the stripes for now, I'm soooooo . I'll be estatic once I get the stripes. There was a 2SS with the same color combo that I ordered, right down to the stripes, parked next to mine, I joked with the salesman, get a ratchet, and we'll swap the hood and trunk lid

Just a little lesson in definition, "SQUALO" actually means shark in Italian, I had used it on my 1980 C3 vette that I had (C3's were known to have the shark body). I'm just glad that the Camaro has the same body lines to justify the name. I think you naming your car shark is quite fitting, go for it!

Congratulations Frank
Driving without stripes is ok for a bit. It just adds to the excitement a week latter.

You must of missed my post whereby I confirmed the official group name....'TEAM GTA" It has the motorsport theme to it, and it's expandable, instead of 3 Amigos.

Got it. Trent and I started a non GTA group called LEAFS SUCK. It's also expandable.

Well with the dealership's little screw up today by not having your car ready I guess our cruise will have to wait. But that's cool. You'd look out of place without stripes

Oh, and I just have to say this....

I figured, it's for the best that the car stay at the dealership, until the stripes are put on Tuesday. The weather is supposed to be lousy anyways, so better to stay at the dealer, instead of my garage. Not pleased that it's supposed to rain when I pick it up, but I will consider that God is christening my car for the drive home. I wouldn't put it passed you Scott to have to "say it"
