1 week and I'm in love

Hey everyone! I bough my car last Saturday and it is by far the best car I've ever driven. I went from a '02 325i to a '12 focus hatchback to my '12 camaro ls.

This car handles so amazing. All the car have been stick since its the only way ill drive.

I have this nice sharp s curve going from one road to another. The BMW I could do about 55 and felt a real pull in my seat to the left where I could feel it losing grip. My focus I could maybe do 40 and I felt like I was going to flip it. Tonight I took the girlfriend out to dinner and her first drive and came up to the curve. I took this thing at about 70 and felt pushed back in my seat, and accelerated out of it. The girlfriend grabbed anything she could, getting a little nervous but my god is this car amazing. I felt so comfortable at that speed. I had the biggest smile on my face!

Thank you for letting me tell my story and I'm forever hooked on this car.

Just make yourself a favor , don't do that after dinner , or you may be cleaning the floorboards soon after that .
Or even worst , the old man can show up from no were .

I have surprised myself a few times with the cornering and braking.

Don't worry, after a few outings she will know how to react.
Though I always yell "Haung on!" It gives the wife a chance to set her knitting needles down.

Jbow89, CONGRATS on your ride and Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's, dad's, wive's, husband's, girlfriend's and boyfriend's here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!

Car is 2 almost 2 years new and 5k, Still awesome! SS is a beast / LS is really cool. Love the Camaro/SS/manual/vert! Wanted since I was 15, but took another 35 years to get one.
