Drove it the 200 miles home. Longest road trip it's had so far in 15 months. Right now my post to mileage ratio = .75 posts per mile.

Sorry to learn about this issue with Black2L. Were you able to resolve this issue with your dealer? If not, I would like to get involved to assist you.

I took the longest way home. Had to listen to the "did you even test out a mustang?" dialogue from my guy.

I drove mine straight home (about a 10 min drive). I was shaking like a leaf, my heart was pounding, grinning from ear to ear and repeating to myself, WTF did I just do, this car is insane, what was I thinking???

After settling down a bit, I grabbed my guy and we went cruising over to my friends to show her off. They all laughed and called it my mid life crisis car...I'm ok with that.

Wink camaro

Took delivery of my camaro in the middle of winter January 25 lol. I picked it up Monday night and it started to snow on the way home but the dealer is only 27 miles east of me so it wasn't that bad.

You should tell them you wanted to, but there wasn't a junkyard close to your house.

Drove it home, parked it, went to work in my dads truck. That's the 2002. The 2010 came home, got washed and waited to get tags.

Went to Red Robbin... Starred at the car through the window and my key the whole entire time not believing I finally bought it. My family thought I was nuts the whole time we were there

Drive home was the best ride I've ever done.

Drove for about six hours through some nice country and a few challenging Hill Country roads. Top down.

Thank goodness for the slow pickup in front at one point, saved me a ticket.

I took an afternoon off work to drive 100 miles to the importers, and swap my old 2008 Mustang GT, for my Camaro. The drive back was great. Then I said to my wife, we were going to eat at McDonalds ( we don't usually eat that crap ), so that I could park up near the youths who gather in their pimped out Citroen Saxos, Vauxhall Corsas, and Scoobys. I was 48, and felt 18 again.

Was a very good day!!

Got it home and ordered anew exhaust & cold air intake. It needed to sound like a muscle car.

I got all the way home before I realized that I left my house keys and garage remote in my dad's SUV (he drove me to the dealership to pick up my car.) By the time I drove the 18 miles to his house, I was too tired to drive home, so I crashed at his place. Then I had to get up earlier than usual the next morning to drive home and get ready for work.

Drove it home, parked it in the back yard and told my brother I didn't get the car because the dealership didn't want to give me a good price on my old car... then waited for my brother to go outside and he came back in and said OMG you're such a Liar! I want to drive it!
Now my brother had just dislocated his ankle and had a boot on. so we walked out and he tossed the boot aside and I let him drive my new Camaro.
The funny thing is that my brother is an owner of a 94 GT Mustang and when we got back to the house he looked over at me and said "it sucks when your sister has more horsepower"

It was a good day!

I took the afternoon off work and headed to the dealership. I signed all the paperwork in about 15 mins, and then drove off the lot like a granny! This it the most expensive car I've bought new, and didn't want anything to happen to it!



Drove it home, parked it up outside the house and just took pictures of it, looked at it, sat in it, read the manual etc. Couldn't believe I'd done it! I think I sat in it every night in the garage when I got home for a week!



And almost 3 years later, here it is:

When I first got the keys I danced to the car. But forgot the dealership had clear windows, the guys who sold me the car looked at me like I was

Left the dealership after signing the paperwork with the "Free"/ most expensive pen I had ever bought in my life. Got on the freeway and asked everyone if they had their seat belts on and punched the throttle. Hit 110. Backed her down and enjoyed the ride home. Parked in the garage and sat in it for about two hours and called everyone in my contact's list using the blue tooth feature of course only after reading the manual and playing with all the buttons and gizmo's.
P.S. I still have that "Free" pen!
