It was short lived... hit a patch of gravel on a wet road last night and spun into a curb! I don't even have a f**kin' cool story to go with it... She's in the shop now to get an estimate done.

Driver's side rear wheel was almost busted off, rim was split, front was badly damaged... side airbag was deployed, rockers were scuffed...

Super impressed with On-star. I was barely stopped rolling when they chimed in. I'm good tho... a little concussed from the airbag, hearing is ringing and sore shoulder... but hey, could have been much, much worse right!!!

I don't think it was off... but I honestly don't know. All the dash lights were on when I stopped.

As for the power, I wasn't nailing it to make the corner. My first SS Camaro, but not my first vehicle with big power. I honestly can't say what or why... It just kicked out and BAM!

Thanks... My new SS is at the dealership and they took it in this morning to get it assessed and get the ball rolling with the repairs. I can honestly say that

Alberta Motor Products in Fort McMurray, AB

is likely THE best dealership experience I've ever had in my life! They jumped to receive my busted Camaro from the tow truck and make sure it was dealt with immediately!

Sorry to hear about your incident, PGlover. It really is a shame that happened so soon! I can only hope the estimate isn't outrageous, because it doesn't look too good with the back wheel. But if one good thing came out of this, it assured me that my decision to get AGM in a month or so when I get my camaro is the correct one. I live on a gravel road too, and that dirt would drive me CRAZY! I will likely be driving.... wait for it..... 10 mph down the gravel road. Man it hurts me to see your car in such a state. Hope all goes well for you. Keep us updated!

2LT to a 2SS??? I don't think it will be hard getting over the LT. LOL, especially once you get behind the wheel of a V8!!

Congrats!!

Congrats on your new ride

It looks awesome, love black and the whole car just looks fabulous. Best of luck with it. Now get off your butt and start the mods.LOL

I know what you mean about giving up the 2LT. I just did as well. My wife thinks I'm nuts when I tell her that I worry about the cars feelings.

Are we nuts or what?


She'll find a good home

Well its obvious your car doesn't like your rims. I'd say leave them off and I'm sure you'll notice your car loving you back.

Glad you weren't hurt in your incident and hope you don't run into any issues with fixing her back up.

quick update...

My car is back sitting on its new rims and rubber. All said and done, the damage totaled 14,000. I added some new fatter meats to the repairs so I only had to purchase 2 new shoes.

285/35ZR20 Supercar F1's on the front and 305/35ZR20's for the rear
