Did it

Came across a 2010 2SS RS in Inferno Orange that only had 8700 miles on the odometer and brought her home. With a 6-speed manual on the Cummins pickup, I can live with the L99 setup nicely.

A few spontaneous iPhone pics. I didn't notice the lack of bowtie emblems until I took this pic;



IIRC, the SS emblem is 69ish.

Nice interior, I was very surprised at the relative coolness inside under the 104°F Arizona sun;



I was also surprised by the number of cars that come alongside, and then "show" their stuff. Anyway, the previous owner must have liked SS emblems, here's another one along with Foose wheels;



Very enjoyable ride, behind the wheel @75mph (I-10) feels slow, even for a senior.

This. Never knew having a Camaro would bring out other drivers' aggression... Also the attention it gets... mann... yours is a shiny red which i'm sure is going to make some heads turn.. Congrats again!!

Nice. As Previously stated, it looks more like VR. Personally I think the flat black rally stripes compliment VR far more than it does the IOM. Love the Interior Trim.

Thanks all, it's a great ride and the IOM seems to change color and look red as the sun sets. Shaded side looks red during a walk around and then transitions to orange on the bright side, still getting used to it. The top of the IOM door inserts are lit, narrow band of light along the top edge, my understanding is this is a '10 only feature.

I go back to the days of classic muscle cars and we had fun riding each other's rides, Chevelles, Corvettes, R/Ts, GTOs and Mustangs to mention a few. I had a Hemi rr, great car but high tuning maintenance, Chevy has done a great job of putting together the gen 5 Camaro and I expect it'll spank most of the classic muscle and use boocoo less fuel doing it IMHO.
