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.

No, I believe it is a 2SS/2LT thing, my '11 SS has it too.

Thank you all for the kind words, I've come to enjoy this forum for the short time I've been a member.

Crystal Red is absolutely beautiful and would have been my choice had I ordered from the factory. In the end, I couldn't wrap myself around the '14 rear end and I went used instead. IOM was high on my list of colors, when I saw the interior, it was game over and I surrendered. The SS embroidery on the headrest is in red, as are the small emblems on the grille and rear.

I went for a nice, long drive last Thursday, the day after I bought it, and stopped in our small town for a burger. Clouds had been forming, but no big deal this time of year in this part of Arizona. After a nice visit and burger, it was time for the half hour drive home. But, the clouds had turned ugly and it wasn't a pleasant picture where I was driving to.

There was a significant amount of blowing dust across the road caused by the updraft and just before I entered a brown wall of rain/dirt. I made it home okay, (when I took the Cummins out later to run an errand, there were places I drove through with 4"-6" of mud plus standing water) but the previous day's detailing needs to be redone. But there's a silver lining in those clouds, a volunteer to help me wash the car if she can go for a ride.

Inde this September should be a great time to meet forum members and kick back and relax, I'm looking forward to it.

Also, I want to take more pictures of the SS at the Chiricahua National Monument with rhyolite <sp?> rock formations as a back drop, it should bring out the IOM.

Sweet car, I am sure you will enjoy the heck out of it! I am also glad to hear you missed the majority of that storm.
