Angrybird's 1 year anniversary report

One year ago We were on our trip to Rodgers Chevrolet in Woodhaven, Mi in our 2010 Bumblebee and trade it for our new 2012 Convertible, AngryBird.

This year has seen many changes in AngryBird from the day we picked it up until what it looks like today.
Through it all and the 13,000 miles we have put on the car (most of which have been driving with the top down) I can say this has been one of the most trouble free cars in the first year of ownership that I have had. The only issues were very minor ones, the rubber strip on the passengers side of the top came dislodged. It was fixed with one trip to the dealership that only took 30 minutes, the air box had a broken tab that they replaced and the dash bubbling that disappeared over the winter and has not returned.
We have experienced numerous heavy rains, high winds, snow and ice while either driving or parked in my driveway. Not one drip or leak in the top or water bag so far.
The car is running and performing as I expect. I did add a RX Catch Can, and Ported throttle body and the MRT V2 exhaust.
My opinion of this car on a scale of 1-10 is a 9.95. It does everything I want and it is a beautiful car and never fails to get compliments everywhere I take it.

Thanks again to Becky Doyle for going the extra mile for us before, during and after the sale of our car.
We are looking forward to our next year together.
Here is a picture of Angrybird and Bumblebee together the day we picked it up.

I dont think any car can be a 10, there is always room for improvement.

My cosmetic mods are, the Angrybirds emblems, the reversed hockey stripes, blacked out rear panel, ZL1 Grille, Emblempros 1LT emblems on the grille, trunk, and dashboard, Emblempros 323 HP emblems on the Cowl, ACS's TL1 ZL1 style hood insert, Emblempros Red door kick panel inserts, GM Quarter Flares, Emblempros stainless gill trim, and Huskey floor liners.
I think that's all....

That cut our vacation short when we were west two weeks ago. It was blinding. The weather person termed it torrential. Took the fun out.

I hope there are no problems with your home.

I know about torrential rains, back in 2009 my wife and I drove our Sky down to Daytona Beach, it started raining right after we got there and continued to rain for 4 days, they got 30" of rain in 4 days, we had to stay an extra day because the water was too high to drive through every way out of town. Even the retaining wall at the hotel next door collapsed one night.

Thanks, one if the reasons I wanted the 1LT non RS was because I like the wheel design better than the others. I have never been an real aftermarket wheel person either.

Bird you did a fantastic job on that car. My favorite part being the hood. I've always liked the V6's as well. I think of all the modern muscle cars out there Chevy did the best job on the V6 lineup.

On a side note: A few of us at Chicago5thGen are talking about a cruise to the Dragon. If we actually end up going, and there will be a lot of us, I'll send you a PM and hopefully you can join in. It would be really cool to have a local there to give us some pointers on that road.
