I'm glad to hear you got a ZL1, that is awesome! Congrats! Are you planning on modding it to the extent like you did with Kaylee?

So I talked to Becky, she still had a couple 2013 camaros let on her lot. One of them being a 2013 black 1LE with Nav and the NPP exhaust. Which - was basically perfect, except for being black. This got me thinking......could I swing ordering a 2014 and just doing a long term financing plan? Becky helped me crunch the numbers, and while it'll be very very tight - it's doable.

So without further ado - I have an order placed with Becky for a.....

.....2014.......

.....Ashen Gray Metallic......

......ZL1
Congrats !

And sorry for your old beautiful black camaro which burned

Make sure it's an ABC rated fire extinguisher - the wrong type of fire extinguisher can make the smallest fire into a much bigger problem.


Also............anyone ever get really excited about something? Your so pumped about whatever it is that you just keep going and going - eventually settling back down and giving your brian time to process what you just did?


Kind of where I am right now.

haha, well I know we've all done that. But that's not exactly what I was referring to.....

I keep a budget, and 99% of the time I'm honestly pretty good about it checking if something works with my budget before , well I wasn't so good about it when I was talking to Becky. Now that the adrenaline has kind of worn off, and I'm actually crunching the numbers instead of just telling myself they are going to work - I'm going to have to sit down with Becky and retool what I'm going to do.

In my defense - I'm not the first guy to not use his brain when thinking about cars.


Edit: and for those of you who are curious, yes it was the fire extinguisher that's causing me to be over budget.

Becky needs a Z/28 which means her ZL1 is available on your budget. Call and tell her I said so.

Haha I did the same thing, ordered the car right before I got married, my wife was egging me on, and in all the time it takes to be delivered I had a few mini-nervous breakdowns (im an accountant), thinking we couldnt afford it comfortably. And I never cancelled the order or anything, and it worked out. My wife's work picked up, I got a decent raise, etc. Never looked back.

We already went into savings mode since we bought the house and got married pretty close together, so we stayed on that track, not going out to eat often, etc.

I think you can make it work! Might have to settle for the suede ZL1 seats instead of Recaro but you can do it!

Yep...while I'd want a supercharged ZL1, I'd probably go for the 1LE myself. SO much potential to do even more stuff later on the down the line while still getting a hell of a car at DECENT monthly payments.
