Thanks Phil. I still plan on going to car shows with my Mini. But I refuse to hang out with the ricer crowds. Hopefully my big brother V8 friends will still allow me to hang out in their sections. lol

Today they installed my clear bra which turned out great as usual. Dave Duncan (in the Orlando, FL) does awesome work.

Here's a quick pic of the install.

Oh get over yourself. You don't have to own a Camaro to be a member of the forum.

Oh, and by the way. You obviously don't like reading my posts so why do u bother to enter MY thread?

Unreal....

Seriously,
There is help for these issues....
Changing cars is a short term fix....I know.

...not true, I read you posts, never commented on them. Get your facts straight. BTW guys who sold their Camaro rides for the most part didn't hang around beyond that. Some other social media is a good place I imagine, just sayin'...this is a Camaro board...facts are facts...plain and simple. Dont get your feathers ruffled. Much thin skin there is around here...

What's your issue man? You seem to offer a lot of self serving comments lately. I'm fairly certain this is a public board.

Public board it is..I guess your are bravely chimming in from the back of the crowd with your own self serving comments. As you accuse me, what purpose do you serve....sheesh....it's not a one way street man. Thin skinned people....

Good luck with the Mini.

I think that you chose it because it has dual hood stripes like an SS.

Admittedly I do not own a zl1 yet but I do own 2011 Camaro. Plan to buy a 2015 ZL1. However, I would never get a mini or even a down sized 2016 Camaro/zl1 since I am not driving in something where my life is in the hands of other motorists, most of whom only care about themselves and will take my life to complete an email while driving.

If I see some huge SUV crossing over into my lane and coming head on to me and if there is no way to swerve out of the way then I am stepping on the gas on my zl1 and not going alone. Take that Twitterers..

I actually removed the hood stripes because I think the car looks better without them.

I have a perspective on this topic as i traded in my 2010 rally yellow 2LT RS for a used 2007 mini cooper S with 45K Km's. To be perfectly honest i wish i had never did it. My wife never asks for anything but she wanted a mini cooper so i made it happen. It hurt like hell giving up my Camaro but what stings more the car was so unreliable. I traded it in recently and got her a 2012 charger R/T. Don't miss the cooper for one second to be honest or the BMW culture that goes with it. I hope you have better luck then we did.

Best of luck with the Mini but sorry you felt you had to sell the ZL1.

You are not alone about the feelings you had regarding the ZL1. Our winter here has been bad as I'm sure you've heard with the stupid polar vortex (when compared to other ones where we got away with hardly any snow) like pretty much everywhere else in the country. Based on my monthly payment then adding in insurance, taxes, etc. I was feeling the same way as the car just sat in the garage.

Well no more for me. I am sick of saving the car for "the next guy". I'm driving mine everyday now and enjoying every one of my commutes. And because I got auto, traffic jams are no problem! Leaving work yesterday I did the remote start in the parking garage and the sound was absolutely priceless. As I told my wife the other day when she asked me how the drive in to work was on a Monday no less, I responded "I think it is the first time on a Monday morning commute that my grin was bigger than when going home on a Friday".

That's great, you've figured it out. The goal is to enjoy the car by driving it! You'll have more stories and adventures the more miles you put on it!
