Hi Heather, glad to you could join us here at Shon's. Just a simple thread around a non-existant car. A thread so full of hope it can hardly be contained. The enthusiasm is seemingly endless. Yet beneath it all Shno suffers mightily under the simple weight of wanting................wanting even a nugget of knowledge or information or even remote wild speculation.

Of course since he moved to Bahrain, we never hear from him.

hello...thanks for the warm welcome! Hoping is a good thing...especially for something as great as a Z!

I am of little use now....I am at an SUV plant....no Zs here!!!!

How are you #3? Miss the Camaro roadtrips we had last year? Amazing the difference a year will make...

Hope the namesake is in a good place in Bahrain....we'll hold the fort down while he is gone

Driving it with someone who's been reviewing cars for 30+ years (it was his test model), he gave me his review/opinion and let me know the pros/cons of what I wanted to do to my car. After knowning some of this information, it truly put my wants into perspective.

I need to do some rethinking and make sure what I want is truly what I want now.

Overall reaction: I love the car and will own one sometime soon. Only weak point is backing up visibility. The sensors help but it would take a day or two of getting used to.
First, I admire the amount of thought you putting into your decision. Second, like Number 3 said below it doesn't take very long at all to learn the dimensions of the car. Once you get the the back three limo'd out it's even harder for a bit but really... it's an easy adjustment.

Although I do admit to having a fear of parallel parking for a little while, but I have that anyway. Not cuz I can't do it, just this fear that I'm holding people up.

I guess the consolation is that the awesome Camaro styling is what resulted in the big C-pillar.

But glad you enjoyed the ride.

I'd be interested in what you are rethinking and why

Heyyy...I see a new CTS wandered into your garage.

And since you're now at an SUV plant, how about some inside info about C3XX? Or was that canned?

Hi Cyn! I feel like I am drawn to these threads cuz I miss Michigan (and I am not even from MI!)

How are you? Enjoying your Camaro? Is it parked for the winter?

Hey Fen! Yeah, trading in the Saab for a CTS in the morning....I found a 6 speed CTS (2 available in the whole US!) We were transferred down here for a reason I suppose

Stay safe!

I know it is a strange feeling to return to the US after being away! Even if it was not for military reasons returning to the US is priceless!
