T_MECO's CGM ROCKET

I figure I'd finally woke up to the fact that I need to document this fine auto in some way. so here goes:

After my wife finally getting fed up with me drooling over ths car for 2 months - she finally said to just order it already - but get the Gray one.

So I ordered it on June 13, 2009 from Norman Frede Chevrolet. $500 deposit and I had goose bumps. I sat in que for a couple weeks until I got an email saying it had been accepted

1100, Preliminary order.......................6/25/09
2000, Order accepted by GM...............8/10/09
3000, Order accepted by production.....8/11/09
3300, Order scheduled for production....8/20/09
3400, Order broadcast........................8/25/09
3800, VIN is assigned..........................9/1/09 A9142692
4000, Available to ship........................?
4200, Shipped...................................?
4300, Intermediate Delivery.................?
4B00, Bayed.....................................?
5000, Delivered to the dealer...............9/16/09

I call the dealership because I had not heard anything about the car since the VIN was announced and it so happened that it was just being unloaded off the truck. I was totally useless at work that day. But I brought her home that evening.

Had the dealership take care of the gurgling noise under the passenger side dash. The GM bulletin for it if anyone needs it is #09-01-37-001 - Installs a heater restrictor

The only gurgling sound from my passenger side is my passenger after I show them what 4th gear @ 5500 is like...

Just installed the 4 pack gauges yesterday. Guess I'll have to find a new place for my sunglasses. Super easy to install and best of all it's plug and play. No programming from dealership

No - just some reflection from the camera flash - although that would look slick if it were permanent

Black out Trunk

I bought this off of ebay. It's a blackout mat that is made of magnetic material. So if I get tired of it I can just peel it off.

Painted my Engine cover

Bought a used one and painted it. Started by shaving off the CHEVROLET lettering and base coating it with CGM. Then I airbrushed some ghost letters that say CAMARO SS on one side and LS3 6.2L on the other.

OLD vs NEW

Trip to Florida to see shuttle launch

My dad and I took a good long trip to Kennedy space Center to watch STS 131 launch. Made it in 15 hours. Passed some major milestones.
