Leather if its not included in the 2LT package.

Hoping the price is 25-26ish.
Yeah really at 17 I know I cant be trusted with that much power. Dad says I can't spend over 30, but I just cannot realistically see myself behind the wheel of that monster SS considering I rarely drive more than 2-3 miles over speed limit and prefer to accelerate slow to save gas (although I do enjoy a good burst of speed on occasion). That and I really like the RS package, which would put me over the limit on the SS. And the mileage is a bit too low for me. I'll probably get pretty much the same as you Shadow, except I will get Silver (still debating on stripes or not). I may add some little options here and there, but I would like to keep it as simple as possible so there is limited chance of stuff breaking.

I believe he is referring to the price of insurance due to their (ins. co.) lack of confidence in the fact that you will ONLY punch it when appropriate....

Apparently if I take drivers ed at my school, and I will, It will drasticly lower insurance rates for me.

Yeah I did that, and I get a discount for good grades, and I have never gotten a ticket or anything, and the insurance is still insane (thankfully I don't have to pay it yet, but still. So yes every little thing helps, but the initial rate is so extreme that nothing you can do can really soften it much:(

Hm. That doesn't sound right. Driver's Ed is required for the permit, which is a precursor to your license, I can't see something that is required lowering insurance rates, unless you have it confused with Defensive driving, which will lower insurance rates, if you are NOT taking it for a ticket.

Different state, could be true
Either way insurance WILL cost more for the V8, even for the 25+, which is when your (male) insurance should drop by +/- 40%...

Well my driver's ed. class gave me a discount that would take effect 6 months after I started driving and last for 6 months IF I did not get in any accidents or get any tickets. But this discount was minimal, taking off like $20 a month (for 6 months, so it was a pretty good deal but still nothing major). I forget the discount for having all A's, but it was even less than the other.

Could be a different state, hadn't thought of that. But yeah, the v8 insurance will be pretty hefty for pretty much everyone (that is a male) under 25 because apparently we are more likely to get in a wreck than all of those insane teenage girls driving around talking on their cell phones and putting makeup on at stoplights... on that one imo.. lol

Ah, in TX we have to drive with a permit for at least six months after completion of d ed before we are eligible for a liscence, if I remember correctly.

Yeah, 6 months at 16, 3 months at 17, and you can get your license right after drivers ed at 18.

In Ohio, you get your temporary at 15.5 years, license at 16 years with driver's ed OR license at 18 years WITHOUT driver's ed. A lot of people, including myself, are just going for 18. Driver's ed is a total waste of money IMO.

A loaded SS/RS LS3 manual, maybe without the sunroof if it sticks out of the car.

I want the best aftermarket exhaust and intake.

Color? White IF it comes out by June 09, otherwise I hope the Inferno Orange looks good, if not maybe Victory red. I like silver buy my last 3 cars b4 my current Black NIGHTMARE were all Alabaster Silver, so Silver is out. All the other colors are too dark for me.

I would consider stripes IF they are painted on. I don't want stickers.

For price, I won't pay more then $40k.

In 1996 when I got my license in Florida, I believe my family was on Allstate, and I definitely asked if Driver's Education offered by the school would lower my rates...and they definitely said yes.

Showing them a 3.8 GPA or better report card would also lower it, however I didn't even come close to that, ironically enough because I had all the freedom of my license and wasn't about to waste time with school...god I was such a dumbass, and now I'm a teacher. Karma bites me in the ass constantly as I get to teach versions of me all the time and

Be prepared for a shocker. Im 26 now. At 18 years old I drove a 1994 V6 Camaro. The insurance..... 300.00 per month. For a 3.4L V6!! Twice what my car payment was.

You are in for a world of hurt on insurace man. I'll be 27 with a clean record and even I'm slightly concerned what my rates will be...

I think you mean rich yellow gold

I am contemplating now getting my camaro re-painted with the Valspar Sunrise. A big thanks to Pinkcamaro as well for letting me know that the price would not be so high after all..

I agree, unless you have money being handed down by your parents, you shouldn't be able to afford a V8/SS Camaro's payments and insurance combined a month, even if living at home and have a part-time job while going to college (pre-college degree of course). Assuming you are paying for college as well.. If your parents are paying for college and living expenses and you have a good part-time job, you can afford to pay but you wouldn't be saving almost anything.. My advice would be to get a V6 Camaro which is no slouch, save the extra money on gas, insurance, and car payments because you will need it once you graduate and leave your parents house...
