AK is official!

Hey look, somebody added us to the Northwest!! This is as exciting as statehood! Sorry fellas, I won't be coming back through the same way; we're looping up through northern MT/ID and across on 20 later in the month. I'll keep an eye out for Camaros; you shouldn't miss mine, IOM, black stripes, Heritage grille and Alaska plates...probably driving either too fast or too slow and playing 60's/70's rock & roll with the sunroof open no matter what the temperature. Solo going south and bride (of 37 years now!) going north and back west.

Appreciate it, I got all the ideas for cosmetic 'improvements' from this forum and with everybody else figuring out how to do things, it made installation really easy. I worked at AK Sales & Service in Anchorage for many years before we moved to Juneau so I got to check out everything GM had and I haven't been excited about a car like this Camaro since we got our first Grand National in stock back in the 80's. I even had a GMC Syclone for a demo once, but this car beats 'em all with style!

Hi everyone, I'm about to move to Alaska. I should show up around the end of August. What's the weather like as far as the ability to drive? What kinds of things should I look for or be worried about? How bad do the roads get? I have a 2SS, and am moving to Anchorage.

03.. it is usually around 70-80 in Anchorage. Kind of dusty, unless the city really works hard on keeping streets cleans. Are you driving or shipping it up?? I highly recommend getting a clear bra if you can put on it before you leave. Rocks are the worst up here right now. Be nice to have another SSer here.

I suppose I could have driven it up from Washington. Oh well... I'm going to spend a few days in Vegas, and it will be here waiting for me when I get back. I looked at a few dealerships here locally, but the dealer markup was ridiculous, and they weren't moving. I'm coming out thousands cheaper this way...

Either way, I'm SSuper excited!!!

What works for me is click reply or Quote then scroll down past the text box and you will see a box that says "attach Files" and then click the box that says "manage Attachments" then click on Browse then upload, then go to the file on your computer that the photo is located and (like desk top) then add that photo and tell it to load that file.

I just figured that out the other day, see how it works for ya

How yha like the car, still got the grin from ear to ear ?

Tires?

Sled: What tires are you running for winter? I didn't drive mine when the roads were icy 'cause the Pirellis don't work in the snow/ice...at all.

I agree with you, the Pirellis are not a good tire for ice and snow. I think running slicks would have the same amount of tractions as they do. I ended up putting Blizzak LM-60's on mine. Not sure of the size right now, but I delt with tire rack and had to order them. The front and back tires are the same size. The guy at tire rack told me that the stock rear tires are one inch wider and only a fraction taller than the stock fronts. He says that there will be no differance in the speedo reading. I took his word for it and it's all good to go. I'm happy with them. I think Pirelli or someone else makes an "ice worm" maybe thats said to be a little better than the Blizzak but no body had um in stock when I needed winter tires. So look into that, you got lots of time. I found tirerack.com is an outstanding place to do tire shopping. I paid about $1,200 for the tires and shipping.
