New Member and Owner

Hi all,

I am one of the younger members (22) and I just bought my new manual SIM 1LT/RS Camaro today. I had to pick it up at a place about three hours from my current address. Had 12 miles on it when I left the lot, but put about 220 miles on it today in total.

I had a great experience at Friendly Chevrolet in Springfield, Illinois. If anyone is in the Chicago-land area I highly recommend them. See if you can get in touch with a Rob Blair. Easy to work with.

Was able to get the car down to $24,050 before taxes, title, etc. I had an out the door price of 26,180 (this is not including the $599 I purchased in rim and tire insurance). That brought the total cost of the car to 26,717.38.

Anyway, I have to shine up the car tomorrow. My front grill is a mess with all the bugs I killed on the highway. I have purchased Adam's Polish products and will put pictures up after I do a full detail.

ShoGunZek, Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's and wive's here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!

It's a stick... and yes, I was very happy with the final price of the car.

I detailed the car for about three and a half hours today (full wash, polish, wax, glass cleaning, and dressed the tires. Still have to dress the engine and the dashboard.

Anyway, I took pictures of the car today, but I lost the camera!
I will try to look for it in the morning, but I leave for a week and if I can't find it, I will be posting pictures when I get back.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I am happy to be an owner of this car.

Here they are! Sorry it took so long. Just found the camera today by my microfiber towels and Adam's polishes.

The one with me and the cheesy smile is a picture that I sent to a dealer who told me that I could not get a 1LT with the options I wanted for the price I was willing to pay. He told me if another dealer gave me that offer that I should go for it. I sent him the pictures saying I took his advice.
