new member amazing vehicle

First and foremost let me say that after much deliberation, I have decided to purchase a brand new camaro ss and could'nt be happier with my decision.

I guess I would like to share and elaborate my experience with you guys. First of all I would describe myself as an avid auto enthusiast but for the most part have always held a higher regard for import vehicles. However, after comparing the market for performance auto's I determined the camaro was for me because of it's raw performance and drop dead gorgeous looks over that of it's closest competitors. After owning the car for a week or so and loving every second i had an epiphany, just one stab of the throttle was all that was necessary for me to realize what i have been depriving myself of as a lover of performance vehicles.

This may sound crazy but it's almost as if I feel more patriotic that such a car can exist for the average joe to enjoy. With every crack of the throttle I am in complete awe as to how lower powered imports were able to capture my attention over similarly priced domestic autos with more power ( have chevy engines always been this good?).

I can say without a doubt that this is by far the best looking affordable performance auto on the market. I would also like to add that I may have been oblivious to domestic cars in the past, but the emergence of desireable, attractive,and affordable vehicles into the marketplace from our American manufaturers will no doubt keep auto enthusiasts paying attention for years to come.

Way to go GM, I will be paying attention.

The f150 is a hell of a truck but I am a little bias as I have an '02 Duramax with just about 440,000 miles on it and I use it on a weekly basis

Ah I see. My brother has a Cummins and a PowerStroke.
Cummins= 22,000 Miles
Powerstroke= 521,000 miles
As you can see the Powerstroke is just a slight bit older!
