Fortunately it went to a great guy that will appreciate and take care of the car like I did. I hated to see it go but I had to get rid of one of my toys and the '69 is never going anywhere.

I ordered my car in the August 2009 time frame. There was a 6 - 8 month waiting period for dealers to get their allocation and for the car to actually get built at that time. I think I was about 15 on the dealers wait list when I put down my $500 deposit.

I ordered a 2SS with polished wheels. That's it, no RS package for me. That's mostly because I wanted to make mine look very similar to a 1st Gen Camaro and in my opinion the Halogen headlights looked better than the blacked out housing of the RS. 1st Gen Camaros have been big in my family. I've had my convertible since I was 15. I got it about 4 months before turning 16 back in 1985. Now between my dad, my brother, and I our family currently has 7 of them.

Here are some pictures of the wife and I when we picked up the car in February of 2009 as well as some pictures of it in the garage on the first day it got home.
