New guy from Upstate, SC

Hey everyone! My wife and I just recently got a '13 ZL1 convertible. Traded an '07 Porsche Cayman on it. I've always been a Ford fan, but wanted a Porsche since I was a little kid, so that's how that car wound up in the garage. This is my first Chevy. Naturally, I was in awe when the '13 Shelby GT500 was released. However, my wife didn't want a manual transmission, so it was ruled out really quick. My wife test drove a ZL1 and called me after the drive. She said, "Don't laugh at me. I want one!" She said, "Don't laugh at me," because the day before when I joked about getting one, she was very adamant about telling me no. To here her so enthusiastic about such a powerful car brought a tear to my eye. So now I have a one seriously badass Chevy in the garage, and good gawd is that car fun! It's even more fun when I got to drive it with my 22-month old daughter in her car seat in the back. A muscle car with a car seat if funny and cool as hell to me.

Anyway, that's how I wound up joining the Camaro family, and I look forward to seeing any other of you guys on the road in the Greenville area. If you see a Crystal Red Tintcoat ZL1 convertible, wave as you pass by. It's likely either me or my wife driving. Most likely it'll be my wife, since I'm only home every other weekend due to working out of state. Chances are, she won't race you since our daughter will likely be in the car also.

Welcome aboard the Camaro train! It's a wild ride. Wait until the modding bug bites then it gets really fun. I don't get to the upstate much but hope too see you and that beautiful ZL1 some day at a car show or cruise - etc.

Welcome to the Camaro family! I think I might have seen your car parked at the Red Robin on Woodruff Rd a month or two ago. I remember really liking the color! Next time I'll look for the booster seat.

Nice story of how you got your car. I can also "blame" my wife for my Camaro, as we were sitting in our home office one Saturday morning on a nice sunny day and she said "Let's go do something fun like take a test drive." Guess what we ended up driving home that day. Hah hah!

See you around the area! Sweet ride!
