Taking a test drive on Friday

Greetings,

Long time reader, first time poster. Been talking to a few dealers, living in Northern Ontario up in Canada and no dealer within 2 hrs.

So a dealer a few hours down the highway has gotten their first Camaro on the lot. A IOM 2LT. I will be heading there on Friday to drive it and see the Orange in person.

Hope to buy in Spring next year. (Ordering at end of the year.)

Cheers all.

Make sure you get on the highway so you can experience just how bad that blind spot is.

Well I took it for a test drive. IOM 2LT Auto. And I am 100% overwhelmed with everything. The car is just indescribable when driving it.
I went over it with a few other gentlemen and even showed the salesmen a few little things.(Thanks to this forum for all the incite).

Took it out on the highway as well as town streets, and was impressed, the handling was superb.

And to the "blind spot" I adjust my mirrors and was aware of them and made any adjustments I had to. Every vehicle has blind spots and when you know what they are you just adapt.

So as to my purchase. Have discussed with my salesman, with 14 weeks delivery (minimum) and the conditions of Northern Ontario, Canada being so unpredictable in fall-winter. I will be ordering a IOM 2SS/RS with 20" polished aluminum rims and rally stripes, auto for delivery in March/April of 2010.

Again thank you to everyone on this forum for all your knowledge, pictures and insight.

Cheers to all the 5th Gen Owners.
