New Camaro 1LE W/ Crazy Story

Hello everybody, I am the proud new owner of a 2013 Camaro 1LE 2SS/RS. I would like to thank everyone on this forum for all the help that they have provided me in finding this Camaro and want you all to know that it is much appreciated! Anyways, I picked her up yesterday (well sorta) and I thought I might share my experience with you guys. The day started off great, I woke up at 4:30am and I went down with my dad to go check her out. We made pretty good time on the way down there and were greeted by a salesman with the keys in his hand waiting for us. We had told him the day prior that we were coming to take a look but he figured we were pretty serious since we drove over 4 hours just to go see it. He threw the keys at my dad and told him to take it for a spin. I ended up purchasing it and anxiously waited to drive her off the lot. This car is my dream car and now my pride and joy. I have saved up for this car since I was 14 years old and can proudly say I paid for it 100% on my own. Anyways, this was my first time ever driving stick shift or a high power car and I am a fairly new driver so I was very nervous. On the way home it began pouring rain and I was driving with white knuckles I was so nervous. Every so often the car would fishtail out to the side and begin hydroplaning because of the Goodyear tires it has with such little tread. I made it within 20 miles of my home and I heard on the radio that there was a winter storm advisory issued and they were expecting up to 7 inches of snow overnight. At this point, I can hardly even get the car to move forward and it was very uncontrollable. I drove past at least 5 other people that either slid into the freeway wall or were in the ditch on the other side. I limped it off the freeway and made it to a safe parking lot where I had to leave her for the night. I was so sad that I had to leave my one day old dream car in some parking lot covered in snow but there was no way I would have been able to make it the 5 more miles that I had to go to get home without crashing her. I am going later today to take her home officially once the roads clear up and cannot wait! Thought you guys might enjoy this story as it was definitely a very memorable day! Here are some pics of right after I picked her up and also where I had to leave her for the night.

Good decision, better to be safe than sorry. Especially on the first drive home.

Congrats I the car - I always have respect for when someone has enough common sense to stop when the conditions are not right. I know a lot of people that would have put it I. A ditch trying to get it back home

Congrats and I feel your pain. Ohio weather sucks.
Everything I say is to be taken as an opinion and not fact so don't get upset over words that spill out of my head.
