Maybe they were trying out for the secret service. GM is laying off a bunch of workers, and the government is the only employer hiring. They're just practicing being covert, cool, and making get aways.

I don't know who they were -- but I will say this: Everyone at GM has been warned (and rightfully so...) about the dangers of street racing -- even a lil harmless "floor it at a stoplight with another performance car next to you..."

It's the quickest way to lose Company vehicle driving privileges.......

I've had several people try to 'egg' me on -- and after a while, you just learn to ignore it.........

I can promise you that street racing wasnt factored into this at all.



However, i have an update on the situation...

UPDATE

UPDATE

So i had spent the entire day at the beach (telling everyone i knew about my Camaro encounter) when i get a call from a buddy of mine

"hey man, i just saw that Camaro you told me about driving down 3rd!!"

(i was on the beach off 2nd, a block away)

So immediately, i jump into action and hurry off the beach to see if i can spot the Car driving by.

I finally reached the beginings of the parking lot, when i see something amazing. Not only do i see the red Camaro, but its pulling into the beach parking lot off 2nd right infront of me.

Big guy in the Camaro parks it at a toll meter a few feet in front of me and i go in to talk to him... common it was too much of a coincidence.

"Hey, nice car man, how did you get so lucky they let you take it all the way to Florida???"

The guy starts beeming, big smile on his face...

"Yea this car is a dream, idk how i got so lucky but im glad i did"

I ended up talking to this guy for a good 20-30 minutes about the car, seriously the guy was almost as excited about it as I was. In that 20-30 minutes my friend who had originally called had showed up to look at it, and i called my dad who lives down the street to come on down and take a look.

I learned that he was from the millford proving grounds and he had the car down in Florida testing how the heat/humidity effected the car. He looked like he was enjoying his assingment in his muscle shirt.

So just randomly, he shocked me with a...


"Hey, why dont you hop in the car?"

Im floored.... and wet/sandy from the beach so i graciously decline.

"Sorry, im all wet, but id love to"

This guy who I later decided was one of the nicest car people ive ever met, insisted i get in the car. Which, i ended up deciding i had to do.

Wow. Everything on the car was so nice. It looked like it was in a different class completely than the Mustang. The car had the 4-pack which was really neat in person, and the leather quality felt top notch. Everything was layed out perfectly, it was really amazing in person. I came away from it feeling that it was much more like a sports car than a muscle car.

So finally my Dad shows up, and he got all excited over the car, asking the guy about 15 times why GM hadn't put the car on the market sooner. My dad drives a 120K+ German Sports Car, but he was floored with how good of a job they did with the Camaro and how they priced it.

I have no idea what had gotten into the driver of this car the day before, but the guy i talked to today was great. I wanted to clear this up, It must have been a friend of his that he let drive who didnt want to get caught in a picture driving a car he wasnt allowed to be in on the internet.

Amazing Car
