New to the game.

Hi Guys,

I have been milling about for a little while now. A friend recommended me to this forum (JoeBlack) after we both tried to buy the same car from the same dealer without knowing each others plans or even the fact we were looking at such cars..

So I have taken the plunge and have bought a 2011 ss Rally Yellow (yes I will be doing the Bumble bee thing) and Im having it shipped. The car once here and converted should take about 8 weeks. In fact I was presently surprised how cheap the shipping actually was. Its just our wonderful government that makes it expensive, 15% customs then 20% VAT you have to love them.

http://www.killercarz2.com/2011-Chev...gPHiaV%5d9w%3d

Now the car does have some seriously high mileage which is my only concern but it is cheap and it is a car to be displayed more than driven (although I have a feeling I wont want to stop driving it) Also my brother is a mechanic for the AA so I have warned him to brush up on his american cars

Now something you should know about me, I am a huge movie geek (hence Bumbee bee) I in my spare time own, or should I say am Iron Man, I made a set of movie quality armour so I go around helping charities raise money etc.. I also made a set of Stromtrooper armour and various other Sci-Fi costumes.





So here is to a very long 8 weeks....

Bloody 'eck, James has an instant mate - not only makes the kit but wears it !

Anyway welcome. I wouldn't be too worried about that mileage, there's a lot of cc's that are sharing it.

Bit concerned about "it is a car to be displayed more than driven". Let's see after your first few weeks of ownership.

Welcome Rob ! Pleased you have finally joined up !

As Rick says I would not worry about the mileage.....it's only just bedded in lol !!

As for only displaying it I know this will change when you first drive it, the looks on kids faces and adults also gives you a buzz.....pretty much like when you are kitted up and troop at events so you know the kind of buzz you will get !

Would be pretty awesome to see you kitted up in Ironman driving bumblebee.... That would certainly cause a stir !

The master has found an apprentice! I think you're right. Our next Camaro meet will be one of those sci fi comic conventions I just know it! Lol

Don't envy your 8 week wait btw, but it'll be worth it! Especially when you see the tax disc

Funny you should mention that....

Im attending a big convention at the NEC in November where I am sure Jason (JoeBlack) will be showing off this Bumble bee there....
