Well guys, the time has come...

So I decided to trade in my 2010 Camaro 2SS/RS and my 2015 Mustang GT for a...2017 Camaro ZL1!!!! I always thought and said that I would keep my Nadia forever. But after driving her around, I can feel that she is getting a bit dated. The performance is there since she has less than 50K miles. But just all the tech out now, I wanted something newer. I thought about throwing a blower on her to make her more powerful. But ultimately, after thinking it over and looking at the ZL1, I concluded that it was best for me to let her go. I know someone else out there will enjoy her like I did. I am sad to see her go. But I am excited about the ZL1.

So here is the story. Wednesday morning I was just window shopping online like I do pretty often. I was looking at GT500s, Hellcats, GT350s, CTS-Vs, ZL1s, Z06s, Vipers...all the heavy hitters. Out of nowhere my friend who is a dealer texted me that they had a ZL1 coming in. He texted me because he sold one months ago without ever telling me they had one. So he wanted me to know so I wouldn't be mad at him. I went up there that night to talk to him about it. Initially I was gonna trade in all 3 of my vehicles. But I decided to trade in the GT and the SS and I'd keep my Jeep. So as I thought about it on Thursday I told him and the manager not to tell anyone about it because I just needed a day to let it all sink in. Friday morning I called him and put the app in and got the approval. I turned the GT in that night and will be turning the SS in as soon as the ZL1 arrives. The entire process took 48 hours, lol!!

So that is that. I will be staying around here with you guys because you all are my first Camaro family. I will post lots of pics once I get my new baby!! I cannot wait!!

Hey Chapel....Big Congrats....I know the feeling. I've had my ZL1 for a little over a month now. She is an amazing, dare I say "super-car".

Being up in Philly, good thing you held on to the Jeep with the winter weather you get up there. Looking forward to seeing your new Z...

Looking super Chapel....Especially all cleaned up after the rain. I still can't believe I got one myself too....The hardest part for me during the 1500 mile break-in period was keeping it under 80 . She just wants to go. The other things were easy to do with some self restraint. Have you come up with a name yet? Best of luck

LOL, uh, are we supposed to keep it under 80 mph for the first 1500 miles? Because if so, oops...haha!! Yea this thing just wants to move. It encourages bad behavior.

I'm still thinking of a name for her!!
