Test drove a 2RS/SS today.

I bought a 09 silverado quad cab on Saturday and went back today to drop off the check. While I was there, they had 2 camaros delivered. One was the Bumble Bee version and the other was a 2 RS/SS. The Bumble bee was already sold on a special order, but the second was not. I told my salesman I wanted to test drive the car. So off for the keys he went. All I can say is: WOW!!!!! I had that thing up to 110MPH in a heartbeat. I was supprised how sensative the gas pedal was, it took some getting used to. I loved how the interior was laid out and was supprised at the size of the trunk. I am 6'4" and I barely fit into the car. No room for back seat passengers, but who cares right?! The car hugged the road, even while taking an on ramp at 80 mph. I told my salesman I would be picking up the Z-28 when it comes out, but if it is scratched from production, I would be getting a 2 RS/SS. I hope they make the Z-28!!!!!!! I will post photos of the car later.

Must be a pretty cool salesman to let you take it 80 mph around a ramp and up to 110!

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.

yea i'm 6'0" and when i first got in i hit my head on the ceiling and thought, "i just spent $43k on a car i don't even fit in, GREAT!"

Well then i found out the electronic seat controls lower the seat and now i fit perfectly.

80 mph in this car just does not feel like 80 mph.



Hell, I've got a lil' home movie of me hitting 120, and it doesn't even start to drown out the stereo.

You gotta see Jack.

I spent about 20mins talking to the salesman, gave him my DL, (I'm sure they did a quick CC) he brought out the key (opened it for me) and said something like see ya in a little bit or something like that. They only had a victory red 2LT automatic. But it was some kinda fun, I'll tell you. I really enjoyed driving it. When I arrived back at the dealer. I had a grin ear to ear... I proceeded to order an 2SS RJT 6sd man. 20" Alum. Perilli's. **** shes sweet...

I wonder why they released the ground effects in only one color? The only reason I didn't get it.
