I FINALLY GOT TO DRIVE AN SS!
Alright so as some of you may know, I'm working on a feature article about the Camaro as a final project for one of my college classes. So today, I went to Balise Chevy in Springfield, MA and interviewed Mike Balise, the owner. After the interview was done, he let me take an SS out with a sales guy for a little spin...and boy did I love it.
It was an IOM 2SS (non RS) with the L99. I can't drive stick yet
It was actually a used one. They had just got it as a trade-in a couple hours before (only 500 miles on it). Apparently the guy who had it must be a collector because the dealer says he owns over 30 cars.
Anyways, since it was raining I couldn't really get on it, but the acceleration is good. However, I LOVE the ride and the handling. Took it around a couple sharp corners and I didn't expect it to be as responsive as it was. I can't wait to own one when I'm done w/college in 3 years. Here's a pic of me and the car in my driveway
P.S. My article will be appearing here in a little over a week!
