How soon till you get your 5thgen?
Honestly, after my drive at Carlisle, some of the excitement wore off. I've been looking for a particular 2002 Z28 (I always wanted to build a crazy 4th gen), but I haven't entirely wrote of the 5th gen. Part of what I didn't like about the GTO is still there in the Camaro - the softness (and it's just HUGE).
I am hoping to see what is in store for 2011, if anything. I really hope they get rid of the sharkfin. That is honestly my #1 problem with the vehicle at the moment. The "afterthought" placement of the reverse lights is a close 2nd. I'll drive some more and see more around before I order. I am also going to wait for the hype to die down a bit - I don't need to be first on the block.
Oh, and I am very torn between 1SS and 2SS. I really liked the cloth seats, but my dream car in HS was a loaded LS1 SS. Oh, how difficult...

I think that the LS3 after driving a LS2 feels a bit like driving a LT1 and then driving a LS1. You know the LS1 is faster, but the way the LT1 builds power just throws off your senses a bit.
My biggest praise is the way the rear wheels stay planted. I was SOOOO happy with the way the tires actually SPUN instead of the rear end hopping out of the back of the car when I launched it. I didn't do it easy, either. They let me launch it twice... shhhhh don't tell Scott!
