Finally drove an SS

For a couple of blocks, but I still liked It

It was a Yellow LS3 w/black stripes on the hood and decklid. Colorado car. I'm working part time as a local valet. Love the feel of the interior, does the piping on the door panels light up or was that the reflection from the dash lighting? Looked cool either way

they light up...love the way it looks at night. The interior has really grown on me. I always thought the interior wasn't great...until I got my car. No problems with it at all now.

Yeah, I can see who that faux looking plastic dash would have to grow on you. I like how the seat/shifter felt. I'm not a fan of the high belt line (top of door) like I see Camaro and Challenger, but I could get used to that.

Regarding visibility issues I keep reading about, our the side mirrors and rear glass didn't seem much different than a Corvette, fine for me. The a pillar (sides of the windshield) did seem pretty big, something else I'm sure you adjust to quickly.

I do wish the trim around the gauges in the dash was actual shiny metal, not silver-colored plastic, like the kind you find on Fisher-Price trucks.

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