Today is the day

Today, after 4 years of waiting, I finally get to go pick up my brand new 2011 1SS Camaro. Pictures to follow. The car went on hold for my house, then for my wedding, but now I finally get the car I've been dreaming about since the concept was first shown.

My only goal is to not stall it as I'm leaving the dealer. This will be my first manual car, and while I've been driving my wife's car quite a bit, her little Celica is not quite the same as a 426hp Camaro.

2011 Synergy Green Metallic 1SS Camaro:
RS Package, White Ralley Stripes, Premium Sound.
Mods; Flowmaster Exhaust, Vararam CAI, Pfadt Sport Suspension, Budnik "Ice" Wheels, Nitto Invo tires
Upcoming Mods; Custom grill and badging.

CONGRATS!!!! And good luck.

The clutch is a little tricky the first week or so...it grabs high and has a little "recoil" to it.
