Closing the deal on my 2012 Bumblebee Thursday

My wife and I are excited. I have a dealer going to flatbed a bumblebee in (300+ miles) for Thursday. I'm trading in my Diesel Excursion and putting $10,000 down. Hurst shifter, body color engine covers, quarter flares, Transformers package.

OK, I see. Around here, we call those mud flaps. Are there any other dealer installed accessories that I should be requesting? This car is not being purchased as a daily driver, it will be a garage queen that will see under 5000 miles a year. I drive a Corolla daily and have 3 dual sport motorcycles that I ride most of the non salty time of year. I don't want to be missing any "must have" add on items.

That's what we call them around here too...lol. I don't care for them and they really take away from the flowing lines on the Camaro. But they are an inexpensive alternative to the GM ground effects for protecting the lower body panels from rock chips.

Envy,

Do you happen have pics of the GM ground effects that you speak of? Wonder if they would work well with the transformer theme?

I got it from Ellwood City, Pa. McElwain Chevy/GNC/Cadillac.

I actually tried to buy from North Star Chevy, near the Pittsburgh airport, but that was not so good.

The car will need warranty paint assistance because the rear high spoiler was not so properly painted, underneath you see black primer showing through the scorch yellow.


Before e left the dealership, my wife had to test fit herself to the car. She likes it.


Drove the new baby home on wet roads and put her in one of the garage bays. This is where it will spend a great deal of time I suspect.






The word "Transformer" in Autobot language.


"Hey you..... Nice view from behind!"
