All - I'm not a "muscle car" guy really. I'm a dad, 34, and I own a small business. I have a 12 year old brother, who was of course my hero growing up. When he left for the Navy, he bought a 1980 something Camaro, which I thought was the coolest car of all time. I've never liked fancy sedans, but I've always loved sport cars. When I saw the new Camaro, I KNEW I'd have to get one!

Yesterday, I picked up my brand new 2011 2SS. It is a Black/Black convertible. I LOVE convertibles and although I live in New England, I'm dying for the good weather to come back and enjoy this with the top down! It also had the RS package and the upgraded wheels. I'm also not a "rim guy", but these 20" wheels with the shinny new rims look AWESOME!

So, needless to say, I'm excited about the car! I haven't done anything to it yet, but I'm considering getting some chrome or stainless dash trim pieces. If anybody has suggestions/ideas along those lines, please let me know.

Pictures are coming... Promise! Here's the issue - I've been driving around because I'm excited, but I live in New England... we already had a couple of inches of snow, and today we are getting 12"!

The car is a bit dirty, so I don't want to post cruddy pics. I'll do a good two bucket wash on Monday or Tuesday, then pics are coming!

Love the site too. You guys are all great!

Congratulations. I'm in the same boat, 48 year old with high school kids. I have a 2012 on a truck to be delivered within a week or so. Never really been a muscle car guy myself, always drove trucks but like you...Don't think there is a better looking car on the road. Never too old to drive what you like!! My kids can't wait to get a hold of the keys themselves and I can't wait as parent to let them take a spin once in a while.

Got the car all cleaned up nice right now. Going to take some pictures tomorrow because I can't pull it out of the garage right now (raining).
