ROTFLMAO!!!! Gawd I wish! No, it'* a 2002 SS- looks similar to ZeeVert'* shown in this thread above. In fact, mine'* black as well. While it is in imaculate condition (just clicked over 5000 miles), I'd take a beating on it since it is a late model domestic. I know I'd make out better selling it outright, but I haven't even listed anywhere since I really have no intention of selling it. The Camaro is an incredibly fun car, extremely reliable (have seen many with over 100k miles running as strong as ever) and serves it purpose VERY well. We seldom drive it, only taking it out on the weekends and for joy-rides. I'm driving it now while I'm on travel and I have put more miles on it in the last 3 weeks than in the previous 3 years! One advantage of living in Hawai, but we recently moved back to the east coast- more asphault here.
We have another vehicle (Chevy Avalanche) that is my better half'* daily driver and I ride the Geezer Glide every day unless there'* ice. The move to trade/sell the Camaro is really more my wife'* idea, looking at the practicality of seating for 5 with 3 kids. My rub is with eliminating the SS which is, as stated nearly paid for.
I will admit, the GXP is the only car I have seriously considered to replace the SS with. Granted, they are apples and oranges but atleast it (the GXP) has performance and style. The one I've been eyeing is the white/gold tri-coat paint ant the taupe (sp?) interior. Dayum.....
Just for giggles (and self-inflicted torture) I drove by the stealership earlier today while they were closed just to see if it was in fact still there (1st time in 3 weeks). Shure enough, still there and looks as if it hasn't moved since I was there last- exact same spot and the brake rotars have a ton of rust on them now. I did notice something side-swiped the rear lower quarter on the bumper cover.... pretty good mark (about 10-12" long and couple inches wide) I'm guessing from one of their golf-carts based on how high the gash is
Should be able to buff out, but its in the plastic bumper cover and is a good sized mark..... They should atleast wash the damn thing! Starting to feel sorry for her and want to run to the rescue! Yea, I need help.....
but it'* a sharp car and shouldn't be neglected like that!
Who knows, maybe they are even more willing to deal?! If they would do something around $26k out-the-door, I'd drive it home and take my lumps from the Better half
Guess I'll head back Tuesday and see what they are willing to do now.
