Thumbs up Free rental upgrade!

So, while I wait for the dealership to get my new Pontiac G5 ready, I stopped by Enterprise Rent-A-Car to pick up my "Chevy Spark, Nissan Versa, or similar" dirt-cheap economy car. But, it must have been my lucky day, because I got a free upgrade to this…



If I remember the paperwork correctly, this is a 2013 Chevy Camaro SS, complete with the L99 V8 engine (400 horsepower), Chevy MyLink, remote start, and oh yeah, a powered roof. Automatic transmission and naturally-aspirated, but you can't get it all.

First impressions? Do I even need to bother?

If anyone wants to share their rental success stories, the Reply box is down below.

Just back in August, I reserved a Dodge Charger online at Enterprise for a day trip. When I went to go pick it up, they didn't have what I wanted and they bumped me up to a 2013 Chrysler Town and Country van. That spec'd out to a 300hp V6, flip down video screen, DVD, full auto sliding doors, auto rear hatch. That thing was cool.

Hey Colin, bring that car down so we can rip the engine out and stick a 3800 in it. They'll never notice
