Currently I drive a 2006 Chevy Impala SS as my summer daily driver. At 1st look, the timing looked great to buy the new SS for the summer car is posting over 120k miles. I also drive a Pontiac G8 GXP and track it at Watkins Glen during the summer.

I was all excited last fall and up to the Daytona launch to see what was being offered in the new SS than.......I started seeing that at the end of the day, I was buying another G8!

Now, if the car was offered with a manual and had more HP, I would reconsider. I also just heard from a local car dealer that each dealership will get three cars each and the minimum mark will be $5k over sticker (this sales manager said this number will be more like $7.5k).

So, I just ordered a 2013 Camaro 2SS with the 1LE track performance package for less then what the new SS will sell for.

So I'm out!!

Having a bloated sedan as a track car is completely stupid.
But, posting you don't wanna "buy another G8", then going and doing exactly that, is even worse. A Camaro IS a Pontiac G8!

You shoulda boght a REAL track car or at least a true coupe.
I can't believe you didn't just buy a Vette.

But, good luck with your 3,900lb "sports coupe". LOL

Good for you, I guess.

I would have still waited for actual pricing to be announced before spending all that money on a Camaro.

Don't listen to him - he is just angry with life.

Congrats on the new car. Too bad the SS didn't fit your expectations.

The SS really is just an upgraded G8. Our expectations are a bit too high for GM I guess. Ah well. At least we have another V8 option from GM now.

Any pic's of the Camaro :D

A mark up of $5 000 - 7 500 is crazy but since it's going to be limited production I guess some people will actually pay that mark up.

Probably best to shop around finding a dealership that doesn't add the stupid mark up

Hey TT C6...take a look at this video and see what a "Bloated Sedan" can do at the track!


Any more comments?

Nice driving.
Imagine how much faster you would have been in a C6 or C5 ZO6.

Since you already have a sedan, why didn't you go with a coupe for the track ???

In all seriousness, wait till next Wednesday for the NYC auto show to see pics and specs for the 2014 Camaro SS before you commit to anything.


I'll be in NYC for a few days with some colleagues to check it out for myself, you can stop by and we can duplicate that picture if you'd like.
But, I recommend you wear a girdle and shave the rest of that head.:D

6'3" will fit into a C6 fine.
I'm sure you've heard of Nick Yoskin, and he has no problem fitting in his C6s
He's twice your size and he'd break you in half.

Jerome Brown fit in his C4 Corvette.
Apparently, you are a lot better of a driver than he was.

Making light of a dead man, yep that's about your speed.

I happen to love JB and still have his jersey from 1990 hanging on my wall. :)
Shows how much you know.:rolleyes:
Good for you Robbie 2 shoes. I don't live with you (THANK GOD) so I wouldn't know what you wear with your dresses.

What F is this "Robbiie" and "2 shoes" $hit?

Come to the NYC show.
You can try out my boots.

Before that, while you still have your vision, you can see that EVERY car there has an independent rear suspension, unlike the pieces of $hit Ford fleeced you for. LOL

Robbie 2 Shoes you are just hilarious. You talk about everybody elses vehicles, but for some reason nobody has seen your Hot Wheels/Matchbox Vette. The forum is still waiting for that but no one is holding their breath (we're laughing AT you not with you). When you grow into those size 1 kiddie boots let us know. Meanwhile, head back to the basement of your mother's trailer and keep listening to Alicia Keys singing New York on your 8-track.

Well, some Pontiac dealers tried this with the G8 when it was first introduced in 2008 and supplies were tight. That didn't last too, too long. I picked up a leftover 2008 in October 2008 when sales slowed down. The dealer was begging me to take it and priced it accordingly. Yeah, the first ones will bring all the money, but it'll calm down.

I'm not part of generation X, Y, etc, so I have no interest in posting my personal pics and information online to validate myself or entertain others.

"Us" ?
"We" ?
You're on your own, dumba$$.


But, maybe I'll post some pics from NYC before it opens to the public.

As usual, you can't comprehend written language. You're part of generation S/G which is your prerogative Robbie 2. Off to the basement for you!
