    My first LS1 Experience was given to me by a GM Engineer driving a 6spd Formula Mule car back in Aug `97 He laid the smack down on me in my `94 Formula. So in Jan `98 I ordered my LS1, Been nothing but fun ever since.

    01 Camaro 6speed

    This reminds me of my 2nd camaro i bought, i traded in my 95 Z28 Auto for a 01 SS M6. The sales guy asked me if i wanted to test drive it, i told him no i know how they drive. So i did the deal on my lunch break. I go to work and come back the next day to pick up the car on my lunch break. So i get the car off the lot and as soon as i hit the first light im stuck. I was probably at that light for 10-15 minutes were i finally had to call the sales person to come and teach me how to drive a manual car since i never learned how to drive one. He came and parked my trade in at the gas station on the corner got in my new SS as a passenger and taught me how to drive. So i learned how to drive in a few minutes was easier then i expected especially when your not in 3rd gear trying to take off from a stop or letting of the clutch way too fast and early, lol. I loved that car but it hated me in the worse way, oil consumption and lost oil pressure.

    '00 Firebird WS6 T/A

    took a ride in a 99 ws6 6 speed vert that a local cop had bought and modded with money from donors in and out of the force, had a bunch of lights and shit all over it. Very fast. I was in the back seat and I damn near shit myself about halfway through 1st gear. In '07 I got my own '00 A4 WS6 and it's now stalled with intake, exhaust and a tune - loads of fun pickin on all the local guys. havin to lay a bit low because the cops around here are all gunning for me. Hopefully going to san antonio for paint and body work in a big way here before too long. built a '98 v6 n2o car that ran a 13.8 and had a 12.8 in it (new mods, bigger shot) right before I totalled it. My present ws6 has run a 13.0 but that was before the stall

    I'm also knockin a few pounds off 'er so maybe 11's won't be out of reach forever. anyway, rode in my first ls1 when I was 16 and haven't fallen out of love yet.

    2000 Camaro SS

    when i was 15 i saved up and i wanted a 00 camaro soo badly , but i could never get enough money , and i needed a car to drive around , so i settled with a 89 240sx , after rebuilding that motor and getting as much out of it as i could without going forced induction . when i turned 17 i got a good job and spent a few months searching for a nice ss , finally found one 2 years ago. lets just say the only thing i regret is the gas mileage.

    I think my first experience in a LS1 was with a buddy of mine. He was looking for a Camaro to buy. We ended up test driving a Black 2000 Trans-Am with the Ram Air Hood. Being 17 at the time, we were like, Holy Shit!! Took it to a parking lot, got it sideways on the roads. Hell of a good time. I ended up getting an LS1 just because I didn't want a Damn Opti-spark. My buddy had a hell of a time with his 93 Z28 breaking down all the time.

    My first ride was in an LS2 GTO. Interior was nice and had nice ride. This car belonged to my Best Friend and we have always been in competition with everything we own (i.e. RC cars, 4 wheelers, automobiles etc.) Since he was a rather fortunate individual, mom and dad bought him everything so he always had the best....until. Got a good job makng bank and on came the arsenal. I found me a 1SZ M6 Z28 and gave word I was coming for him. Day of our encounter I arrived with a freshly installed LS6 intake and low and behold he went out and bought him a borla catback (guess somebody was trying to get the upperhand). Long story short my $11k 44K mile car beat his $35k GTO and you know what he had to say.........nothing.

    Yeah, I remember back in 2001 I had a 1990 Iroc-z 5.7 TPI which I thought was amazing. Well, my buddy had a 2001 WS6 6-Speed LS1 and let me drive it.......WOW!!! I couldn't believe the power it made in 3rd gear!!! My Iroc-Z never pulled like that..........When I got back in my Iroc-z and pressed on the gas, for the first time I thought "this pedal feels light"......at that moment I knew I had to have an LS1 with a 6speed.....Well back in early 2007 I finally purchased a LS1 6speed convertible (Red with tan rag top)....I've never looked back.......
