Plus its nice to come home and just get in it and drive without having to clean it before i go to a cruise or show or just out for a drive and hey if the time comes and the offer is right then it will be worth that much more just because i didnt drive it everyday and mess it all up...dont get me wrong not saying you daily guys cars arent clean, im just sayin mine would be messed up if it was drivin every day cuz of my work. I get sh!t from everyone all the time because its not drivin everyday, its not like it only goes out once every 4 months i drive it weekly, just not every day to work or if its gonna storm real bad, i give props to you guys that drive em everyday and props to guys like myself and y2k whos cars spend life in a garage and could be flipped over and eaten off the bottom of them. to each is own
    I bought the 98 as a DD cuz I like driving these cars (LS1 engined 4th gens). I bought it because as I mod the 02 more and more and race it more often I don't have to worry about stuff breaking. Well, at least not as much as if I had to drive it to work the next day. I'm sure you know what I mean.

    z28 with the same wheels as me, didnt see what color interior but wtf, i was cool till i seen another som camaro with the same wheels as me, its different on here or anywere else online but in the same city at a car show?!? I know they are a totally different cars but for people not like us its just, "the same car"......bull, ive been freakin out ever since then thinking about painting it (twotone) or just selling it, its costing me so much to have it and its supposed to be so rare but there are at least 7 som's in ohio that i know about. I almost wanna sell it and buy a used one with a but load of miles on it thats paid off and just build a 408 or 427 ls1 and do the rearend and paint job with ccw's on that instead of spending the money to put a rearend and ccws on my already expensive "rare" 02 som. I dont know what to do? just finish paying mine off then do the rear end, heads, cam ,ccw's, or just sell it and buy a older higher mile one and have the money to do all that stuff now and still have the same or even better car in the end. Sorry for ranting im just a little stressed out if youve read this long then thanks for listening

    well for 02' they produced 71U Sunset Orange Metallic SS's- 41 - 3.2%
    that were 6speed.

    01 '71U Sunset Orange Metallic SS's - 234

    that means that there are 275 "SOM SS with 6 speeds ever produced out of
    7,523 SS ever produced in 01' 02. keep in mind SOM were only offered in these 2 years. that pretty fucken rare if you ask me. that fact that there are 7 SOM's in your area does suck,but still doesent take away from the rareness of the car.
    here in cali there are 3 real SOM SS's including me 2 have the CMe my car had it but previous owner sold it.,1 z28 with SS package(replica) and 2 other Z28's.
    I'm the only one I've seen with a 6speed tan interior. At all the meets everyone jocks my car dues to the rareness of the color.I love that shit.All the other SOM's meet up with me in my area at car meets and I honestly dont mind it because we are still one of the best rarest colors on the fbodies.

    thanks man, i knew about that, was just kinda pissed that there are so many of them in ohio, im over it though.... There is one other SS that has tan interior with a 6speed in it here, other than that yours is the only other one thats the same as mine ive seen, the other 2 som SS's runnin around have the black/charcoal interior

    I hate to really burst your bubble but the new camaro will have more hp and the z28 is likely to push 650 horsies. This means your ss is reduced to racing the new v6, and it's going to be a pretty even fight without mods. On a lighter note it's just a color. If you want to be unique just add a vinyl.

    You only suggested that he'd drive it off a cliff because they are plentiful. I know his SOM (whatever that means) is supposed to be rare, but my two cents on the matter... it's rare because it's dull. I'd prefer a brighter red.
