    On your ass flashing
    my highbeams

    first impression was I coundnt see beyond the fuckin dash board, and i'm 6'1'', then I punched it on the freeway and decided to overlook it, along with the annoying ticking sound, that speed gets to my wallet every time

    Took it for a good pull with my mom down the highway. As soon as I stepped into it I just looked over and said nonchalantly "I'm takin this home today."

    and also, referring to the buick, the windshield is almost straight up, the camaro's is almost flat. that def freaked me out, along with not being able to look over my shoulder when switching lanes as well. the buick had an almost 360 degree field of view.

    but then again, in the camaro i dont need to look because people wont be beside me on the highway

    First time in in a late model f-body was the day i bought my 99SS. I loved it just as I knew I would. Best handling quickest car i have ever drove. Now in my mid forties i can afford some of the things I have wanted all my life. Now to start making it faster and cooler looking.

    2001 Camaro SS

    Man i worked for mine for a few years, my parents got me a black on black v6 and always said they didn't want me in the v8. me and my buddy drove the v6 up to get the ss (black on black lol) and took turns switchin off on the way home.... it was rediculous... scared the hell out of me when i first nailed it and everything blurred haha, i was used to the 200 horses and loose suspension of my old v6.
    of course we ended up at a stoplight together and i physically saw the difference... that was insane too.

    My girlfriend doesnt know cars at all. and i mean at all.

    I dont think she could name a single mechanical component if she had too.

    But anyway, she drives a 87 long bed chevy, so my camaro is a little different to ride in, ive offered to let her drive it around the neighborhood, or the parking lot at work but shes scared of it. Hell its just a 3.8 but whatever.

    And anytime my car gets referred to in public, the only thing she has to say about it is..."its pretty", she knows that infuriates me.

    My first impression was "WOW". It was 1999 and I set out to by my first newer car. I was a Ford Mustang addict at the time. I had my eyes on this loaded Black '95 GT in the Auto Mart. To my dissapointment when I got there, they had sold the car that morning. I told them nevermind and I was going to go look somewhere else, but the salesman insisted I just atleast try test driving this Bright Red 1994 Z28 6-speed with 80k miles. After my first test drive I was now a converted GM fanatic. Bought the car that day for $12,000 financed and never looked back.

    I bought my car without even test driving it. I was scared shitless of it at first. I let my dad drive it first since he hasnt driven one since he wrecked his. He was about 1/8 mile in front of me and got down on it and I heard it over the radio and the windows up. I was scared to death and right off the bat the bastard chrips second. It took a couple of hours to get used to not driving a truck but that night I took it up to 140 and got out of the car and couldnt walk. I wish I could have that feeling again. I guess I need a 408
