Hello from WA

Hello everyone - old camaro owner, new forum member. In a nutshell I went a local Chevy dealer here in WA to look at a used C6Z back in 2018, but there on the lot was also this beautiful brand new 2018 black 1SS that had caught my eye. What was supposed to be a straightforward purchase quickly became a difficult decision - leave with the car that I came for or instead purchase the very impressive newer automobile?

I ended up buying them both.

Fast forward to 2021 and over the past three years the Camaro had really grown on me. I found myself favoring it over the Corvette (which was unexpected as the C6Z was a dream car for years prior its purchase). I liked the speed and agility of the vette but preferred the look/tech/ auto trans in the Camaro... so ended up trading the C6Z in last year for a new ZL1 1LE (yes, I now own two camaros) - my neighbors think I'm nuts lol.

Anyways, great to finally be part of the community here! A few pics below - purchase of the SS, trading the Z in for the ZL1(we had to purchase the ZL1 from out of state which is why we are at a private lot for pickup... just where the transport guy wanted us to meet up), and finally the two cars side by side.

Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5/6. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's, wives', husbands, girlfriends and boyfriends here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!
