One nice thing about being in Arizona is that it's actually cool to drive a Chevrolet here. Further, people still get excited when they see a Camaro here, and several told me what a beautiful car I had.

While we were dining at Haus Murphy's (order the Paprika Schnitzel with potato pancakes as an appetizer) in Glendale, AZ (convenient if you've just come from a Padres' or Mariners' game in Peoria, AZ), we got the sincerest compliment of all. This blue 2010 Camaro 2LT with the optional RS package and six-speed automatic transmission sidled up to our 2SS long-termer.

You'll notice our Camaro friend pulled up farther than we did in his parking spot. Soon enough, he'll (or she'll) learn (as we have) not to do that.

Yes, indeed, this car is lower than you think it is (though aesthetically it would benefit from an even lower stance a la SLP's Camaro), and the black plastic guards will only help you so much.

Also, I don't care for the plain, single-piston, sliding brake calipers on the V6 Camaros. I think I have to have the V8 just so I can have 400-piston Brembo calipers.
