2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS: Gettin' Mean

May 17, 2010


So the Camaro is on a return tour with us after having its' guts ripped out. Literally.

I drove it just before it went into the doctor and it wasn't pretty. Coughing, grinding and all manner of unnatural sounds that make you wince and suck in your breath through clinched teeth. Kind of like watching a dude get kicked square in the.... (yeah).

I'm happy to report that after driving it all weekend, I never found a hiccup in the transmissions' performance. It felt strong. After a few good pedal stomps and hard shifts I'm reminded of a colleagues comments regarding the Camaro, "Big motor. Big pushrods. Most power." It's a riot to drive when you push it. Listening to her scream off the line, you can't help but smile.

If I was to go our cruising for some back street trouble, this and the Viper would definitely be my top choices in our fleet.
