Default New car.

Well, after 30 something daily drivers that I purchased outright, I had a moment of insanity and financed something. I thought back and realized that of those 30 something cars, only two of them were ready to drive with nothing wrong. Went and bought a 2018 Camaro 1SS, it was going to be a 2018 mustang, but I just can't get over the looks of the S550, plus I hated the seats in the mustang.

Here are a few pics of it, going to have to get more when it's light out.

Ford went full retard in 2018, and Chevy fallowed suit in 2019. Seems like the 17 mustang and the 18 Camaro are going to be the last good looking pony cars for a while. good choice, I've been beat by a 17 SS a coworker has in both of my mustangs. They a quick cars.

I hate payments, but I got tired of driving shitboxes that were in a state of constant repair.

Like my truck, still hate payments.

Ford went full retard in 2016 IMO, I've never liked the front end on it. And yeah, it's a quick little bastard.

The flat part on the bottom? It's supposed to improve the driving experience. I honestly didn't notice it while driving.

Pretty much my thoughts.

European cars have been doing it for a few years now and some domesticís are picking it up. I really love that design. The Mercedes GTS I drove a couple weekends ago had that steering wheel or similar, very ergonomic.

Sorry, 15, the S550 body is what I hated. The S197 was far better looking.

Had a 16 2SS. Awesome car!!! Be careful in the rain as the stock Goodyear’s hydroplane easily.

Cool car, congrats. I had an SS for a while but the lack of visibility out of that thing killed it for me.

Most people I talk to have nothing but good things to say about you, but you sure come across as a condescending prick. Do you have an inferiority complex you've attempted to overcome through overachievement? Or were you fondled as a child?

You and slow99 should date. You both have passive aggressiveness down pat.

It looks like the love child of a 98 camaro and a 76 mustang. I love the side profile, I love the rear end, but I HATE the nose on it. Plus the clutch pedal sits in a weird position.

Thanks. I daily drove an 05 GTO, so I know what it's like to drive one with poor visibility. The SS has a really good backup camera on it that helps with that.

You reminded me of my 04 GTO. I had no problem with visibility. Easy to work on, nice interior, great AC. Only problem was the fucking steering wheel shake I could never eliminate. I might have kept it if that steering wheel didnt go all Michael J Fox at anything over 45mph.

I couldn't see shit out of the back of my 05, damned spoiler blocked everything. The suspension bushings were a major weak spot on the GTO.

Nice Camaro and I like the color. Most I see cruising around are almost always white.

Fresh radius rod bushings and road force balancing the stock wheels and tire size was the fix for my '04. The stock GTO bushings are subject to premature wear by an inherent bad design.
