Ok guys, I'm ready to get my garage back. Its been entirely too long. Is anyone interested in a GTO shell? Most of the car has been stripped but still a few trinkets left in it. Most of yall know the damage on the car so I wont go into too much detail here but will get pics up later. Driver front corner is damaged taking out the fender bumper and hood, glass is intact except for busted windshield, has a couple scrapes and a dent on the driver side door and quarter but passenger side is smooth. Also has a dented floorpan under driver footwell.

If you want it, come get it. If not, I'll be stripping the last few pieces off and hauling it off to a junkyard or scrap metal shop hopefully by the end of the year. I would rather someone be able to do something with it.

So you'll have room for your "new" IBM GTO?

I think Mike needs help. He's worrying me. He has a cell phone now, uses "slang" on his text messages, and is actually taking off work during Christmas. I might schedule and intervention with him if he sells the GTO.

I even have an I Pad now...

So today I had a visit with my insurance agent to review my policies. It turns out they have a partnership with Hagerty. So by the time I left, I had increased my coverages and cut the GTO's insurance rate in half! I should have done this years ago.

Also, I saw a new COPO Camaro being trailored down Hwy. 16 in Denham Springs this afternoon.

Any of you guys make frequent trips to Chevy dealers? I've been eyeballing Camaro's lately and i am trying to decide between an SS or ZL1. An SS optioned out the way i want it comes up to $53k ($45k + $8k for S/C) or the ZL1 which basically comes the way i want it for $59k.

But i know those online prices usually don't mean anything because dealers mark up limited/special cars. So I'm just curious what the ZL1's are going for at the dealers.

Depends on what you're after. All out speed, get the SS and put a blower on it. My brother in law has already gone 10.4 with his SS with a little 2.9 whipple. The ZL1 is more of an all around car, hence the reason the mags give it the nod against the GT500 although the GT500 skull smurfs it in any competition of speed. The Magna suspension is bad ass and you can't get that on an SS, unless you opt for the 1LE? and put a blower on it......best of both worlds. Based on the $45K price tag I'm guessing you maybe looking at that already.

I look at Camaro's practically every weekend. Most dealers in the Baton Rouge area are not adding cost on top of ZL1s. Ross Downing has a few in stock at MSRP.

Hey guys,

Tranny has lost 3-4, fine in R -1-2. Time for a rebuild? Anyone else have this happen? Any idea on rebuild costs?

Ya, already considering the SS2 w/1LE package. I do like the GT500's, but the problem with them is the fact that they do not come standard with anything worth a damn. So by the time I option them out, they are over $65k. Of course though, they have much more options. The ZL1 is the most appealing to me, for its options, looks and hopefully its rarity & electability.

That's great to know. I looked around online and some idiotic dealers were asking $70k for the ZL1.

mine went out around 68-70K IIRMC. @ 84K now working great. Price was the same or less than I was quoted locally and they know there stuff, whereas I was telling locals to add this do that.

Yeah, but I'm all talk.


I did see a dark red ZL1 on Burnside in Gonzales today. I had just picked up the G6 from Duplessis. It was there for the second time for a CEL. They can't find anything wrong. They just clear out the codes and send me on my way. The car runs just fine, but it's up for inspection next month. So I've got to get this resolved! Very frustrated. I guess I'll give Brian Harris Chevrolet a shot at it. I'd like wait until at least July to get rid of it for the A5.

Thing is, the car runs as smooth as ever. If the CEL was not on, you'd never think there was a problem. Duplessis did say these codes were "historical". I believe all three codes are for misfires.

If they were history codes they shouldn't come back on once they rest it. If you can bring it to me when they come back on. I'd like to take a look and see if I can figure something out for you.

Hey Patrick. The CEL came back on about 25 miles after we picked it up today.
I've been searching the net, but I can't really find anything. Some say the catalytic converter could be bad, but I wouldn't think that would cause a misfire code... Who knows.
