Nice I wish the prices were better on them and I would get one myself, but I have too much I want to do around the house to take another car loan on.

I'm surprised you didn't go for the diesel, I figured you would have wanted the added power since you are ditching the Camaro and I'm assuming waiting a bit for another vette. If the diesels are anything like the overseas models they should be very reliable as well. 3.6L still looks solid though. My mom got an SRX with a similar drivetrain and the 3.6L and the only complaint I have is the factory transmission tuning, but definitely lots of potential hiding with simple changes.

Nope. I liked the new Colorado once I saw them coming into production. On top of that, the girlfriend made me an offer. Since she can't drive stick, she would also drive the Camaro. But due to the mods, she hated driving it. So she promised me that if I sold or traded the Camaro for a Colorado, that she would help me acquire a new Z06. Since she's wanted a pick up truck for the longest time, she'll drive the colorado as well in case she needs to. So in the end, I get rid of the Camaro and get a 2015 Colorado and a 2016 Z06.

Remember I live near Supermod and since I have the Camaro, I have extensive knowledge of where to get power adders for the LFX engine.

Just don't stop complaining about the delivery times over here. :lmao:

I would love to pick one of these trucks up in the future...
you mean start :lol:

I was told 4-6 months for my delivery. I simply said "I guess I'll just have to continue driving the Audi then" till my truck comes.

:lol: Yeah, don't start. No clue how that messed up.

And Audi?
Yup.

The backstory behind that is this. My gf had a 2008 Pontiac torrent GXP but it blew up. Lots of transmission warranty work. So she told me it was time to get a new vehicle but she didn't know what to get. So I pointed her towards Audi and she got the Audi Q5. Her mom on the other hand was driving a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville POS. Anytime Heather would take her mom out, they would take the Audi. Her mom fell in love with it and kept bothering my gf to borrow her car. Heather wasn't having any of it. So instead, she bought the Audi A6 for her mom to use. But then, her mom ended up in a medical nightmare resulting in arthritis and spinal stenosis. It was so bad her mom couldn't walk and use simple motor functions. This resulted in emergency surgery.

Since her mom was deemed incapacitated and unable to drive, Heather was convinced her mom would never walk again, let alone drive. In that instance, she basically said that shes taking her car back. And since she'd hate to waste a perfectly good, brand new 2013 Audi A6, she told me to use it. This prompted me to sell my trailblazer.

Low and behold, her mom has emergency surgery and the miracle came through that allowed her mom to walk. She's doing so with the help of a walker and rehab, but still unable to drive. However, her mom has been complaining that she wants her car back. So this prompted discussions with the gf about which direction to go. Then she made me the offer about the colorado.

You can see in the attached picture, before the driveway was done, her Audi Q5 behind the Camaro and the Audi A6 to the side of the garage.

Hence why the house is mortgage free, all of her cars are paid off in full (2 Audis and the Corvette) and she's willing to help me get a new 2016 Z06.

She would get one now but she wants to make sure the bugs are all out first before spending $100K on a car

Good things come with good fiscal planning. Unless the government is involved.
