Re: My first ride in one.
Well your closest chevy dealer probably has at least a 6 cylinder 6th gen you could test drive, the new SS (while I am not a fan of the looks) is lighter and has the extra 25 horse, so it is a fun ride.
I am an old car guy so my first preference is to grab the keys of classic, over something new.
I purchased the 2010 SS for my wife as kinda a back up car, or to be used when she has to drive to LA or san diego over night. Even though the color is considered rare, there are a bunch of 5th Gen Camaros out there, so I don't worry (as much) when she goes out of town, like i would if she parked one of our 60's cars overnight.
I drive the 2010 every so often, and it is just a different feeling horsepower wise, vs the 69.
The 6 speed manual is fun, I will probably put one in my 64 C/10.
