The Story:

I was using my Porsche 911 C4 as a daily driver but its relaibility started to become an issue.  A persistant overheating problem that I couldn’t track down led to some time in the shop where I learned that there was a crack in the block.  Knowing that the engine could blowup at anytime, I quickly traded it in for this Camaro at the local Chevrolet dealer.  I also purchased the 5-year / 100k mile extended warranty and wheel/tire warranty, which I still have yet to take advantage of because its been extremely reliable and trouble free.

The car had one previous owner who had only driven it about 4,500 miles, so it was in immaculate shape.   The dealer claimed to have trouble selling it because of the manual transmission with most perspective buyers wanting the automatic.  I was just happy to trade in the Porsche before it was nothing more then a parts car.
