LIVE: Driving the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS to Washington D.C. on July 4th

2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS

Update: We finally made it to Washington D.C. We’re going to take a little break for now and will update you on our total fuel-economy, average speed and other things shortly. Stay tuned.

It’s July 4th and we have an all-American icon hanging out in our garage – that’s right – the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS that we’re going to be test-driving all week. We figured what better way to celebrate July 4th than to take a mini road-trip in the new 2010 Camaro to our nation’s Capital City – Washington, D.C.

We’ve filled up the tank, reseted our mpg reading and the distance until empty reads 254 miles. Washington, D.C. is about 3 hours and 32 minutes away from our home-base in New Jersey (a total of 200 miles or so). So what are we going to do for the next 3 hours and 32 minutes? We’re going to enjoy the great American highways and provide you live updates during our trip. My friend Mac (from and I will be hitting the road very shortly.

You can follow all the updates via Twitter – but for those of you that hate the Twitter updates, I’ll be posting live updates here.

Join us here and ask us as many question as you want about the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS.

Happy Independence Day everyone.

Update no.5:

The cops in D.C. have been very helpful in letting us park in the middle of the street to take pictures of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS in front of landmarks… as long as we let them check out the car and sit inside it.

Update no.7: A BMW 3-Series Coupe actually has a motorized arm that hands you your seatbelt. The 2010 Camaro has a little strap and button to keep your seatbelt in reach.

Update no.8:

So we’re almost back home, but we’ve been messing around with some gadgets on the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS. Mac (from figured out how to connect his BlackBerry Bold 9000 through the Bluetooth Music Device connection. It worked seamlessly without any glitches and we are now pumping some 80’s tunes from his BlackBerry.

Update no 9:

We just pulled into a service area to use the restrooms so I thought I’d take a pic of the Camaro in the dark.
