Maybe some of you have been around for other "Are you kidding me moments" in automative dealerships. The M5 in Fort Worth? The Gallardo from Quebec?

Well, lets add a ZL1 to the long list of dealerships who have cocked up a customer car and then dodged as much responsibility as humanely possible.

Camaro ZL1 Gets Totaled, Dealership Says Fuck You To Customer

Camaro ZL1 Gets Totaled, Dealership Says Fuck You To Customer

Repost: Imagine bringing your Camaro ZL1 in for a paint issue, only to find out some shop monkey took your baby out for a joy ride, and smashes the car into a telephone pole.

"Imagine trading in your 2011 Camaro SS and selling your 1969 Camaro SS to buy a brand new ZL1 Camaro. These cars are borderline race cars with almost 600HP and about 550 lb.-ft of torque. Not for the weak of heart…

The ZL1 is your baby and you treat it with the best care you can. The car only gets driven about 11,000 miles in the two years you own it. But then you take the car into the dealer for some warranty work for an issue with the paint.

At 9:00AM Monday morning the dealer calls you saying your car has been totaled. What would you do in that situation?

That's exactly what happened to one member over on Camaro5. According to his story, the car was dropped off for some paint issues. On a Sunday an employee of the dealership came in and took the car for a joyride. While out testing the limits of the car, the employee lost control of the car and wiped out a telephone pole.

As of right now the whole case is being hashed out by the owners and dealers insurance companies. The owner is asking for a brand new ZL1 and it looks like the dealer doesn't want to do that. There is a lot of talk on the forum as to what is right and wrong. Even the local media has also picked up the story and has been doing their investigations.

Whatever the outcome may be, it's not going to be a pretty one. The owner lost out on his pride and joy and the dealership will lose out on money and its reputation."
