I moved my Camaro out of the barn to get the quad out yesterday, and it got rained on. When I put it away, I hit the "mist" on the wiper switch to clear off the windshield. The wipers rose up from their "home" position and swiped one time like they should. Only they didn't return to the "home" position. They just stopped 4" above the cowl. I went through all the selections on the switch. (delay, on, fast) Everything works, they just won't drop down to their final resting spot.
I didn't have time to mess with it, so I'm being lazy hoping for the quick answer here. (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/ph34r.gif)
Anybody experience this before? Do I need a new wiper motor?

I pulled the trigger on a Summit White 07 Trailblazer SS w/50k miles for the wifey last week. It's got "certified preowned" status which gives me the 100k mile powertrain warranty. It seems to be well taken care of. Body and paint are perfect (not a single scratch or stone chip), interior is perfect, wheels are an 8 out of 10 with some chips in the clearcoat.
My question is...Is there anything special I need to know about the LS2? It won't be raced or abused, so I figure regular oil changes with good syn oil should suffice. Are there any common problems that I should be on the lookout for. Any extra special attention that the SS model requires?
I searched one of the TBSS forums, but didn't find the answers I was looking for. I figure since this is a site full of LTx/LSx gearheads, someone else in here probably has one, or knows alot about them.

I came home from work yesterday and flipped on the TV to find "Ultimate Factories 2010 Camaro SS" on the Discovery Channel. I've seen the U.F episodes with the C6 Corvette, Ferrari, and the BMW Z4, but I never knew they did one on the new Camaro. I only caught the last 20 min so I'll be looking for it to replay soon.
Just thought I'd let you guys know it's out there.

I laughed outloud when the narrator talked about lowering the "3,000 lb body" onto the chassis. (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif)

Looks like I'll be heading down to the Greenville area the weekend of August 23rd for a family reunion. I'm planning on driving my Camaro down since it gets 6-7 mpg better than my wife's Liberty. Plus it's more comfortable, and just cooler. (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
I wouldn't mind towing my tire trailer down if I thought there was some autocross event somewhere nearby (2 hours or less from Greenville). I like visiting other regions, so I already checked SCR's website, and they're not showing anything for the month of August. Are there any other organizations or sports car clubs that may be putting on any event that weekend?

I was doing an autotrader search for 3rd gen Camaros in the 89-92 year range and was surprised with the prices I was seeing. I only did a 200 mile search and got about a full page of Camaros in the 7k-10k price range. And a few of them were near 15k. Granted, they were the super low mileage garage queens. But come on, you can get a really nice low mileage LS1 car for that kind of coin. Most of the cars in the 7-10k range had between 25k and 50k miles on them. This is what struck me as odd. I bought my 94 Z28 6-speed hardtop last summer with only 28k in absolutely mint (and I mean M-I-N-T) condition for 7k. And as far as LT1 4th gens go, that seems to be the top of the pricerange.
Is this a sign of things to come? Is my car going to increase in value once the 5th gens come out? This doesn't make any sence to me.
