According to conversation in the Camaro5 forum, the owner of the totaled ZL1 has been working with the dealership that was responsible for the crashed muscle car.
The dealership said that the employee shouldn’t have been in the vehicle, and that they weren’t responsible for the crashed car. They tried to give the ZL1 owner another vehicle, but it had more mileage and options that didn’t interest him, and the offer was rejected.
He wanted a new ZL1.
Long story short, General Motors and Berger Chevrolet in Grand Rapids, Michigan, are sending the man a 2013 Camaro ZL1 to be picked up at the dealership in Delaware.
We’re not sure whose insurance company is paying for what, but it looks like everything has been settled … so far.
