I am planning a car show to raise money for the Josh Martino Scholarship Fund. Josh was from my hometown DuBois, PA. He was serving in the US Marine Corps when a horrific training accident in Neveda took his life when a mortar malfunctioned. He was just 19 years old. I am looking for anyone out there to show some support and be at this car show. It is at the DuBois Mall behind Sears on August 31, 2013. The address is 5522 Shaffer Rd, DuBois, PA 15801. There will be plenty to do and we expect a huge turn out. If anyone out there is willing to participate that would be so fantastic and I would deeply appreciate it!

Today I just installed a set of LED P13W fog light bulbs. These are pure white and drastically improve the visual appearance of the running light.

This is a before picture of the vehicle with the yellow lights.

I started with the drivers side. I turned the steering wheel completely over to the left to allow access to the inner fender well, like so.

You will notice there are three screws holding the inner fender well in and you will have to remove these screws to gain access.

You reach in and grab your fog light and you have to twist it so that it will pop out of the retainer. There is a button on the side of the harness you have to hold that will release your stock bulb. The new bulb just pops in. You put every thing back together and you will repeat these steps for the passenger side.

I bought an Eibach Pro-Kit. 1 inch lowering springs for the car. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I snapped some before and after pictures of the cars fender to tire space. Really was worth it and it did not really effect the ride quality. I recommend these to anybody.

I lowered the Camaro. It looks a lot meaner now. I snapped a few shots when I was driving some country roads.

So here are my thoughts for some future plans.

Exterior
I would like to get a VR GM blade spoiler.
I was thinking about getting one of those polished trunk lid covers with the SS in the center in red.
If I dont do that I thought about getting the trunk lid insert painted white too.
I also am podering a heritage grille with a sparks restoration SS emblem.

Performance:
my next mod will be long tube headers with high flow cats.
I would like a Hurst Short Throw.

Interior:
is something I need to stop neglecting. I hear river city will paint the door panels way cheaper than RPI can sell me a set. I would like a nice red and white combo. So panels would be red and different bezels and stuff will be white.
I will be getting some Lloyds Mats, but I know I will only use them for car shows.

Haven't really updated the thread in a while. Hope everybody is doing great. Got some plans in the works for some new stuff. As always you guys will be the first to know and see the pictures!

Had some fun times this weekend with my SRT4 car show friend. Pictures were taken by a friend of mine with a Chevy Indy pace truck with 575,000 miles. Hit 3 car shows. Saturday we went to the Murray Ford car show in DuBois Pa. Saturday night we went to a cruise in at the Philipsburg, PA bowling ally sponsored by UMI Performance. Sunday went to a car show at the Clearfield, PA fairgrounds but got disqualified because I left early.
