I picked up my Camaro from Webster Motors here in Cody on June 16th. She's a Silver Ice Metallic 2SS w/ the RS package...and I'm in love with her. I have big plans for her in the near future. I'll be ordering the first "wave" of upgrades in 5 days. Pics and Videos are soon to come!:happyanim: My last car was a 2005 Mazda6, so this is about the best possible upgrade for a 21 year old Wyomingite like myself.

Thanks. The best part is since I traded that little green monster in for the silver bullet, I wound up paying less than $25K for my Camaro:happyanim:

I wish I could, but here in Wyoming its state law to have front plates. I thought about putting it in the windshield, but that caused visibility issues. I need to get one of those motorized mounts that retracts the plate under the front bumper.

Nice buy! Have fun modding!!!

Powhusku 08-10-2011 11:37 PM

Well, I'll begin ordering all the goodies tomorrow. I'm absolutely stoked to install them. Until then, here's some more pics of the adventures we've had.


Here she is the day of sale. They washed her once I bought her of course.

This could use some work.
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/pictur...ictureid=60154

All this has got to go.
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/pictur...ictureid=60155

This should get her cleaned up. I was actually really surprised at how little hydroplaning I noticed even though there was so much rain on the road.
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/pictur...ictureid=60156

Not 10 minutes later, it was dry as a bone outside and I had to stop for this. I must live in Wyoming or something.

Wow, is that Wyoming Road Rage ?? lol, j/k.

That is a beautiful place to have a car like your new Camaro. :thumbsup:

Enjoy the heck out of it and please post your pics as you start you mods. :)

Congratulations !!

Congrats! Welcome! Enjoy! Silver Ice Metallic is a great choice.

Wyoming is a state I want to visit some day :)

Powhusku 08-16-2011 09:31 PM

Alright, all the parts are ordered! I just got back to my college town for school (a 400+ mile drive). The car got an average of 23.5 miles to the gallon, but I was even more please to see that Premium gas here is only about $3.50 a gallon. I play a game called "Gran Turismo 5" which has a built in photo mode in which you can take pictures of the in-game cars, so naturally I took pics of my car. Pics are attached. God I love this game.

If you ever do, be sure to visit in your Camaro and hit the Beartooth Highway. Its probably the most amazing drive in America and is absolutely fantastic if you do it in a sportscar. :thumbsup:

Powhusku 08-17-2011 07:44 PM

Took my engine cover off today in anticipation of the new parts to find about an inch of dust on everything. Nothing a wet rag couldn't take care of. I think it looks much better with no cover.

Looks the goods man. Is there any way to reroute those heater hoses?

Yeah, a couple of guys talked/posted pics about it in a tread about engine covers. I need to find out what hose I need and where I can get it. Those things are ugly and probably dont help the heat issue too much. I must hide them at once!

10spokess 08-17-2011 09:45 PM

Yeah don't hide that beautiful LS motor with a piece of plastic you did the right thing man

Yeah, that hunk of plastic looked like sh!t. I didn't even like the painted ones. Besides, when you own a beast, you don't doll it up and make it look pretty. You show it off in its raw form, to scare off all the rustangs and brodozers :laugh:


P.S. People, new parts are coming in on Tuesday. I hope to get all the stuff installed ASAP when it all gets here, so keep a lookout for a bunch of new pictures and maybe a video:thumbsup:

Powhusku 08-22-2011 02:02 PM

First of my upgrades came in this morning. Thanks to Juiced1 for selling me this awesome CAI. Was extremely easy to install, and makes the car sound so much better. I'll report back on engine response improvements after I take her for a spin tonight after I get the other stuff installed.

That is looking good. Love GT5 also !

Powhusku 08-22-2011 08:03 PM

Well, finally got the exhaust on. Its the Corsa cat-back system. Took about 1.5 hours to install. I absolutely love the sound. :happyanim:
