I kinda think the less noticed the better. Items that you have to look for. Other then the Ol' school SS stripes I had a local paint shop do, you have to look for (or listen).
I like to think of Her as a sleeper, then at a show the hood comes up... the uber trick LED tail lights start to dance. I hang my Bondurant school credentials hang from the rear view. Then it's you own, I don't want to hate but Transformers...... REALLY

Looking good! I like the SS emblem on the interior bezel near the shifter, I haven't seen that done before. Way to represent the AGM!

Ryanbabz71 11-09-2012 02:55 PM

You should do a zl1 emblem there :)

Going to add the heritage grille here in the next few wks when I am off during xmas.

Ryanbabz71 12-17-2012 07:56 AM

added the heritage grille finally. Not to bad to install. Didnt remove the front wheels or jack it up. All the hardware was easily (ok well there were a few curse works haha) accessible.

Next up is the SS (sparks) logo).

Hey, Ryan, looks great! I agree cpoboats, the small things are the best! I actually used to live in Carmel, Indiana, so it's cool to see another Central Indiana Camaro owner on the site!! I've been to Avon quite a few times for marching band also.. very great area! Love your Camaro, btw.
