Mako22 Build: v.1.0
 
When I sold my 2002 Z28 (below) a couple years ago to buy my house, I told myself it was time to grow up and that I would have to do without having a Camaro for a while. That sentiment lasted about 3 months.

Based on recommendations from this forum, I sought out Becky from Rodgers Chevrolet to help me track down what I was looking for - a white 1SS (tired of swirls...) with a sunroof. Sure enough, she was able to acquire one from a nearby dealership that matched my needs. After a great buying experience, Becky put the car on a truck and sent it down to me.

Once I stopped staring at it in the garage for a few days, it was time to put Phase I of the build into action
