There will not be much change done to the outside of the car. I like the way the car looks. The only things that bothers me are the two large Chevrolet bowtie emblems. I will probably replace those with SS at some point. I may also replace the stock 20 inch wheels and tires with 18 or 19 inch wider wheels and tires for better handling, performance and ride comfort.

Why did I buy a 2010 Camaro? In 2008, I sold my 1998 Torch Red Z51 6-speed manual Corvette Coupe to my brother-n-law. That left me with my 2003 4x4 Extended Cab GMC Sierra. When gas shot way up in cost, I decided I didn't really need the truck. So, I began looking at what was available in the way of sporty coupes. I didn't want to go the Corvette route again, I had already done that. So I started researching the new Camaro, Challenger, Mustang and G37 Coupe. I chose the 2LT/RS with manual transmission because I wanted to be more responsible and drive a car that gets better gas mileage and is better on the environment. So, I traded the truck for it and after driving it about 6 months, I realized that I missed the torque of a V8, the stopping power of the Corvette and was tired of shifting gears, since I drive 90-95% city driving.

In April 2010, I ordered a 2SS/RS L99. In May, I traded in the 2LT/RS for "Silver Street". Silver Street will be getting better suspension components and a little boost to performance. I am looking forward to "Silver Street"s transformation.

I have one just like this, everything is the same as yours. I only wish I had done a little more home work before I took the leap!
I am thinking about going to Pa. to Tom Henry Chevy. Raceing and make a deal with them for one already set up, (superchager & ect.)
I have had this one about 6 weeks and less than 1000 miles.

( I HAVE NEVER LET MY SCHOOLING INTERFERE WITH MY EDUCATION ) until now!

Spike, you don't have to buy the car with the supercharger already installed. You can alway find a reputable shop to fix you right up.

My first F-Body was not a Camaro, but a Trans Am. It was a 1977 Silver/Red automatic (Silver Streak). I had a 10-foot, two seater, GW Invader, flat-bottom speed boat with 50hp Mercury outboard motor painted to match (silver with red decal). I cannot find a picture right now, but I do have pictures of what I consider my real first F-Body, a 1978 Trans Am with T/A 6.6 220hp/325tq, Hurst 4-speed manual, radio-delete option car. I ordered it without decals and had the dealer put the gold decals on the car. It had black vinyl interior. I wanted biggest/baddest engine and no frills. I drove the car for 10 years. It caught fire and burned while a friend was driving it. He was not hurt. Here is that car:

I just installed my new Barton shifter for automatic transmissions on to 'Silver Street'. It has the SS/RS logo on it.
