Here is my Camaro - Boobies
I am altering her a little at a time, and she will most likely never be complete, but always part of the family. Our family refers to our Camaro as our First Daughter and the Grandparents are soo proud as are we. We now actually have our first Son since 19 May 2012! The Name / Plate BOOBIES / 5318008 comes from the fact that the plate "Topless" was already taken, and she runs around most of the time with her top off!
Since seeing the Camaro Coupe Concept in Detroit in 2006, I felt that GM could bring the power back. When I saw the Camaro Convertible Concept on Detroit in 2007, I decided I would make one mine! Then in 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011 I nearly drooled over the cars, waiting for the time that one would be mine.
I need to thank my superb wife!! After 5 minutes in the new Camaro, she told me about how she loves me and that car is beautiful and great, but asked when we were getting a new exhaust because she felt it didn't sound like a car fit for her man!

The first 6 items were installed by Streel Legal Customs and everyone of them was installed poorly but don't get me started on that. I installed all the rest of the items with assistance from my wife. We love this car and plan to keep it in the household for many many years to come. We have a low and slow approach to our mods with about a 8 or so year plan laid out so far to keep the yearly investment down to a manageable level for a small young family.
