Thought now would be a good time to start a build thread seeing that a large majority of stuff that I have wanted to do with this car has been done. Still waiting on a few other things and have some other BIG stuff planned in the future as well. Rewind to December 2011. I was currently stationed overseas and with nothing to do after work I'd watch old videos of my buddies and their cars as well as other videos of drag racing, road racing, etc. I had owned a couple of other vehicles before the Camaro, but liked them nowhere as much as I love this car.
First car was a 2001 Cobra. Great car for what it was, but problems kept presenting themselves and I traded in for a 2010 Sierra Ext Cab SLE. I was wanting to go with the show truck look, but after time I got the itch for performance again. You might ask why I didn't get a Mustang again. Well, TBH some of it was peer pressure lol. I have a few friends with 4th gens and every time I had rode in their car, it just seemed much quicker then the 4.6 DOHC modular motor (01s aren't supercharged). Hanging with people with Camaros all of the time got me thinking about test driving the new 5th gen. Once I got in side and punched it on the highway, I fell in love haha. Plus they look much better then the mustangs IMO.
That leads to December 23, 2011. Was home on mid tour leave and took a trip to the dealer to see what I could do. After about 4 hours at the dealership, I was signing papers for my brand new 2011 2SS/RS. One of the happiest days of my life.
