Bruce - this is just getting ridiculous. How do you even come up with the idea to use a bumper for a reservoir? I think you have to really be off your rocker to think in this manner.

Something a little different. Tom and his fab crew did an awesome job on it.

No drugs or alcohol were used in the creation of this vehicle.... Just lots of Diet Coke...and maybe a little Captain Morgan..

Works well on square wheels too...

I think GTA could use some to make a BIG FUNNEL so that it is EASIER to fill his gas tank.

I'm really hoping by the end of September, but you know the way that goes... I thought it'd be ready for C5Fest.

And going past SGMP last night, there were two of us in the car coming back from a business trip and the guy with me said - the Camaro came with a 400 hp motor, right ? I said yeah. He then proceeded to tell me I was a little demented since the SST can do that with 2 cylinders...

After a second of deep thought, we came to the conclusion that it is amazing how this new Camaro makes us do some fairly radical things... Kudos to GM for bringing this car back.

Your V2 would put my V8 to shame.

Hell, I can't wait to hear how it SOUNDS............

I'm guessing you are doing things to the car that, back in April, you had no idea you were gonna do.

Nah, not a chance. When you get that Whipple on there, look out

The funny part is at idle and part throttle it will be quieter than it was stock with the Stainless Works race mufflers. Gets a little louder though when you lay into it.

Yeah, you know the way it goes. Just like you are doing with your Camaro now. You step back and think "Hey, if I just did ___________, that would be cool" Yours looked good at C5Fest, but now it looks GREAT.

I'm really excited to see some video of your car, speedster. Is there a dyno that will read high enough for it? A video of that would be cool in iMax!

Well, here is a neat interim pic. Not the best angle to show the true width, but these are 345's on the SST. (The drop coilovers have not been installed in this pic so it is sitting high). For reference those are 3 inch exhaust pipes with no tips... The tires are approximately 14 inches wide each.

The second pic will give you an idea of the aspect ratio off of the car. (This is the 345 on a different wheel)

The bowtie is going away. It's being replaced with the badge on the bottom.


It is the factory GM SS emblem with a "T" added. It has the bend in the middle to match the rear panel.
