My "VERY" 1st Camaro Story & Project

So here it is, even though this isn't my very 1st thread. I will say this is my VERY 1st Camaro ever owned and I planned on making it a one of a kind. Its pretty hard to contend with most of the Camaro on this site (there are some pretty darn SWEET ones here i.e GarysCustomz, Veteran 1, Showstopper, the list goes on...) but thats why these guys are giving me some motivation, very costly which sucks, lol.

I've been a lurker on this board since Sept 2009, did a couple of posting here and there but really couldn't do much not knowing much about the Camaro or even owning one. So I sat back and admired everyone elses hard work and dedication that they had towards there Camaro. At that particular time I owned a Chrysler 300 Touring. I did some modding here and there with that particular car seen here. But once the Camaro came out and wasn't just a rumor anymore, I knew eventually I would own one. My heart fell in love with the Summit White or Black. I'm a black guy who loves white things, what can I say? Just always been a fan of either colors, so I figured why not incorporate both. Here is my previous car stock then I transformed it into a one of kind 300.

Now a couple years later, someone offered me a deal I couldn't refuse on my 300 and I knew at that time, it was time to get the love of my wife. On August 17th, I purchased a 2011 2SS/RS M6 in black with no regrets what so ever. She was still under going through the inspection process and wasn't even on the lot. I told them to leave off the quarter flares/front license plate bracket and she was spoken for. Told the Salesman lets go talk #'s, and the rest was history! She only had 4 miles on her when I drove her off the lot. Once you go black you never go back

Not even a week of actually having the car. I've already made some small modifcations. 35% all around, Adaptive performance DRL harness and AAC PW13 bulbs and AAC License plate LED bulbs. Easy 5min modifcations, that you can't go wrong with and the cheapest.

Yesterday me and a friend a mine made a trip to BNT performance in Wilmington, NC. I had to get the car dyno'd to see what the actual #'s were before I did some major overhaul on the engine mods and to see where and what I actually wanted to get done. The #'s were decent but of course she will never see them again. I'm awaiting some parts from GarysCustomz which consist of the Heritage Grille painted black, Street scene lower grille w/ ducts painted in black and the ACS V8 splitter painted in Satin black. In addition to that, I had to do a quick order with AAC with some blue interior lights with the trunk bulb in blue and the V.2 RGB LED scanner. I haven't chose which wing I will go with or side skirts/rear bumper. Its a toss up between a few. More to follow!
