Arrow Camaro21's Journal [COTW 9/27/10]

Camaro21's Build:

On September 13, 2009 my car "Rubye" (which I named after my Grandmother that raised me and just turned 96 years old on Sept. 21st) was brought home. I bought her off of the lot as a 2SS/RS, black with cyber grey rally stripes. Since then, I have spent alot of time and effort on her upgrades making her more to match my personality. Now I can truly say i am pleased with the way she has transformed. I have not only upgraded her looks, but her power as well. Some may like it and some may not, but as most of you have told me, it is my car and that's all that matters..

Today I have over 65,000 miles on her and she is still going strong. I have attended MTI Funfest I & II and Camaro5Fest I & II.

Below are a list of upgrades that have been done..

If "Rubey" had her own page on facebook, I'd be a fan. I'm already a fan in person. "Karr" is jealous but I keep her in check. Great job Keith, And Congrats!!
