Arrow Jabs's 2010 Black and Orange Camaro SS [COTW 11/7/11]

Little Background Story:

I owned a 2006 Charger Daytona Edition, I actually loved it being my first car and all. Really fun and awesome memories. Well as I'm sure most of you know Dodge isn't too reliable and the dealership here SUCKS! They actually gave me the car back without bolting my rim on, two weeks after that incident Engine just overheated and I knew it was time to sell... Well I've had my eyes on the Camaro for quite sometime and I knew exactly what I wanted...

I picked up my car November 3, 2010. Her name is Kawthar the Camaro

Nice! I also went from a Charger to a Camaro. If your Charger looked that nice, I can't wait to see what you do with the Camaro!

Magnaflow Competition Catback Exhaust Part number 16482

The tips aren't as nice at the ones without the GFX package but I had them painted matte black at the dealership so they're alittle better then the ones they come with.

I'll have a video and Pics up soon



Stock H Pipe with GM Performance Axle Back Exhaust removed
