White and Black....CarbonSS!

Lets see... I knew the moment that I saw the new Camaro that I had to have it. I was driving a Jetta at the time and basically waiting on something that would catch my eye and boy did I get thrown for a loop when I saw the Camaro! I purchased her in September 2009 and I was instantly hooked, what a beautifully thought out machine, a real pleasure to drive and the looks I got all over town were just insane, LOL! Then I decided to join a local Camaro club and from there my passion for mods just went into overdrive. Being newly discharged from the Marine Corps I decided that throwing money into an engine that I barely had time to get to know wasn't the direction I wanted to take this car, besides as she stood stock, she had more than enough ass to get me to the speed limit and beyond... So I decided to take the less traveled route and work on purely the look of my car. I was at first the only white Camaro in the city and then soon more and more started to show up, so I needed to make her stand out from the crowd. Those of you that know how innocently something like that can start out and how quickly it can turn into an obsession will understand the process that has gotten me to this point with the Camaro. Anyway, I will update as often as I can with newer pics of the things that I have done and had done to the car. ~Brad~

Texas Speed LT and Exhaust
Eventually I'd love to get a Matte white Maggie!!!
Too many mods to list and not enough money to buy them anyway, LOL! Saving the pennies takes a while!











Update... June 6, 2011... Sorry about the quality, took them with my cell phone.

Just in case your wondering, yes, I painted the Calipers myself...High temp Exhaust Paint







Before anyone goes and says anything... I got rid of the gauge cluster for two reasons...1. I hated them and didn't see the point in having them and 2. I wanted a place to put the Diablo Trinity tuner once I purchased it. Removed the Gauge pack and presto...ugly gauges gone and a spot for the diablo to eventually sit, LOL!


9-13-2011 Update!!

Made the Mail Flier for my Body Shop here in Troy, NY!!!



Update! March 2012, Exterior mod, brand new front end, new nose is sick!!!!
