Arrow COMM 17 has gone Topless [COTW 7/14/13]

We are now a 2 camaro family… Blu needed a companion and momma wanted a convertible to enjoy the
beautiful weather that we have in Southern California.

A special thanks to Robb at Camino Real Chevrolet. Since IBM is on hold and you cannot order it
Robb had to do some extreme searching. He found the only IBM SS/RS within a 1,000 miles of us.
I really wanted the first year run, and it HAD to be IBM.

My Rob (comm54) tried to make it a surprise for my birthday but couldn’t contain himself,
some say I’m spoiled, I say loved…

Here are a picture from pick up.

My first mod is a clear bra. Tint to follow but it was a 3 day weekend, my birthday cruise, and there was just no way I was gonna not be able to put the top down.

Awesomeness! Holy Cow! Bookend blues... one hard top one soft top. Congrats. They both look fantastic. I guess this gives me some more motivation to buy a second Camaro...ZL1! I just have to figure out what lottery to win or bank to rob.

Spent last weekend at the NMCA/NMRA at AutoClub Speedway enjoyed 3 days of autocrossing. Worked the suspension as hard as I could. The handling is awesome, and it felt great on the track. I finished in the middle of the pack for the modern muscle class, it was more driver holding back then car. This was the first time she had been on the track and definately ready for more.

As far as the daily drive improvement with the suspension, the ride is a little firmer, which is not a bad thing. The one big thing i noticed is I have this big hill in my neighborhood, before the suspension when i came down the hill i would feel like the back end wanted to slide out, now i can just haul a$$ down the hill....
And of course my kids love to do the slalom, and before it would bounce you around in the car, now its a smooth back and fourth motion.

As far as the cosmetic's the change in stance makes the car look that much better!

Going in for the chasis brace tomorrow.


HEre is a run from sunday, what a blast!!!
