Tmac, any chance of a slow roll/neighborhood cruise video. I'm trying to decide on this exact exhaust setup or leave resonators in tact.

Dude, I just read the whole backstory on your build. Sick, sick, sick...did i say SICK? That's what it's all about, being young and fly with a bad ass car. It fits you. You worked hard, and it's a positive story. Keep it up young man!!!

Sweet dude I just scored the chrome shifter. I've always wanted the black one but found an awesome deal on the chrome one. I was actually thinking bout painting mine white and putting the Camaro black kinda like how you did.

There has to be something against people converting their cars to RS's I tell ya.......

Just dont know what to say sir, but your car is one of the best looking on the entire board and your V6 Counterpart (ZoMBiE_KMF) actually took home a Moderator's Best award at C5F2 this past year.

Yet neither of you have picked up COTW.

I wouldn't take it personally....you and those who have seen your (and Zombies) car in person know what is up.

Keep rockin and that way when you do make COTW, everybody will say "Wow....how did we miss this one?"

Keep up the good work.



Yeah Andre....def sick in person. Make sure and check out the Trifecta Ghost Cam idle....pretty sick for a tune/V6 car.



Lawrence (and Chris)....get together and hook this car up. You know what it takes to capture the car and get the right angles on it. Plus you know what's up with HDR and how to use it. Help our brother make it shine!



Come on sir....really? This Camaro owner has actually taken and thought about what he wanted to do in steps and with a plan. He's hardly out of his teens and all you got to say is this? He could have saved longer and easily gotten a SS.....prolly an SS/RS too if he really wanted to wait.

Id rather see 1 tuned up V6 than to see 20 stock SS cars.....just my opinion. I like it when people are true afficiandos and want to "make it theirs."

Too many cars look too alike around here anyway.
Ivan
Ivan, I could have not said it better...making it yours and people complimenting on your actions is WHAT THIS THREAD IS ALL ABOUT!!!! tmac1granger33, Just keep doing your thing--You can't miss!!.. Kurt...

thank you broski, I guess converting to the RS package is frowned upon im not one to talk up my own car much , but man Lawrence has the BEST looking SW ive ever seen period! Hopefully one of these weeks we will have some more CCNM members pick up COTW including The SIZZLE! too bro you deserve it just as much with a sick looking whip and all you do for the C5 community
