Prior to buying the camaro I had a Ford F-150 Supercrew Lowered Whipple Supercharged truck

Loved the truck but had to sell it, initially checked out the dodge challenger but I did not like it at all. After test driving my first 5th gen camaro , I bought it right there on the spot. 2LT RS IBM 2011 Camaro

This was a great car but man I had the itch to upgrade to the SS BAD!!

I was on the prowl to see if I could trade in my V6 but was not getting good trade in value pretty much anywhere I went. Was really looking for a Synergy Green but I just couldn't make the numbers work where they had SGM in stock. Eventually I found my current ride online with only 1,000 miles on it (used) and figured why not go check it out . Surprisingly enough they offered me a lot for my V6 (I was only out 2k) and I couldnt refuse as it was a no haggle type dealership. Plus IOM was my second favorite color choice as well as it being a 2SS . The only thing I kinda miss is the HUD but I've gotten used to not having it.

Here is what I found as I arrived to the dealership

I was extremely happy with the deal and could not wait to start modding
First mods included 20% tint all the way around, painted gloss black tail light bezels as well as AAC interior lights (Blue dome and UV Footwells)

Dropped the car using LG Super springs to give it an aggressive stance

Needed to change the sound as the car was just too quiet upgraded to a full Doug Thorley Axelback exhaust , with DT 1 7/8 Longtube Headers. Really made the aggressive sound I was looking for

Decided to put on some AAC Colorshifting Halos as well as an RGB scanner
