Arrow ELEKTRA SS [COTW 4/2/12]

Hello everyone. It all started with that pipe dream back in late 2009 when I spotted my first ever aqua blue camaro SS. I had been searching and waiting for a long time on the Gen5 camaro and from that moment I saw that car I picked up the phone and called my buddy. He put me on the waiting list. After two weeks I received a phone call with good news and bad news, the bad news was they stopped producing the Aqua Blue, the good news is he was able to secure me one. The day I picked her up was like a kid in a candy store! I began the mods immediately with the help of my friends company and she was featured in SEMA 2010 and 2011. I have received more compliments on the Aqua Blue color than any other thing about that car, and I don't have a day that goes by that I regret not getting her! I call her Elektra and have listed a few of the mods below what has been done. I have only a few more mods in place including boosting her with twin turbo and she will be COMPLETE!

Pictures of ELEKTRA CAN BE LOCATED HERE:

Thanks Gunny! I am actually a little taken back and stunned but in a good way! I certainly have to thank the powers at C5 for picking my car!

Thanks Jmack! You can't go wrong with the TSW wheels! From your pic it looks mean! Black and red is a great combo.

Thank you! I argued with one of my buddies on what stripes to put on her, but flat black was no question in my mind!!!! She's not done yet, I have a few engine mods I will be doing and will post pics in the future when she is complete.

Well Thank you very much! It's an honor, there are a ton of beautiful cars out there, I have done the best I can in a short amount of time with her thanks to SEMA, and shes not done yet! I love designing and modifying cars and this has been my favorite project by far!
