Thanks Inferno!!! I was blown away after I posted the thread, and was chosen! I am pretty new to the site. I figured I would have quite the waiting list to be COTW because there are some beautiful cars out there, I am just thrilled some like mine! I am thankful for all of the kind posts and nice people on here! I really have enjoyed this site!

Hey, they know how to pick the nicest Camaros. 52 cars in a year should be ale to get most of the really nice ones.

Yeah the ones I have seen so far are extremely nice! I was just stunned being chosen right out of the gates, but certainly take it as a cool honor. A lot of people could care less about the bragging rights or contests etc. but I certainly put a lot of pride in my car and the whole reason I got the car was to make it a show quality ride!!

You should take pride in it! You put that effort in for you to enjoy! I feel the same way about customers cars (and even our cars) when it comes to putting them together. It's an extension of who we are and what we enjoy.

It's exciting to see new cars like yours pop up and be runnin out of the gates with clean and smart mods.

Well done and deserved!

Thanks Ivan,

I certainly appreciate it very much and I do take a lot of pride in her. I am just excited to put the final touches and be complete. It's killing me not being done yet, but she is already show ready and looks good IMO. I certainly love to see all of the different styles and diversity. Some styles are not my cup of tea, but certainly have the respect for it! That is actually where diversity can be a good thing!

you're never "done" modding. It's like a drug.

So your pushing 500hp at the wheels from just intake, exhaust and a tune??? Could you tell me where you got it tuned at? Sounds like I need to send mine there.

cold air intake, Borla Atak, headers, polished and ported intake manifold and tune went from 426 rwhp to around 485 rwhp, I added NOS, but that is being replaced with some new goodies. Once I finish my Engine Mods in the next few months I will have the Dyno results for exact numbers. I have added and removed some small things for shows. My buddies at Promotorsports did everything for SEMA.
