Do you want to make the car for the magazine? Are they driving it every day? (not being snotty, just hoping you thought about that a bit.)

I say make the car for you. If it was my car, I'd go for package #2... it's the "go" package.

Do what makes you happy.

All three of them are what I would do DE. =) I'd be super happy with any of them. That's why this is such a tough decision. I'd like a little more bass for my sound system, I would like to launch the car when I do track it those handful of times, and I'd like a little more aggressive front end. I don't have a vibrant color like Russ's car so I feel the need to accentuate the body lines a little more so they're more visible.

Russ, see above comments. That is a good idea though, getting drag wheels/tires/axles and just clean up the paint. That may become option 4. lol

Since you've already got such a monster I'd recommend getting the paint and whatnot all squared away... #1 Loving your ride.

I've loved your car from day one, I keep the Camaro Now magazine in my classroom for my students to read and they're always drawn to the one with yours on the cover
But I've been watching the Rideskinz bumper thread and I've got to say as aggressive as your car is now, that would really bring it more attention! Plus, I'd love to see it in IBM so I might have ulterior motives here

I voted for #1 Jay. If you're really wanting another magazine feature that's where you're going to need to invest in. Try to make your goal that when people go to a car show she's the first car they look at.

Option 4. You have to be careful with 'too' many visual only mods. There is usually a law of diminishing returns or doing something and seeing later on that you liked the original modifications better.

You don't want your Camaro to stop looking like a Camaro.

Wouldn't that mean option 2?

That's pretty much what I said with the exception of fixing the paint. I know the chips in my paint have cost me some 1st place car show finishes. Nothing wrong with getting that squared away.

At the end of the day it's about what you want, so take our opinions with a grain of salt.

I'm weighing the options, and enjoying the different perspectives people are giving.

New mix-ups of the packages are turning the creative cogs in my brain so it's all positive.

Option 4.

No offense to rideskinz but i think your car looks perfect! In my opinion, the new front bumper would just be too much going on. I would just fix the rock chips, get the vented fenders and add a little bit of "go" mods. Hence option 4 lol.
