2SS-RS CGM - The Punisher

Getting a thread going for my ride.

Ordered on October 15th, 2008
Delieverd June 15th, 2009


1100, Preliminary order accepted (10.15.08)
2000, Order accepted by GM (4.23.09)
3000, Order accepted by production control (4.30.09)
3100, Order available to sequence(??)
3300, Order scheduled for production(5.22.09)
3400, Order broadcast (6.1.09)
3800, Order produced 2G1FT1EW7A9116235
6000, Delivered to the customer(6.15.09)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Picked up the car yesterday and it had 33 miles on it already. But it's all good. . . Paint is perfect for me... Keep in mind, I have NEVER seen a CGM Camaro but on the net. . . I kept the faith and stayed with my first color choice. . . Damn glad I did too!

On a side note:
I was going to make a separate post about this.. but decided not to.

I feel very sad for those who couldn't wait it out. . . Granted I was almost there. . Dealer had a nice GXP Solstice in the lot i thought about picking up. . .

This car will far pass any expectation you have. . . I have sat in many pre-Pro camaro's at the shows, but damn... when you actually get to spend time in one with out people hanging their heads in, checking it out .... damn.... just damn, is it nice.











About 3 days after I got the car I went ahead and got my Punisher Skull on the hood.





On 6.23.09 I got the Vinyl Rock Blocker put on the car.

Hey Beans, I can see the skull much better in these pics. I like it but I'm still laughing about that guy I sent you a pic of. "why would he put that on the Camaro? Its perfect the way it is" Yes it is and now its yours! Wish you were here. We are hooking up with a burgh visitor tonight thats picking up his car and heading to the Pirates game.

All I get is red X's on all your pics. Can you load it as an attachment. Dying to see your Punisher skull hood.

Looks good! I got the tint put on it Friday. Make a huge difference IMO.

I had the "eyebrow" on my 4th Gen and was contemplating putting it on this one. The only problem was that I could barely see street lights at night. I had to duck down below the "brow" to see the lights. We did not put it on this car. I'm going to have to show my wife and see what she thinks of yours. Could you do a head on shot of it if you could....like, from up high?

I'll work on it Tag. . . I didn't bring the front below the "legal" limit. We had it about 1/2" below the line but it was way to far.

This is my first car with the "eyebrow". . . reason i got it is the sun visors are.. 3-4" tall. . not much of anything there to help out. Drove it yesterday for 200 miles or so. . . got used to it fairly quick and didn't even notice after a while. . . did help out a lot while driving home at sunset.

Glad you like it... Have a couple other visuals I want to do, but just spent all my money on a Catback system.

Looks good. Question is do you leave the hood closed to show your skull or hood open to show the engine cover on Friday night?
