Camaro21's Build Thread (version 2.0)
Camaro21's Build version 2.0:
On September 13, 2009 my car "Rubye" (which I named after my Grandmother that raised me and just turned 96 years old on Sept. 21st) was brought home. I bought her off of the lot as a 2SS/RS, black with cyber grey rally stripes. Since then, I have spent alot of time and effort on her upgrades making her more to match my personality. Now I can truly say i am pleased with the way she has transformed. I have not only upgraded her looks, but her power as well. Some may like it and some may not, but as most of you have told me, it is my car and that's all that matters..
Today I have almost 90,000 (20,000 on new motor) miles on her and she is still going strong. I have attended MTI Funfest I & II and Camaro5Fest I, II and III, Texas Camaro Nationals II & III, Texas Wide Meetup (now known as Texas Camaro Revolution) 1, 2 & soon to be 3.

Looking good Keith
I thought that my car would follow in your footsteps but I'm not so sure anymore. I bought the wife a 2013 ZL1 so my mods are on hold for now. Andy had a smoking deal on a 417 that he was going to put in his but I had just bought the ZL1 and couldn't swing it.
Hopefully we can meet up soon. If work allows I'm gonna try to make a couple of the Houston events while I'm still working in the area.

It will be nice to see ya again and catch up. I am sure the wife loves her ZL1!! Does she let you drive it much? Keep in touch and let me know when you can make it out and play

So, what happened to 1.0???? As always Keith, one of my favorite cars and people...
If the car feels like it is on rails, you are probably driving too slow. -Ross Bentley
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

If you can turn, you ain't going fast enough...
