3 weeks ago with a day off and a random feeling I went and traded in my '11 SW 1LT in for a '10 CGM 2SS/RS.
Equipped with a sunroof and all the other goodies I never had on the LT.
I loved my LT but it was almost modded out and still not enough power for me.
I felt it was time to step up to a bigger "weight class".
It will be fun to start building another car.

After 2 weeks ( 1 week of happiness and 1 week of total BS ) I decided to take the CGM LS back to the dealer. A week later thru a better dealer I was rolling in a 2011 Summit White w/ CGM Stripes 1LT.

I soon got the mod bug hardcore and brought that car to another level of awesomeness. A lot of money, time and hardwork was spent on that car, rewarded with a C5FII award and a COTW on 2/20/12.

A BIG THANK YOU to Christa & Ivan @ Southwest Speed as I would not have been able to do it without them.

As much as I loved that car I just couldn't get enough power out of it. I always wanted the SS but had to settle for the V6. I tried many times to kick the feeling of wanting in the V8 but couldn't do it.

Congrats on the upgrade, Zombie. I'm sure you'll do an awesome job with this ride just as you did with the SW. Will be watching.

Def not sick of white it was just a random moment of wanting more powa. Lol. I just new if I was gonna trade it wouldn't be for anything other than a SW or CGM fully loaded with bit of extras. No SWs only a CGM in town that fit that qualification.

Oh yeah man. I love this hood. Can't really see from the pics but I had some flat black Transformer 3 style painted on it. Change it up a little different from yours.

Your car looks great! I like the T3 style stripes on the hood also. Do they continue on to the roof and trunklid?
