1 black 1ls Finally!

hey everyone!
well, I live in a small town in new york with only one major road going through town with maybe a dozen businesses lined along it. One of them happens to be a chevy dealership and since the fifth gens first started arriving, i could not keep my eyes off of the car. i knew that one day i would have to have it. four years later after originally having to settle for a Kia forte koup, i traded it in and got my first Camaro as well as my first manual car and I am in love. I know it's not the v8, and im quite alright with that while im in college but stepping on that pedal still gives me the permagrin every single time! its only been about three weeks and the urge to mod has already kicked in!

Mods

Plastidipped front and read emblems

MRT v1.0 axelback exhaust (on it's way from autoagenda.com)!!!

Future Mods

New set of 20'' wheels, not sure yet what I'm going for

foglight install

painted brake calipers

painted engine cover

window tint

cold air intake

If I had a LS, those tires and wheels would be the reason...To me, they're they look clean, classic...and they go with your black car....Even if you get something else, I'd still keep those stockers....you might change your mind again someday...lol...

Congrats on the car...Enjoy!

I will eventually get the TSW Brooklands i think just because it's something different but i do agree about the stock 18''s i thought they were bad when i first got the car but they've grown on me and i will keep them even if they are just for the winter ( I live most of the year in Plattsburgh NY near canada, winter is like 6 months long lol)

a couple things I've done to pass the time at college. Added some claw vinyl stripes to the front, and debadged the chevy emblem and put the classic camaro on in the rear.
