Personally, I'd love to do a cross country trip in my Camaro.


Off topic....Where did you get that Stevenson Motorsports slot car?!?! That's frickin sweet!
Wear and tear and mileage on your own personal car you're making payments on vs. a rental car.

I'd rent a comfortable vehicle so I can enjoy the trip.

Make sure to put a full size Calgan car bra on your car and protect it as much as possible to maintain its aesthetic integrity. If you don't, you'll rock-chip and bug splatter that front bumper to oblivion. Then take it off once you arrive to your new home.

Might want to be extra safe and put on mirror covers too.

+1 million.

There was a guy in a CAMARO club that had his CAMARO bumper torn to hell because if his Negligence. He rather spend the money on mods to compete with his friend.

If only you can have the side skirts and lower rear panel protecting by the bra to. Those areas are soft spots for chips

I have not gone coast to coast, but I have gone from Pensacola to Roswell NM solo and it is lots of fun. Take a week or 10 days and a route through some cool places and enjoy the ride.

3M sells a DIY spray-on clear bra that they say can be peeled off at any time and not damage the paint.

If it's legit it sounds like a great product. You can spray the whole front, the mirrors, the lower half of the doors, etc.

I'm about to do the same thing in July and I'm pretty excited about it. I'll be headed from Florida to California. Driven across the country several times but never in my Camaro. Flying is boring, and uncomfortable anyway.
