Thanks to you Chevy guys for the white/red SS emblem clarifications, there's also a white SS badge on the trunk. It's hard to make out the factory red SS badges, but the white badges seem to go well with IOM and can be deciphered at distance. The more I look at them the better I like them.

Yes, the century club is achieved in seconds and in comfort.

Hopefully I can drive up in the mountains for better pics, soon.

I'm with you SSENIOR , the interior is very cool
I even wonder why GM doesn't carried it on to the ZL1 !

'69 Hugger Orange SS/RS

Thanks for the kind words.

I was doing some background looking for info on a solid lifter 350 and learn if it was a '69 option. I came across this article about a restored '69 SS/RS with the 350 engine. Since we've been discussing the color of SS/RS emblems, I thought I'd post a link to the article; it has white SS badges front/back.

Time to go for a drive and enjoy the vistas.

Enjoy the ride. Looks great and a lot like mine! I will post up on the Tucson Camaros thread when Inde gets closer. You will have a blast!

Great ride and numerous comments in town, 22mpg on a day trip.

Nice ride... I'd ditch the smaller ss emblems on the deck lid since you have those nice retro ones... Seems like overkill having two on the front and two on the rear. Good find, sir. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy mine!

Nice!

Car is IOM, for sure. It looks red until its next to a red one. And everyone commenting on the "red" leather... It's orange too.

Don't like the wheels but the car otherwise is nice.

The Foose wheels aren't bad looking, however, I prefer the looks of the ZL1 wheels and at some point in time will make the change. I'll need input on rim width, off set and tire size given planned, future mods.

Currently I'm looking at installing Pfadt headers + high flow cats as the first mod + the normal CAI. Monday I'll give a call on the headers to learn the introductory costs and then go from there.

In time, a future goal is to do a cam change. Haven' t completed an exhaustive research on the cam change, but something along the lines of a Lingenfelter, Comp Cams, installation complete with the nuances of the L99 motor. FWIW, I have a nephew in the SLC area who dropped an emissions compliant, crate 454 into a Gen2 Camaro, competitiveness has always been addictive.

This of course takes time and research, but this is a great website to learn from given its collective knowledge.

Thanks all.

Two week anniversary

I've had the Camaro for two weeks now, and five hundred miles if I've done the math correctly. Still get stoked with the driving experience, Chevy did their homework with the gen5 and designed a winner that keeps giving me a big smile.

Being the sentimental guy that I am, and I say this in all humility, I just ordered a set of Pfadt headers as an anniversary gift. Great pricing and free shipping during the promo, should be shipping in about two weeks. Also, a cat back exhaust should be on the market later this summer.

Must be time for another ride.

Nice looking car. Enjoy. Who says us more "mature" guys can't have fun cars.
