Engine cover has undergone an extreme modification. I have a friend with a plasma cutter who is making an insert for the big blank spot but here's what I have so far:

Thanks! I'm real happy with what I've been able to do without spending a lot of money.
One of my dog training students owns a fabrication shop and he designed a front plate bracket for me. It bolts to the 2 bolts on the bottom of the bumper. It's really easy to pop it on or off. I can keep it in the trunk and if I get pulled over for no front plate I can show that I have it and just forgot to put it on after last show.

Just received my set of test tires - no charge for these Nitto Invo's. I am running 9"s all the way around - bought an extra set of stock tires & wheels from a buddy in Seattle. I applied to test some tires a while ago and completely forgot I did so coming home to a stack of brand new tires was quite a surprise. I'm very happy with how they grip the road, and I hear guys are getting up to 30k out of them. I like them better than the stock Pirellis already!
Thanks Nitto Tires, for letting me try your Invos out!

Engine cover - 2013. Thanks to Scott Wood of Spokane Metal Works for the plasma cut wolf sillhouette. Very talented man, he also made a e-z-off front license bracket for me.

And... what every Camaro Girl dreams of- Scott Settlemire aka fbodfather was at the Sturgis Camaro Rally and he was sweet enough to take time to pose for a pic with me and sign my car! Thank you Scott, it was truly a pleasure to meet you!

I've never been a big fan of tint, but when a deal comes along you have to take it. I got a show deal of $100. and he drove out to my house (90 minute drive) for an extra 20. It's 35%. I think it looks pretty good, and it keeps the Spokane summer sun at bay quite nicely.

Unless I missed it some where why the heck hasn't this vehicle made COTW. You have built one beautiful personnel machine there. I love all the work you have put into it & all your personnel touches. You have definitely made this 1 of a kind. You husband has got to be very proud of what you have done. You definitely have my vote 4 COTW And I'm partial to IBM. I went to the dealer to order a CGM and spotted the IBM & that was it.

I believe someone or yourself has to nominate your Camaro to be eligible for the COTW. There is a thread out there somewhere on this subject.

Oh and I agree, for sure this is a well deserving build of the COTW award.
