I took home highest HP on the dyno challenge and I was voted best camaro at the show! Awesome stuff it was a great day and I met a lot of great people which is always what I find to be the most enjoyable thing about these get togethers.

Thanks man! .

All good man I figured I know you were taking on some new clients, summer time, your a busy man. Yeah i'm pumped about the new wheels I'm in between trying to decide on a tire and size right now. I haven't gotten them mounted yet but as soon as I do, planning a pro shoot with the NYC Skyline as the background. Sounds good man, we'll have to connect and then get together at a few shows. There is a dyno day/carshow at RPM Motorsports in Delaware this weekend. Its kind of far don't know if I'm gonna head out.

I really would like to do a photo shoot with the 2 cars, theme could be Beauty and the Beast. Delaware isn't really that far, shit we did 3 shows out that way this month.

Being out in the sun sucks, I'm in doors all day at my job I feel like a vampire on the weekends LOL. Thanks but they don't really have any lip due to the stepped 3-piece design. Thats just the inner of the rim facing the car. They are very nice wheels and I'm excited to get them on. Maybe if I get them on and some pics on 360s website I can get a mag spread and be famous. Then I can sell the car and feel content LOL.

What are friends for my dude . I know the feeling man clients calling me all day at work expecting the world to stop for them and get their shit done. I just tell em get in line LOL. Let me know man, been saving my pennies lately still looking for a place of my own with my girl. So I probably won't drop any coin on tires till mid Julyish. I'm loving the theme of the shoot . Yeah I just checked the weather and it looks like rain all for the next 10 days so what a wash.

Wheels are 22x9 front and 22x11 rear. +25 offset front and +27 rear. Pretty aggressive to get maximum concave without the rears sticking out too much. I'm thinking of selling them though.

I just checked out your thread, sweet build. I think I sold you a V-ring back awhile. I see you changed your mind on the LSX 454 and went with a way more radical build. Anyway, your car is amazing.

Just feel like venting a bit here, I have been loving the car and what it has become and I do love it to death but deep down I have a feeling like I need to move on from it. Its hard to search for places with my girl when I'm so concerned about where the car is going to go versus us finding a nice place. I have poured my heart and certaintly my time/money into so when I think about the car outside getting beat by the elements I cringe. I need to take a step back and realize its just a car and it is certainly not the most important thing to me, she is. We'll see how the search goes and I'm gonna drive it for the rest of the year most likely, do some racing, but if it becomes an issue past this summer sadly its gonna go for real this time. I just can't see spending 250-300 a month to keep it somewhere climate controlled on a battery tender. I'm only looking at renting right now and not ready for home ownership so I won't have anywhere to put it most likely in an apartment complex.

On that note I'll be taking a hiatus from this site for some time to really evaluate things, when I'm on here I only feel it draws me into buying shit I don't need or keeping my focus on the car. Lately I feel it doesn't have much more to offer to me although I really enjoy the site and the people I've met through it and its wealth of knowledge. But then I feel that is irrelevant now because I have found a great shop and great people that work on my car and to be honest I don't need to turn to anyone but them. Without this forum I wouldn't have found them most likely and I don't think I would have been able to get the car to where it is without it. Have gotten some great deals here.

Anyway so adios to you peepz on here for some time, if your curious about the car or anything I have for sale I will be responding to PMs but other than that I'll be out enjoying the car this year. I'm also going to get back into racing motorcycles and riding more, thats where my passion really is I realize and I'm going to be focusing on that as well.

Yes you did lol and I still have it, in a box somewhere turned out we didn't need it but it was worth having just incase. Appreciate your kind words man, Its a great thing when someone else with a sweet car as yourself appreciates it.

You know I appreciate that man, and the same to you for sure. Although we have already shot the breeze via text already about the whole situation. At this time the car is pending a sale, which I hope will move forward shortly. I've got my eye on the prize for the next car and I'm going full force.

Highlights from the event are in here. I'm mixed in throughout the video. Forgive the embarassing 1/4 runs. Quite difficult to do on 22s.

New Wheels, Pro Shoot to follow for 360 Forged. Schedule has been very full lately just haven't been able to make the time. I can say this is the first 5th gen on a set.
