Camaro_Corvette's 1LE

Day 1: The addiction starts January 6, 2006!

Day 810: Scratching and clawing for information! Pulling hair out
After Lurking for a year, I decided to join Camaro 5 just because of this epic thread!

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...ight=photoshop
Day 1249: Became Moderator of this wonderful forum.
Spent years saving, planning, and preparing for the day that I can finally order my car.
Day 2708: Finally had my 5th Gen delivered to my door by Becky D and Rodgers Chevrolet!!! Victory Red 2SS/RS/1LE with NPP and sunroof denied

That's right! 2708 days! I've been patiently waiting for this delivery for 7 fricken years!!!


I've received the car on June 11th. I love it soo much that it took me 14 days to make a journal thread. But I'm soo happy to finally be a part of this community, and I look forward to continue to have as much fun as humanly possible while I'm here.

Plans and more pics coming soon. Mod bug starting.

Guess I should start with some ZL1 rock guards. Already have a very faint chip in my gills

Not sure yet, right now I'm just happy as hell to have the car. I'm going to put some miles on her till she wakes up. Then decisions will be made.

Non performance wise. ZL1 spoiler, maybe some ZL1 rockers and some vinyls to match the concept.

Yeah, I've been waiting for a long time. There have been bad days and good, but I think the 1LE is a car that is about right for my tastes. Part of me is glad it took me this long to order.

congratulations, that's awesome.
seeing that video takes me back to the dark days of the last decade with the Camaro out of production and people buying trucks and SUV's instead of cool cars.

The concept vinyl hash marks should look awesome. You might be the first one to do it if you actually go through with cutting into the hood wrap.
