On Saturday 9/29/13, my wife and family revealed my garage to me. The garage was powerwashed, painted and stocked with a bunch of tools. This was to become the "lair" for my new camaro.

On Sunday 9/29, I drove from Folsom, CA down to Buena Park (about 6 hours) and traded in Blue Rush for a 2013 Victory Red beauty which my wife has dubbed ZLZBUBB.

#7326 has the following options:

Exposed Carbon Fiber Hood Insert
Suede Package
Navigation

LPO items:
All weather cargo mat
Embroidered Center Console
Premium floor mats
satin finish fuel door (they didn't install, and I don't know if I'm planning on it.)

I have also installed my carbon fiber 4 pack gauge bezel and overhead console already, so it's not stock. Didn't even take me 5 minutes from signing on the dotted line!

Here's to a long and healthy life for ZLZBUBB!

My family really stepped up and did so much more than I ever would have guessed. It was a very good surprise!

Soon as the car is cleaned up, I'll be shooting a few pictures to make a sig from.

Anytime you want to come by and say hello, just lemme know. You can help me plan where I'm putting everything.

Will do. Would love to see it in person. Work has slowed down considerably so we should get together more often like we use to.

Loved your other car brother. One of the nicest street cars out there. You planning on lowering or putting any wheels on your new beast?

The wheels are being put on as soon as I get a jack. I want to save the sticky tires for track days.
