So you're on the other side of the state. When I drive back and forth from Virginia I take 64 untill I hit 255. Of the 16 hour drive I spend about 14 of it on 64.

I think I'd like to have a second as a daily drive, but my dad always talks about all these muscle cars of his era he owned and regrets getting rid of each and every one of them. So in a sense this is the muscle of my era for me. And I want to make sure I keep it forever. I will own other Camaro's as long as they keep producing them, but this is the one that will stick with me.
I have my 93 Z-28 and will have my new SS, (I used to own a 94 Firebird too, the V6, but it was an auto. It was a fun little car when I was in my teen years.) but my dad's back home finishing up the 70 Chevelle SS and is starting to bug me about another father/son project. We went original on the Chevelle. I told him I'd do a 68 or 69 Camaro, but it would be my way. All updated technology, a big block, basically a SMC, just something outrageous...lol I'm looking forward to it, he's been online looking for a straight car for us. But that's a chore in it's self.

White stripes look awesome on these cars for most of the colors.

Everybody with IBM has white stripes...

Makes me want to take my stripes off and get something different.. like CGM.
To me, the car is too dark for white stripes... silver of CGM would be cool

I have CGM rally stripes ordered. The pics I have seen of IBM with CGM stripes look sweet. I will post tons of pics when I get them installed.

Yeah, I have seen one or two with it... and I think its damn near invisible in pictures but will probably look much better in person.

I like the idea of stealthy stripes... Instead of screaming across the interstate to the cops "HEY LOOK AT ME"...
I would rather it be subtle.. so the person easing through the parking lot, or walking up will suddenly get closer and "damn.. that car has stripes"

Almost like ghost flames/ghost stripes.... but not using blue.

I dont want to get the stock stile stripes though... I want to have my stripes cross over the mail slot.... but instead of bumblebee stripes, i want to keep mine narrower... Not as Narrow as SLP.. but basically the same as if you took the stock stripes and slid them down, then just continued them back towards the window at about the same width.

Yeah I want mine to be subtle, stealthy is a good word. I saw this video and decided this is what I wanted.

I fought hard on trying to make my mind up on plain IBM or with CGM strips. If I ever get strips thats the color they will be. Cant wait to se more pics when you get them bigd1276.

I know what you're saying. I originally planned on keeping my Camaro stripe-less. But it's just too damn much blue. I knew that white was just too overpowering. Silver was ok but still too overpowering. It was between black and cgm. After seeing this video and some other members pics I knew it was CGM for me.

Decisions Decisions....I had the same conflict and ended up with IBM w/ Silver just because I wanted it to be more bold. That was about 3 weeks ago. It should be today or tomorrow that it comes rolling in. I love the anticipation. Pictures will follow in a few days...Maybe today? I told the dealer I am off today and would even help them take it off the truck if they needed any help.

I didn't even think of the rural midwest and bugs, but honestly I don't plan on having it out that often. My 93 Z-28 will still be my daily driver. Hopefully I won't be spending hours after my Sunday drives with tar and bug remover like I had to do on past cars. I agree about the lines popping more with the IBM too. I saw enough running around VA of the Summit White before I deployed and I wasn't impressed with the detail of the lines it provided, but still love the White W/IBM stripes combo idea, just like the IBM more I "think"... LOL Plenty of time to make up my mind though.

Where from Dunk? I grew up in Farmington and while I am currently stationed in Hawaii, my parents and a few friends still live back that way, so I visit when I can. Should be getting my IBM soon thanks to CamaroScotty, once I saw the color in person, yeah that was the end of indecision. Take care over there, then come home and enjoy all the fun!

I really like a darker silver or cyber grey for the stripes.

Anyone with IBM tried putting side gills on? Just wondering if the glossy black would stand out at all on such a dark color.

i think people are putting chrome style on the gills. that is about the only thing that would stand out and look ok. most other colors wouldn't stand out since the car is so dark.
