I kinda think the less noticed the better. Items that you have to look for. Other then the Ol' school SS stripes I had a local paint shop do, you have to look for (or listen).
I like to think of Her as a sleeper, then at a show the hood comes up... the uber trick LED tail lights start to dance. I hang my Bondurant school credentials hang from the rear view. Then it's you own, I don't want to hate but Transformers...... REALLY

Looking good! I like the SS emblem on the interior bezel near the shifter, I haven't seen that done before. Way to represent the AGM!

added the heritage grille finally. Not to bad to install. Didnt remove the front wheels or jack it up. All the hardware was easily (ok well there were a few curse works haha) accessible.



Next up is the SS (sparks) logo).

Hey, Ryan, looks great! I agree cpoboats, the small things are the best! I actually used to live in Carmel, Indiana, so it's cool to see another Central Indiana Camaro owner on the site!! I've been to Avon quite a few times for marching band also.. very great area! Love your Camaro, btw.
