The "Blackhawk"



Backstory: I won this car from the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana Chevrolet Dealers Association. This 2010 2LT Camaro was customized by Real Wheels for the 2010 Chicago Auto Show. He was voted the "Coolest Car" at the show. He spent some time at the United Center where the Chicago Blackhawks play. He rode in front of the players buses at the championship parade. "Blackhawk" was presented to me by team captain Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane on September 20, 2010. This Camaro has both of their numbers located on the hockey stripes, side windows and engine cover. He has their autographs on the dash and the engine cover. I give you the "Blackhawk".

Blackhawk Camaro Specs

Custom Wheels

These awesome 20” “Kibo” design rims from GWG Wheels are jet-black with red accents, and added just the right attitude to the car.


Performance Tires


For additional grip to the road, the custom wheels were wrapped with Pirelli P-Zero tires.

Custom Leather Interior

The creative team used some of the most luxurious leather available from Katzkin Leather to carry the red/black theme into the car. Custom embroidered headrests and center console make a bold statement with the Blackhawk’s logo.

Custom Paint

Lake County based artists, Estrada Customs painted the black stripes, rear fascia and spoiler with the Blackhawk’s colors. The red was also carried into the interior with custom red door panels.

Rear Spoiler

The RealWheels team used an aggressive spoiler design from MPD1 to provide the car with improved aerodynamics and aggressive styling.

Performance Exhaust

For improved sound and styling, the build team used the latest air intake and exhaust system combination from SLP Performance. The 4” stainless exhaust tips are an indication that this car means business.

Custom Billet Accessories

The car features many new products that have just become available for the 2010 Camaro. This includes an assortment of precision-machined, solid billet aluminum parts directly from RealWheels Corporation. The custom fuel door is enhanced with a machined Blackhawk logo. Race inspired billet pedals were installed, and a sport-style race shifter was added.

Stainless Steel Trim Accessories

The team at RealWheels installed their new stainless grille design to provide the car with an aggressive front-end appearance. They added side vent trim and a rear fascia trim piece to provide balance to the design.

HID lamps in the OEM halogen housing with AAC dual color halos (white/red) (replaced)

Very unique. I think I rmember seeing this being awarded to you via video. I work for the Hurricanes and wish some local dealership would customize a 2011 Camaro - that would be awesome..

I like the custom interior...

I'll be at Oshawa in June, so you can see it in person!

Showstopper is doing some under hood accessories this week.

I told the guys at the dealership, where my car came from, that the car in the poster is not my car. They were clueless. Haha, clearly, it has the RS package. The grille isn't custom, bowties are different, it's missing graphics and the wheels aren't the same. Let's not talk about the tint! LOL, which I will be getting as soon as the weather warms up. But enjoy the poster anyway!
