Out with the Black Beast and in with BevoSS.

I traded my black 2010 2SS/RS recently.


Loved the car, hated that it was black. Too hard to keep clean since I drove it daily. Decided to get what I really wanted when I bought that car back in March of 2010. Picked up this lightly used Summit White 2SS/RS with IOM stripes and interior. I would have bought this in the first place had I been able to find one.

Here it is when I picked it up from the dealer.


First pic all cleaned up.


At Texas Motor Speedway


The car came with a Breathless CAI and SLP loudmouth axle back. I was happy to see that since I was planning on doing a muffler delete like my black car. I had the engine cover painted IOM.


One of my favorite things about the 5th gen is the IOM interior. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it almost 2 years ago.


1st appearance mod: Painted Heritage Grille.


Classic style fender emblems from emblempros.



To do list:
IOM bowties
Orange/white Texas License Plates(ordered)
Classic SS fender emblems
Hurst shifter
New wheels-not sure which ones yet.

I'm so glad to finally have the car I wanted all along. I absolutely love it!

I thought that I really wanted an IOM car. When I first saw one, I was in awe of the color. Some will remember these pics. I took them on I635 in Dallas one Sunday as the cars were being brought in for the launch that GM was doing for D/FW.






I still love IOM but I love the classic look of the White/Orange. It just reminds me of the '69 Pace Car and Z10 coupe.

How much did it cost you to change to the white/orange with the dealer?

Nice trade-up........ I suspect it was more than just a paint switch, ya wanted the 11 features as well?

Well it's not an '11 so the only added feature this one has over my black one is the back up sensors. Color really was the main reason I switched.
