Thanks!!! Glad you like the wheels. It took me almost a whole month to decide on what wheels to get and I finally decided on these "Stance" wheels. My org plan was to powder coat these gloss black right after I purchased em but once they threw em
On I immediately fell in love with the look and have been happy ever since

How about this. Have a small trophy or Tee shirt that the COTW winner could order and buy from Camaro5 says COTW Camaro5 and the dates of the week you win.

I'm 30 and have strived my whole life to not let jealousy or envy creep its ugly head into my mind. Damn you for breaking my track record! Seriously nice ride my friend. I liked IOM on the Camaro a lot. You have successfully made me unsure about whether I want Black or IOM...again! Thanks a lot...

If your car is awesome enough to get COTW, should you still have to pay for the shirt?

Your post had me laughing !! Sorry to break your track record of envy lol. In all honesty the camaro looks amazing in all colors. People tend to not like black because it's a serious pain in the ass to keep clean but you know what when it's washed and waxed and ready for the weekend damn it looks sexy. Good luck on making a decision you can't go wrong though with black or IOM.

I'm still kinda feeling the IOM. Its orange but not overstated. And yes I know all about the black being hard to keep clean. My Integra GSR that I'm currently driving is black. And you're right it does look sexy when its clean. Ofcourse comparing the sexiness of GSR to that of a Camaro is like comparing Chelsea Clinton to Gisell Bundchen! I'm thinking of going IOM and having metallic black Chevy rally stripes painted on and going with these wheels: http://www.tsw.com/alloy_wheels_Strip.php in the black, Or CGM stripes with the same wheels in the gunmetal. Maybe one day I'll get COTW...
