Wish I knew. I think a bad valve seat is letting oil in the chamber resulting in oil blow by. The cats burn it up so no blue exhaust smoke.

Just a guess on my part. Very worrisome but going to the track tomorrow anyway. Gotta have fun right, damn the torpedos.......lol

VR with matte black strips was my first choice, but no one had it with all the options I wanted. Closes one was in Texas, and I couldn't wait. So in a way you have the Camaro I always wanted. It looks sweet and you look happier in this one.

I always liked red but being a bit conservative I've had black since 98, before that biege, bronze, silver so this time broke out of my shell and said screw it go crazy and get arrest me red! Glad I did. Like all colors though, next would have been SIM but no sunroof.
I know what your saying about finding one, only VR M6 with sunroof(Doris' must list) in Cali and AZ!

And for me the M6 with Hurst shifter.A stick guy in Camaro's since 83, and this one is the best and easist to drive.

Yes, much happier now

You should clay and wax Snoopy. Did mine with Adams last week and what a difference. Shines better than the day I picked it up.

Mine is new and the difference is amazing. Always said Adams products were overpriced but bought some stuff on the black Friday sales. This stuff is awesome.

SLP VINYL BLACKOUT PANEL INSTALLED

Put it on 12/23. Slp instructions are lousy, a little backward and overly complicated. Used the parts that made sense and no problem. Today in the bright morning sun took out alot of little bubbles not seen in normal light. All is good
Tomorrow I will put on the chrome Camaro SS licence plate frame(Oh boy mod of the year!)
In January the Lloyds Camaro SS floor mats will be here
