I met steve and his father Willie when they first purchased their camaro at one of the functions that torque sponsored. We became friends that day. Steven aka Tim Bales as he is known at Tri County Camaro may only be 19 years old but he is no joke. Steven not only is your father proud of you so are all your friends at Tri County Camaros. Btw, I met another individual that day....we also became friends and he is the guy behind Tri County Camaros ......Adrian......

your Camaro is absolutely bad azz, I love the glossy black paint on the hood and nose and the wheels look so good.
