Here's a thread about it if you have a chance to read it.

ACE5 had a meet this past weekend. I had an awesome time there at MTI racing, great shop btw! Anyways here's the group pic I took, I'm the 45th all the way on the front left row.
Please click the bar at the top of each picture to view it full size. They're much better if you do!



On the way home I pulled off the interstate and saw a good opportunity to take pictures, so here they are:











I REALLY like this one. I checked back behind me to make sure I wasn't gonna get hit by traffic while taking pictures and saw an old chevy truck coming towards me, so I just HAD to snap this picture. I dunno maybe I'm weird but I think it's cool.










And my almost identical twin, Tim!

No I don't have pics of the inside yet, haven't thought to do that yet. In two weeks I'm going home, and the car will get an entire detailing then. I'll get some good pictures of it then.

And thanks for reading. I hope you decide to go with a camaro as well!

Well no worries, get the car that suits you. Rest assured that the V6 is no slump, it's got some growl too! Exhaust systems and other mods are typically cheaper for it as well. The V6 definitely makes a good daily driver.


Then again, my 2SS is my daily driver too, so it's definitely a contender if you want the power.

And pretty much any color looks good. It all comes down to your opinion.

Not busting your balls at all, I think someone mentioned it earlier, but be sure you get some pics of the interior whenever you get the next detailing done.

No problem man. Badass we're drivin the same car! What can I say? We picked the best of the lot!
Do you have a sunroof as well? I noticed you've got the Hurst.

And 600 miles is a lot! Glad to hear you're driving that much, mine's my Daily Driver as well.

Thanks for the pics! Makes things easier for me, it'll be a while before I clean up the interior, need to vacuum a little and put leather cleaner and conditioner on the seats again. As well as vinyl cleaner on the dash and doors.

You mean the HUD (Heads Up Display)???

It comes with the 2011 and 2012 2LT and 2SS packages. It's GREAT if you have a manual transmission!
