Its amazing to be able to say you drive your dream car, especially one you never thought you would have the privilege of owning.

Because of your thread alone, im going to take my time and make by build thread a story of my life and what the Camaro has done for me.

Awesome thread man!
Glad you found it TJ! I couldn't agree more, driving my dream car is wonderful!

And please do make a build thread, I'd love to see it and stay tuned with your self and your camaro!

Thanks for taking the time to read! And you're right, a simple car can mean so much!

I'll be sure to take care of her!

Mine all started years ago with My Uncle's 63 Chevy Sepside truck...many years later I begged him enough and he finally gave it to me.......It has been a labor of love but hopefully soon it will be finished......

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

It's hard to see but if you "click to expand" you can see 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.
