Well off to spend money, Doris doesnt like the old style ss's but I'm old, therefore old school...lol

Badass boats man. RC boats I haven't gotten into yet, but I love airplanes, helicopters, and cars. Let me know when you go take it for a spin and we'll get crazy with it, lol. I'm still addicted to RC planes though. The fastest plane I had was 180mph, but I want more, lol. RC is wayyyy more fun than people realize, and they think of it as those piles of crap RC toys you get at target. Today's technological advances have change the ball game in RC.

I'ts taunting me.
Ok, because of my jealousy Im gonna play devils advocate here:

You said you don't want to get rid of your SS. So 1.) you don't need two Camaros. 2.) you don't want an $800 car payment and 3.) you don't want 2 car payments.

It sounds like you have a decent down payment, why not use that towards the one you already own? Get a supercharger, suspension package and enjoy.

I'm still learning the R/C helicopter thing. I used to do planes but got out of it a couple years ago. Helicopters is a whole new dimension. I built an electric one to get the hang of it.

One other option is shorty headers. They will bolt up to the factory down pipe and don't require a tune. Also the ARH and JBA shorty headers are smog legal.
I will look into these shorty headers. Thanks.

Good ideas.
