"ROGUE's" build thread Rod's 2013 AGM 2SS

So as i started this build thread I realized that my girl didn't have a name.....odd? I'm not so sure. I believe that I spend too much time making sure that she flies under the radar that I've never bothered to name this girl...instead I realize that this is the beauty who's stolen my heart and I only keep the love under wraps! She has now revealed her name to me......."ROGUE"

Rogue- 3: a mischievous person
4: a horse inclined to shirk or misbehave


These definitions certainly sum up this car!!!

Everything started with my dad! He's a huge car guy and he was the General manager of Pearson Oldsmobile Pontiac GMC in Sunnyvale, Ca. He was always a car guy and the apple obviously didn't fall far from the tree. I always loved 1st gen camaros but realized that making a 1st gen a DD would be way too much money so when I saw the 5th gen concept in 2006 I nearly shit myself and proclaimed "that will be mine"....
fast forward 6 years after a divorce and many deployments I finally was able to "pull the trigger" on my very own 2013 2SS/RS AGM camaro.....ahhhhhhh! I loved this car......but stock isn't in my vocabulary!!!!! She needed to be set apart from the group!! This begins my seemingly never ending saga with my "new mistress" hahahaaha
The first picture is the one I found of the car on the internet doing a google search of Ashen Grey Metallic 2SS. I was stationed in Gulfport Ms. at the time and the car was in Atlanta, Ga. "ROAD TRIP". I called the dealer a told them that i'd be there in 3 days to pick it up! I was a determined buyer. I loved the car but always felt that things were missing.....things I thought GM could have done better for the 2nd most beloved models GM has ever produced....behind the Vette of course..........Thus begins the ever going "modding saga" of "ROGUE"

So when I got the car back from paint I installed some Giovanna Monza wheels.....apparently they were part of a "bad casting batch" this is what happened! Luckily Giovanna or WTW corp. was aware of the issue and they took care of it insantly. They were a dream to work with. They sent out new wheels let me remount my tires on them and send the old ones back to them. I couldn't have been happier with their customer service Dept.
