Yes me and my son talked with you a bit. It was a shame we never got all the 45th AEs together for a group pic.

For me "6 banger" is a term of endearment or a "pet" name for a V6 that you love. I remember when I was in High School in the late '70s we referred to a 68 Rally Green V6 three-speed that we had a blast in as a "6 Banger".

Just a side story, my neighbor who was several years older gave a friend and I the car for three months with his only stipulation to give the car back without any body damage. He was putting in a 427 and M22 and didn't care what we did to the drive line. We had a blast doing burn outs and running the crap out of that car. In fact, it was that car that made me become a Camaro guy. We hit an exit ramp at a speed where my 66 V8 Mustang would have crashed and burned, but the 68 Camaro handled the curve without a problem. We all had V8s but still loved that V6 first gen so we called it a "6 Banger" to differentiate it from all the V8 Camaros my friends and I had at the time.

So far I've not been able to find a perfect match here on the east coast. I've used a red on front and rear bow but would happier if it was a closer match.

Could I possibly use the word "match" in every sentence?
No I didn't find a exact match, just got as close as I could get. The vinyl I got is just a little bit darker than the stripe. When you stand back and look at it looks good.

Very nice.
Try a strut bar. I painted the bases on mine with metallic black engine paint. Looks similar to the CFM. Also polished the bar with sanding paper and Mothers polish.

Checking in...I bought my 45TH in May, just turned 2K miles! I have loved every mile on the road! So exciting to drive this beast! What's a strut bar do? Any function, or just show?

They stiffen up the front end, and look cool.

Heres mine...

Greetings

Hello All, first post. Just bought a 2012 SS 45 Anniversary convertible. I have several mods in mind but will likely wait till spring for any substantial changes
(Exhaust/Airbox etc). For now I want to change the badging. My plan is remove the bow ties and both small "ss" badges front and back. I originally thought I was gonna put a red "SS" in place of the bow ties and be done with it..These I could get from Sparks Restoration. However I the came across a picture of a red bowtie in the front which I like alot.I would still go with the single, red SS in the back. Small ss badges are gone. Opinions?? Also need a reference to find the red bowtie if anyone can help.Best Regards, Peter

Looking for just the center red? You could just vinyl the center if thats the case. Or you could have one of the vendors here paint one for you.

Heres one... http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=66848

Another... http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=159730

The second one I thought would be cool with the chrome part painted gray, the center Carbon Flash and lighted with red leds.
